Seafood the Southern Way

Whether you desire an elegant waterfront restaurant, a laid-back beach bar, downtown dining, or something in-between, Pensacola is just the place to satisfy any seafood craving. Because of the area’s rich history, you’ll be able to find everything from French flavors and Spanish savors to southern Cajun cooking. 

If you are looking for a family-friendly restaurant, several casual beachfront seafood spots go above and beyond, providing outdoor space for activities such as children’s play areas and volleyball courts. You may also want to consider making your travel plans during The Pensacola Seafood Festival, Taste of the Beach, or the Pensacola Crawfish Festival for a delicious and memorable seafood experience. 

Want to try living like a local? Visit a seafood market, buy your favorite seafood staples, gather family and friends, and cook up your own seafood feast! The hardest part will be choosing between all the fresh seafood options, like shrimp, oysters, crab, lobster, mullet, grouper, snapper, and salmon, just to name a few.
