This place is and long has been the quintessential best example of Florida seafood on the planet! It's not about the atmosphere; rather, it's all about the food, which is fantastic!!

I love good fried mullet and this is one of the best places ever. My husband and I both look forward to the days they have mullet backbones as well. Fish is always fresh. Sides are delicious and the staff friendly. I highly recommend for Florida Fresh Seafood. Forget about the chain places.

Just a down-home place. Nothing fancy but that was what we were looking for. Prices were reasonable though the portions could have been better. Wasn't really full when we left. The food was decent but nothing to write home about. Good service.

Recently returned to Pensacola and had Dinner at Chets after many years of being away from home. Still at the same old place, same comfy feeling of a local get together where everyone is always welcome. The food is still great and the portions fantastic. If you leave hungry, its your own fault.

We met friends and was seated immediately. They had fried mullet fingers in cornmeal and wehad the fried grouper. They were both amazing. The sides are simple panhandle fare nothing fancy but its soul comfort food for sure. Don't get dressed up this in country and non pretentious. Banana pudding is good. I've been eating here since 1981.

try the fried mullet and you will be glad that you did. We always visit here when we are in town. This last visit, the grouper was not the best, but the mullet was terrific. You can top it off with a banana puddin. Take cash, as I don't think that they accept credit cards.

I've been coming to Chets 1-2 times a year for the past 20-years and I've never been more disappointed than my last visit this Memorial Day weekend. When we were first seated, I noticed the table top was still sticky. There is no other quicker way to offend a customer. The minute their arms land on sticky stuff on a... More

Food is great! Lunch portions appropriate and reasonably price. Marinated grouper is to die for!!! Fried shrimp breaded lightly was fantastic. Place looks "dated" but don't let that stop you, because the food is great. Service prompt. Friendly staff. Just an all around good experience.

It is a shame they are only open three days a week. The grouper is the best I have ever had and the gumbo is perfect.

I made a last minute decision to eat here and it was GREAT! Chet's is a small, family run business that serves up awesome seafood. I had the broiled marinated grouper and it might have been the best fish ever. Served with two sides and two hush puppies. I could've scrape up all of the delicious sauce. I finished with... More
