After months of speculation since the devastating fire on April 28th 2010 left the beloved Treasure Ship restaurant just a shell of its former glory, owners Lisa and Jimmy Todd have decided not to re-build. The historic landmark was opened in 1978 and since became one of Panama City Beach’s favorite eateries, thanks to its glorious waterfront setting, abundance of character, great food and friendly staff.
Earlier this week we may have lost a Panama City Beach icon, The Treasure Ship Restaurant. Wednesday afternoon much of the exterior and an unknown portion of the interior was destroyed by fire leaving 100 plus employees unemployed literally in one afternoon. With the quick onset of the tourism season, this leaves many families wondering what they’ll do to make it by this summer.

This afternoon around 3 pm, the iconic Treasure Ship Restaurant set fire from a presumed electrical issue consuming almost the entire building. From the outside, much of the facade was badly damaged as smoke filled the air over Grand Lagoon, off of Thomas Drive.
