Nice Breakfast Restaurant

We had a nice stay at the Pensacola Holiday Inn. We ate breakfast each morning at the hotel. It was moderately priced and kids ate free which is always appreciated. The food was quite good and the service was good. They need to work on their expresso coffee's a bit but that doesn't deter us... read more

Didn't have an elaborate meal, but the oj was fresh and the oatmeal delish. They also have a tasty burger with avocado that I loved. The key lime pie was great, as well. Very pleasant decor with a pool view

The food at Riptides isn't that great but it's convenient if you just want to lounge around the pool or room all day.

We always stay at the Holiday Inn resort while we are in Pensacola beach, and Riptides is just inside the lobby. Very nice place with cute decor. The food is excellent, but pretty overpriced. Your bill can add up quickly! Best burgers anywhere though!

buffet breakfast was pretty weak, not much selection and the hostess service was very disorganized. Wait staff was fine, the need some better greeters with more maturity.

Food was really good and service was excellent! Each booth has their own flat screen tv, which kept the kids occupied. Prices were very reasonable. Also, if you are staying st the hotel, kids eat for free!

We ate dinner here our first night because kids do eat free while staying at the Holiday Inn so that was a plus for us. Food was bar type food that just about everywhere serves.
