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.

My husband and I got the sampler appetizer plate and a full rack of ribs with Mac and cheese and collard greens... we both left so stuffed and had leftovers for lunch the next day! Everything was absolutely delicious!

We originally reserved outdoor seating but there was some confusion and we were set up inside, but the manager opened the door right behind us so we still had our outdoor experience. The food was great as usual and our server was OUTSTANDING

I was just visiting but honestly that was the BEST food I’ve had while in Pensacola and probably the best bbq/soul food I’ve had ever. I will be back in a month or so and already told my husband we are going back there!!! Best food and service!!!

Great location - outside dining was perfect. I ordered garlic & parm wings - which were WAY to heavy on the seasoning. Stick with the staples.

So glad we are able to comment. We are new to the area and wanted to spin the dial. Well the service, seating, and food were just such a pleasure. I asked for a menu to bring home as I did not want to forget this place. In this time of COVID I appreciated the staff sticking to the mask policy and seating be spread out. Could not recommend Five Sisters Blues Cafe more.

One sister had a cayenne allergy and the kitchen staff was fantastic. It was the first time a chef offered to cook a menu item without cayenne if she wanted it. Great atmosphere, great food, great staff. Our server Chris was pleasant and endured 7 cackling women.

The food and service was amazing. We’ve been there before and always have a great experience. This past Sunday they had a band, which it was really good, but it was extremely loud we could barely talk to the person next to us.

My bff was in town visiting and she said she wanted to go to brunch naturally I had to bring her to 5 sisters it’s my favorite brunch spot. It was a hit of course the only thing that would have made it better was sitting inside . The food was delicious as always . 😁

It was ok. The chicken fried steak seemed to be frozen and the gravy was way too salty to enjoy it. The fried chicken and the fried green tomatoes were good though.
