After nearly 30 years in business, Panama Hattie's Seafood House has closed down for good in North Palm Beach. 

Customers made it out last night for their last chance to enjoy a meal at the restaurant or a drink at the adjacent Rum Bar. 

The 45 employees knew the day was coming, but didn't know when until about a week ago. 

Plans are in the works for new development at the property along PGA Boulevard and Ellison Wilson Road.  It will be the home of a small hotel, restaurants, offices and retail.
