We passed Chet's and saw lots of cars in the parking lot so we turned around and went back for lunch. We had mullet and grouper and both of really enjoyed our lunch. I had a half serving and it was as much food as you get in a whole dinner at other restaurants. We would highly recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyed Valentines night at Chet's. The grouper special was excellent! Hope that it will be on the menu next time I'm in town! Service was outstanding. Only wish they didn't run out of oysters!

This is a local Pensacola seafood restaurant on the west side of Pensacola on Navy Blvd. It's mostly frequented by locals, and you'll probably see older cars as well as new Mercedes in the parking lot.. It's only open Thurs-Sat. The owner catches most of his on fish. It's a small restaurant, and you may have to wait outside until... More

Driving from Texas to Alabama, we were looking for a place for lunch and searched my app and found Chet's. Use your GPS to find them as they are not just off IH10 but well worth going out of the way to eat. The parking lot was packed for a good reason. The food is fresh and hot. I have... More

We drove to Pensacola from Montgomery, Alabama just to eat at Chet's. I had the seafood platter. Everything on the platter was excellent, but the mullet is still my favorite. I am ready for my next trip to Pensacola. I also like the fact that it is BYOB. We rolled our cooler full of beer right into the restaurant!

Chet's has thrived despite a limited menu and small dining area. The secret is they serve fresh, local seafood that comes to your table hot and tasty. You can have your mullet, grouper or other Gulf seafood fried or broiled. It will arrive quickly on a hot metal plate accompanied by fresh hush puppies. Other side dishes include fries, cole...

This little seafood restaurant is busy especially for lunch. This is where locals eat regularly. You'll see lots of cars but they pack'em in. Fast service. If you like mullet filets this is the place. Seafood available fried or broiled tasty either way.

We had a large group with everyone balancing healthy and good. For those who chose broiled the fish seemed over cooked and dry. I had their fried mullet and it was perfect. THis is not a fine dining establishment. Give them the chance to do what they do best - fried seafood.

Excellent seafood! It is always fresh , hot, and tasty. Mullet is great. It is not available in lots of places. Had shrimp and mullet plate. Excellent. Also seafood plate is great. I would recommend to everyone. Best little seafood restaurant in Pensacola. It is not fancy just plain good. It is only open Thursday - Saturday.

Very good fried seafood selections and sides served in an older building that you could describe as humble at best. Homey, seafood shack feel. Would have rated it higher but the seafood gumbo was so salty it was not edible. That had to be a mistake, as I was not the only one to send it back. I'm guessing the... More
