Decent variety of food to choose from if you want to avoid the more expensive local restaurants. The ice cream is also good. The burger tasted good enough, but it would have been nice to have a burger cooked medium or even medium-well instead of well done. Even after a second attempt they were unable to get any hint of...

Reuben sandwich was OK, nothing special, but service was very attentive. Ice cream was a good treat for dessert.

As a beach local, I don't know why there isn't more talk about Boardwalk Cafe. I rarely frequent Quiet water Boardwalk but stumbled upon this walking and decided to go in. Absolutely delicious! The feta dip was excellent and the freshly carved lamb gyros top notch! We will definitely frequent, prices reasonable also. Recommended.

Fantastic lobster rolls, amazing fries. Don't overlook this small place because it's not as big or fancy as other John's Pass eateries. Slower bc small, but absolutely worth the wait. Good selection of tasty food.

Not sure where these rave reviews are coming from. The portion sizes were insulting. We ordered two baskets of fried fish and one basket of chicken fingers, but they were as small as appetizers, even smaller than appetizers at many other restaurants. For example, I had the fried Mahi Mahi. I received four sticks that were each roughly three inches... More

It is a hot day and we wanted some ice cream. We got out and started walking and stopped by the beach strip were there are a few shops along with a few other restaurants. We stopped in the Broadway Cafe because they had a sign that said ice cream. My husband got a banana split in a cup and... More

After a long day traveling to Pensacola Beach, my family and I wanted a simple casual dinner. When the restaurant we chose was only serving pizza, we went to the Boardwalk Cafe. Everyone was super nice and the menu had quite a few selections. I had the grouper bites basket (came with fries) and so did my father, my husband... More

The Boardwalk Cafe was surprisingly good! I got the gyro and it was fantastic. My son got a burger and it looked really good as well. It's a place we will visit again on our next trip to Pensacola Beach.

We stopped in on a quiet evening. The burgers and gyro were excellent. Would definitely go back next time we are in the area.
