Description: The Fish House is local,dockside dining overlooking beautiful Pensacola Bay and Seville Harbor. Just steps away from Historic Seville Square, our award-winning restaurant features an inventive menu of fresh, daily seafood selections, house-smoked steaks, sushi, a handpicked wine list with over 300 wines, and our world-famous Grits a Ya Ya: A delectable Southern specialty of our smoked Gouda cheese grits smothered with a sauce of fresh cream, sauteed Gulf shrimp, spinach, portobello mushrooms, applewood-smoked bacon, garlic, and shallots. Full bar. Late night menu. Brunch on Sundays. The Fish House Deck is comprised of 3,500 square feet of the coolest deck in town on the water! With its own bandstand, fire pit, and maritime-inspired bar with plenty of seating, the Fish House Deck Bar has quickly become the evening gathering spot for locals and visitors alike. Happy hour runs from 4 p.m. till 6 p.m., 7 days a week with live music nightly and Ladies' Night with $2 drinks every Wednesday.The Atlas Oyster House, located on beautiful Pensacola Bay only steps away from its sister restaurant, The Fish House, offers a waterfront dining experience that's a bit more casual than you'll find next door. Atlas is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. It is "the place" to find delicious local oysters. Apalachicola Bay and East Bay oysters are harvested and driven to us fresh each day. Try them raw, baked, or steamed. The freshness and taste of these savory mollusks can't be beat.Atlas prepares locally caught fish and shellfish-such as red snapper, grouper, mahi-mahi, blue crab, and Gulf shrimp-in a variety of ways. The menu also includes cold-smoked steaks, chicken, and pasta entrées as well as daily specials, sushi, and a children's menu. In addition, many Fish House favorites are served at Atlas. The dessert list includes our famous key lime pie. Don't miss Tuesdays for half-price sushi and $2.00 domestic draft beers starting at 5 p.m. and going until 10 p.m.

We love the service, the people is very nice at the restaurant. The food is explosive in flavors. I recommend it.

The restaurant is a little expensive but We will come back!

Everyone told us to visit here, and by the reviews I thought it would be amazing. Food we had was mediocre...calamari was not very good. I had the crab cake sandwich, which was ok, but not impressive. Waitress was ok, but not very friendly. Food did come in a timely manner and our orders were correct. Bathroom was very clean. There was nothing that was particularly bad, but we didn't eat or experience anything impressive either.

Had lunch here as it was within walking distance to our hotel. Parking lot was full...good sign! The sea food was great and the sides were fantastic. Large enough to share all around. Everything was good but the pecan crusted shrimp was outstanding. Our server, Samantha, was very efficient and pleasant. While the place was busy service was great.

Quick trip on business and had dinner for 8 here on a weeknight. Drinks on the deck were great, good bartenders and lively crowd. Manageable and fun noise level. Dinner was under-whelming. Tried tons of the apps and the chicken was the best thing (really yummy) BUT THIS IS A SEAFOOD PLACE. Was hoping for more from the crabs legs -- bunch of tiny crabs legs in buttery sauce that was just OK. Calamari was pretty standard fare. Did not try the sushi, but table near ours looked content with a big order. Service was a little spotty for a not super busy night and the hostess was pretty wonderful, making sure we were comfortable. But the menu items are pretty crazy over complicated with lots of sauces and menu sizzle that didn't meet our groups expectations. Like the alligator spring rolls -- they were OK but cannot recommend. A menu curiosity that lots of people probably order because it sounds interesting. Its not that interesting.

Though very busy and a great display of celebrity visitors we found the food a bit lacking in seasoning. The parmassan crusted grouper, though cooked very well was lacking in flavor. Their great in-house made roumalade sauce was the redeeming part of this for this plate. The wilted vegetables were alo lacking in flavor.

My wife had the Shrimp and Grits ya-ya and that was great. The best Shrimp and Grits she ever had.
