We have eaten here before, in June and with our kids. Liked it just fine. Food was good, and we've never had a problem with service. This time it was just the two of us, in February. Apparently, it was their first night opening back...More

We eat at Dirty Dick's every time we go to Panama City Beach and more than once. We love the food and the service! Their prices are really reasonable too.

Great entertainment by the wait staff. They use a lot of sarcasm and four letter words. Be prepared if you bring your kids. We loved it even though we had to explain some things to our 10 year old.

Skip this. You can do much better. We keep trying it once a year or so, thinking it's going to improve. Done doing that. Service is OK. Food is OK. Nothing special, and certainly not worth the price. And now they're selling all sorts of...More

Took 12 minutes for server to come and acknowledge us. We were about to leave but he kept apologizing. Then when I got my meal my rice was still hard and way under cooked. The people across from us had the same issue. Our server...More

Clean bathrooms, barn-like atmosphere with fair service are the highlights of this corporate seafood provider. The She Crab Soup had a paste-like consistency, was too rich and had a cheesy taste with no visible pieces of crab. Portions were massive. Clam Lnguini was oily and...More

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.
