Description: The Wine Bar is a Bistro located on the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk. It is considered an oasis to locals and vacationers alike. The Wine Bar is home to a sharp and polite staff as well as an ever expanding menu. We use all fresh produce and proteins along with some local ingredients. It is also home to one of the largest wine by the glass lists in the area as well as a huge selection of over 100 different wines in the retail area that we would be happy to open for you to enjoy here or help you carry to your car to enjoy later.

“Excellent Pizza and Drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Promised Claire and Jason (Chef) that I would write this review- Being born in Pensacola its always nice to go back with the family to the white sands and crystal blue water and perfect sun! So searching for dining options is tuff... This place was a nice hidden get away, cool AC, moderate lighting and a very nice small staff. The menu is very generous and the wine options are endless. We had the Black and Bleu, Margherita and Mozeralla (No Sauce) Flatbread. They were wonderful! The wife and daughter loved their Marg/Moz and I had the B/B a flatbread with filet mignon and very nice cheese. Also, found out that Claire was from our hometown and went to school where are daughter will be going, so she gave insight on the schools and location. We will be back on our next Beach trip as you can't go wrong to have a little break from the Chowder House, Pegleg Petes and other fried seafood classics : ) thanks again y'all!

“Amazing wine, amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Bartender/waitress single-handedly took care of everyone in the restaurant. She was very bust, but made sure to not rush and offered very helpful suggestions. Food was AMAZING, and wine was great pairing.

“Favorite Restaurant on the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

My wife and I chose this as our "dress-up dinner date" on this vacation. We had such a good experience, my wife talked about it the whole drive home.
The atmosphere was very nice and trendy, different from most other places on the boardwalk. The service was great and our server, Casey, was super friendly and helpful.
We both loved our wine choices - there are many to chose from. We really enjoyed the cheese appetizer. Because we don't often try unique cheeses, we basically just took a shot in the dark at our "pick 3" option. Our cheese and everything else that came with it was absolutely wonderful.
Our entrees were chef quality meals. I ordered the shrimp scampi and my wife ordered some kind of fancy take on a BLT that looked fabulous.
On this trip, we did not make a habit of visiting restaurants from previous vacations to the beach, but the Wine Bar will be the exception for all future visits; we cannot imagine returning to the beach and not going back to the Wine Bar.

“Hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We found this gem online and we are so glad we went. The staff was helpful in choosing both wine and food, and all four of our meals and drinks were five star quality. The waitress and owner were attentive and upbeat, and the cheese plate they assembled was heavenly. This is a romantic yet welcoming family place. We plan to go back in two nights for Friday night wine tasting.

“Fine Dining in Pensacola Beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Excellent food! Excellent Service! The restaurant is hidden on the Boardwalk with chain restaurants and bars. Great fresh dishes, locally sourced produce and fresh ingredients. Wait staff is friendly and professional. The maitre d', Jim, was knowledgeable of their extensive wine list and suggested an excellent wine pairing for our dinner. He also suggested a cheese appetizer for our wine. Food is top notch...one of our favorites in the whole region. Pensacola Beach is so lucky to have such a sophisticated venue!
