Wonderful atmosphere and great staff and service. The views are lovely of the marina and bay. And the food was top notch. I've been to Miami and have had true Cuban sandwiches but these were right on par. Absolutely amazing!!! Mojitos were amazing as well!!

The view is amazing, we loved walking around and looking at all the boats. The flat breads are delicious!!! The cocktails were perfect. Can't wait to go back.

I have eaten lunch here about a dozen times. The food is consistently good at reasonable prices. I've tried most of the sandwiches (the salmon burger is particularly good), some flatbread pizzas and pasta. I love the lasagna. The staff is experienced and professional.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch with a beautiful view of Pensacola Bay on a beautiful November day. This restaurant has very nice outdoor seating on the bay, not on the street.

This is a must stop when in Pensacola for fresh fish and great burgers at a reasonable price. Open air water front seating watching the boats coming and going. Dock space for the boater who is thirsty and or wants a great meal. Friendly waitstaff with a sandy play area for the little ones.

A great setting at the foot of Palafox Street overlooking the marina. We sat outdoors where we could admire the beautiful yachts. As we'd had a late lunch, we were interested in a lite meal and it was great. Our waitress was one of the most delightful we encounted in a two week trip, full of interesting facts about the...

We travel over from Alabama to enjoy this wonderful spot. We have had Sunday brunch, lunch and dinner and never a bad experience. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Bloody Mary's worth the drive. The menu gives each visit something new to try. See you again soon!
