Grouper sandwich and fish sandwich we selected were awesome. Lindsay (bartender) and Jackie (waitress) were very friendly, attentive, and gave us good info for the area in general...the Snow Birds from Canada love this place...happy hour prices can't be beat.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Oar House. We started our meal with a couple of appetizers - Crab & Artichoke Dip and Alligator Bites. We were off to a great start because both appetizers were tasty. We tried a variety of meals from the Fried Crab Claws special, fish platter, fish sandwich, and Gumbo. All were very good and... More

YUM! Oar house has every seafood specialty you could desire. Our party of 7 was seated immediately and Logan gave us fun, exceptional service. Don't you love servers who enjoy their job AND have personality!! Mullet on the menu but I chose Mahi tacos. Super delicious! I did not care for my frozen margarita so stick with tap beer to...

The view is amazing as this restaurant sits right where the fishing boats pass by. The atmosphere is Tiki hut casual. The food was alright- the fish and fries had that "a little bit off" oil taste. They seated some very large groups and kudos to the servers- they kept us all fed and watered and well taken care of... More

Excellent location with good menu choices. Atmosphere is very nice for a meal with a beach / harbor feel. Sand volleyball court out front sets a nice beach feel. Service is prompt and staff do a great job with customer service. A little far off the beaten track but worth the stop.

This place is a gem! As a new "local" of 3 years, I have been on an mission to find the best fish and chips in town. Hands down, this is it! Best fish, best fries, best hush puppies - and what comes out is a plateful aplenty! Their combo fish and shrimp fry is my personal favorite. They also... More

After a day of traveling to the beach we wanted or first taste of seafood. This was not a good start, I had the Grouper poorboy, partner had Oyster poor boy. Asked for grits came with fries. My Grouper was the thinnest I'd ever seen. Breading was just OK. I suggest you look elsewhere, we think they were a bit... More

Two friends and I were shopping in Pensacola when a local highly recommended The Oar House for a late lunch. We found the restaurant on a pier at the marina with no problem and were seated immediately. We ordered a crab dip and tortilla chip appetizer that was fresh and delicious. We all ordered shrimp from the lunch menu. I... More
