Walked in to the restaurant with no reservations and had done no research on the place. We were very pleasantly surprised. Ordered MahiMahi, LongBoat style and it was simply perfect. Portions were very good, presentation was nice, and the service was excellent. We ordered key lime pie and banana's foster for desert and both were fantastic. Total bill with appetizer... More

Hemingway's is great for quite a few reasons - the place has a calm and chill feel, even on a day when the town is packed. The food is good, and there are a ton of options to choose from. The drinks are always good too (try a dark and stormy!) I love going in here whether I'm in town... More

This is a very good chain with an outstanding location. The patio looks over Pensacola Bay. The Havana Club skirt steak salad was excellent and my husband loved the Island mahi mahi dinner. The flatbread appetizer was perfect in preparation.Service was slow, but welcome to beach life. Best dinner on the beach. We will return.

This place was crowded when we walked in, but we didn't have to wait that long for a table. They seated us outside and we had a nice view. (We had an outstanding view for the fireworks show that was later in the evening). Even though it was extremely crowded, we received great service all evening. I had the wild... More

We had dinner at the top overlooking the sound side. It was a private event for a wedding rehearsal dinner. The food was set up buffet style with an open bar. We had prime rib, shrimp and a selection of vegetables, fruits and appetizers. The staff did a great job setting everything up and making sure everyone was taken care... More

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.
