UPDATED: New to the Russell Fields Pier, right across from Pier Park, Hook’d is now open and has been the great dining pleasure of thousands already. I was hearing about their good food, easy-going atmosphere and superb location before I even had a chance to swing by and get a fish sandwich.
Well, Tuesday of this week, my wife and I did just that. Well actually, I got the fish sandwich, she got a salad that was beautiful and delicious.
I tell you, if you want truly Gulf-front dining, this is the place to be. The warm salt air refreshes you as you wait for your food, and you have a perfect view of the sunset. The drinks are cold, the food hot and you just can’t beat the location.
Hook’d isn’t goaled at being fine dining, but rather a sandwich cafe. They have a fully stocked bar, a well versed menu and a view that compares to almost nothing else on Panama City Beach. And the fish sandwich I got was amazing. Everything from the fish to the kaiser roll was finger-licking good. Pricing was more than fair and the service was quick and great (thanks Cady).

Locally owned and operated, they are open daily for lunch at 11 am. Check them out when you get a chance, tell Daniel the Manager I said hello, and ask for Cady, she was superb.
