We had a late dinner at Hemingway's on a Tuesday night and the food and atmosphere were excellent. Not as good as The Grand Marlin, but still a good choice.

The Pensacola Beach boardwalk is a busy place on weekends. We were thrilled to get into Hemingway's on a Saturday night without waiting. Parking is a challenge because of the restaurant's location. The staff is very courteous and our waitress was charming. We had a table overlooking the beach and caught the sunset...SPECTACULAR! My mojito was spot on and our... More

Have visited this location several times. The sautéed crab claws are wonderful. They are not on the menus sometimes, so you have to ask for them. The salad with salmon is very good. The service on all 3 occasions has been mediocre.

Great menu, lots of variety for all tastes. Nice waitstaff. Some confusion on meals and tickets so be clear what you want and check the bill

We had dinner here on a visit to the beach with friends. Beautiful waterfront setting with delicious food and excellent service. Be sure to get the key lime pie. Best I have ever had in a restaurant.

My sister and I enjoyed a dolphin cruise that departed behind Hemingway's. For lunch we had calamari, fish tacos and Bloody Mary's. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service was great. Seating is available outside. Gorgeous view

This is one of the nicer restaurants on the beach, and while our meals were good, I was expecting something better for these price points and ambience. My husband had a mojito, and it was watered down. My margarita was good. And it's definitely not a kid-friendly restaurant, although there is a little kids' menu. One thing, though: the restaurant...

It was difficult to make a selection from the extensive menu, but I chose Papa's fish tacos. They were wonderful! They came with yellow rice and black beans. I had more than enough to eat. My husband also had a blackened fish (can't remember what it was) sandwich and said it was the best fish sandwich he'd ever eaten. I... More

Great atmosphere and nice to have a place on the water that is 'upscale'. Ordered the Surf & Turf special, the Grilled Grouper Oscar and the Red Snapper. All were very good. The steak was to be m-rare, But was well done, but was so tender we did not send it back. Ceasar salad was also a pleasant surprise.
