Quietwater Boardwalk Marina

We can't talk about boat-friendly restaurants without an enthusiastic nod to the Pensacola Boardwalk restaurants located just minutes from Quietwater Boardwalk Marina. This is a place you'll want to come back to over and over again. It'll take a little time to experience it all. The laidback vibe of the area is the icing on the cake. In fact, two of our top picks are located within walking distance of the marina - Hemingway's Island Grill and Bamboo Willie's Beachside Bar.

Hemingway's Island Grill

When you're ready for creative cuisine that delivers a taste of the islands, you're ready to boat in to Hemingway's.

Bamboo Willie's
