    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!!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
