Welcome to Runaway Island!

Local, Fresh Seafood on Panama City Beach

A new seafood restaurant, with a heralded theme from the past, is now open on Panama City Beach. Runaway Island Beachfront Restaurant and Grill is 2 floors of local seafood specialties, live entertainment and frosty drinks all with a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico.

Plans for this unique restaurant have been in the making for over 20 years by locals who know fresh seafood and Panama City Beach. The restaurant boasts over 12,000 sq. ft. of dining space, but the crowning achievement is the outdoor deck complete with a boardwalk that extends all the way to the shores of Panama City Beach. Totaling over 6,000 sq. ft. of wood, the outdoor deck lets you take in the Florida sun and landscape of the “World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”. All while you sit back, relax and enjoy.

Great Food. Great Drinks. Great Stories. It’s all part of the Runaway Island experience. Come visit us today for lunch or dinner. After all, life is short… Run Away.
