Sue's on 390 - A famous Panama City Restaurant

Unfortunately we are closing.

It is with the greatest regret that I have to announce that Sue's on 390 will be closing it's doors at the close of business on Sunday 30th October. This has come about as a result of the widening of 390 and the exercise of Eminent Domain on this property.

I will post again soon but wanted to get this news out as soon as possible.


It is with great sadness that I have to announce the closure of Sue's on 390 at close of business on Sunday, October 30, 2016. My employees and I are forever grateful for our many customers and friends who have expressed their support and encouragement over the past 5 years.

This last year has been especially difficult and disappointing due to an uninvolved landlord (Florida Commercial Properties) whose representatives have chosen to ignore the importance of a continued lease in the face of Eminent Domain proceedings, despite our pleas and the urging from our attorney.

With no lease option going forward, by law FDOT is not required to consider any loss of future income since there is no acknowledged future of the business. This includes any possible help for relocation.

I hope this answers the many questions I get about where we will relocate and how much I stand to profit from the state's proceedings. 

I was taught by my very wise parents to NEVER say NEVER, so keep an eye out for another SUE's on the horizon, as there is still a strong possibility of a new location.

Please keep my employees and their families in your thoughts and prayers as the holidays approach. They are an amazing group of people I prefer to think of as family. I could not have done this without their honesty, loyalty, and respect. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to have them as employees and friends. 

Respectfully yours,

Sue Herring

A New Orleans original! True comfort food for any Cajun and a zesty family favorite of Bay County Residents, Sue’s version has a spicy bite, but maintains acceptable boundaries… you know, like Sue. Anyway, we can’t tell you exactly what’s in it, it’s just that good!

Shrimp J Michael

Shrimp J Michael

Thick and creamy with a slight kick, just enough to keep you coming back for more. Sue’s Shrimp J. Michael’s is tangy, with a touch of curry in a secret sauce filled with a generous portion of shrimp, mushrooms, bell peppers and green onions served alongside a bed of white rice and garlic bread. M’mm Good!

This is a great local place. The service is good and the food is great. The Roast Beef Supreme Sandwich is my favorite, but everything is great.

My family visited Sue's on 390 which has become a custom when visiting this area. The restaurant is moderate in size, with a great menu & a real local flavor with a great local following. 

My wife and I have been to Sue's multiple times since it first opened, and we have never been disappointed. Can't go wrong with their tomato soup. 

Wow - What a gem! Our large party was accommodated and seated within no time. The staff was very friendly and took the time to explain the specials (that are on a board where the entrance is). 

Was really fresh fast and priced right. Super Key Lime pie.
Julie was a super waitress!!!!!
Oysters were fresh, fish sandwich was great and hush puppies were home made.
