UPH is a crafty southern pub where it all comes together. Excellent food and drinks combined with unparalleled customer service is our mission. Fresh and creative ingredients will be paired with fresh and creative ideas. Exceptional food, superb drinks, and stellar service will be the norm.

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.

This was our first time at UPH but it definitely will not be our last! The servers were all very attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered the muscles appetizers and I’m not sure I’ve ever had anything so tasty! Next we ordered the pick your 5 charcuterie board. It was great also. We finished our meal by sharing the scallops and they were divine! We can’t wait to go back!!

Burger and Bordeaux Tuesday special is always fun. The music is not to our taste and is often too loud. Service top notch.

One of the finest eclectic restaurants in the area. The food, service and personal experience was phenomenal. Made a reservation for our anniversary and was promptly greeted with a personal card at our table from the UPH family. Could not ask for a better experience!

The food was phenomenal, the drinks were amazing but what makes Union always stand out far above the rest is the service. Our server Travis consistently demonstrates amazing service and a spectacular knowledge of the food and drinks offered to ensure you always have a great experience.

The drinks were made well and priced reasonably. Salads were made with fresh veggies and served chilled. The skirt steak was cooked perfectly and served with a delicious cous cous. The ahia tuna was cooked perfectly and served on a delicious bed of squash and kale.

Visiting from San Diego and went with local family (3 generations). Great experience where each item on the menu exceeded expectations. Enjoyed brisket sandwich served open face on big slabs of sweet corn bread. Salad was tasty and generously apportioned. Triple cream cheese was delightfully devoured by everyone especially the grandparents. The mussels were served in a rich and delicious broth and the shrimp and grouper "corn dog" was a hit. Carrot cake ended the meal nicely. And- our waitress was so sincere and helpful that we cannot wait to go back.

This was a perfect way to spend time with my children for an early dinner. Everything was spot on - exactly as you would hope. Service was prompt and professional, the wine/beer and cocktail choices were outstanding, and the food was PRIMO. Some of the best tuna I have had.

Initially, I was a little taken aback by the lack of attention after being seated. We waited at least 10 minutes (maybe more) before we flagged down a server just to get water; but then it dawned on me that like most places, perhaps they're under-staffed.
From then on once Bernadette adopted our table, things were only uphill.
I ordered the tuna tartare appetizer and arugula salad (large enough to share) as my meal. My friend got the fried Sambal chicken sandwich with mac and cheese on the side. She said it was divine, as was mine. Generous portions, so her remains were boxed up to go.
I'll be glad when UPH is open daily for lunch again.

This was our second visit and it exceed our first. The first visit the mac and cheese was quite salty. This time perfect. We share the carpaccio, delicious. I enjoyed the mussels again and my husband the huge burger & mac & cheese. The broth for the mussels is very layered and a pleasure to dunk the bread into. A dessert for my birthday was a sweet treat of chocolate mousse. Cocktails are quality and not stupidly priced. Enjoy Chef-driven food at an unpretentious location.

I can’t truthfully review anything because we were never served. We arrived on time, were seated, and then left to languish for 15 minutes without even a greeting. We left the restaurant with the host offering us “appetizers and desserts on us next time”. Upon further inspection, the one card she gave us is for a single appetizer or dessert. We typically love UPH abut this was very disappointing.
I’m not sure that we’ll be back.
