Great Food

The food here is always awesome. Like to visit during the offseason to miss the summer rush of vacationers. Everything on the menu is great. A can't miss place to eat anytime of the year.

Wanted to get dinner, but there was a very long wait. Decided to grab a drink and maybe apps at the bar. The guy shucking oysters was about 15 feet from where we sat, and it smelled.... well, you don't want to sit at that bar. Will try it again - just not at that downstairs bar!

It was ok... I tried the grouper sandwich based on other recommendations but didn't find it over the top. Tuna dip was ok but small portion. Long wait was not worth the average food. Also don't like sitting at a tall boy table but when you wait an hour you'll take first available. Oyster sampler was good. Cajun and Lafite... More

Well, don't go by what you see, go by what you taste. Not the fanciest, which I like due to the casual attire, The mixed grill was one of the best Grilled Combos I have ever tasted. Oysters and all seafood were incredibly fresh. They were so busy we ate at one of the bars, who cared the food was... More

Spent the afternoon visiting various places in Pensacola Beach. Asked one of the bartenders where to get a good Grouper meal and she said without a doubt it would be PegLeg Pete's. Went there that evening and there was quite a wait for the main tables. I went downstairs and grabbed a seat at the bar. Had the Cajun shrimp... More

Oysters heaven. Wednesday is $0.65 oyster. Great other food too. Little bit of a wait but can go to bar for a drink. If you have kids can play in the sand area to pass the time. Would recommended at least one trip there during your next visit. (If not more)

Always worth the wait! We usually go once a week for lunch and seem to always get the same thing with no disappointment. Baked oyster sampler and Mahi dinner are superb! Nachos for starters is well worth the money! This place stays busy from open to close. We've never waited more than 20 min for first available, but you can... More

So many people! We didn't want to wait for a table so ate at the bar and the bartender said it was a slow night. Wow. The food was good but the crowds would probably keep me from returning.

This is our go-to first stop after we hit the beach and get our condo sorted. Drink of choice is the Shipwreck, which is something like a rum punch or mai tai. It packs quite a punch. Best of all, if you save your (plastic) cup, you can return it for $1.00 a refill. We keep the last set in... More

The oysters were by far the star of the show here. Me and my husband got the sampler and it was well worth it. I got the grilled shrimp which was very good and he got the Mahi mahi, which was good but a little dry. Would definitely go back!
