My wife, son, daughter in law and I celebrated my wife's birthday at O'Briens. We started with the crab cake appetizer. The cakes were made Savannah style with a nice crust. They were accented with a jalapeño dill sauce which had dust the right amount of heat. I had the Elk with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The elk... More

Hubby & I did date night ..do suggest you call ahead for reservations. Very expansive wine list and oysters Rockefeller are to die for...pass on the crackers and ask for extra basket of bread with oysters! Jordan, our waiter, was attentive and friendly and I recommend this hidden jewel in Pensacola!

On our last night in Pensacola Beach, my husband and I wanted to find a relaxing place for dinner. Every place I researched on TripAdvisor had more than their fair share of valid complaints (including mention of food poisoning, dirty conditions or the place going down hill) but I kept on searching. I wanted our last night to be special.... More

My swim class had lunch today. The restaurant was very noisy. I had chicken piccata . The flavor was good but the chicken was tough. We tried almost every dessert. The bread pudding was delicious as was the cream brûlée .

I went for a birthday. Disappointing is an understatement. We both had a wedge salad. They had no taste. Nothing was mixed just on the plate in slices making it hard to eat. Flavor is missing...

O'Briens is one of the few, if not the only, fine dining restaurants located away from the downtown Pensacola area. They have daily specials and will gladly substitute another vegetable for a carbohydrate. Their service is always superb with a very knowledgeable wait staff. I highly recommend O'Briens if you are looking for a fine restaurant away from downtown.

Called about a week ahead to see if we could make a reservation and order dinner at 4:00 p.m. This apparently was an act of Congress that a SPECIAL exception would be made for us to order dinner an hour early on such a busy Tuesday afternoon...(we were the only people in the entire restaurant when we left.) We had... More

I don't really want to give this bad review because my husband and I have been a regular at O'Birn for the past few years. But the last two visits there were big disappointment. I ordered lobster stuffed grouper, and my husband ordered the special, seared tuna. The meals were very salty to the point that I could not finish... More

This is where we go for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Traditional and low key setting. Wonderful seafood dishes, always great specials, satisfying Sunday brunch. I understand they have had the same chef for years. He seems to put quality and variety first week after week, year after year. Professional and cordial staff.

Service is fantastic! Brie cheese is my favorite food to get when I come here and I do go often! Lunch tends to be busy but it's with the wait! They have a back room that can be reserved for parties too!
