Most people who are familiar with Panama City Beach restaurants will probably have heard of 30 Degree Blue, an upscale dining establishment that has always boasted some of Panama City Beach’s most gourmet cuisine. However, not everyone may know that 30 Degree Blue is now under new ownership and that it has exchanged its white linen tablecloths for big screen TVs and paper napkins. What was once 30 Degree Blue Restaurant is now 30 Degree Blue Pub and Eatery, and it’s set to become one of Panama City Beach’s top spots for casual dining, after work drinks and watching the big game.
30 Degree Blue is still in the same stunning location overlooking the Bay Point Marina – complete with spectacular sunsets and gorgeous views. An easy drive from all areas of the beach, Bay Point feels like a world away and provides visitors with a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere just minutes from all the action. Re-opened in December 2009, 30 Degree Blue Pub & Eatery in Panama City Beach is now owned and managed by Terry Nadeau and Andy James, both long-time residents of the surrounding area with a commitment to making this laid-back hangout a Panama City Beach favorite.
The spacious restaurant provides ample seating around the cozy central bar area and outside on the patio overlooking the beautiful pool. Once the weather gets a little warmer, the open-air patio will be the setting for a weekly Sunday brunch, which is sure to be a popular choice for both locals and visitors. Inside, a total of 8 large screen TVs, appetizing cuisine and a comfy vibe puts 30 Degree Blue Pub & Eatery straight on the list of the top sports bars and restaurants in Panama City Beach. The menu consists of traditional American fare with a southern influence (Shrimp Po’ Boy anyone?) and includes delectable burgers, a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, pizzas and baskets. The Pizza is so good you’ll think it was made in an authentic Italian restaurant, and comes with a made-from-scratch crust and a selection of toppings. The sandwiches are also very impressive – try the French Dip with Au Jus or the roasted Cajun turkey club, both 30 Degree Blue favorites!
Bringing the kids? 30 Degree Blue in Panama City Beach has the perfect solution for adults looking for some time out to enjoy a meal or drinks – a separate lounge area equipped with Wii and a pool table, especially for the younger patrons. There’s also karaoke on Thursday nights, and live entertainment from local musician Kevin Jacobs on Saturday evenings.
