The Five Sisters Blues Cafe is a restaurant built on some of Pensacola’s deepest history, right in the heart of downtown. The reconstruction of the old Gussies Record Shop heralds the reawakening of the old Belmont-DeVilliers neighborhood. Featuring good ol’ southern cuisine with kicks of Creole and Caribbean flair, the Five Sisters boasts a fantastic menu, daily blackboard and house specialties, and regular live blues music.

    Food was very good. We sat on the patio but quickly regretted it. We were harassed by locals that were “not in a good frame of mind” all night. The staff tried running them off but to no avail. I do admire the staffs persistence but completely ruined our meal. We took off in a hurry because it was very shady. We were surprisingly not offered any kind of comp or refund, not that I was seeking it. Again, the food and staff were great, the bystanders totally ruined everything. If it wasn’t for that, 4.5/5. DO NOT SIT OUTSIDE AT NIGHT.

    Our 2nd time here. Each time, we were warmly welcomed and the staff does a good job in the area of customer service. Food has always been of a very high quality. In addition to really good food and service, the place has nice warm vibe and I also feel good about supporting a local business in this re-emerging and historic part of Pensacola. We'll continue to support them while enjoying dining with them.

    The food was the star of our experience at Five Sisters. So so good. They had run out of biscuits (we closed down the joint) but gave me Texas toast and a break on the dinner; I had Blackened Redfish with Crawfish Gravy. My oh my. I felt very safe sitting outdoors and the giant fans kept us cool. Our server was great.

    Service was perfect, very attentive. Ask for Savannah. All of our entrees were delicious. My friend had the seafood basket, my husband had the barbecue, and I had vegetables. I grew up on collards and corn bread; Five Sisters is the real deal. So good; ultimate comfort food.

    We unfortunately had to sit outside on the patio during a hot July day and the fans blew extremely hot air around instead of helping with the heat. So I’d say wait for an inside spot if you can. The drinks were good, our food was pretty good (I expected more of the Mac and cheese but the brunch biscuit and gravy was yummy!) and came out in a timely manner. Service was great. I will definitely come back to try for dinner vs brunch and I’ll sit inside

    We had reservations but had to wait about 29 minutes. Not a big deal. Got drinks at the bar while waiting. Seated and ordered food and another drink. We were almost through eating before our second drink arrived. Server forgot part of our order but a bus boy got it for us quickly. Good band. Good food service could have been better but they were very busy.

    We were seated quickly as we had outdoor seating reservations. Server was very polite & helpful with suggestions. My fish was overcooked & bland so it was replaced with chicken at my request. Management was apologetic & gave me meal complimentary. The fried chicken & shrimp were great. I would definitely return if I could have inside seating to enjoy the Sunday Jazz brunch. We couldn’t hear the music outside.

    Great spot to eat. Had 6:15 reservations, traffic was a breeze so we got there a little past 6:00. We where greeted and sat right away. We had the combo appetizer, it came with fried green tomatoes, crab cakes and fried shrimp. Fgt where cut think and firm and had a great crunch to them as did the fried shrimp. The crab cake had a great fresh crab flavor. Came with a creamy Buffalo sauce and a remoulade sauce. Main course we had Chicken & waffle with two piece chicken, breast and drum stick. My only complaint was the drum was not as big as I would expect, this is just nitpicking. The waffle had a great vanilla flavor and came out hot. They do bring a container of syrup. We also got Red Beans and Rice with Pulled pork and a corn muffin. The rice and beans where cooked perfectly, with a nice spice to them. The pork was done nicely as well. We also got the brisket sandwich, bbq sauce was served on the side. This was good so you can control the amount. Brisket can be fatty, but this wasn’t bad, only a few pieces of fat cubes found it’s way onto the sandwich. Then lastly, the burger. It was a really good burger, it was ordered medium, but came out well. Again that’s just nitpicking, definitely not a deal breaker. We’re definitely planning on making 5 Sisters a regular place to eat. I did give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
