My wife recently came across Cub's while in the Pensacola area. Wow! We are glad we did. We each had the Shrimp Boat. The shrimp, potato, corn and sausage was seasoned just right. It's a small place but the food is excellent. We liked it so much we went back the next day to try the crab legs. Highly recommended.

My wife had the Jambalaya and I had a Crawfish boat. We also got a cup of spivey mushrooms. The Crawfish boat comes with boiled potatoes, corn, and mushrooms. Everything was cooked perfect. The mushrooms were out of this world good. Prices were very reasonable and I could not finish all my food. This was a little gem that I... More

This has quickly become my favorite place. The gumbo is the best I've ever had. Its a small dive looking place but dont be afraid. Its perfection in a bowl. Save room for some banana pudding!

Best visited when crawfish are in season. Buy live to take home for a low country boil or eat in there cozy restaurant. Off season the lean Louisiana cuisine with pretty good gumbo.

Went by the Lillian Highway location, yesterday, Monday 6/13 about 1PM. They were closed? Where is the Pensacola location and what are the hours?

I was reluctant to right a review on this place for fear it will be crowed when we go but... If you like craw fish this is the only place to go if you don't believe me I am cool with that because I will not have to share. If craw fish is not you thing they have plenty of... More

This place is GREAT! Definitely a must try next time you visit the area. People were nice and food was great. Unsure how to eat crawfish or how much to get, don't be afraid to ask them; they were very helpful getting us fixed up! I'll be back for sure!

They have crawfish galore but I ordered the rice, beans and sausage and also the chicken sausage gumbo! Let's just say I had an epiphany of how real homemade Southern Cajun food taste like! A good ole home down place you don't want to miss.

Found Cub's on Yelp and the reviews didn't disappoint. It's literally in a little turquoise trailer, hidden in the trees. Easy to miss. But you'd be silly not to make the u-turn to go back for it! The food was great - big servings, reasonable prices. All kinds of Blue Angels memorabilia on the walls. Hubby got the yelp-recommended 'shrimp... More
