JP's has the freshest seafood you'll ever find unless you catch it yourself. It is ALWAYS busy but the efficiency of the management and staff is better than you could ever expect for an operation of that size. Even if you don't buy anything, it's a treat just to go in and watch the dexterity of the people behind the counter getting your seafood for you all the way to check out where they steam it for you to your spiciness specifications. Prices are more than reasonable. Folks come in there with huge coolers to stock up. If in Pensacola, don't miss this icon. Joey Patti's little cafe didn't rank too high with us---all fried and we don't eat fried---but the market is unsurpassed.

This place came highly recommended from someone at our condo. He could not have been more spot on. If you want the freshest seafood in the are - you have to stop here.

We bought 5 lbs of fresh gulf shrimp - had it steamed, seasoned and put on ice. AWESOME! THE BEST! The albs of shrimp didn't even make it to the end of the day.

We are considering have shrimp sent to our home - it was that good!

I like the sites and history of this place but absolute hate to see great Gulf of Mexico shrimp soaking in water....mushy, mushy, mushy. I have "peeled n eat'ed'em" for over 60 years and I know good shrimp. Being here every summer for eleven years, I go to JP's to see what all the "high rating" is about, then, walk out and go back to Maria's Seafood where all their seafood is fresh and on ice!

Thank Robert A

No way the number 1 restaurant ????. My out of town visitors are confused. Very good fresh fish and steamed shrimp. Fast service Should be listed as an attraction.

Coming in here on a Saturday morning, the place was buzzing. Everything looked fantastic- they've got a huge selection of fresh seafood available across the whole spectrum. There's a small grocery in one section with a deli and a gelato stand. My wife and I bought some sushi for the beach and it was awesome. They gladly filled our cooler with ice at no charge, even though we only bought sushi. Definitely top notch and not to be missed. The only downer is, as far as I could tell, they don't sell booze or have a variety of fruit or produce, but there was a farm stand nearby in the parking lot.
