A groundbreaking ceremony was held in tandem with the adjacent Hotel Indigo on March 31, 2021. (The standalone restaurant has been scheduled to open before Hotel Indigo, which is expected to open in 2023.)
In late 2021 the local community was enlisted to nominate and then vote on potential names for the new restaurant, which overlooks the Panama City Marina and St. Andrews Bay. The name “Harrison’s” references both an early name for the town that grew to be called Panama City, and Harrison Avenue, the roadway that leads visitors through the heart of downtown Panama City and eventually to the restaurant’s doorstep.
The new restaurant’s brick construction with wood floors and industrial accents represents a nod to the Panama City Marina’s history as an important centerpiece of the downtown community, while the open space and large windows provide an airy feel and frame views of picturesque St. Andrews Bay. The restaurant’s cuisine reflects the historic location as well, with dishes equally inspired by traditional Southern flavors and fresh Gulf seafood.
This waterfront restaurant features opportunities for outdoor dining, with both covered patio seating available. One of the restaurant’s inside focal points is a large rectangular bar, while outside bonus space includes room for games on the restaurant’s grass lawn.
There is seating capacity for over 200 at the 5,000 sq. foot restaurant, located at 5 Harrison Ave., Panama City, Florida (Downtown Panama City’s Waterfront District, adjacent to Hotel Indigo).
