<span><span>Since 1967, Capt. Anderson's has innovated many of the Gulf Coast's classic dishes and has won the loyalty of millions of customers and friends. It is a local tradition to dine early at Capt. Anderson's Restaurant in Panama City Beach, and watch the fishing fleets unload their catch.</span></span>
Overpriced and not as good as what I would have expected...Grouper Imperial overrated as well as almost everything we ate...shrimp, fried grouper, stuffed crab (funny chemical taste), and the scallops were tough...the baked potato was hard...the salad was good. The service was pretty good.
Oh man...Back again this year and Captain Anderson's is on the top of my list of things to do.Went this year on my wedding night..Folks were So nice..Food and service is a 10...I wanted to sit by the glass so we could see the boats outside and they did EVERYTHING it took and got me a seat after a short wait.
Yes,it is expensive but were not talking a beer drinking crawfish party place folks.This is fine dining.A big thing to me is they always kept an eye on my drink.My tea glass was full all night.Never had to look for a waiter.
LOVE the boating atmosphere.Trust me,its ALWAYS busy.Im going back again before I leave.Scallops are the sweetest I have ever ate and I'm from Louisiana and this is the best seafood I have ever ate..My wife thinks so also..HIGHLY recommended.
Over priced and a tourist trap. Not open during the off season and caters ONLY to the tourists. Food used to be great but in the past years has fallen off tremendously. Hard to believe the seafood is fresh. The restaurant is in need of repair and is dirty. The table I sat at last time was dirty from the last diner and the wooden blinds were dusty and broken. If I'm forced to pay such high prices for frozen seafood I expect a clean place to eat. Service was atrocious, the server kept forgetting things, like bread/crackers, silverware, drinks and salads. Don't get drawn into this place by the false hype.

We spent a weekend near Panama City recently and were told to eat at Captain Anderson's. The restaurant is pretty and on the waterway; very crowded and busy. I ordered the stuffed flounder, a favorite dish of mine. Well, after waiting quite a long time, I was not impressed. The fish was tough and the stuffing, what you could find of it, totally boring. I've had such great stuffed flounder from little cafes for $11.99 and this $25 entree was such a waste of money. They cram so many tables in the restaurant that I kept getting bumped by waiters going by even though I wasn't really on a busy aisle. We got our salads about 30 seconds before the entree showed up, so besides being faint with hunger, we didn't even eat them because we didn't want the food to get cold. I hope management reads some of these reviews (I noticed others were not happy) and improves the place because I cannot recommend this restaurant even at half the price.
Horrible. The food was terrible, greasy and old. We sent back one of the dinners because it was complely inedible. I would give five stars to Long John Silvers in comparison. Oh.....even with one of the meals comped due to return, our tab for two was almost $85. No Thanks!!!
As a local, I must agree Capt Anderson is way over rated. It's an okay seafood restaurant. It makes up for it by having a great location. I have also cooked at many seafood restaurants. It's pretty good. That's it.
We ate at Captain Anderson's last night, March 1, 2011. I had ecouraged our friends from England to eat there and I was embarrased. They ordered Greek Salad which arrived with one olive, one piece of Feta cheese and browning stalks on the salad. When asked about it, the manager said they were having trouble with the lettuce. THEN WHY SERVE IT?
For the main course, they ordered shrimp and grouper,the latter of which was overcooked. They ordered French fries with both orders which had to be sent back because they were stone cold. Our friends had almost finished the shrimp and grouper by the time hot fries appeared.
True, the manager offered complimentary deserts but since none of us eat deserts, this was of little use.
When I expressed my concerns later to the manager, while he listened politely, I was left with the impression, that it was too bad so bad for us as there were lots of other customers willing to pay big bucks for shoddy food.
The restaurant is definitely not the first class restaurant it claims to be!
LET THE BUYER BEWARE
WAITED IN LINE FOR OVER AND HOUR. FOOD AND SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE. WAAAYYY OVERPRICED. TOURIST TRAP. I HAVE NOT EATEN THERE IN YEARS AND I REMEMBER WHY. I HAVE OWNED A CONDO IN PANAMA CITY FOR YEARS AND HAVE MAYBE ONLY EATEN THERE A HANDFUL OF TIMES. GO BACK ACROSS THE BRIDGE AND EAT AT HUNTS IN OLD ST. ANDREWS. BEST SEAFOOD IN THE AREA.
