Restaurants in Pensacola, FL

The eating opportunities in Florida’s westernmost city run the gamut, from burgers and barbecue to four-star New American cuisine. Among its many claims to fame, Pensacola happens to be where the bacon cheeseburger first was created, at Jerry’s Drive-In. But it’s seafood that takes top billing hereabouts: Cajun/Creole fare at Cosse’s On the Beach; oysters and shrimp at Marina Oyster Barn; crabcake Benedict at Native Cafe in Gulf Breeze, oysters galore at Peg Leg Pete’s, and crawfish at Cub’s Crawfish. For every kind of seafood imaginable, the place to go is Captain Joey Patti’s. Adjoining an epic seafood market, Joey Patti’s feels like a great big diner: crowded, chatty, and full of life – informal in the extreme, a high-spirited place that’s fun for the family and easy on the wallet. The menu is huge, featuring fried fish of every kind, hearty gumbo, grilled fish, platters, plates, and baskets. Pensacola being northwest Florida, which is, in fact, the deepest South, you know that every plate of crisp-fried fish is going to come with hushpuppies.
