“Great Grouper”
Reviewed September 15, 2006

The long wait for a table is testimony to the excellent food and service Dale Rooks and his Mother dish out for Pensacola food lovers. The wait is well worth it, and the atmosphere is more than relaxed. You will probably see a dozen people you know sitting around the restaurant enjoying the same thing you are. We have been patrons for many, many years, and enjoy the ride in our boat to their dock to have a delicious meal, and say 'Howdy' to our friends. A special treat at lunchtime is speaking with Mr. Cagle at the cash register. He's as much a landmark of the place as the grouper! ~Ed & Esther Turner

“Fun setting, good food”
Reviewed December 29, 2005

This is a neat, casual little spot with a pretty view, good service, great prices and food that's about average. We've visited this spot several times, and have always enjoyed ourselves. It can be noisy because it's usually very busy, and it has the ambiance of a lunch counter. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I'm not an oyster lover so can't speak to how good they are, but everything else I've had there has been just OK. I do suggest ordering the vegetables as one of your side dishes--they are cooked perfectly!

“Family Tradition”
Reviewed August 2, 2005

My family has been going to the Oyster Barn for as long as I can remember. This restaurant is on the water, and family owned. The restaurant has no frills, but serves great seafood at a price that can not be beat. If you want to experience a restaurant that the locals love and trust, go here for lunch or dinner - it's great!
