Red Robin in Pier Park – Gourmet Burgers and Bottomless Fries

_mg_6588_2Adorned in bright red and various other bright colors the walls are covered with the likes of movie posters, new and old, posters from various bands, such as the Beatles, and other seemingly random protrusions that all help complete the feel of “wholesome fun and entertainment for families.”

Tom Sweet, hailing from the cold streets of Ohio was talked into coming to our quaint little beach town (without much persuasion, might I add) to participate in what some may deem a revolution of sorts for Panama City Beach – Pier Park.  Now, I don’t have to tell you all the great things about Pier Park, I have a whole category dedicated to that, but I will tell you that Red Robin is a welcome addition to the family.

When asked about the signature menu items, Sweet said it’s all about the gourmet burger, bottomless fries and shakes.  “Bottomless fries AND bottomless shakes,” I hopefully asked.  The answer was a quick “no.”  I had to try.  How are the fries?  “Insanely delicious seasoned steak fries.”

With the First Place Blue Ribbon across the top of their web site, Red Robin is proud that they landed on the “10 Best Family Restaurants” list.  The whole place is designed in a way that is fun for everyone, even the adults.  Right when you walk in, you are greeted by Mini-Lady Liberty.

The restaurant is sit-down style with menu items ranging from burgers to salads to healthy kids-choice menu items such as apples and celery.  Prices range from just above $9 to just over $12 and all burgers come with bottomless fries.  Seems kinda high for a burger joint, but we’ll see just how good they are next week.

They are located in the north side of Pier Park, right across from Baja Grill, in the same building as the Great American Cookies.

They are doing a soft training opening next week (that I’ll surely report on) with the official first day of business on March 9th.

  1. Hope the service is better than that in Montgomery. They say bottomless fries but it is an act of congress to actually get a refill on em!


  2. Have no clue how Red Robin is now and after today not interested. I usually twice a week go to different restauants to further let my clients know of the great eating on PCB, however on 20th day of April 2010 i recieved some of the worst customer service i have ever experienced. When I came in I was greeted by a girl on all fours cleaning the television that was inside the floor. When I sat down it took an additional 10 minutes fo someone to get my drink order which the young lady from before had to direct someone my way. when my drink was finally here and and I was ready to order it took an additional 10-15 min for my server to come back. I quickly left and went across the street this great mexican restaurant and had a great lunch. I dont understand Red Robins werent busy at all and would have loved to share my experience with my guest
