    This is one of those "must-visit" spots in the area. The food and service are excellent. There are two large seating areas. If you are have kids, you may put into the "kids friendly" room which is rather drab and does not have the same great atmosphere as the main room.

    Captain Anderson's is as good as it gets. Go early and watch the fishing boats proudly display their "catches of the day" for you. Expensive but worth it.

    One of the top family owned, award winning seafood restaurants. Less than a mile from Seychelles. Waterfront views of Grand Lagoon.

    Expensive but worth it!
    Go to the marina early (around 4PM) and watch the fleet bring in the "fresh catch of the day".

    Capt. Anderson's restaurant is one of those rare "family" restaurants that not only survives, but strengthens and improves through the years. The landmark waterfront restaurant is celebrating its 47th anniversary in 2014, and every year has witnessed remarkable growth without loss of quality. The restaurant has grown to 725 seats and, six nights a week, serves over 250,000 guests during its 8 month season.
    Named among America's Top 50 restaurants, recipient of the "Best Seafood Restaurant" award from Southern Living and Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence," Capt. Anderson's won Florida Trend's Golden Spoon Award for 15 years before being inducted into the Restaurant Hall of Fame in 2005. The Hall of Fame is the highest honor Florida Trend can bestow upon a Florida restaurant.
    Year 'round, the Patronis family works with fishermen, oystermen and others who make their living harvesting the Gulf and Bay waters, to preserve the natural oyster beds of Apalachicola Bay... to build artificial reefs... and protect the fragile coastal ecology. Preserving and replenishing the rich natural bounty of the Gulf Coast is part of the Capt. Anderson’s legacy, one of the most important reasons this landmark restaurant is known for serving more fresh local seafood than any other restaurant in Florida.

    Best service in the world. Get there by 4:00 to get a seat near the docks and enjoy watching the fishermen come in with their fresh catches!

    Tourist Trap. Crowded. Overpriced.
    Try Marina Cantina or the Boatyard instead.
    The farmers market here on Saturday is fun.

    This is always on my list when I visit Panama City Beach. Go early and watch the fleet come in.
