Peak Places in Pensacola

Food scene
The food is phenomenal but the views are the best part. It’s a perfect ambiance for a romantic meal but they do have a casual Happy Hour from 3-6 daily (only at the bar). It’s just a stunning atmosphere for anyone traveling through Pensacola.

By far one of our most frequented restaurants in the downtown area. Happy hour is from 11-6 daily and we’ve never had anything we didn’t like here. The ahi tuna salad or burger is a must have if you like seafood.

One of the best farmers markets this part of the Gulf with tons of artisans and local crafters. It stretches for what feels like a mile long and is fully equipped with ready to eat foods and local music. If you’re traveling over a weekend, it’s a must see for sure! The market is open every Saturday from 9am - 2pm.

The chef was featured on Food Network, and it shows through nearly every aspect of his menu. This place has some of the BEST and most creative cocktails in the pan handle. The food is stellar and the service is just as good. Just an amazing place to have great food, even better drinks, and remember able but laid back dining experience.

You can’t beat their $5 Hendricks special (served all day everyday) and their traditional Italians dishes [like the lasagna] are an Italian lovers dream! I would skip the bruschetta, it’s disappointing to say the least. But a great place for happy hour and a wonderful location for groups and families.

Vegan Dreams! This quaint cafe turns full on Hoppin’ brunch spot on the weekends and they also offer a dinner special on Thursday nights. This 100% vegan eatery will leave you wondering why you Haven’t converted sooner. The food is beyond delicious, the baked goods are phenomenal, and bottomless mimosas are also an epic feature - they pour heavy!

The best seafood market in town with an array of additional eats like gelato, sushi, international cuisine grocer, wine/beer shop and more! Their personal restaurant is located just off to the right of the market, coined as a local favorite.

I’ll be honest, the branding needs help and location isn’t great. But the FOOD?! Dear god. The best Pho I’ve ever had and the sushi is on point! The service was phenomenal as well. The chef made sure to come out and greet every table to ensure everyone was fully satisfied - and we were! If you appreciate Vietnamese, Japanese and cajan food this fusion style restaurant is right up your alley. Totally delicious and authentic!

Great place to chill and relax on their wrap around patio after a days swim at the beach over looking the marina. We don’t fancy oysters but for those that do we heard this place is pretty good. We do like their crab cakes and shrimp plate. It’s a decent place to go if you’re looking for water side dining and a decent seafood meal.

I’ll be honest in saying the food is not great and the drinks are subpar. But the views? You can’t beat them! Their name suites them perfectly, for the sunsets here are astonishing and worth suffering through mediocre drinks and a fried seafood meals.

Quaint spot, limited menu, good drinks - great place to hangout in the downtown area a little off the beaten path. Great outdoor patio place to grab an app and a few drinks.

New American fare right on the Gulf. You can dine inside their newly built restaurant complete with floor to ceiling windows or take your experience to the deck facing waters. A wonderful brunch is featured on the weekend that’s the most bang for your buck!

This unsuspecting little beach town food shack bangs out some of the best American classic foods we’ve had. The owners take amazing care of the property and their customer service is some of the best we’ve experienced. Their burgers are to die for and they make all their sauces in house. If you’re looking for a good bite and a local beer after hitting the waves, this place is a must go!

It’s comparable to a Smithsonian museum you’d find on DC. Jam packed full of interactive exhibits, simulations, and of course tons of history. You can actually tour most of the planes up close and personal and it’s 100% FREE.

This spot is a bit of a drive but totally worth it if you’re here for a long stint. Just about an hour and 20 min. North of our location, it hosts a secluded and quiet play space and botanical garden area. An Aquaponics and hydroponics garden area is available as well as plant sales, fresh eggs, and various other vegetables depending on the season. It’s a wonderful place to hike and stroll along on a beautiful afternoon. If you’re in the mood for an outdoor experience or a glamping trip, this is your place!

The NAS Pensacola Lighthouse is also a wonderful attraction and located just across from the Naval Aviation Museum on the NAS base, just a 10 min. Drive down the road from our home. A small fee will get you into the lighthouse ground where you can’t tour the lighthouse itself and take a stroll through its historic museum. The views at the top are stunning and a thrill to see.

By FAR my absolute favorite beach in Pensacola. I like to call it sugar beach, the sand is so white and when the sun hits the water just right it turns a gorgeous turquoise color that’s breath taking. You need a beach pass to access to beach, which we have available for you. Equipped with outdoor showers, restroom facilities and BBQ areas, just pack a cooler and you can spend an entire day out here easy.

The best place to catch a glimpse of wild life from jelly fish and sea turtles to dolphins and fish! It costs $1.25 per person to enter the pier where you can take a Leisurely stroll toward the end of the dock and gaze out into the open waters.

Cocktails, speakeasy, breweries
If beer is your thing, we have plenty of it here in Pensacola. Odd Colony is one of our favorites and the “chill” factor is one point here. It reminds us so much of the retro hipster breweries in Denver but still has a laid back feel. Their porter is one of our favs as well as the colonial ale.

Super creative, somewhat fancy, a little on the pricey side, but totally worth it! This chic cocktail lounge is located at the start of the downtown Palafox Blvd. and a perfect place to start or end an evening. They do have a happy hour 4-6 which is nice, but some of their best drinks come off the main menu. Definitely worth a visit if you’re cocktail Connoisseurs like us.

A great local brewery with a refreshing atmosphere. Games can be played outside and they have a fantastic courtyard area out back that’s perfect for large groups or family gatherings. One of the only breweries in town that has a small cocktail list as well.

THIS PLACE. We love it here for so many reasons. Their menu is superb and have literally never had anything we didn’t like. HOWEVER, the reason to come is their happy hour. Not only do they feature one of the best happy hours in town, but their cocktails are handcrafted, delicious, and strong! Just the way they should be. As an added note: their name has pot roast in it for a reason. If you’re looking for a recommendation, GET IT.
