Description: The Fish House is local,dockside dining overlooking beautiful Pensacola Bay and Seville Harbor. Just steps away from Historic Seville Square, our award-winning restaurant features an inventive menu of fresh, daily seafood selections, house-smoked steaks, sushi, a handpicked wine list with over 300 wines, and our world-famous Grits a Ya Ya: A delectable Southern specialty of our smoked Gouda cheese grits smothered with a sauce of fresh cream, sauteed Gulf shrimp, spinach, portobello mushrooms, applewood-smoked bacon, garlic, and shallots. Full bar. Late night menu. Brunch on Sundays. The Fish House Deck is comprised of 3,500 square feet of the coolest deck in town on the water! With its own bandstand, fire pit, and maritime-inspired bar with plenty of seating, the Fish House Deck Bar has quickly become the evening gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. Happy hour runs from 4 p.m. till 6 p.m., 7 days a week with live music nightly and Ladies' Night with $2 drinks every Wednesday.The Atlas Oyster House, located on beautiful Pensacola Bay only steps away from its sister restaurant, The Fish House, offers a waterfront dining experience that's a bit more casual than you'll find next door. Atlas is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. It is "the place" to find delicious local oysters. Apalachicola Bay and East Bay oysters are harvested and driven to us fresh each day. Try them raw, baked, or steamed. The freshness and taste of these savory mollusks can't be beat.Atlas prepares locally caught fish and shellfish-such as red snapper, grouper, mahi-mahi, blue crab, and Gulf shrimp-in a variety of ways. The menu also includes cold-smoked steaks, chicken, and pasta entrées as well as daily specials, sushi, and a children's menu. In addition, many Fish House favorites are served at Atlas. The dessert list includes our famous key lime pie. Don't miss Tuesdays for half-price sushi and $2.00 domestic draft beers starting at 5 p.m. and going until 10 p.m.

This was my first visit, but won't be my last. They had a nice beer selection, a very good broiled platter and a nice place to sit at sunset.

“Good food and nice view”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

I had a very good kale and beet salad here and then oysters. Good food and good service. My husband loved the gumbo. I like that they have some original dishes as well as the typical beach food.

“Good but no longer great”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The Fish House still has a great location, and a beautiful deck for outdoor dining and music. The food has been up and down in the last few years. The crab fingers appetizer has a great sauce, but not when the texture of the crab suggests from frozen not fresh crab. The snapper and trigger fish were both good, but bland. Gouda grits are still good but now come thick from a scoop. Sides like the greens have less flavor and lots of stems. In the past this was a wonderful place for fresh seafood. It is still a good meal, but they can do much better.

“Delicious seafood”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

The Fish House provides a great atmosphere to enjoy a delicious seafood dinner. Ya Ya Shrimp and Grits were ordered by three of us and I must say as a Northern girl, I became a believer that grits can be added to the dinner table! The Smoked Gouda Cheese grits were topped with a generous serving of shrimp to make a fabulous dinner combination. We sat inside near the fish aquariums filled with colorful fish. The outside tables also provided a scenic view, but they were already bustling with customers. Great place to enjoy fresh seafood!
