Took my daughters and grandson to Uncle Ernie's for supper. Had great calamari, crab cakes, and grouper. Oldest daughter had cheeseburger. She lives in PC and says it is the best burger in town..

The food was bland, but the service was good and the view was nice. Service/food delivery was quick. We sat outside.

Really a nice place to eat by the water. Although this restaurant was highly recommended I was very disappointed with my meal.

We started in the bar and enjoyed some of their own brews - the Blueberry and Grayton Beach Blonde were both excellent. Then we moved into the dining area to enjoy the sunset. I had fried oysters and he had shrimp - both delicious! Staff friendly and competent. We'd return here!

After being referred by a friend we tried out Uncle Ernie's and were not let down. We started off with the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna which was a delicious appetizer. Both of our entrées were very tasteful as well. There was about an hour wait around 6:30pm, but that's the usual. Our server was awesome and lively. Surprisingly they did... More

I was a little disappointed with this place. To be rated high on Trip Advisor I expected fantastic seafood. Unfortunately, what we received was good service and very bland food. The Key Lime Pie was delicious however. We visited Dee's Hang Out the day before our visit to Uncle Ernie's and got much better seafood for half the price. If... More

My second visit to Uncle Ernie's and it was great. The place was crowded but we were seated fairly quickly. Great service. We ate outside in beautiful weather. We had the lunch specials of fried shrimp and fried oysters. Also, had bloody marys and they were very good. We will definitely go back again!!

I split the St. Andrews platter with my 12 year old, wife had the shrimp tacos. Both were outstanding. Our third visit on each of our last three spring break visits to pcb and all have been outstanding.

We came here with a large group of 30 people and called ahead to see if they could accommodate us. They went out of their way to set up the outdoor area for us so we had an amazing waterfront and sunset view. The food was the absolute best we had our entire trip to Panama City and the service...
