Food is out of this world. It's a local hangout too so you know it has to be great! Fun atmosphere with a play area downstairs. Get there early. There's usually a wait. That's the only downside. If you aren't starving it's worth the wait.

The restaurant seems old and not very clean. I had grouper sandwich. Son had oysters and fried platter. All food was decent. My mango margarita came in a styrofoam cup and the waiter spilled it all down the side of the cup. He apologized and said he would be back with napkins to clean it up. Had to flag him... More

We first discovered this restaurant on PBeach a couple of years ago and flipped over how good the baked oysters were. We got turned on to grilled oysters at New Orleans (NOLA) and have been looking for something to be as good. This was the place. In fact, due to my schedule, my wife ended up eating there three times... More

We decided to hit Peg Leg Pete's for lunch and decided to get Imperial oysters, Grouper Nuggets, crab stuffed shrimp and red beans and rice to share. It was really good! We sat by the guy shucking the oysters and they were working really hard! We forgot to take a picture before but sometimes the after picture tells a story... More

The family and I went to the beach for the first time. We stayed at Spring Hill suites. I went and asked the bar tender where was a good place to eat? She said peg leg petes. So we went down there and it was a great atmosphere and the food was delicious. I had never really ate seafood and... More

We rolled in for lunch with a large family group. There was a little wait, but not unusual for a tourist town. The food was excellent, great oysters, grouper, shrimp, burgers. Of exceptional note was the restaurant's commitment to service and caring for patrons with gluten allergy. One of the managers will come to the table to discuss your needs... More

We ate here for lunch and had the shrimp basket and grouper basket, a grilled grouper sandwich and a huge plate of nachos. Some of the best shrimp I've had and my husband said the same about the grouper fingers - it was all good! We went in late afternoon and there was an hour wait. It only took about... More

We got the dinner for 2 and it was awesome. I also got their Bushwacker and they made it perfect. The service was quick and the waiter was very helpful when I couldn't decide what I wanted.

I didn't expect much from what looked like a tourist trap among vacation lodging but it was really good. Typical casual beach decor with an awesome collection of license plates from around North America. Long wait so we ended up eating at the bar. Servers were excellent. Lots of seafood options, COLD draft beer, good specialty drinks like the Bushwacker.

We ate here on our trip to Pensacola. We enjoyed it very much. Food was good, greasy but good. What fried food isn't greasy? Neat environment. All the locals and fishermen highly recommended it. Definitely would eat there again.... fried grouper is wonderful.

Thank goingplacesgirl
