We had dinner at Hammerhead Fred's while in Panama City Beach. The atmosphere was great and they had a band playing for entertainment. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. I had the fried shrimp and it was very good. We enjoyed our visit and most likely we will go back.

Went there for dinner and to listen to the music. The fish tacos excellent. Our waiter Troy so pleasant and polite, will go back and look for him. The musician's took more brakes then entertaining us, very disappointing.
