Tempt Your Taste Buds

Buttery, smoky oysters, wood-fired locally caught lionfish and what’s that? A fried green tomato topped with crab meat, bacon and a shallot-champagne vinaigrette?

BBQ Shrimp at Fisherman's Corner

Do we have you drooling yet? Pensacola’s cuisine has a mind of its own, combining New Orleans Creole flavors with a southern twisted gulf side experience. Our cuisine is so important to us that we dedicate a whole festival season to it and you’re invited!
