very nice view of the Bay. They allow dogs. Sorry but I don't believe dogs should be in a restaurant, even outside eating areas. Food over prices and not that good,

There is a nice terrace on the water with a great view of the bay. Service is friendly but sadly the food is just average.

I took our group of 7 for lunch and had another ‘not nice experience’. Out of the 7 lunches 5 were cold. Shrimp skewer outrageously over cooked to the point of being hard and stuck together which leads me to believe it was pre-cooked and...More

Very nice atmosphere on the deck, with a gentle Cool Breeze coming from the bay. I had blackened amberjack which was excellent and mixed drinks were really good, too. The service was good even with a large crowd. Want to try brunch the next time.

Nick’s Boathouse was a great spot for lunch! We started out with crab and shrimp dip and cheese sticks (for the non-seafood’r). Both appetizers were great starters. I ordered the fish tacos and they were ok, but the boom boom shrimp was delicious!!! The price...More

The food was good, we are used to above average seafood here in Pensacola, and Nick's did not disappoint. Sisters and I sat on the patio and watched herons, gulls and various ducks soar, dive and paddle around the bay. Service was EXCELLENT.

We have eaten here several times. The biggest problem is lack of consistency with the food and with the service. Not worth taking a chance.

It has a view of the ocean, but you will not get a good quality dinner there, and therefore it will kill the romance. You would be better served by going to the Fishhouse or Peg leg Pete’s. They both have views of the ocean... More
