Worth the wait!

Long wait is definitely worth it! Best meal we had in Pensacola Beach! Smoked tuna dip was great. Crab claws, friend shrimp and other dishes ordered were all good!

Although always crowded from Memorial Day to Labor Day, this restaurant has, IMHO, the best fresh beach seafood. Open year round - and with a friendly, observant staff, I have never heard of a disappointed diner - from toddler to senior (buckets and crayons for the former). I average 1-2 visits a month - with spouse, friends, neighbors, and visitors.

This place never disappoints! Peg Legs is our favorite place in Pensacola Beach. It is in walking distance of our condo which is nice. You can either eat upstairs for a full menu or sit downstairs. Downstairs has everything except the grilled items. The oysters and the peel-n-eat shrimp are outstanding. We always eat here at least 3 times every... More

I called earlier in the day to find out if they took reservations for a large group (11) including one in a wheel chair. I was told they did not take reservations and to expect a wait time of 45 mins -1hr, if I arrived around 6pm. Hoping to be seating sooner, my party arrived at 5:15 p.m. and we... More

We had a short wait to get in, its a very popular destination. There is service upstairs inside, and on the deck. There is service downstairs but not full service. I would return but either go earlier, or wait til later in the evening.

We were renting a condo that was walking distance from this restaurant, so decided to give it a try. When we arrived (around 5:30pm), the place was packed! The hostess told us it would be 105 minute wait, so we wandered over to the bar, found a place fairly quickly, and ordered drinks and oysters. We ended up cancelling the... More

Since we spend the evening in the ocean we didn't get here earlier enough to eat in the main restaurant. However, there's a more informal restaurant downstairs that had live music and a large playground in sand for the kids to play in. We enjoyed our meal, and when the kids were done they played. We got to sit back... More

We enjoy the place because it is so open air and a very lively environment. Food was great too. We hit it at the dinner hour even though it was very crowded we had a really good time.
