Panama City Beach is not called the REAL, FUN, Beach, for nothin’! And after a long day of chillin’ on the sugar-white sandy beaches, we know you want to eat a great dinner and unwind with an adult beverage. These are three of PCB’s most colorful places for incredible seafood, steaks and more. After an amazing meal, let the fun begin with wonderful live music, ice-cold drinks and good times with good friends!

Hammerhead Fred’s

Fred’s has long been a top destination for fun “after” the sun! Fred’s Hangout Pavillion is the perfect place to hear some awesome live music, quench your thirst with over 50 beers on draft, and sample some local seafood, local flavor. Hang with old friends or make some new ones. Across from the Summit Condos. 8752 Thomas Dr. 850-233-3907

Sharky’s Beach Club

In the late 80’s, founder Clark Bennett opened Sharky’s and it was no bigger than the oyster bar that is there today. Nearly three decades later, Sharky’s Beach Club has grown to a 15,000 sq. ft. local favorite for a night time music and fun. Meatloaf, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Kansas are just some of the famous bands to have graced the open-air beach-front stage at Sharky’s. Where the “Tiki Time” attitude reigns. Sharky’s sits on the beach, one mile east of Pier Park. 15201Front Beach Rd. 850-235-2420.

Runaway Island

The legend on PC Beach has returned. Runaway Island is an open-air gulf-front grill & bar you’ll fall in love with. The nightly sunset celebration sets the stage for what’s about to come. Feed your island spirit with outstanding local seafood. After dinner, the cocktails are big, cold and oh so yummy! No worries, it’s always island time at Runaway! Come dance the night away to live music with amazing bands. Sitting on the Gulf of Mexico at 14521 Front Beach Road. 850-634-4884.
