Description: Since opening our first Bayou on the Beach location on the curve of Thomas Drive in 1999, we have been thrilled to serve our loyal patrons with our authentic Cajun cuisine. Our recipes that our matriarch, Donna, brought to Panama City Beach from Lafayette, have created a menu for everyone to enjoy a taste of Louisiana. We take such pride in our fresh seasoned and hand battered seafood you will never leave here hungry! We offer a daily lunch special Tuesday through Friday for your quicker work lunches and of course our full menu is available throughout the day. Everything from our Tartar Sauce, Gumbo, Etouffe, Red Beans & Rice, Boudin Balls, Olive Salad, Bread Pudding, and everything else in between is made from scratch daily. We are excited to announce our newest addition, Steamers & Mercantile! Attached to the West side of the Cafe & Oyster Bar, our Steamers & Mercantile will be serving our Steamed Seafood Menu TO GO as well as a fun and regionally curated Mercantile Shop!

This place is one of the better New Orleans style Cajun food. Reminded me if being in the French Quarter. The char grilled oysters are very good and the food has great flavor. I will do this one again. Get there early to avoid long wait times.

We ordered the charbroiled oysters, shrimp and grits, seafood gumbo and the surf & turf. Everything was absolutely delicious, great environment, service was great and prices are reasonable. We’ll definitely come back when visiting Panama City Beach!

Best place we have eaten this vacation in PCB! We had the tuna dip appetizer, and grilled and broiled shrimp! Kids had chicken and hamburger. Fries are so delicious! I loved my Cajun seasoned ones! Everything was so flavorful and service/prices was great! We highly recommend!

This place had all of our favorites so we had to check it out. Chargrilled Oysters ($16) were small and dry, Royal Red Shrimp ($26) is one pound of shrimp and two sides. These usually taste like lobster but these did not. They were good but not great. Shrimp and grits ($12) was excellent. And the salad that came with it with the bacon Mustard dressing was perfection.
We arrived during happy hour so I was able to get a glass of wine for $3. Our waiter Rick was fantastic.
It was loud and a full house but not too loud that we couldn’t hear each other talk.
There was music starting at 6:00. We didn’t stay long enough to form an opinion. Be sure to try the Bayou Hot Sauce.

Great chargrilled oysters - reminded me of NOLA - pepper jack and bacon were good too. Cocktail sauce was very good. Fried stuff was average.
