On the Hunt for a Good Oyster Bar!

     When I'm down on the Coast, I'm always on the "Hunt" for a good oyster bar. Well today I found one! Hunt's Oyster Bar in Panama City Beach, Florida was soooo yummy! First of all, the restaurant was small, quaint, painted bright yellow but was hopping with customers!

     I ordered a Half Dozen Raw Oysters and a Seafood Mini Platter which included 3 oysters, 3 Shrimp, grouper and 3 hush puppies. All fried of course! For my side, I chose cheese grits. Who can go wrong with cheese grits on the coast?!?! All of it was delicious and I ate every bite. I did manage to snap a few quick pictures before I finished my entire meal. My favorite moment of the meal was when my server, "Bill", brought me a bottle of his own "Bad Bill" special sauce to try. He says its only for his customers and he grows his own peppers to use in it! I did try it on my oysters... Not bad!

      It's always a treat to stumble into the local oyster bats on the coast. Most of them are locally owned and their employees have been working there for a long time and have an incredible customer base! Thanks for the "Bad Bill" sauce, great service and delicious seafood! I will definitely be back soon!
