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.

Another stop during my trip, based on "Emeril's Florida", and the food did not disappoint. We had the New Orleans Style BBQ Shrimp appetizer. Lovely fresh Gulf shrimp in a wonderful sweet and spicy sauce, accompanied by french bread slices. We asked for more bread just so that we could eat all of the sauce - it was that good!!... More

There were NO sides included. The sauce was delicious and the grits were creamy. The thing that really disappointed me was the amount of shrimp, only eight, small at... More

When we went there with the family, we got there about 5PM and got an excellent view from inside the restaurant. There is outside seating if you like, and I would imagine it is quite nice at night when it gets a little cooler. It was hot that day and we stayed indoors. The food is good. I got a... More

Outstanding food, outstanding views, and outstanding atmosphere! If you come to Pensacola, or you are already here, this is the restaurant to go to for seafood. The wife and I loved it. We easily give it 5 stars!

We both got fish specials; my husband the mahi-mahi and I the grouper. Fish was so fresh; had been caught earlier that day. Would definitely return.

Stopped for lunch on our way to the Destin area. Food was absolutely fantastic. Their 'special' is Grits a Ya Ya and it is delicious!! Their gumbo was great, grilled chicken Gouda sandwich was wonderful. They have their own hot sauce which is really good. The specialty drink is Fish House Punch and you feel tropical from the first sip... More

I went here with my high school girlfriends -- we were going to hear the band and then eat. Well, the band area outside was very busy with great atmosphere, but it was raining and people had no where to sit...So, we then put our name in at the restaurant. After an hour and 20 min wait, we finally got... More

We enjoyed so much the dining experience at the Fish House. Used the Trip Advisor as recommended dining and it turned out super. Our waiter, Zac was very efficient, friendly and personable . The food, shrimp, fish, and veggies arrived hot, fresh, and couldn't have been better. Put it on your list of places to eat!
