Our second visit was as good as the first. We spent our anniversary at Hemingway's. The food is amazing as well as the view. Great staff. Just a wonderful place to go for food and atmosphere. .

Pasta, seafood, Cuban, burgers, soups, Churrasco, salads, flat-breads, sandwiches.... Jeez, just pick a couple categories and try focusing on doing those food items really well. Our dinner was fair- Hurricane Shrimp, Coconut Shrimp, Pillar Platter. Black beans and rice were overcooked and bland.

We went for late lunch and were able to get a seat w/ a beautiful view of the water. Waitress was nice but seemed a bit ditzy--she kept getting my order wrong and after the 3rd time of me repeating it she still didn't write it down. My son even joked that it was a miracle that it came out... More

Hemingway's in Pensacola beach is a great place to go eat and enjoy a delicious meal with a great view! There is always a seat and the staff is very friendly. There is a great variety of selections for everyone's taste. I enjoy the plantains and I know someone that loves the pork chops..... You will not be disappointed.

With a name like Hemingway's, I expected a bit of pretension, but the service was good and our waiter was very friendly. I had the blackened chicken salad. The chicken was burnt, not blackened, and overall very bland. My friend liked the place better, but I was just say average. Good if you want something different in the area.

This was a wonderful place to eat without the noise and commotion found in other restaurants in the area. The food was tasty and fresh. Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I chose Hemingway's over the cute little wine bar on the boardwalk thinking that waterfront view and the fact that we could make reservations boded well for a finer dining atmosphere than most of the boardwalk restaurants. We were very disappointed. The out door seating had an excellent water view of the bay. That's the best I... More

We had lunch at Hemingway's, and it was worth the dollar toll to cross the bridge into Pensacola Beach. Food was excellent (companion had a shrimp platter and ice tea, I had a Shrimp Po Boy with a Goose Island IPA); the fries particularly so. Only two complaints and the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars - even with... More

We went here for a nice kid free dinner and it did not disappoint. I would not come with kids but enjoyed the atmosphere and food.
