“Gotta Love All LandShark Landings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The drinks, typical bar food, music, dancing and the beach. What a terrific combination! And there are hammocks to rest on between LandShark Landing and the beach. Ahhh...

“Amazing atmosphere, limited food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

If you're looking for a great dining experience, you might consider heading across the way to Margaritaville. However, if you're looking for a great bar, a fun place to hang out, and bar food, this is the place to be. It's a burgers and fries type of menu, so if that's your bag, you're in luck. If you're looking for something healthier, I think the closest is the fish sandwich, which is very good. There's no salad though, so your side options are limited to fries or chips.

The real reason to come here is what's outside. There's a fire pit (for the chilly evenings), there's cornhole, and there are big chairs in the sand everywhere.

It's a wonderful place to hang out and relax.

In the off season, the hours are confusing, so I suggest calling first. During the summer, the hours are more predictable.

“BEST BEACH BAR EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

I say "best beach bar" but according to CNN it's only the #24 beach bar.... IN THE WORLD! Not bad for little ol' Pensacola and for a bar that has only been in business for a couple of years.

This place is a great locals hangout for Sunday drink specials during football season. Too bad they've closed for the winter.

At least they stayed open 1 month longer than last year.... If we show in numbers next fall maybe they'll stay open year round!

anyway..... once they open back up in the spring (March maybe?) be sure to check them out.

My wife love the Havanas Bananas drink..... it's pretty damn awesome... their Bushwacker is also great.....
I go for the $2 draft which is quite the bargain.... long day of drinking for a small tab.

Our last visit of the season was just like all the rest.... great drinks and fun.
Jill, our bartender, always does a fantastic job taking care of us.

Food is good... I recommend the wings!

They only negative to Landshark Landing is the fact they are such a great venue at a perfect location they frequently close during the summer (usually a couple of Saturdays per month) for weddings. Be sure to check their facebook page or call ahead. If you want to have your wedding here please don't..... unless you invite me to the wedding of course. I hate it when Landshark is closed.

This place is perfect if you are wanting to hang out with your lovely wife and is also a great beach bar if you are with your kids. Lots of stuff to keep the kids busy between the bar and the gulf.

Thank you as always for your review! Your feedback is not only helpful to us but to other guests! We tried so hard to stay open but the cold really does impact us! We hope to open in March if it is nice out and yes, please check with us as wedding season will be in full effect! See you soon!

In the off season, it is a bit slower with children back to school. During our peak season we are jamming with families, events and live music! Please check our Facebook page for updates and pictures!

“Beachfron bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Visited on Halloween after work and had the place mostly to ourselves. Drink selection was good, but beer selection a bit shallow.

Best thing is that the bar is right on the beach and reasonably priced.

We hope you enjoyed all of the costumes that night! We saw some great ones! Next time you visit us please ask about our beer as we have a few draft beer specials and we have the lowest price locally crafted beer on the island!!
