Fresh, Local Seafood

This laid-back beach bar is located right at the base of the impressive, and newly remodeled City Pier. The relaxing scenery of the world’s most beautiful beaches really sets the pace for this locally-owned restaurant. Seafood is the specialty, and is all caught locally and hand-selected.

Hook’d is a great addition to the collection of Pier Parks restaurants, so come and join the locals and see what it’s all about…

Rum Runners

Rum Runners Panama City Beach FL

A great selection of finger foods include the ‘Buried Treasure’ and Beer Battered Onion Ring Boat! Rum Runners is not just and wonderful place to get a bite to eat… It’s also a dueling piano bar! Where else can you and your family go out for dinner and see two pianists dueling right in front of your table?

Pianos aren’t the only source of entertainment though, it could be YOU! Attend one of the ‘open mic’ nights and show Panama City Beach what you’re made of…

Hofbräu Beer Garden

This themed restaurant in Pier Park will really take to the middle of a typical Munich beer hall. From the decor, live music, and costumed staff – you will be transported to a completely different place!

Live bands  play tradition German music, free beer Friday (before the keg runs dry), and take our word for this… but they definitely know how to celebrate birthdays. 🙂

Stay tuned for more in Part 2!
