It’s time for another weekly installment of Restaurant Review Sunday. This past week I traveled to Pensacola, FL and was in a unique situation with very limited choices. The restaurants I ate at would not have been my first choice as a celiac, but I did manage to find something safe and keep from starving.
The first night my group ate at the Fish House. This is a nice location on the water that has a sister restaurant beside it called Atlas. Both menus had some options with a GF next to them on the menu, so that was why we ate here.

The gluten free selections were limited, especially considering I’m not a huge fan of seafood: my choices for main entrees were steak, salad, or fish. I choose the sirloin steak. For gluten free sides (that were also pork/nut free), there was cheese grits, asparagus, and not listed but mentioned in the special was fingerling potatoes. I had my favorite fingerling potatoes and asparagus. (I apologize, I forgot to take a picture until I had already started to eat my steak.)
My steak was severely undercooked, so I sent it back. It took a while and when it was returned to me, it was very fatty and tough. I was happy it was safe, but it left me a bit unsatisfied, I also splurged for dessert. The vanilla bean creme brulee was delicious.
Overall, it was safe, but expensive and the quality wasn’t great.
(As always, I wasn’t compensated for my review and this was my own personal experience and opinion.)
