We travel to PCB every fall break. The trip is not complete without a meal or two prepared with Buddy's fresh seafood. We've purchased fresh shrimp for boils, raw oysters and scrumptious smoked tuna dip. Whether you're preparing for your own seafood boil or just...More

Fresh Gulf Shrimp and a wonderful Pandhandle boil come together perfectly at this great location. Buddy's is the best operation going and make sure you get their early cause their is always a line----which goes to show the place is gotta be good.

Seafood is so dependent on supply and demand. In the Summer there are lots of visitors so the prices tend to be higher on popular items like shrimp and oysters.

I'm not sure but after it's steamed it's not difficult at all to shell. Hope this helps.
