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.

“Raw Oysters for brunch? Yes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Went there recently with a friend. I wanted to sit on the deck but it was already full. We had arrived at 11:30 on a Sunday. We instead opted for the bar and it was great. The bartender was friendly and suggested menu items that were great. She also had a wonderful sense of humor. We ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes and each had a dozen raw oysters. The oysters were nice and salty and perfectly sized!! Soooo gooooood :) The atmosphere was nice and didnt really feel crowded even though there was a line waiting by the time we left around 1:00. I would definitely go there again for brunch.

“pizza and a drink”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Okay, we were already disappointed from a lousy lunch at Joe Patti's so we thought we'd just have a small pizza and a drink for dinner. We had the house specialty drink, some kind of fruity thing and I would swear there wasn't any liquor in it, but benefit of the doubt. Then this flavorless pizza on a frozen flatbread base came out. How can shrimp, bacon, tomatoes and cheese have no flavor? Here they can.

“VERY OVER PRICED AND TOURISTY”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Gave this place a try, it is very expensive and loaded with tourists who don't know any better. There are so many other similar places in Pensacola to go and have better food and way less expensive.

“Burnt Food and bad atitude!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The fries were burnt and very greasy. They would not replace them at all. Their atitude was one of tough luck.

“The Fish House Has GREAT Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Fish House is our favorite upscale seafood restaurants in Pensacola. This place is definitely white table cloth.

From the soup to specialty fish you can't beat it. We had both the a la carte and one of the nightly specials. I had gumbo which was wonderful bringing back memories of my youth so many years ago. My brother had a fish and cheese grits combination which he raved about. This was our second visit but our first review. We will definitely go again!
