Inspired southern style. Simple yummy food from local ingredients. We invite you to relax and enjoy friends and family in our backyard with a view. We have the best 'backyard' on the beach with two white sand beaches, covered and grassy dining areas, lots for the kids to do, and a stylish cocktail bar. It's without a doubt the best place on the island to watch a sunset.

Prices of drinks are high......cheap almost unprintable wine. Service is chaotic...server getting lost and you... read more

Prices of drinks are high......cheap almost unprintable wine. Service is chaotic...server getting lost and you searching for him to get check. Better places to go and certainly better food.

Great setting for having a drink. Food arrived on carton plates with plastic cutlery. $7 white house wine arrived in a plastic glass.... Location and atmosphere compensated, else rating would be average.

This was a cool place to eat, its indoor/outdoor eating. I had the popcorn shrimp and HI-C pink lemonade, not many places have that for a drink.

This is an interesting restaurant. It seems to be made out of old shipping containers and looks a little odd from the street. When you enter the restaurant it opens up totally to the outdoors overlooking the Santa Rosa Sound. They have a nice lawn area with seating and fire pits with lounge furniture. On a nice evening this is... More

Order while standing in a line, then take a number? Is this what a burger? Then wait for a server to find you at whatever random pick nic bench you find and then bring your overpriced food? Pass.

Hello Pensacola Traveler, we are very sorry and very surprised to hear that you did not enjoy your experience at many of the places you visited on Pensacola Beach with the exception of Shaggy's. Unfortunately we dropped that concept of the order window and food delivery 1 week after we opened (September 23rd 2013) as our locals were not willing... More

Wanted to try this out for our first visit thinking we could get in and out for a late,1:30 lunch. We were wrong lunch took about 1 hour and 20-30 minutes it was ridiculous! The prices were hign and the food just average.

Thank you for letting us know. I apologize for the long wait for an expected quick lunch. We usually are able to put food out during the lunch hours between 8-12 mins for small parties that dine with us. We did have a big week with a large group of firemen that ate daily with us during their training week.... More

Mid-afternoon lunch on a sunny but cool late November, Florida day. Chose Calamari and Mahi Mahi Tacos from the menu. Service was, cheerful, splendid and swift. Calamari, accompanied by two savory sauces (garlic & herb; and slightly spicy red yum sauce), was some of the best we've had in a long time - lightly breaded, very crisp, sweet, and most... More

Red Fish Blue Fish is an amazing place to eat when you are at Pensacola Beach! The food is excellent, the service is great and the views are the best. I have eaten at several water side restaurants but none like this - you can't get any closer to the water and the views are worth it all! Fun atmosphere... More

The restaurant has a wonderful view, but the food is not tasty. It's served on paper plates with plastic cutlery. The drinks are served in plastic cups, and the prices are high. We sat at a table with uncut grass under our feet, and 2 patrons and a member of the wait staff bumped their heads on our table umbrella,... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. I am sorry that you focused all of your attention on the idea that we serve food on biodegradable sugarcane plates and plastic cutlery. There are many great things about RFBF and we are still making adjustments and changes along our journey to be a wonderful restaurant.... More
