We enjoyed appetizers for dinner....highly recommend the blackened shrimp and fried green tomatoes. Spinach and artichoke dip was also fine. Would not recommend the chicken tenders. Also enjoyed breakfast, but ordered the conservative eggs/toast/bacon meal. View was fantastic. Service was friendly but very slow, particularly during breakfast. Not sure why since it wasn't crowded. Thankfully the view captured our attention. Great place to eat if staying in the hotel. Found the prices very reasonable compared to the tourist traps nearby. Plus, park for free in the underground garage....and you can either walk up to the front or take the elevator to the lobby level. Simple. Also enjoyed a yummy pina colada! I would go back if in the area!! (I believe they have indoor and outdoor seating, but I enjoyed taking advantage of the A/C since it was so muggy outside. View was still very nice!)

We ate here our first night in town. Although we were not staying at Margaritaville hotel, this was close to our townhouse. It was pretty good. Better than regular hotel food but not excellent. We stuck to chicken, burgers and salad. Didn't try their seafood. We sat out on the back lanai, and the view was excellent. Our server was very good, too. We would probably go back, when in Pensacola Beach again, if staying on Ft. Pickens side of island.

A friend and I stopped in for a drink and smoked tuna dip. Not only was the food good but the service was excellent.
Ivey from Baton Rouge was our bartender and she made sure we never ran dry. Dan the manager made sure he spoke to every customer in the place.
Even the handymen were nice and talkative. I will be going back and bring more friends to Margaritville bar.

The food was pretty decent. I had a spicy meat omelet. The restaurant was fairly full, so I assume that is why the service was abnormally slow. The hotel that Frank & Lola's is in is beautiful, and the gift shop is lovely. The atmosphere is spot on, but the service could use some fine tuning. Only eat here if you are on island time and have plenty of time to waste.
