Busy as usual, convenient to the hotel

Reliably good food, husband had a hamburger, I did oysters and fish. They have a good bartender and service is good. I had eaten there on previous trips and this time it was a holiday weekend and everywhere was full full full

I was visiting Pensacola Beach off season, so there were no crowds. Blindly, I chose to stop at Hemingway's for lunch, and I was not disappointed. I treated myself to a Bloody Mary, which I highly recommend, and ordered a $10 lunch special: chicken Marsala, served over mashed potatoes. What a delight! The chicken was moist and tender and the...

Great restaurant located on the main road at Pensacola Beach, not far from the beach front hotels. Great seafood plus good steaks and full bar service. Service is good, food even better, crowded on week ends.

The food here is really good. I got the shrimp over yellow rice and black beans. Yum. We split the jerk wings which were very good. My wife had the crab cake. She prefers broiled, but this came fried. Nevertheless, it was pretty good. The conch soup was also very good.

My husband and I love Hemingways - we go in the off season and usually during an afternoon "special" - 10 different entrees for a special price. We had an angel hair pasta with a light cream sauce and large shrimp perfectly seasoned and sauteed. It was just divine - the price was right and the food and drink perfect.... More

My husband and I came here on the first night of our trip to Pensacola beach. It is an attractive restaurant in a corporate sort of way, with a beautiful view of the water. The food was good; we ordered the Hurricane shrimp, the Bimini burger and I had the grilled grouper which was very good, as I am a... More

Some people like Flounders, and quite honestly, so do I. I love Flounders. But, to compare Hemingways' to Flounders is like comparing apples and trucks. Hemmingways offers a magnificent view of the bay, along with a charming bar for cocktails. It is subdued, yet casual. It is elegant, but not stuffy. You may want to dress up a little better... More

This has the trappings of a fine beach restaurant. Nice view even at night. The food is very good but the service is lacking. Portions are small. everybody cleaned their plate even after appetizers and dessert.

Our families favorite restaurant on Pensacola Beach. Food is always fantastic service is usually good and the prices are excellent. We will always continue to come back. My sons always get the Cuban sandwich. Lots of food at reasonable prices. The lobster bisque is fantastic and the salmon salad is wonderful. We love the view of the Sound and enjoy... More
