I liked the retro diner decor. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. I ordered the prime rib and it was the worst I've ever had. I sent it back after it was well done. They brought it back and it was still over done, not tender at all, and flavorless. My husband got the meatloaf and enjoyed it... read more

Wonderful food, atmosphere and service. Everything seems to be homemade. Keep room (if you can) for the pies. Cannot go wrong with Scenic 90 Cafe.

The restaurant is very clean and the waitresses are friendly. I ordered a red velvet waffle and my husband ordered a western omelet. The food just didn't have much taste.

It is like a 50's diner and the food is good, the prices are pretty good. They always have a lot of people there, we usually go for lunch with some friends.

I haven't eaten in a diner since I left New England and it was a treat to visit. There was a wide variety of food to choose from and all 4 of our entres and sides were outstanding. The bread pudding was amazing and of course the name is a clue to the scenic drive overlooking the sound that is... More

Scenic 90 Café on the main drag in East Pensacola Heights advertises "excellent food and snappy service." The service was definitely "snappy", almost to the point of rushing us out the door. Atmosphere is retro Southern of the 50s, minus the jukebox. Our lunch choices consisted of fried chicken -- the special of that day -- and two sides; plus... More

I guess I am just chain restaurant - ed out! This was a refreshing and pleasant change. The menu was full of traditional Southern favorites with a few reminders that we are on the Gulf Coast. Our server, a very sweet little redheaded Irish girl named Kathleen, was friendly, attentive, and very pleasant. Great job, Kathleen. I highly recommend this... More
