The food here was very good. Had dinner here while staying at the hotel, the fish was fresh and staff was very well trained. Also had the beef tenderloin which was excellent. Would eat here again.

I loved sitting outside having dinner with the ocean waves as background. Salads were very good with an option for shrimp, fish, or chicken as an addition. The mango ranch was yummy. Service was very good. Breakfast delicious.

We visited just after the official end of the summer season. Restaurant was quiet,service very good, but the food, while well prepared, just missed the mark. While I would not be adverse to returning, I will likely try others first..

We stayed at Margaritaville Beach Hotel, and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and selection of food offered by Frank and Lola's.

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
