Spring break dinner.

Our waiter was very attentive and kind. The atmosphere was worth the stop. For the food it was split with our family. The salad with mozzarella balls, tomato, chicken and balsamic dressing was very good. My daughter loved the mahi-mahi. My husband got the ribeye and was not impressed. My other... read more

The food is very good, and the views from the outside deck are delightful. But the service is very slow, and except for water refills, not very attentive.

Great view especially on the covered back area, outstanding service (Jordan is a top-notch server!), good pricing, excellent fare. We had the peel and eat shrimp with two sauces, fish and chips, shrimp po-boy and all were very satisfied. Great fries! Park your boat at the extensive pier or just drop anchor, and the restaurant is right there for your... More

The food is cooked very well but the restaurant was very noisy. On top of the noise there was a singer performing. While located on the beach and provides a nice view it is not suitable for business dinners. The atmosphere is suitable for casual lunches and dinners.

Average atmosphere. Average service. Average food. Pretty disappointed really. Kids drinks weren't included in price and 7 bucks for 2 small chicken tenders and fries. Won't be rushing back.

Sadly it was a huge disappointment. They offered drinks as we were perusing out menus and I ordered a Bloody Mary. The others had the champagne brunch. 30 minutes later I was wondering what had happened to my drink. Pitiful excuses. Bartender was over whelmed so they said. Champagne flowed freely though. Finally got the drink, was told I should... More

You have to go and see it for yourself! It's gotten me interested in the life of Ernest Hemingway! Always clean and comfortable. Nice view of the bay. Been there about 4 times now and I'll certainly be going back.

We moved to the Pensacola area three years ago but haven't tried Hemingway's yet, so we thought we would give it a try? We eat out at fine restaurants at least once a week. We ordered the Mojito's which were on special. They were refreshing and quite good. We ordered a shrimp appetizer and it was also ok. Not finished... More
