This is one of the best places to eat in Pensacola and has one of the best views of the bay and sunset.

We went here for my uncle's birthday. We lucked out with Happy Hour timing. The pear vodka drink is amazing. I had the burger and it was super yummy. The view and decent prices make this place great. It's upscale but won't break your pocketbook.

We didn't, but I would be ready for a little wait. They have an open bar which allows you to get a drink and walk around the boat dock while you wait.
