    Hooters On The Beach: The Best Wings On Pensacola Beach

    by palmas57 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hooters On The Beach

    One of the prettiest places to have lunch or dinner sitting out on the deck. Of cousre there are the Hooter Girls too. We just love the food and the staff is always friendly.

    Favorite Dish: We usely get the hot wings and order a lot of celery with Ranch Dressing to cool things down. If we want to relax we may order Corona's but most of the time after being on the beach all day we prefer a large tea or diet coke.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Crabs

    Beautiful Surroundings, outside seating.

    Favorite Dish: This is a new Restaurant and we have not been able to try it so far. This has been several different names in the past, however the food has always been great. I feel sure that this will become another favorite for us.

    McGuires

    This is really a great place to eat as well as a great place to go and have a good time. There are dollar bills all over the walls, and any place you could think of sticking one. There are $250,000 of one dollar bill today. Everyone can write on the bill and you are to Kiss to Moose as well. A lot of fun and good memories to be made.

    Favorite Dish: Many favorites, Salads, Shrimp dinners, Chicken and pasta dinners. They have the best Margarita's in town.

    decor in the restaurant

    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.

    The Fish House: My Favorite Restuarant In Pensacola

    by ForestqueenNYC Updated Sep 30, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a really nice, slightly more formal restaurant than I would imagine the seafood restaurants at the beach would be. It is right on the bay near Seville Square.

    The food is excellent. On both occasions that I went there, I had fish of the day encrusted in pecans and I thought it was delicious.

    I got the impression that this restaurant was popular with the locals rather than the people who go to Pensacola for the beach.

    The waitstaff is very pleasant and the atmosphere is very relaxing.

    I am afraid I don't remember the price range.

    The Fish House may have suffered some damage from hurricane Ivan, so call before going. I believe the Atlas Oyster House which is owned by the same restaurant group and is right next door is opened.

    Favorite Dish: Fish of the day encrusted in pecans.

    Acme Oyster: Next To The Fish House

    by grandmaR Updated Feb 12, 2008

    Acme Oyster and Fish House at night
    4 more images

    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.

    Mr. Manatees, A Casual Grille: CLOSED

    by ForestqueenNYC Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the perfect place to just sit and relax while having a cold drink, a bowl of chowder, or some gumbo.

    It overlooks the water. Sit outside and enjoy watching the boats.

    You can dock your boat here while eating.

    Since I wrote the original tip, hurricane Ivan hit Pensacola. The restaurant is now closed. It doesn't say why, but my guess is that it was wiped out during the storm as it sat right on the water.

    Favorite Dish: I didn't eat here, only had something to drink and sat in the sun. It was very pleasant.

    Krispy Kreme Donuts: Yummmm

    by ForestqueenNYC Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This obviously isn't a restaurant, but if you haven't had a Krispi Kreme donut, you must stop here. The best time, of course, is when they take them right out of the oven.

    Of course, if you are a low carb fanatic then you will just have to pass on this place.

    Favorite Dish: Any donut in the place.

    Flounder's Chowder House: Funky, Fun, and Fresh!

    by TravellerMel Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ambiance is great - open air, right on the beach. Lots of cool stuff to look at on the walls - boat props, stuffed sharks, boats, old signs. On Sunday, they had a musician singing Jimmy Buffett tunes, which was really nice. You can't beat the price either (see below). They have a full menu as well, but I was happy with the Sunday Brunch menu.

    Favorite Dish: Came here for the Sunday Brunch - good call! I got the Six-Egg Seafood Omelette - you read that right - SIX eggs. Stuffed with fish, shrimp, cheese and mushrooms, it was delicious, even though I couldn't eat it all. It came with fruit, cheese grits (or home fries), and New Orleans beignets. I opted for the bottomless mimosa for an extra $6, bringing the grand total, with tax and tip, to a whopping $17. Can't wait to go back and try the Eggs Pensacola Beach, which is their rendition of Eggs Benedict - with seafood!

    The Daily Grind: Good Coffee, Great Deserts, and Lunch Too

    by ForestqueenNYC Updated Mar 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is on the main street in the downtown area, which was quite isolated when I went there. The coffee shop is very clean and the food is simple, but good, especially the cakes. Southern style cakes are my favorite and that is what they had there the day I went.

    Favorite Dish: Coconut cake. This is one of my favorites and they make it the way I like it without the lemon filling. Coffee, of course.
