We have eaten both lunch and dinner here and have never been disappointed. The wait staff is great and the food is great. Good selection and always fresh. Specializing in local seafood.

Overpriced and steak was over cooked. No manager came to check on us or anything. Very disappointed.

On Mondays and Wednesdays from 3pm to 6pm, the oysters are $4.99 a dozen. We suggest you have the oysters and a beer or wine but definitely eat elsewhere! The food is ordinary at best. If you want a superb meal in downtown Pensacola, try the Global Grill. Check out our review of it on this site!

One of the first restaurants we went to after moving our family to the Pensacola area was located where this restaurant now stands. The place was busy, the food and service were good, and we all enjoyed our meals. Six years later, my husband and I decided to try the place again. (We live over forty miles away, so it... More

We love going to Nick's Boathouse for Brunch and dinner. The brunch menu is great, everything comes out tasting delicious. The mimosas are well priced and bottomless. You can not beat the view of the bay! I recommend sitting outside for that water view.

Beautiful location right on the water with great view. Service from Wendy was fast and efficient. Food was delicious and generous portion served hot. Good deal with coupon for free entree found in local papers.

This is the place to go for a sunset cocktail and fresh shucked oysters. Yum. They have outside seating and plenty of fresh fish on the menu.

The food is great, although the service at times is slow. The view of the Bay is absolutely awesome day or night; HOWEVER the view at sunset is INCREDIBLE!. Inside tables by the bay window is available, but the outside seating is truly a MUST. The water, the birds, and with good timing the flight of the Blue Angels makes... More

It was absolutely horrible. The hostess was rude! Asked where we wanted to sit, so we asked if we could wait for this certain table to be clean off because we wanted to be able to talk more privately. She walked off and never came back. Que... should have left then. Food was bland, like frozen, waitress had an attitude... More
