Breakers Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • We have been going to Breakers
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/3/2013
    We have been going to Breakers for the last four years (we're in PCB, FL from mid-Jan. to mid-March), however, this is the first year we have used Open Table for our reservation. I received confirmation of our reservation on my I-phone, but was told at Breakers that they do not use Open Table. We had no problem with our reservation, but are wondering if Breakers is an Open Table restaurant, or not. If you can answer this question for me, I'd appreciate knowing. We love going to Breakers for the pleasant service, good food, enjoyable live music, and the view of the sunsets on the gulf.

    I just received word that the Breakers is going to close as of the end of April! I'm just devastated!! It's one of my very favorite places on the beach, and I just LOVE Todd Herendeen's music!! I will miss it tremendously if it has to close. I sincerely hope provisions will be made for it to continue its proud legacy on PC Beach!!!

    Some friends suggested that Breakers wasn't quite up to par this year based on their recent dining experience. We took visiting friends there anyway and found it to be WONDERFUL in every way. One of our party had prime rib, one had grouper, one had broiled shrimp, and I had coconut shrimp. All of us LOVED our food and had nothing but good vibes from the ambience. Breakers is still one of the best places for fine reasonably priced dining in PCB!

    We went to Breakers twice, enjoyed the music and the food. I had the grouper grilled the first time and it was good. The second time I had the beef tips over mashed potato and it was very good. We love the big glass windows looking out at the ocean. Our waiters both times were very good!

    The food was good, but the waitress did not ask if we needed anything else and I would have liked some horseradish sauce with my Prime Rib other than that she did a good job. We went with friends out of State to hear Todd. He does a tremendous job as well as the guy ahead of him, great entertainment

    My wife's birthday celebration and with friends from our home city joining us. We truly enjoyed the view and the restaurant having been there a couple of times before. We dined early so as to enjoy/see the gulf but apparently it isn't busy enough for you to have the entertainment this early which is too bad. I would think an adjustment with its starting time should be made due to the short days of Winter; and, we are Winter Visitors. Thanks, Harold

    We went to Breakers for New Years Eve. The restaurant was nicely decorated and had a beautiful huge Christmas tree on the stage. The band which was playing was exceptional. Great variety of music. Now the food...wonderful!! I dont' usually order steak at a restaurant (because I like my hubby's bbq steak) but decided to take the chance here...I was not disappointed. It was cooked to perfection. Likewise for the prime rib which my husband had. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/25/2012
    Would not go here again the worst christmas dining experience we have ever seen. Food was good if the trays were keep full always out of important items. Never did get butter that was requested. Never could get another plate to go up again untill you flagged a waiter that did not know which direction he was going. There was no room at the tables they were basicly right on top of one another. Very over-rated. Just to sum up THE WORST!!!!

    Four of us for Christmas dinner. Price was OK at $25 a head. Food variety was limited and some items not very warm. Not bad but not tasty either. May go back at some time but maybe not. Sort of a mediocre place, definitely not upscale as advertised. Everyone was very friendly and helpful except for the hostess who was pretty busy and maybe she is more friendly on normal occasions. Bus boys were great and helpful in getting fresh plates. Waitress was very friendly.

    Went to Breakers for the Chrisas Day Buffet. Food was okay, the turkey and cornbread stuffing were very good and quite large shrimp for the shrimp cocktail. Desserts were excellent. Service was okay; it was very crowded as it was about the only place to eat at PCB on Christmas. Great view of the Gulf!

    The food was good, the service was good, the restaurant is situated on Panama City Beach with ceiling to floor windows, and a tiered table area, so that everyone is situated with a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. It being a holiday (Thanksgiving), it was quite crowded, but the management had wonderful organization for seating, for waiting, for serving, for clearing tables and reseating patrons. The food was well prepared and appropriate for the holiday. The serving was buffet style, and was very well organized. The dress was casual, and there were many large families sharing a meal on this holiday. All in all, a memorable dinner.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/22/2012
    This was the Thanksgiving Buffett. It was the 4th year we hae dined there on Thanksgiving. As always the food was great. It was all you could eat, and we never felt rushed. Our only complaint was the service. As I said it was a buffet, so the waitress only brought our drins and more plates as needed. She complained about how heavy they were and that they kept throwing more people on her. We had to wait for long periods to get our drinks refilled, and some didnt get refills, as she never came back There were 8 in our party with 3 checks.I tip on the service I receive, but that turned out not to be my choice as they added 18% to every ones check, and our service did not deserve 18% especially since we served ourselves at the buffet.

    The restaurant is beautiful and the view is even better. The restaurant is not very kid friendly, but the live music was good at times. Our service was awful. It took forever to get our drinks, the server seemed very overwhelmed and out of place. When we got our check we had paid an included gratuity that was insane b/c that server would have never gotten that much if it wasn't included. We will not be back!

    Read all the good reviews and the wife and I decided to give this one a try. We were seated by the window (good view) but the musician was playing so loud (and off key) that we looked at each other and decided to immediately leave. So, not sure if the food is any good or not but since the place was about 20% full (while every other restaurant that week was 100% booked) may be an indication.

    We had to wait for a while just to get kids menus. We had a group of 8 which looked pretty common and they messed up my mothers order. She order the Breakers Seafood Platter but without oysters, she asked if she could get extra shrimp, the server told her no problem. She told her that it normally comes with 5 shrimp, 5 oysters and 5 scallops but if she ordered that one that she could get 5 extra shrimp instead of the oysters, when her plate came there were no oysters and no extra shrimp. When we told the server she apologized and said that she'd take care of it but when she brought them out there were only 3 shrimp not 5. We would have said something, but we didn't see our server very often, she had tables all over the place,not her fault.

    We watched the sunset, ate lobster and steak, and listened to the live music. We went on a Friday night in May and only a few tables in the place were occupied. The dining area is cavernous with two walls of large bay windows. It is true that you can see the view, and the musician, from any seat in the house. They even have a small dance floor.

    I confirmed this reservation on OT and then later called (and spoke with) the restaurant to inform them we were running late due to weather. The hostess on the phone said "No Problem...we will see you soon". When we finally got to the restaurant, there was a wedding reception taking place!! The entire restaurant had been reserved yet I wasn't informed prior to going there. It was a horrible first time experience and I won't be returning.
