Frank and Lola is a restaurant at the Margarita Hotel. This restaurant is great if you don't want to leave the hotel to look for food. The view while eating breakfast  was fabulous.  I had the Bourbon omelette and it was delicious, so good I order the omelette Sunday morning before we left the hotel. My husband had the vegetarian...

If you're staying at the hotel and don't feel like going out, this is an enjoyable place to eat. I don't think it's outstanding, but there are locals who come from Pensacola to eat here because of the views. The lobster macaroni and cheese is supposedly excellent, but I haven't tried it yet. I'm afraid of the calories!

We are staying here for the 3rd (maybe 4th) time and chose to have the $120 New Year's Eve dinner for two. The appetizers and dessert were perfect. My wife and I both opted for the Filet Mignon as our entree and, while the flavor and degree of doneness were both spot on, both cuts of beef were absolutely so... More

Food was fine. Service was poor and waiter wasn't personable at all. Place was empty and they put is at a table in the middle rather than by a window with the amazing view.

This cafe is inside the Margaritaville Hotel lobby area on Pensacola Beach, FL. Some men watching football on bar TV were load and cheering, so to have a quite dinner was not possible. I ordered a side salad without croutons (I'm GF), but the server brought the salad with croutons. I had a nice grilled veggie and GF pasta dish... More

We ate lunch outside on the deck. The food was good and reasonably priced. I had the crabcake BLT and friend green tomatoes. It was a very good meal. The service could have been a little better but he could have just been having a bad day. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Pensacola.

We have a tough time finding this restaurant until we realized it is in the Margharita hotel. This restaurant is in the hotel with a small amount of seating inside and small amount of seating outside, which I would recommend for the ocean front view. Note that this is a turle-friendly location (meaning minimal lighting outside), so if you eat... More
