Posey's Oysters and Seafood in Panacea Florida

Posey's was the place to go for good food, excellent oysters and laid back entertainment. The original building and business opened in 1929, formerly located in St Marks. It had survived storms and a kitchen fire...until 2005.
In 2005, Hurricane Dennis blew through causing irreparable damage. The old place sat by the waterside, a clear danger to anyone venturing inside the dilapidated building.

The new place is in Panacea, roughly 45 minutes from where we live...totally worth the trip for some delicious seafood.

Fried, blackened or grilled, you will be sure to have a great meal if you stop in here.

It's an interesting mix of clientele; there are fishermen, society ladies in Donna Karan, bikers, businessmen all being served by friendly waitresses sporting short white galoshes. Prices are very reasonable and the seafood is fresh. They even have a menu selection for those who like beef, pork and chicken.

But I just couldn't pass up that seafood. Next time I will order the grouper plate with extra hush puppies.

Next up will be Beignets de Courgette (Zucchini Fritters) linked to a book review.

For my American friends and family, have a safe and happy fourth of July celebration. Cheers to all!

Oh - that looks lovely, still not sure that I have tried anything remotely like grits BUT I'd be all over the shrimp.

The Dish with Sam Neill and Patrick Warburton

The Dish is an old movie I had been meaning to post about for a long time. The movie is based on a true story about the Apollo 11 landing ...
