Nick’s Boathouse: A Happy Surprise

Here’s the truth – we were really headed to 5 Sisters, but when we got there and saw all the people lined up and waiting for tables, we thought “uh-uh, not for us” and headed on down the street. We’d wanted to try the new Nick’s Boathouse for a while, and this was the perfect opportunity.


We like the interior. It has different areas where you can sit, not one great big interior where everyone can see everyone. We like the privacy.

The outside area looks like a great place to sit on a nicer day, breezy and covered, or to have a party or celebration of any kind.


I’m a sucker for seafood bisque, and Nick’s has a really good seafood bisque00Bisque

AdventureMan says the gumbo is also awesone 🙂00NicksGumbo

The grilled chef salad was a total win for AdventureMan  🙂


And I adored the grilled salmon Ceasar 00SalmonCeasarNicks

On such a day, having such a good time, we can’t resist dessert, the molten chocolate, LOL and sadly, we tucked right in, neglecting to photograph it first. This is all that remains. Yes, we would do it again. 🙂00RemainderMoltenChocolateNicks

Nick’s Boathouse | 455 W Main Street Pensacola FL | (850) 912-8775


Nick’s is relatively undiscovered, so far. It’s not the see-and-be-seen kind of place that other downtown places – The Fish House, Jackson’s Steak House, Jaco’s, Global Grill – have become. . . yet. As of now, it is still quiet and private with great service. Go now, go quickly, before it changes into a go-to place with a line outside!
