We ate outside at this restaurant, the view was fantastic and the food good. I recommend the mojitos which were excellent!

I went to this place after looking at all the reviews on trip advisor. The location is beautiful and the outdoor deck is a very nice place to enjoy a meal. Although the food was good, it certainly was nothing special or spectacular. Service was a bit slow too

We had a rather long wait to be seated considering how slow they were. Once seated, our server was extremely slow. The food was discounted due to poor service, which was appreciated. Many others left due to poor service. Once we did receive meal, it was very good. Excellent Lobster Bisque. We have been informed by others this is not the norm. We will try again due to quality of food and recommendations, but hope for better service next time.

We were recommended to try Hemingway's and were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and efficient and great fun. Quality of the food was excellent, particularly the ribs which were so tender and really tasty - we all agreed they were the best we had ever tasted. The atmosphere was really pleasant and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Of the three restaurants we visited this time in Pensacola (Chowders and Peg Leg Pete's being the other two - both very good), this was our favourite and we would definitely return.

When you are surrounded with restaurants like "Crabs" and "Flounder" you better be able to produce some good seafood. So Hemingways provides both food and atmosphere. On the beach front you can sit outside looking at the waves or inside and be entertained by live music. We used the elevator to get to the main floor--lots of steps out front. The staff was friendly. Concentrated on appetizers while my younger nephew and his kids visited the table: Down went the chicken quesiddias with large chucks of chicken almost making it like a plater of chicken tacos. The coconut shrimp disappeared in an instant for good reason. Finally a giant serving of onion straws were presented. After all that food I choose a BBQ pork sandwich and my date choose the salmon salad. We felt bad that our focus upon the appetizers had filled us up beyond the need for the full and wonderful selection of Cuban and Seafood/Steak combinations for entrees. I also had a great lobster Bisque. I appreciated that our server was unfazed when my nephews 4 year old knocked over a glass of water on the table.
