Peg Leg Pete’s Restaurant

Peg Leg Pete's, Fort Pickens Road, Pensacola Beach, FL, USA



swim, restaurant

Peg Leg Pete's is famous for seafood and fun!

You can arrive by boat at the LaFitte Cove Marina, located directly behind Peg Leg Pete’s Restaurant. The marina has 41 boat slips, four of which are reserved for Peg Leg Pete's. This is one of our go-to spots to arrive by boat to grab some lunch while out for the day. We love that you can pull up to the dock still wet and sandy and fit right in! 

On the main upper level, put your name on the list for seating. It can take a while, but be patient. It is worth the wait! Then head back downstairs to the lower level and let the little ones play on the fenced-in playground while you relax with a cold drink in hand. If you're lucky enough there may be live entertainment on the small stage to enjoy. If not, there is always music playing and you can even take a little walk out to the dock and watch the boats in the canal. 

When your table is ready you will be notified via text and will head upstairs to be seated. By now you should be hungry and ready to eat some local seafood. If you are an oyster lover, this is the place to be! Delicious! The fried shrimp and all other fried seafood items are my weakness, but the menu is fairly extensive with options. The kid menu has more options than a normal kid's menu and is served in a sand bucket with a rice treat! 

Important Tip: Once you are texted or called that your table is ready, do not delay checking in to the hostess stand for your table. They have a 5-minute rule and will take you off the list if you do not arrive in 5 minutes. Yes, I found this out the hard way. 

Either before or after Peg Leg's we really enjoy walking over to beach marker 22A, just west of Peg Leg's to go to the gulfside beach. Take a stroll and walk along the white sand of Pensacola Beach!
