Went to this restaurant to eat lunch. Ate a salmon salad which was absolutely delicious with both great taste and looks. Had the key lime pie for dessert, which also tasted excellent. Everyone in the party was very pleased. This has been one of my best visits to any restaurant in Pensacola so far! Nice and clean locations (salt scrub... More

Went there on an afternoon when the most place was prepared for a weeding but still got a beachview table on the large balcony. Had the blackended fresh fish which was nice. Lemonade is pink but tastes good. Would go there again.

I had the fresh catch served Florentine style with the fish being char-grilled, topped with a spinach-artichoke sauce and Feta cheese, all over garlic smashed potatoes. This was my best dinner in Pensacola Beach, as it was really very, very good. My husband had the tenderloin churrasco, which were filets rubbed with garlic and spices, grilled and topped with a...

We ate here twice while in Pensacola - once for lunch and once for dinner. For lunch we both had the Cuban sandwich which was fantastic. It was like a true authentic Cuban sandwich. So many restaurants try to jazz it up with something weird but this was a classic version. For dinner my partner had the filet oscar (I... More

We ate at Hemingway's twice during our trip to Pensacola. The food was very good and affordable. The menu had a great variety of options that were not all fried and fatty like other places. The service was great. If you are looking for a local experience, this is not the place, but it is a nice option to have.

My husband and I visited Hemingway's recently. We were very excited about dining at Hemingway's, even though we had read mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. We felt we had to check it out for ourselves. We should have saved our money. The views from the deck are great. We started the meal with the chicken quesadilla type appetizer, which was... More

We were part of a large group of 15 for dinner on a Tuesday night. We had last minute reservations and were accommodated easily. Our waiter was fantastic! Great at suggesting appetizers and meals. The catch that day was Grouper. having never had it, my husband and I both questioned it's best means of cooking. He did the Oscar Style... More

I am a local and the restaurant is what is commonly referred to as upscale tourist. It appears to be a nicer establishment with high end dishes, decor, and prices to match. The problem is that the quality is lacking. The food is much too salty, too expensive for what you can get elsewhere for less, and the views are... More

It was ok. Service was a little slow and our order was mixed up. They recovered quickly though. We only ended up getting a drink and appetizers because of the service and didn't get a chance to try the entrées. We heard the Marlin was great. :/
