Coconuts is the new kid on the block, but quickly becoming one of those “local’s favorite” places.

Anywhere known as “the West’s best kept secret” must be pretty good, right?

Best known for some of the freshest Apalachicola Oysters, and their signature ‘Coconuts Shrimp‘.

Coconuts Seafood Restaurant also has outdoor seating. The bar serves a huge selection of craft beers. TV screens line the walls, and they offer a special kid friendly menu.

Everything is made to order, making it as fresh as possible. Nothing you’ll eat here has ever seen the inside of a freezer.

It’s a great place to catch some live music, kick off your flip flops and watch a beautiful Panama City Beach Sunset.

As far as seafood goes, the Grouper sandwich, and the Mahi sandwich are both popular choices. But you will need deeper pockets here than some other places.

If you plan on taking your appetite with you then you’ll want to take a look at the “Beach Party“. A platter of Shrimp, Grouper, Oysters, and Hush Puppies that’s big enough to share.

4. Sandbar ($$)

One of the things that sets the Sandbar apart is the fact it cooks all dishes to order, focussing on freshness.

This is a great place to grab some fresh oysters too. Pretty much any way you can imagine. They’ve got you covered.

If you’re serious about your seafood though, it’s the royal red shrimp, seared scallops and steamed snow crab legs that you’ll want to sink your teeth into.
