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. :/

Ate there with my wife based on location. Had a good meal. Went back two days later hosting a group of 12 and had a great meal and stellar service from server Jordan. We had crab claws, fresh grouper blackened, fresh red snapper grilled, shrimp, paella and Cuban fare such as black beans, rice and the best caramelized plantains anywhere.... More

We stopped into Hemingway's for dinner. We asked to sit outside on the balcony and the view was amazing. Our server was just "doing his job". He wasn't overly friendly just there to take our orders. My husband had the Cuban and it was HUGE! I had the Key Lime Shrimp Pasta.. They really need to drop the Key Lime... More

During a recent trip to Pensacola, my wife and I discovered and absolutely terrible restaurant called Hemingway's. We had high hopes, but despite it's potential, is was a major bust! To get to the point, we ordered the Fish of the Day, which the server said was Red Snapper. When it arrived, it didn't look like snapper, and it definitely... More

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.
