We ate here our first night in town. Although we were not staying at Margaritaville hotel, this was close to our townhouse. It was pretty good. Better than regular hotel food but not excellent. We stuck to chicken, burgers and salad. Didn't try their seafood. We sat out on the back lanai, and the view was excellent. Our server was... More

The food was pretty decent. I had a spicy meat omelet. The restaurant was fairly full, so I assume that is why the service was abnormally slow. The hotel that Frank & Lola's is in is beautiful, and the gift shop is lovely. The atmosphere is spot on, but the service could use some fine tuning. Only eat here if... More

We ate here the first night we got to Pensacola because we were pooped from the day of traveling. We enjoyed our meal but have definitely had better. We ordered the seasonal vegetables which came out half frozen. We both had sandwiches, which were good. The drinks were good. The staff is great though! You can also sit outside over... More

Making a special trip from Perdido Key to see this spectacular hotel and enjoy a wonderful meal, we were really disappointed. The hotel itself is beautiful. Expect to pay$5 valet parking to avoid a long walk up the front entrance. Once inside we were hoping to see a festive colorful restaurant . Instead, it is conservative addition to the large... More

I'm a Pensacola local so I just decided to go here with my boyfriend on a whim to check it out and was so happy with it! No wait at all, beautiful view of the ocean through the windows- and our waiter was so great! Got the fried green tomatoes with shrimp appetizer which normally comes with blackened shrimp but...

Tasty food convenient for hotel guests. On the more expensive side, but definitely a place to try once on vacation

Hotel restaurants have left me unimpressed, so we skipped this one at first and spent more money than we should have elsewhere. Visiting with another grandmother by the pool, I found they had not left the property, eating all meals at the hotel so their grandson could do all the craft times and spend his time playing. They will serve... More

We had the chocolate chip pancakes, cracked egg breakfast and an omelet. The grits were SO good. Service wonderful and quick. Atmosphere is great with a view of the gulf. Exterior tables also available.
