The Union Public House
We are confident that UPH will not be just another pub. It will be the one that others strive to emulate. With our attention to detail combined with our commitment to the community, UPH will be a Pensacola tradition for years to come.
We are located in downtown Pensacola just one block north of the Blue Wahoos Stadium/Community Maritime Park; only a short walk from Vinyl Music Hall, Pensacola Saenger, Palafox Pier; just minutes from the Pensacola Bay Center, and just a few miles from Pensacola NAS.
Excellent bar with a good number of signature cocktails. Quail was grilled perfectly medium rare and the pork shank was very tender and tasty. Only downer was the squash that came with the quail. Very heavy with a thick gravy that was just too much; I picked around the gravy for the squash. Overall, great experience and food.
Oysters way over fried.
Everybody in our party of 4 enjoyed their meal. I had my tried and true entree of deep fried oysters, deep fried shrimp (perfectly crispy) on salad greens with spiced peaches, corn salad & lightly dressed with buttermilk-based sauce. Duck hearts were ordered as an appetizer which I did not try. I told our wait person what I wanted in terms of a glass of red wine and was pleased with it before I knew what entree I ordered.
The table service was right on target. We were in the room just off the bar and it was the perfect noise level for us that night because we had alot of catching up to do.
Unfussy, comfortable but with a modern menu.
Great food and service. Cocktails I had on the last trip we're also incredibly creative and we'll done
Outstanding drinks, food, and service!
Everything was great! The seared tuna our waitress recommended was amazing! We also had the pork belly sliders and they were sooo good. The meat was cooked great and the sauces and slaw went really great with the pork. I really love bread and the bun seemed homemade which was really good too. Can’t wait to come back and try something else!
Our second time there and the food was great again. Had the smoked pork butt and it was excellent.
As always service was beyond great and the food was outstanding.
Best cocktails in Pensacola, great food, awesome staff.
UPH has become our go-to spot! The food is creative and delicious, and the staff is always attentive and friendly. Absolutely love this place.
Came in for our anniversary. Wish I could give our server Travis 6 stars. The food was INCREDIBLE and the courses were perfectly, evenly paced. We will be back again and again.
Solid gastro pub with interesting menu, quality service and fair pricing. One of the more reliable restaurants in the Pensacola Restaurant. Have eaten both lunch and dinner there on several occasions.
Great food. Great service. Great ambiance. Great beverages. How fun!
Always fun, food is great, service is top notch. We love going there and they always exceed expectations.
Delicious ribs and rose’ , excellent service with a smile as always ! Our favorite place ❤️
The Moules were outstanding!!!!!!!! The smoked pork butt was also good. Salade was a little wilted.overall. Good
great meal! wonderful service, very youthful vibe. thoughtful and attentive service to the birthday celebration. made a point to let us know we were appreciated.
What a great restaurant.
From the Ambiance, to The Service, to The Food, all good.
Frankie was our server, and he did an excellent job.
It was my first dining experience here, but we'll definitely be back!!
Great date night place! Food was very good! Loved the atmosphere!
Again, a great experience, delicious food, super service and fun ambiance. Had to try the pork shank... yummmmm!
Fantastic food in a low-kew setting. Take some time to talk to your server. They may have specials going on that the chef is excited to share.
There were interesting menu choices and the restaurant has a cool vibe. Service was slow. Our waiter took a long time to greet us and left empty dishes on the table after every visit to the table. That was disappointing because the prices indicate to me that the service and the food should be superb.
10/10 will be back! Food and drinks were amazing, thank you!
The 10 ounce steak was a little cold when it came to the table. I am assuming because i was with a party of 6. The softshell crab was simply "okay." I was expecting more for $12. Overall, it never disappoints
UPH never disappoints!
The staff is always accommodating. Chef Rushing is creative, consistent, and convivial.
Start with the pork rinds for the table.
The beet salad is divine.
My go-to is the arugula salad along with the tuna tartare.
We loved our food, we were just squeezed way too close to other guests. If the whole place was booked it would be understandable but half the place was empty and we were still squeezed into one side. Our server did not seem too happy with her job but she wasn’t openly unpleasant. Would prefer a little more space or a better layout so we don’t have to hear about other diners personal lives while we are very much enjoying our food!
We love everything about this restaurant!
The food and drinks were amazing! Even better than we rembered from previous visits.
Union Public House is always fantastic!
My wife and I go there often and our expectations are exceeded.
Everything about the place is just super.
Every detail was outstanding. From the staff looking happy to be there to the presentation and taste of our meals, nothing was overlooked. A+
The food was very good. The service was adequate but not outstanding. Due to large parties, the noise level was particularly high. Overall, a good dining experience.
Good dining experience.
Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. My favorite restaurant in Pensacola.
I loveeeeeeee this place. This make the 12th time my wife and I have eaten here in the past 2 years! And I celebrated my 40th bday there. Hands down best place in Pensacola. Can’t wait to go back again and again.
It was pretty noisy and busy on a weekday evening and tables are very close together. Overall felt it was an average restaurant when compared to other local choices.
The UPH has some of the best food in Pensacola. The food is wonderful and the waitstaff, Travis in particular, are fantastic.
Great service and amazing food!
If you are in the Pensacola downtown area and want to stay away from busy Palafox St then this is the spot. Also very convenient(walking distance) to the baseball stadium. Frank our server was very efficient and knew just the right amount of attention to provide. Mu wife and I split the Asian wings and they were plentiful and delicious. Wife went with wild boar sloppy joe(she loves her sloppy joes) and I chose the slow cooked pork butt. Both were excellent and the pork butt fell apart easily and was tender as hell.
My wife also had the shoestring fries for her side and enjoyed them.
I would check this place out again to see how the seafood is done but whether you want to eat lighter or have a full meal.....UPH has it all.
Absolutely AMAZING from beginning to end. Being from Atlanta, I consider my self to be a bit of a harsh critic. I have dined in some wonderful establishments. The Union is definitely one of my favorites, since moving here 6 months ago. The beet salad is a must! The truffled goat cheese paired with their very light vinegarette... is perfection. I had the short rib “stuffed” burger! It was cooked to a perfect med-rare as I asked, and the burst of flavor just hits you. Mac n cheese is great, sweet potato fries are super good, my husbands brisket was SO YUMMY! Over all, top notch and we will be back!
Perfect. Little noisy. But always perfect.
