We have reopened at 50% capacity. Masks are required. We have a outdoor and indoor seating available.

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.

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.

We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated as soon as we got there. The place was already packed! We didn’t have one bad dish. We started with the beef carpaccio and boiled peanuts. Carpaccio is always a go to for me and the Unions is in my top 2. I had the pork shank with collards & Mac & cheese. The shank is big enough for 2-3 people! I added chimichurri on the side. Collards are very good and spicy. My husband had the brown butter grouper dish and it was cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back.

Upscale without being pretentious. We enjoyed every aspect of the experience in particular the courteious and friendly wait staff, the small attention to detail and the overall creativity in the entrees.

Made a decision last minute to eat at UPH. Found a table on OpenTable we reserved and were seated right away when we showed up. We got the Arugula Salad, Beef Carpaccio, and split the Brisket and corn bread. Everything was phenomenal!

We visited The Union Public House recently while on vacation. The energy was lively and the food was delicious. I would recommend the Scotch Eggs and the Pimento Cheese Pups as an appetizer, they were both so good! The entires were as well and they were good portions so go hungry! I’m addition there was a lot variety for cocktails, beer and wine if your into that sort of thing.

UPH is always great. The best apps are the chicken wings and pork rinds! All 5 people got the Crispy Pork Shank if that tells you something. I’m sure that there are other great plate options. But I tried the Crispy Pork Shank the second time I went and haven’t never got anything different since. It comes with a Brussels mash (secret star of the show) and potatoes. Just thinking about it makes me want it again.

We started with Tuna Tartare-delicious! We both ordered the crispy pork shanks. The portions were HUGE, the meat was tender and delicious. The potatoes did have the smoky flavor as described-took a little getting used to but were tasty. The brussle sprouts were blah. Our only issue was the noise level. There didn't seem to be any type of noise bafflers to counter the hard walls and surfaces, not to mention the over-served cackler at the bar. If we go back, we'll definitely request the back dining room

Four of us had dinner - it was excellent except the Seared Ahi tuna was way over cooked. Also, do not let them seat you in the little extension room off the back - I could hear every single word said at the next table because it’s basically a concrete block box.

I always get the same thing, but it never disappoints.

The tuna tartare with the arugula salad is spot on.
My friend got the same thing, and the salad is perfect enough to share.

We dined outdoors, which was lovely.

It's my favorite place for lunch. Hoping they bring daily lunches back soon.

Eliana was a delightful server!

I made reservations for Burgers and Bourdeau night for myself, my guy, and two friends. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated right away. Our server Kendall was great. She helped with our drink orders and directed the late-arriving guests to the table. We all ordered the special for the evening which changes weekly and is always delicious.
The atmosphere was great for light dinner conversation.
