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.

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.

Positive's first - the pork dishes were excellent!

The restrooms smelled & had paper strewn all over the floor.

They were "out of shrimp"....Really??? JoePatti's 1 1/2 mile down the road????

We ordered a bottle of white wine. First a cabernet sauvignon was brought to our table??? Then we were served a different white wine than was what we ordered off the menu and the "wine guy" proceeded to insist it was the same or better.

Our food was presented as who ordered the patty melt and when we said no one, as that is not how it was presented or named on the menu, they came back saying what was our problem. The customer was the problem through out here. Lack of real customer service.

Lots of wonderful places to eat in the area. We will not be back.

We were never informed of the nightly specials, which was very disappointing. The environment was so extremely loud that I could hardly hear myself speak. The food was alright, the drinks could not impress me no matter what I tried. May or may not try again :(

Loved the Pork Shank of course. The Avalon Cab was also amazing as well as the Penicillin. Generous serving sizes. The rice or whatever it was that came with the Grouper was a bit too salty but still very tasty

The food was excellent Lee prepared as usual. The temperature on my steak was just right. Our waitress was a little distracted and had to be asked to bring a steak knife. She additionally had a small mishap when removing dishes from the table. This resulted in several pieces of dirty silverware falling onto the table where they remained for the rest of our meal.
Overall, the experience was still very positive. We are just accustomed two higher quality service from the wait staff.

Met a friend for dinner. Cocktails were great and I ordered the pork shank which was delicious . Our server was friendly; however she came by the table and essentially asked us to leave stating our reservation was for 2 hrs. We were catching up and talking about the loss of our moms and it just seemed abrupt. The message could’ve been delivered in a nicer way; perhaps offering us to move to the bar area. This was the first time I have ever experienced this in a restaurant.
