Best Of Pensacola Beach

Somebody please update the best food options in Pensacola Beach. With as many tourists that travel to the area, there must be a couple of foodies in the mix. Thanks.

    1. It's very late to be responding, but here goes:

      Peg Leg Pete's is my favorite. It's a typical beach seafood place with a hokey name but good food. My favorite is the scallops, and my husband always gets a variety platter with all sorts of seafoods. It's very family friendly but oh-so-crowded at the typical dinner hour. We try to go early or even mid-afternoon.

      I also like Flounders. It's got loads of seating with a good water view. They often have live bands. We get the fish chowder (they used to sell it for 18 cents, but I think they don't anymore.) I have gotten all different dishes there, but I do remember the salmon is very good. I don't think you can go wrong. Parking can be a big hassle there so again, try to go off peak hours.

        Thanks SusanT. I am heading up for July 4 weekend and also looking for seafood / oyster shacks dives casual etc.

        Peg Leg Pete's sounds good. And also maybe Flounders.

        How about Flora Bama which I saw mentioned elsewhere?

        Any others?

          Hemingway's on P'cola Beach is good.

          As for the FloraBama, that's a long way away from P'cola Beach. Of course, a famous dive bar......but getting there by car on 4th July weekend is NOT a good idea. Boat, yes. Car, no.
