We were seated on the rail overlooking the channel. The water side views are great. The staff servers are friendly and accommodate your every need. The portion and food quality exceeded our expectations. Great for lunch or dinner.

The Oar House is kind of off the beaten path, and as a tourist you probably will not just "find it"... but it is well worth scouting out if you want good local food without the tourist prices. As a local, this is a great palace to set up for your normal rotation. The inside dining area is large and... More

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.

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.
