Description: The Fish House is local,dockside dining overlooking beautiful Pensacola Bay and Seville Harbor. Just steps away from Historic Seville Square, our award-winning restaurant features an inventive menu of fresh, daily seafood selections, house-smoked steaks, sushi, a handpicked wine list with over 300 wines, and our world-famous Grits a Ya Ya: A delectable Southern specialty of our smoked Gouda cheese grits smothered with a sauce of fresh cream, sauteed Gulf shrimp, spinach, portobello mushrooms, applewood-smoked bacon, garlic, and shallots. Full bar. Late night menu. Brunch on Sundays. The Fish House Deck is comprised of 3,500 square feet of the coolest deck in town on the water! With its own bandstand, fire pit, and maritime-inspired bar with plenty of seating, the Fish House Deck Bar has quickly become the evening gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. Happy hour runs from 4 p.m. till 6 p.m., 7 days a week with live music nightly and Ladies' Night with $2 drinks every Wednesday.The Atlas Oyster House, located on beautiful Pensacola Bay only steps away from its sister restaurant, The Fish House, offers a waterfront dining experience that's a bit more casual than you'll find next door. Atlas is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. It is "the place" to find delicious local oysters. Apalachicola Bay and East Bay oysters are harvested and driven to us fresh each day. Try them raw, baked, or steamed. The freshness and taste of these savory mollusks can't be beat.Atlas prepares locally caught fish and shellfish-such as red snapper, grouper, mahi-mahi, blue crab, and Gulf shrimp-in a variety of ways. The menu also includes cold-smoked steaks, chicken, and pasta entrées as well as daily specials, sushi, and a children's menu. In addition, many Fish House favorites are served at Atlas. The dessert list includes our famous key lime pie. Don't miss Tuesdays for half-price sushi and $2.00 domestic draft beers starting at 5 p.m. and going until 10 p.m.

“Right on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We wanted to have seafood while we were in Florida, so we drove over to the Fish House for lunch. I was surprised that there weren't more Gulf seafood choices. The fish of the day was tilapia...very disappointed in that choice. But, I had their shrimp grits that they are known for, and it was good...a little too salty, but good.

“Great Food & Great Service: A Winning Combination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We tried the Fish House for the first time last night. Each of our three meals were cooked perfectly, the service was great and the bar/restaurant provides a great atmosphere. We had a very enjoyable meal and evening. THANKS!

“Food was good. Service was kinda all over the place.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

They were out of raw oysters. Even at the Atlas Oyster bar connected to Fish House. Our food was pretty good but not great. The drinks from the bar had a strange unidetifiable artificial taste. We ordered four different drinks and they all had a funky taste except the mojito.

Our server was excellent but unfortunately another server brought our appetizers out and he literally handed the plates to me and told me "to pass them around"! Very very tacky! Then the same guy brought the wrong food order to our table and began to plunk things we did not order down in front of us! When I told him this was not the food we ordered he simply stared at me like I was crazy and, without a word, walked away. Our server came and took away the food and brought our correct order out.

After we paid our bill, I told the manager and he was apologetic.

I wouldn't return. It's nothing special.

“Great seafood and waterfront location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Even though I travel alone, I enjoy a nice meal. Fish House had a wait time so I sat and ate at the bar. Quick service, friendly staff and guests. Fish of the day: Grouper, so I had it blackened and served with grilled veggies/squashes and house mashed potatoes. Awesome dinner! Great atmosphere!
