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.

Jazz Sunday Brunch is a little loud but the food and the fun are great! Fried chicken and country fried steak are absolutely delicious.

Friendly and energetic staff.

Love this place.

Music was excellent! Service was great! Food, not so much. Had pulled pork sandwich, fries were cold, didn’t like cole slaw. Perhaps a different choice would have been better.

I was trying to find a fun brunch spot to celebrate relatives anniversary. Being from out of town and never being in Pensacola before, I had my challenges! But we had a wonderful time. The manager saw that we were well taken care of and we were a fairly large party. The staff was attentive and the food was good, but we especially appreciated the music. Everyone had a great time. I would go back in a flash!

My wife and I chose Five Sisters for our 27th wedding anniversary meal. We went with another couple and all of us enjoyed our experience tremendously. Five Sisters topped off four great meals with a great tasting bread pudding. Ooh-la la, we will be back again.

Our server, Christian, was the best!! I had the burger and it was great. My son had the brisket sandwich and he loved it. We were there for the Sunday jazz brunch and the music was really good but really loud. We sat inside, but would sit outside next time just because it was so loud. Not complaining, it’s a jazz brunch, so I knew what to expect. My son, on the other hand, wanted them to open the doors and let some of the music out lol. The food was great, the band was great, and our server, Christian, was great. I am looking forward to going back. 😊

We made a reservation but the tables weren’t set up when we arrived. However, it was quickly done. The restaurant was busy and a bit noisy for conversation. The menu choices were very good as was the food. My catfish, shrimp and grits was just slightly warm but still very tasty. It was a long wait for the food however, close to an hour. Friday nights can be hectic in Pensacola and many restaurants during the pandemic seem short on help.

Myself and onother person ordered the fish basket. Comes with hush puppies. Waiter brought us our fish and slaw and said he would bring our hush puppies later sine they werent ready. We finished our meal but the hush puppies were never brought to us. All 4 if us ordered tea and it tasted like sugar water. Heard someone else at a table next to us complain about their very weak tea also. I told them to bring back a coke instead. Very bad experience overall. Would not go back.

Food is not worth the price. The portions should be bigger for the price. $15 for a appetizer but it can’t feed 2 people, ridiculous.
