“fun place to visit in Pensacola!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We recently moved to Pensacola, FL. We visited Joe Patti's for the first time and it was great fun. If you are looking to buy fresh seafood or just get fresh bread or gelato this is the place for you. Everything is there looks delicious! So, if you like to browse around and get great fresh sea food, go here. Definitely a place to visit if you are in town for a few days or weeks.

“Pensacola institution”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

If you like fish this place is MUST visit. I know of few places (like Pike's Market) where when you walk in the place smells fresh, nice and not 'fishy'. The selection, freshness, service is second to none. The prices are on the higher side but one always pays for quality (and you will know why when you cook the fish).
Plus try the made on premises breads, sushi or amazing gelato.
This place is legendary and we make sure we visit every time when we are in Pensacola. Just wish they had better selection of seafood salads, smoked fish and already prepared meals (would be fabulous to have some on the beach). That would make this place a legend in my book.
5 stars nevertheless.

“Delicious Seafood”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We went to Joe Pattis this morning. We got there around 8 in the morning. We didn't have to wait in line long. We bought fresh crab, crawfish, shrimp, jalapeño pimento cheese, fresh baked sourdough bread, and Joe's garlic dipping sauce. Everything was delicious!

“So much fun!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We love going to Joe Patti's. It's definitely an experience. We visit Pensacola every summer and love to get fish to grill or have some steamed shellfish. We also make sure to get some fresh baked bread and visit the wine shop. Kids get free gelato. There's so much going on here and it is usually pretty crowded but service is fast! Make sure you know what you want before you take a number. You'll get called before you know it!

“Sixty dollars worth of overcooked lobster!!!!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stopped in to pick up 3 lobsters and requested to have them steamed. They not only steamed them to death, they steamed them right into "impossible to remove from the shell"! We got them back to my parent's house (10 minutes away), opened the bag and sat down to eat, so I know time was not the issue.

The lobster was dry and mealy and stuck to the shells so bad. I was very, very angry but it just wasn't worth going back there on Labor Day weekend. The place was a mad house!!!

If I ever decide to try it again, I'll open one up in the parking lot to make sure it was steamed correctly.
