Description: The Fish House is local,dockside dining overlooking beautiful Pensacola Bay and Seville Harbor. Just steps away from Historic Seville Square, our award-winning restaurant features an inventive menu of fresh, daily seafood selections, house-smoked steaks, sushi, a handpicked wine list with over 300 wines, and our world-famous Grits a Ya Ya: A delectable Southern specialty of our smoked Gouda cheese grits smothered with a sauce of fresh cream, sauteed Gulf shrimp, spinach, portobello mushrooms, applewood-smoked bacon, garlic, and shallots. Full bar. Late night menu. Brunch on Sundays. The Fish House Deck is comprised of 3,500 square feet of the coolest deck in town on the water! With its own bandstand, fire pit, and maritime-inspired bar with plenty of seating, the Fish House Deck Bar has quickly become the evening gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. Happy hour runs from 4 p.m. till 6 p.m., 7 days a week with live music nightly and Ladies' Night with $2 drinks every Wednesday.The Atlas Oyster House, located on beautiful Pensacola Bay only steps away from its sister restaurant, The Fish House, offers a waterfront dining experience that's a bit more casual than you'll find next door. Atlas is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. It is "the place" to find delicious local oysters. Apalachicola Bay and East Bay oysters are harvested and driven to us fresh each day. Try them raw, baked, or steamed. The freshness and taste of these savory mollusks can't be beat.Atlas prepares locally caught fish and shellfish-such as red snapper, grouper, mahi-mahi, blue crab, and Gulf shrimp-in a variety of ways. The menu also includes cold-smoked steaks, chicken, and pasta entrées as well as daily specials, sushi, and a children's menu. In addition, many Fish House favorites are served at Atlas. The dessert list includes our famous key lime pie. Don't miss Tuesdays for half-price sushi and $2.00 domestic draft beers starting at 5 p.m. and going until 10 p.m.

Great atmosphere and view, plus the food and service were great! Started out with the fish chowder and lobster and crab cake appetizer; both were excellent! Main courses included chicken roulade and grits a ya ya. Chicken was a little on the dry side but came with a yummy risotto with carmelized leeks, and the grits a ya ya came... More

Really a nice place. Mixed drinks are a tad pricey but the meals are extremely good. We ate outside and the views and the ambiance was excellent. The cheese grits that accompanied my salmon were very flavorful and the fish was great. We shared the crab cake appetizer which was excellent. We were very pleased with our server and the... More

Long wait, slow service, mediocre meal. Waiter dropped a tray beside us, food splashed on my pant leg. Then, he cleaned it up with his bare hands and continued serving. After waiting almost an hour to be served, we got up to leave as did another table beside us. We don't plan on going back.

The food truly is excellent, especially for Pensacola. The service is good, the views outside are fun.It is very relaxed without being low-brow.

We ordered their speciality - the famous shrimp and grits ya ya. It comes with a generous amount of shrimp and flavorful polenta (grits). The grits were a bit too buttery and felt a bit rich but overall it was a wonderful dish with gorgeous views. The service is outstanding and the clientele is upscale and sophisticated.

Tried this restaurant based on recommendations. I sat outside where I had a great view of the marina, bay and the bridge. My server was friendly and attentive. I had the seafood gumbo and grilled grouper with smoked gouda grits and greens. The portion of gumbo was generous for a cup and was the best gumbo I have had in... More

My first visit and I loved this place. A friendly waitstaff that was on the ball great seafood selection, but what I thought was real cool were the southern sides, turnip greens, black eyed peas, cheese grits and more. The fish house will be on my return list.

My daughter and I really liked the grits a ya ya. My husband had fried oysters. There were other items on the menu I'd Ike to try sometime. Beautiful aquarium that the kids and I loved to look at while waiting for a table.

This is a nice place and the view is great. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly. I had a Caesar salad and shrimp and grits. Both were good but not the best. The key lime pie was the best part of the meal. I was expecting a little more from this place considering the reviews, but it was not bad at... More

Been here a few times sice moving to Pensacola. Will go here again. Great location if you want to sit outside with a view of the water. Food generally decent, but average. Good service. Crowded on popular nights.
