Food was delicious and service was great.
This place was AMAZING! The best crab cakes I’ve ever tasted.
We visit the Fish House every time we’re in Pensacola. The Shrimp and Grits are perfection! The appetizers were the show stoppers this visit. We had the grouper nuggets and the chicken and collard egg rolls! We met the manager Ian and he was super cool too! This has been a favorite spot for 20 years. Oh yeah! Cocktails are always yummy!!
Great food as always
Good overall experience with a couple areas that could use some upgrading. The restaurant is large and has a nice outdoor seating area. The decking needs to be updated and the outdoor bar was closed. The service was solid. They were out of the crab appetizer we were hoping to order so we went with calamari which was very average. Entrees ordered were the red fish, shrimp/grits, and fried chicken. All were excellent with generous portion sizing. I thought the prices were a little high but I would go back for a special occasion. With a few minor upgrades and updates, this would be 5/5!
Excellent seafood at reasonable cost. Service was outstanding!
I thought the Grouper portion was small for the price. It was also cool and not hot
We were celebrating our daughter’s graduation with her MSN and the Fish House was her choice for the celebration. We had a lovely evening with great food.
Amazing dinner for our anniversary!
Good food, but super thick gumbo and extremely small seafood.
sushi menu was disappointing everything else was excellent as usual.
Appears they aren’t fully staffed. Things which normally aren’t an issue were today. Nothing major which I would fuss about just not as great as in the past.
Mother’s Day a day early
The service was very good,
The food was awesome,
The overall evening was perfect would not change a thing
One of the BIG draws and why we chose this location over many other waterfront options was the menu option of fried crab claws ... we got there at 4:30 pm and found out none were available. Pretty disappointed!
I had seafood pasta. Very little pasta for the price. The red sauce takes away the taste of the seafood. My wife had the ya ya shrimp and grits. It was very good but was missing the bacon and portobello mushrooms. My daughter had crab stuffed flounder with asparagus. She said it was delicious but it should have a starch served with it.
Food was excellent! A bit of a wait for it, but it was graduation weekend and we expected that.
Took the family and relatives here for early mother’s day dinner. Was a fantastic meal with great service. Very fresh seafood and great tasting. 100% recommend
The seafood and grits were delicious. The corn fritters were not made there, they are the kind that are pre-made and frozen that you can buy anywhere, then fried. That was a bit disappointing, not that I love corn fritters but that with the wonderful local seafood and other items that are elevated, you get blah sides as well.
My first visit t this legendary establishment and i was not disappointed! Service was excellent (by Alex) as she was personable, attentive, and professional. Everyone’s food was wonderful too. I will be back.
Crabcake was fantastic probably the highlight of night.
Great priced wine. Food was overall Very good.
When we initially arrived we tried to just walk in with no reservation and was quoted a two hour wait time for a table. We declined to wait. This was at 7:50pm. My guest and I returned to our vehicle and checked open table and was able to get an 830pm reservation.
The reservation was confirmed and executed by the restaurant. This was a bit confusing to us nonetheless we went with it.
Recommend reservations. Outside seating available during our visit. Casual dining at a moderate price.
Need more staff to work outside. We waited way too long for drinks and dinner
Food and drinks were excellent, everything was clean. Service was on the slow side.
wonderful environment. food was outstanding. service was great.
The martinis were half full! But the seafood was fresh!
Grilled shrimp and asparagus were excelent. My two companions had fish and both raved about their meals. I will be returning again and will definitely bring guests here again.
Service and food was great! Everybody enjoyed the dinner
Indoor dining is quite loud, tables are VERY CLOSE to each other. Pretty much like group dining. Menus were tragic, printed on printer paper, shortened options. Portions are quite slim for the price.
Out of town friends
Delicious seafood and the best key lime pie we've ever had!
We had a wonderful time. You can tell that they as short staffed as most places right now but we never waited long for drink refills or food. It was very nice.
Nice atmosphere, nice price, impeccable service. Would definitely recommend another visit.
We love coming here for our date nights. The atmosphere is perfect and you can enjoy the conversation because you can hear each other. Highly recommend The Fish House!!!
Great service. Friendly and efficient staff. Amazing food as always.
Excellent food and service cantwait to try it again
Very nice place and the food and atmosphere was exactly what would be expected. We would definitely go back.
