When you want a wonderful, laid back, completely unpretentious place for authentic seafood, a variety of kinds of oysters, and great hush puppies, this is the place to go! On a bayou in a local neighborhood backroad, you might need your GPS to find it. We had oysters on the half shell, fried mullet, shrimp salad, and even chicken and... More

I used to live in Pensacola and whenever I visit I always make sure to have a meal here. While not very big and located off the beaten path on Bayou Texar, it is mostly frequented by locals who know how good and fresh everything is. Their oysters on the half shell are plump, flavorful and succulent. The shrimp, grouper,... More

My husband and I are new to Pensacola, so we are trying out different restaurants as we get to know the area. I read the reviews on tripadvisor and we decided to check this place out. I was so disappointed, if it wasn't for the fact that the waitress was nice, I would have given it one circle. It was... More

Don't let the outside fool you. This place has outstanding seafood and most tables have a water view. We went here for lunch and I had the best shrimp that I had on the whole trip. Also the grilled grouper was good too. The key lime and banana pudding were homemade and really yummy! We will come here again on... More

Just visited one of our favorite Pensacola restaurants....the Marina Oyster Barn. Nothing much changes here....which is a good thing. If you have ever been there, you know that this is a very casual place. So many of the folks know each other, which means there are a lot of repeaters. This is a local hangout for those who live in... More

Was happy with service and food wasn't great. The Broccoli was good though. We walk in and we are greeted by a cat then they put us in the back im not sure why. The service was slow, seafood doesnt take long cook but we waited 25 for not so great food.

My husband and I were planning to drive out to Perdido Key to go to a restaurant that has been highly rated on trip advisor. However, we had just driven several hours that day and did not feel like adding an extra hour to our day. We happened to be in the visitors center and asked an employee to recommend... More

We were on our way to Joey Patti's which we found on Roadfood but they close at 4:30 and a Google search turned up the Marina. Glad it did! Our kind of place: not a franchise, off the beaten path, on the water, funky, friendly and good food! Kicked-off with a dozen "topless oysters" which we all agreed were some... More
