This place has everything going for it. Excellent location, attractive building, charming decor..............................but the food is below average for a gulf tourist town. Shrimp overcooked, many items greasy, and not that tasty. Many other options are close by.

I asked the owner, Julie M. If you order a market price menu item you can make it an all-you-can-eat for $5 more.

Their menu and prices are on the web. Google or bing Dirty Dick's Crab House Panama City.... Trip Advisor won't allow web links.

We strive for wholesome, fresh made food. All of our fish are fresh, our shrimp are wild-caught domestic & our crab is fresh blue crab ( not Asian blue swimming crab ). The crab list here is the largest variety around to include Blue Crab , Alaskan King Crab, Snow Crab, Dungeness Crab and Jonah Crab. Crawfish is offered seasonally. We present ourselves as "Seafood with a New Orleans Accent" with nuances of Chesapeake Bay. Since we are originally from New Orleans, we also have entrees like Shrimp Etoufee and other Cajun/Creole delicacies. Our lunch specials start at $7.99 daily.
