As residents of the area, we've eaten at Frank & Lola Love Pensacola in the Margaritaville Hotel several times. While it is always really good, we believe tonight was the best. Our knowledgable and attentive server, Marshall, even offered us the Local 's Discount without us having to ask! I had the rich, cheesy Seafood Mac & Cheese for $18... More

We have eaten breakfast and lunch. The food was always good as was the service. The prices were very reasonable considering this is a resort restaurant. Outside dining available with a great view.

We enjoyed appetizers for dinner....highly recommend the blackened shrimp and fried green tomatoes. Spinach and artichoke dip was also fine. Would not recommend the chicken tenders. Also enjoyed breakfast, but ordered the conservative eggs/toast/bacon meal. View was fantastic. Service was friendly but very slow, particularly during breakfast. Not sure why since it wasn't crowded. Thankfully the view captured our attention.... More

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!

Oh my gosh-you listed a lot of my favorites! Since you are a local, make sure to get your local discount by showing your drivers license! The lava shrimp on a wedge salad is sooo good too. And the salted caramel cheesecake is just a sin-I always have to share! Come back anytime-we have brunch specials on Sundays from 11:15am-2pm! More
