We were attending a 'Paint Nite' event at the restaurant. Bottles of wine were 30% off, so we enjoyed a decent Malbec. The lobster bisque was quite good. Rich with a good amount of lobster. It was served with crackers, but would have been better with a chunk of bread or toast points. The Jamaican Jerk Wings were very large... More

We took the trouble to stop by this restaurant early in the day to make a reservation, requesting a window table. When we arrived about 5 minutes early, we were told our table wasn't ready, but it would be just a few minutes wait. While we waited to couples walked in without reservations and were seated right away. When we... More

Hemingways is one of the prides of Pensacola Beach but it is not one of my favorites. Actually I never suggest going there but do go go accommodate others in my party. I always have to struggle to find something of interest to me on the menu and the food is just not that satisfying yo me. It's like the... More

Wonderful evening did not have to wait for a table although it was crowded. We had an excellent waitress and the food was very tasty and fresh.

Hemingway's is one of the best places to eat on the island. The view is also fantastic and Jeremy gave us great service. All of our food was excellent and very tasty, from the fish to the pork medallions and chicken Alfredo.

It was a perfect sunny day and we wanted to be able to sit outside. We were shopping in the area and came upon Hemingway's Grill and it had outdoor seating over looking the water.... perfect! The fish tacos were wonderful, a lot of food for lunch. My mother had the Cesar salad, while my dad had the hamburger with... More

I've had multiple visits to Hemingway's for several years. Always great food that includes enough items on the menu for an extremely picky eater like me. The view of the Santa Rosa Sound is Spectacular! The only way to make a great experience even better is to come by boat (a perk of waterfront living); usually, there are plenty of... More

Hemingway's is a great place to relax and enjoy a delicious meal. I recommend the Grilled Long Boat Key Mahi-Mahi. The fish was grilled perfectly. The creamy citrus butter sauce was a delicious addition to the entree. It was my first time eating at Hemingway's, but it will not be my last. I look forward to returning to the area... More

The draw for Hemingway's is the million dollar view of Santa Rosa Sound from the deck. Get a table out there, have a few cocktails, and enjoy. The food was certainly not bad, and the service was friendly. However, if you are a foodie and are looking for fine dining, this is probably not the place. If you want a... More

Definitely one of the finer restaurants in the area. Nice ambiance, not as loud compared to others and there's a water view. They have an excellent Sunday brunch. Food is good.
