“Love this place! Grits A Ya Ya...mmmmm good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Love this place. I haven't had the first mediocre meal much less bad. The shrimp and grits are delicious. I have also had a crab claw appetizer to die for and a really great steak. Food good, service good, atmosphere good. Don't miss!

“Great Place Minus the Flys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

My husband and I were visiting Pensacola for the first time on June 16, 2013. We wanted to eat where the "local" to insure we would get great Gulf seafood and not the marketed commercial foods a the tourist spots, so a local recommended The Fish House, however once we arrived and looked at both menus we decided to eat at Atlas. It was pretty weird the their located in the one huge building, same owners but different names and different menus...it should all be one...Anyway, the place wasnt packed evwnthough it was Fathers Day, we sat outside to soak in the atmosphere which was overlooking the gulf. Out waitress, Angela was amazing, friendly and she took photos of my husband and I. We ordered a combination seafood platter which you can order 3 items (all over 1lb ea) so we ordered 2 crab legs 3lbs total and steamed shrimp 1.5lbs. Pecan crusted green tomatoes (Loved it!!) Mashed potatoes and Cheese Grits (I forgot the name but it was soooo good)! All the food and service was great! The only problem we had were the FLYS!! They didnt come out till our food was served. The waitress appoligized and told us they usually put peppermint oil under the deck which keeps them from coming out, but they ran out. It was tough to enjoy the food to the fullest it your constanly wack away flys. Outside of the flys, the food was great and we plan to return!! Ill make sure I bring my peppermint oil just in case! :-)

“You must have a meal here while visiting Pensacola”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We had a fabulous table on the deck overlooking the water. Our server was great and her recommendations were spot on. I had a White Sangria that was delicious. There were three of us in our dinner party. We ate the Fish Tacos, Grits a-Ya-Ya and Scallops Ravioli. All of our meals were delicious. We had no wait on a Wednesday evening for a 7:15 arrival. Our view was perfect as we ate and watched the sunset. Perfect in every way!

“Been twice, satisfied twice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Went the first time in June 2012. One year later we got the same exact thing. It was wonderful both times around. Great selection of beers and the options for food seemed endless. Highly recommend the shrimp and grits. There's a bar scene but we didn't stick around for it. Good stuff!

Good oysters, excellent spinach salad and awesome atmosphere if you sit outside. You can enjoy the local band while you eat after 7 ish. A must try!
