Part of the vision for Laketown Wharf Resort is to provide every guest with a complete resort experience when visiting Panama City Beach. A restaurant was a natural piece of this puzzle and plans were started in 2016 to provide guests with tastes of our area seafood. Construction and design group, Pease and Associates, was chosen to bring the vision of the Wharf Local Seafood Buffet to reality. And what was developed is beyond everyone’s expectations. The Wharf Local Seafood Buffet is a nautical-themed place to dine the whole family will enjoy.
“Authenticity” was the key to making the Wharf a unique experience. Guests can see items from actual ships including light fixtures, portholes and nautical ropes for accents. The restaurant has floor to ceiling glass with great views of the Lake. Plus, you can enjoy dining outside along the 50,000 square foot boardwalk.
In May of 2017, Emerald View Resorts was able to get Animal Planet’s hit TV show “Tanked” to come to the property and film an epsiode. The show featured Panama City Beach, the resort and the Wharf Restaurant’s center piece – a 735 gallon saltwater aquarium standing over 9 feet tall.
