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.

Overall a very good meal. Scotch Bonnet Egg and Beef Carpaccio were very good. Entrees were prepared great the only let down was the Carrot cake very dense. But overall a very good meal and will be back!

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.

Our evening was wonderful. Everything seared tuna with curried crab potatoes was out of this world. The scotch egg was "southernized" so different but delicious and their salads, this time for us the butternut squash burrata, are always amazing. We also enjoyed the chocolate mousse which had a delicious soft caramelized center (we left the shell as it was a bit dry and didn't add to the overall flavor) and a lovely meringue with lemon sauce, berries and a bit of basil which we will return for this summer! Overall the experience was great but the fly problem (inside) was so annoying that we can't give it 5 stars on everything. If you go, you might consider requesting a carafe of water if available. We'll do the same next trip.

Made the reservation through open table....... confirmed the reservation by sms........ got a call one hour before the reservation saying some roads would be blocked for a parade and our reservation was only going to be held for 15 minutes after the scheduled time.....I understand a busy restaurant and people waiting...... we were there before our reservation time and all during our time there there were multiple tables empty......So why Union Public House would only honor our reservation for fifteen minutes didn't leave a good taste for me for their restaurant!

Lunch with sisters. Easy to make reservation on Open Table app. Greeter was on point. Waitress was great, just a tad slow getting back to us, but not her fault. She was very busy and no doubt, with the state of things during this period in our country. We are a patient bunch, so no complaint by any means. Food was awesome. We decided to do 3 appetizers (cause we couldn't decide) and share 1 entree, so we had pork rinds, grouper & shrimp corndog, scotch egg, and brisket patti melt. Rinds are tad spicy, which I love on occasion. Scotch egg, good. Just not my thing. Sister's loved it. Corndog was good. Would love to see a butter poached lobster one. The briskett was excellent and absolutely loved the cornbread!

Nice vibe. We could not finish our meals as both were too salty. I’ve never seen my wife spit food out of her moth. She did here.

There were menu items that were listed in the website, but not on the QR code menu (at the restaurant). Food and server were good. It would be nice if we didn’t have to close out at the bar once our table was ready. It seems like there should be a way to combine the two onto one final bill.

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!
