One of the best restaurants we have been to! I loved having the option to eat either in the restaurant or in the heated tent next to the water. The food was top notch! I enjoyed an oyster appetizer and the shrimp and grits. I wish I lived closer because I would definitely go back!

Great seafood on the water in downtown Pensacola. The cuisine is very creative. I had the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp atop mashed potatoes & fried green tomatoes. It is the sister restaurant to the Fish House next door. The food was generous and carefully prepared. The menu had a number of interesting items as well as standard Gulf seafood fare.

Decided to try something new in Pensacola, and man was this a good choice! As a matter of fact, I think they may have jumped to the top of my favorite restaurant list! I don't think you could go wrong with anything on the menu. The wife and I did the Rim Tuna and to our delightful surprise a sushi... More

We were only in town for a quick trip and friends recommended the Atlas for dinner. We are so glad they did! We had a great time and the food was outstanding! The fish was very fresh and tasted great! I recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Pensacola.

Atlas is a bit louder, more casual, a little less nice and maybe a bit darker? Maybe it was just in the corner we were seated at. We prefer Fish House, although it is basically the same menu. Shrimp étouffée was good, a bit on the salty side but ok. Grilled oysters were quite gritty. And my mahi was overcooked.

I've been coming here for years and I've never had a bad meal. In good weather you can sit outside and there's a nice view of boats and the water. It's in the old downtown section of Pensacola and great to have lunch or an early dinner after sight-seeing. I usually take all my out of town guests here and... More
