Really good southern comfort food. The best cornbread I’ve ever had, fried chicken was great!
Great menu and outstanding food. Definitely worth a try
I love this restaurant. The food is excellent always. The customer service is exemplary, and we love he chef.
Food and service is always top tier. Flexibility of the waiter was especially refreshing. Our favorite restaurant in Pensacola.
Great overall experience! Food is amazing. Service was great and it’s a very cool location to enjoy either outdoor or indoor dining.
Best server & food was amazing!!
The food is fantastic, as are the service and wait staff, but the noise level is very loud.
The table had a birthday card already set up on the table when we arrived. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent.
The food was great, the prices reasonable and our waitress terrific! Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back!
UPH is a fave lunch spot for me. Eager for the hours to return. I also appreciate the mask mandate.
My fave lunch is the tuna tartare with an arugula salad on the side. The beet salad is also delicious. The pork rinds are sinful, but a nice start.
Our server Megan was amazing!
Only my second time here and they did not disappoint!!
The apps are amazing the pork shanks and OMG strawberry are great together.
Great food and great service. I plan on eating here more often.
Food and service was amazing. Great spot for a really good meal. Love the atmosphere and creative menu/items.
Great food and drinks. Friendly staff and great service
Delicious as always!
This this was my first time at the public house. I made a reservation through open table in that process was very convenient. When I arrived there was plenty of parking and it was easy access. Service was prompt and friendly. I requested a quiet area, this was a challenge in a popular restaurant such as the public house, but they gave us a table in the corner and it was very satisfactory. Unfortunately I was disappointed with the food. I had the fish basket and it was just not very good. I think their prices are reasonable. But unfortunately I just wasn't pleased with the food. Because this was my first time, I would give them the benefit of the doubt, and will give them another try if I am in the area again.
Fantastic food and exceptional service. Good selection of mixed drinks and beers. It’s our second visit, but becoming our favorite place to take friends
Excellent food and excellent service. I could have ordered everything on the menu and to top it off the house cocktails were excellent
Wonderful. Great food. Excellent service
We always have a consistently good and unique meal at Union Public House and great service.
Always a fantastic meal and the staff is always so helpful
We always have such a good time coming here. It’s our favorite date night spot. We had great service and delicious food.
Our group ordered multiple small plates, a salad, and a chef's selection cheese board and they were all incredible. Paired with a bottle of wine, we had an amazing evening. We will definitely be back.
The food was good but they were out of Duck but wasn’t told until we ordered. 😕
Had a great pre-concert dinner with friends! Food was very tasty and cocktails even more so. Will visit again when in the area.
Excellent food and cocktails from beginning to end. Service was also outstanding. One of our “go to” restaurants in Pensacola.
The food was incredible here and the portion size was very generous. The staff was attentive, friendly, and clever. We enjoyed our visit and how to return soon. We don’t often indulge in desserts but the Nutella pie and raspberry gelato was so memorable, that we’ll likely make an exception when dining here!
I had such high hopes for this place! Nice ambiance. Food looked great. This was our first visit and will try again. I ordered the duck confit. Everything except the glazed carrots was too salty to eat. So I politely sent it back and ordered the scallops. The second meal came out very quickly and was cooked perfectly... nice sear etc. However.... too salty. and not just a little salty.... so I ate what i could and informed our server that this too was salty. I didn't want the scallops taken off the bill as I had eaten the remainder of the dish... hopefully it was just a bad night. We will be trying it again in the next few weeks.
Loved the food, service, and atmosphere. I’m excited to return and try something new.
This was our second time and I didn't think it could have been worse than the first. I was wrong. Ordered an app which took forever. Mainly because our server spent more time on his cell phone than doing his job. Then our entrees arrived an hr later after both tables to the side of us had apps, entrees and dessert. They had a different server. A sauce we asked for with our appetizer came midway of our entrees. We had 3 different entrees and each one was so salty they were uneatable. There was no management to be seen. If there would have been one I'm sure the one bartender would not have been doing shots behind the bar!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary this past week at the Union Public House. The food was delicious and the environment was very friendly. I would recommend giving them a try.
As always a great meal in a fun atmosphere. The four of us each ordered different entrees and all food was delicious. None of the four of use had been to Union public in over a years and now cannot wait to go back soon.
Always a great experience! The Ahi tuna was amazing, first time trying it!
Food is usually fantastic but tonight was off a bit.. when for burgers and Bordeaux and burger had to be sent back because it was not cooked right, came out 2nd time well done. Wanted medium. Drinks and cocktails were great. I think just an off night for chef.....
I’ve had multiple experiences and they have all been spectacular. My criticism on this visit consist of two food items. The grouper corn dog tasted nothing like grouper. I would not order it again. The brisket open face was good, not great. The meat contained far to much fatty grissle, this has not been the case in the past. This REMAINS a top choice to bring clients and family.
Our waiter was the biggest grouch. We ordered so much food and bottles of wine. He had a huge attitude and it really was a bummer. We were celebrating my daughter bday and we had 6 people.
Food was not as great as it normally is. The drinks were fabulous though. Hard to mess up wine.
We are great tippers but it was hard to tip someone great when he makes you feel bad asking for water or salt.
Excellent food, excellent service as always!
Food is always exceptional, however, the service Saturday night reminded me why I do not go to Union Public House often to eat. As usual, service was not friendly, and slow. We had 5 p.m. reservations, server did not mention any nightly specials, when I asked her if there were any, she replied that perhaps in a little while they will be informed of the nightly specials, she did not know of any yet. However, UPH Facebook page listed their nightly special, three hours before we dined. I decided to check FB to see if they had posted anything and indeed they had. I would recommend that the servers find out what the diner specials are before they begin their shifts. The restaurant was not overly busy, so I am not quite sure why our service was so slow, and unfriendly. There are too many restaurants with friendly service and servers who are excited about their menus to spend my evening where I feel as if I am inconveniencing the wait staff.
