Tasty food, friendly staff. Not fancy but good for families. I had gumbo and fried oysters that were very good.

A nice diner for lunch. Only open 10:30-4:30. Food was good, service from our waitress was just ok. Will probably eat there again.

OLD PENSACOLA ALL THE WAY! The seafood experience you are looking for that has the local feel. Many ask,"Where do the locals eat seafood for lunch?" If you pull into the parking lot at Capt Joey Pattis, you have found it. I normally get a cup of gumbo and the popcorn shrimp basket. You can get real Grouper for a... More

If you don't want fried foods, I wouldn't advise going here. However, the fried food we did get was very delicious and well priced!

A must if you're in the area. Check the hours before you go. On days they are open they close early afternoon. Been there 5 or 6 times and the food has been great every time. Always busy. Be prepared to wait a few minutes as the locals flood this place but its worth it!

We ate at Joe Patti’s Restaurant (NOT to be confused with the Seafood Market which is AWSOME!!) Unless all you want is fried food with basic sides i.e. slaw, beans, etc.) Do not waste your time.

After buying fresh seafood from their market I had high expectations of this local hole in the wall. I was wrong. Everything is fried with absolutely no taste. Even the grits were bland. The only saving grace was our waiter who was fabulous and entertaining too. This place could be so much more with the bounty of fresh seafood they... More

This is a hole on the wall where locals eat. No water views, but delicious food. We went the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. We waited for 20 minutes. They only have a few tables for parties of 6 or more. I ordered the fried oysters and they were great, although a little overbreaded. The cheese grits were amazing. Be ready to... More

We take fresh gulf Coast seafood,fry it to perfection and serve it to you with a smile. We are hoping to have a grill installed soon but we do have a lot of non-fiction menu items available. We do not use any heat lamps here at the restaurant so everything is served fresh.
