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.

This is a great place to sit outside by the water and enjoy a great meal. Sometimes they have live music too. The Atlas is smaller and more causal. They have the same menus though. It's usually a longer wait to get into the Fish House though and they keep it chilly inside. They have a variety of seafood dishes... More

Great place to enjoy the view and visit. Good food, good wine, good waitstaff. The breeze is nice when you get it. Can be very hot outside, but the rest makes it worth it.

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

Went there with wife and three friends for dinner, my birthday. Everyone really enjoyed the dinner. I ordered the famous Shrimp and Grits Ya Ya. It was a good tasting meal. 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!
