This is a little more upscale environment. The food was not that great. It was served cold and tasted bland. The food was also overpriced. The waitress did a decent job, so I left a cash tip of 30% , but the waitress obviously wanted more, so she added 7.00 more to my credit card. I live 600 miles away, and had a hard time getting Landry's to remove the charge, but they finally did. I would only visit this restaurant again if it was the last place on earth that had food.
Favorite Dish: I tried the shrimp and scallops. I wouldn't call it my favorite.
I had the claws in Garlic and the Florida Rolls, which was extremely tasty and left my mouth watering for more. My husband had the Clam dinner special and he loved it. Definately the place to go for a romantic yet fun date with the one you love. It is next to the beach and has a live band everynight and a tequilla bar outside. However bring a bit of cash for it is a little exspensive and most of the drinks offered are alcoholic! The service was delightful and courteous.
This place is a well priced very good italian/greek food restaurant. It's got pictures of greece on the inside and is actually at the bottom of a hotel but i think they only share a building. Every food i've ever had here has been good. Pizza is very thick with cheese and Italianess mmmm. Spaghetti is great as well as lasagna and chicken paremagne and alfredo and and...everything at this place is good. WATCH OUT the portions are very big a normal person would probly be ok with just a small order of most dishes. or you can take it home and eat later its still yummy.
the GREEK SALAD you must try it is the best salad dressing i've ever had...
prices are very reasonable. I lived in Pensacola for the first 19 years of my life and my family always goes here as we love good Italiand food.
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is greek salad and spaghetti with meatballs. I love spaghetti and always get it but like i said all the other dishes i've ever had here are so very good.
Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, founded Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Q in Gainesville, Florida. The year was 1968. We first came across Sonny's when we ate lunch in the Tallahassee area on the way down to Fort Walton Beach. But there's two of them in Pensacola too.
One of them is up by the highway
I-10 Exit 7
8313 Chellie Road
Pensacola, FL 32526
Store Number: 850-944-6633
Favorite Dish: But we went to the one on Navy Blvd near the base.
They had an interesting salad bar (photo 2), but we stuck to the regular menu Bob had a soup and salad, and I had the pulled pork with no fries and a slice of cornbread. The whole bill was a little over $12.
I asked the people at the Navy Lodge what was a good place for dinner, and they recommended the Fish House downtown. I was doubtful because previously we had eaten lunch at Atlas Oyster and thought it was kind of yuppie and expensive. In fact the Fish House and Atlas Oyster are owned by the same people and have virtually identical menus.
The Fish House had a 20 minute wait, but Atlas Oyster had free tables. So we ate at Atlas. Atlas Oyster was just as I remembered. Expensive. They had sushi - not exactly down home cooking. They served things in big square plates. They had projection TVs on the wall with old time photos and some movie clips in a rotation. Service was a bit slow.
Favorite Dish: Bob had the soup of the day and raw oysters, which he said were good, although a lot more expensive than the ones he had in Panama City. I had the special, which included a salad and fish served on top of mashed potatoes with a piece of chicken on top. Then I had Creme Brulee for dessert.
Marina Oyster Bar is located off a back road in Pensacola, but it's worth the drive. Recovered from batterings from hurricanes, they have maintained a reputation for great food and casual atmosphere. You can't make reservations, and the wait list can get a little long during lunch, but it's worth it. Fresh osyters, fresh fried hush-puppies, cold beer, great fish sandwiches, Marina is great for a late lunch or early dinner after fishing or being on the water all day. It's right on the water, so you can dock the boat right next to it, and grab a bite.
Favorite Dish: Oyster Po Boy, fresh fried oysters and fresh bread! Great hush puppies!
You cannot beat the food at Fish House. Aside from having their very own sushi bar, they have some of the freshiest catch. The less-dressy addition for FH is the Atlas Oyster Bar. Both are located in a clap-board style establishment, right next to Seville Harbour/ Marina. During the summer months, they open the outdoor bar and patio, which overlooks the marina and open water. The waitstaff is impeccaibly polite and attentive, and very versed in the menu selections and specials. It's not overly-stuffy like you'd expect. Everyone is polite and charming, making you feel comfortable.
Favorite Dish: Grits a ya ya. Smoked-gouda cheese grits, bacon, HUGE shrimp... you can't finish the whole thing (hope your hotel room has a fridge in it)!
... and, joy of joys, ice cold Yuengling on tap!
We went to eat lunch in the Cubi Bar Cafe in the museum. This is very convenient if you are in the museum, and is all decorated with the logos of the various squadrons.
Favorite Dish: I had a chicken salad sandwich ($5.50) which came with chips and cole slaw, and a root beer float ($3.00) which came in a cup that I could take home.
Bob had a half sandwich (tuna on rye) and a cup of chicken noodle soup for $5.75 which came with carrot and celery sticks and crackers, and a plain root beer which was $1.50.
A once nice place, the Hong Kong restaurant is now a cheap all you can eat buffet. The place is a bit run down, however for only 8.25 USD, you can enjoy a wide varity and your drinks are included. Beer and adult beverages are extra. Be sure to go dinner peak lunch hours to ensure food is fresh and not out under the heat lamps a long time.
Favorite Dish: Nice Chicken and mushroom with fresh vegetable.
The Monterey Mexican Grill is an affordable family restaurant. Nothing special, but the food was great for the low price.
Favorite Dish: Grilled shimp platter had great flavor and the combination of rice and vegetables was flavorful. The portions of shrimp was good for the low price of $11.00 as the place seemed really busy with local patrons.
After reading some previous posts, me and the wife went on a Saturday afternoon. Restaurant was almost empty, yet service was less than desired. Prices were somewhat high and service was poor. Table we were seated at had to be asked to be cleaned.
Food was ok however there wasn't anything special other than the view.
Favorite Dish: Location is the nice thing about this place. Salads were ok, but sides weren't anything special. Oysters were good, but again a bit overpriced for the quality. Recomend you don't waste your money.
Family restaurant where you get hefty portions for a low price. Dinner like facility where you can bring the kids.
Favorite Dish: My wife liked the fried squash and I was all about the slab of baby back ribs. Ummmmmmmm!
If your into authentic Thai food, a great bite is this all you can eat buffet. Nothing fancy, however for the price of 8.95 for dinner or 7.95 for lunch you get a great selection of thai dishes, sushi and soups.
Favorite Dish: Loved the fresh vegetable "lumpia" spring rolls and the crab cakes!
This is the best place to eat in Pensacola. Beautiful location, right on the bay. The Fish House is a little more upscale with beautiful aquariums, live entertainment on the weekends and a great outdoor bar. The Atlas the more casual restaurant right next door to the Fish House has this deal on Monday and Tuesday nights that has .25 cent oysters on the half shell and two dollar drafts! You can't get that deal anywhere else in town. You have to try the world famous grits a ya ya and finish with homemade key lime pie. Do not miss this place. You will love it!
Favorite Dish: The Grits a ya ya is this dish with local stone ground slow cooked grits, bacon, porto bello mushrooms, spinach, garlic and smoked gouda cheese. Man alive! It is crackalackin!
