Fantastic food, gret prices, friendly service!

We finally got to the Original Pointe when we spent a week with friends at Navarre Beach. I had a great grilled Amberjack filet and the appetizer - complimentary tuna spread - was fantastic. This is admittedly an old time, good old boy place, so don't expect glistening accoutrements. If you like... read more

This is admittedly an old time, good old boy place, so don't expect glistening accoutrements. If you like good food, however, come on down!

Being going to the Original Point for years. If you are looking for a fresh modern décor....don't go here. This is an old restaurant with a bar and great bluegrass music on the weekends. Food is good and the folks the run the restaurant bend over backwards to ensure you have a great time. We got the fried seafood platter... More

We've been going to The Point for 30+ years, usually on Fri. or Sat. night. The food is always very good, and prices are reasonable. On the regular menu, our favorite is lemon grilled tilapia. There are always great specials listed on a whiteboard each day as well. And, the bluegrass band, Bubba and Them, are amazing! We're from Wisconsin,... More

We sat at the bar, Mo gave us gr8 service and we enjoyed the Bluegrass music. Food was ho-hum. Soft shell crab lacked seasoning in the batter and tasted very fishy- have had better. Shrimp salad was ok, nothing to write home about. This place has been around a long time, have had better food over the years

Went here several times during our staya and will be back. Wonderful food. Always very fresh and you can't beat the value. Get the scallops grilled with lemon butter and definitely the gouda cheese grits!

We had large order bay scallops on special. Cooked well, generous portion, great price. Gouda grits always great. Slaw and hush puppies good. Server Kimmie was friendly, efficient and made our dinner great.

The restaurant didn't look like much, outside or in, but the reviews were pretty good and I've learned not to judge by looks in this region. We ordered a bottle of wine with fried alligator as a split appetizer. The fried gator tasted good but was incredibly greasy. I soaked 3 napkins blotting it off. We each ordered the Point... More

The best and freshest fish in Pensacola. I enjoyed my dinner. My husband had the seafood platter. He really though it was the best.

This place has been here forever, and unfortunately it shows. But I can say that if you are a regular, you will be treated well. The food is pretty good, but unimaginative. Seafood is the go to choice. They usually have the same in-house band in attendance, at the least the last few times we visited.

We love going to The Point on the weekends when Bubba and Them are playing bluegrass. It's a staple for our family! Its a locals joint with the nicest folks and fresh fish too. My husband usually has some sort of mullet but this time he ordered the fresh catch which was grouper and had it with the Cajun sauce... More
