Honest seafood without the Tourist Trap

When I am out of town, at the beach, I am looking for a good seafood restaurant that does not fry everything or charge $30 for a basket of oysters. Not that I am unwilling to dine expensively, if that is what I am in the mood for, but when I come off the dive boat and am ravenous at 3:30 in the afternoon, I want some fresh, honest seafood prepared well. Dee’s Hangout provided that!

We moved away from PCB a number of years ago and come back frequently to visit friends. we are always on the lookout for a new place to try out. We went to Dee’s based on their Urban Spoon rating and we were not disappointed.

Our server, Tim, was friendly and honest about the menu. He steered us to their smoked tuna dip appetizer. It was a huge portion full of smoked tuna. It was dense and not mayonnaisey- just like we like it. We also ordered the cajun platter, the blackened lunch grouper and blackened fish tacos. All were delicious and enormous. Come hungry! We especially liked the blackened grouper with sweet potato fries. The fish was flaky and had a nice crust of blackening spice coating it. The sweet potato fries were obviously fresh and that perfect consistency of crisp outside and soft inside. Everything we tried was tasty though so have at the menu.

I wish we would have known about this place sooner in our trip; we would have gone more than once- it was that good. It is definitely on our list for future trips. The location and interior are not fancy, but it was one of the best meals we had on this trip!
