Not a lot of frills, just good fish cooked the right way.

This is my kind of place. It is far from fancy and you would probably not want to take a first date who you are trying to impress there. What they do offer is very fresh seafood which is cooked the right way, pleasant service, and it is on the water.

Service was very slow even though the restaurant was nearly empty. My salad had pieces of old slimy lettuce in it. My grilled tuna was just OK. It had Worcester sauce on it. Not what I expected at all for what was called sushi grade tuna. I will not go back.

Poppy Johnny's daughter Morgan has a new baby. Our first time to meet for a bite to eat was at our local Marina Oyster Barn. Piper was the center of attention, while our favorite raw oysters, shrimp & grits, mullet, and shrimp dinners were served. Want local seafood? Try it!

We started out with a dozen oysters on the half shell....large and plump and tasty. My husband had the mullet dinner.......the fish, the... More

Whenever out of town visitors or colleagues come to Pensacola this is my restaurant of choice. Great location, good local vibe, excellent slaw and the best mullet anywhere.

Prices are more reasonable than other seafood restaurants in Pensacola. The food is also better than most. The location is right on a bayou and they actually have oysters on the half shell. They even bring each guest a couple of hushpuppies to nosh on while waiting for your food! Recommend!

Good seafood; fast, friendly service; fair value, nice view of the water. This isn't fine dining, but it is a solid choice for a better than average seafood experience.

Like many of the good restaurants around here, not very frilly on the outside. Quaint on the inside. Great views. Not fancy but good food. We liked the sushi quality tuna. The kids' meals were all inclusive.

Marina Oyster Barn has a nice setting on a dock over the water. That’s the best thing about the place. Since it has “oyster” in the name, I figured that it should serve some pretty good ones. So I got the oyster po’ boy. It was a large, long bun with six of the most pathetic, tiny fried oysters I... More
