The Oar House is probably our favorite downtown Pensacola restaurant! You really just can't go wrong by ordering anything here whether it's a dinner or a fish sandwich! Warning... their fish sandwiches are huge! My favorite is the grilled grouper sandwich, wow is it phenomenal! And the atmosphere is spectacular! Only bad thing to say is they have a very... More

Fish tacos were delish and the atmosphere relaxing. First time here and will stop again when on this side of town.

We really enjoy coming here. The restaurant sits right on the water in a bayou, and there is always a lot of boat traffic to watch. But the best part is the food-it is very, very good.

I went here to have a lunch/meeting with a friend/old business partner. I ended up having to take my son, and it was very reasonable. The food was very good, the timing was good as well, didn't have to wait too long.My total wasnt only $25!! That's including my son's food, mines plus my alocoholic beverage :-) The seating area...

This was my first visit to The Oar House. This experience was a fantastic surprise. Dress was casual and the seating was fast. The restaurant overlooks a marina and the canal and the two times we were there the windows were open so that the ocean breeze. The menu was primarily seafood and every disk we ordered was great.

We loved the Oar House. The menu explains the name and the name fits. The restarunt is at the marina with great views.The shrimp and grits and the fish tacos were both very good with large portions. The real surprise was they have happy hour until 6:00 on Saturday and Sunday with great deals. Our service was great.

Get there for Happy hour to enjoy great drinks and reduced priced appetizers. Fantastic Fish Tacos with both indoor and water side seating facing west for unbelievable sunsets. Great service, reasonably priced food with a great view of the marina and its boats.

I stopped here with a customer who lives in the area and we enjoyed a few cocktails. The Location is fantastic as is the waterfront view. The waitress was not so friendly and we felt like we're imposing on her to wait on us. If the owner would like a name I would be happy to provide it so other... More

First time here based on recommendation from a friend - wish we'd come sooner. The open waterfront atmosphere is so relaxing, and the food is excellent. They have the best shrimp & grits I've ever had anywhere and the portion was huge. My husbands fish and chips were equally as good, as were the gator bites appetizer. The service was... More
