Whiskey Joe’s Bar and Grill Opens in Pensacola
“Floribbean”-inspired Restaurant Expands to 5th Location
Specialty Restaurants (SRC) has officially opened their newest and fifth Whiskey Joe’s Bar and Grill restaurant, situated on Pensacola Beach. Located at 400 Quietwater Beach Road, at the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk, Whiskey Joe’s is a casual, waterfront beach bar known for its “Floribbean”-inspired cuisine, tropical libations, and relaxed island vibes.
The new beachside restaurant features various indoor seating options with views of the Gulf of Mexico, along with nearly 400 outdoor seats divided between tables on the spacious deck and the white sandy beaches. Guests are surrounded by tropical décor that is inspired by the legend of Whiskey Joe, a fictitious alligator tamer whose spirit of food, drink, and song encompass the fun, laidback look of the restaurant. The menu is filled with local specialties infused with Caribbean flavors, including juicy burgers, locally caught fish tacos, grouper sandwiches, gator bites, a raw bar, and much more. There is also a variety of pizza, salads, and burgers to round out the menu to ensure that there is something for everyone’s culinary palette at Whiskey Joe’s.
The bar program specializes in tropical, tiki-inspired cocktails, such as Bushwhackers, Joes Juice, and the Tropical Bahama Mama, served in hand-carved coconuts, along with a variety of margaritas, mojitos, and an extensive selection of local beers on tap. The Pensacola Beach location showcases the brand’s “World Famous Barefoot Bar,” located on the restaurant’s private white sand beach, as well as a 13,000 square-foot main building and event space, featuring a take-out window for to-go food and cocktails. While Whiskey Joe’s has made updates to the preexisting structure, their team made the decision to keep some of the historical components of the building, including refurbishing the stained glass originally installed by the Jubilee Oyster Bar and Grille in 1986. For the convenience of their guests, Whiskey Joes is also located near a public dock where patrons can arrive by boat to enjoy libations and tropical fare.
Whiskey Joe’s is open Sunday through Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight. Seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Whiskey Joe’s also offers Happy Hour Monday-Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m. featuring $4 well drinks and domestic draft beers, $5 house wines, $6 select cocktails, $3 Coors Light aluminum bottles, and half off select appetizers. Large parties are encouraged and an option for a reservation for eight or more guests is available. Party with Whiskey Joe’s on its private white sand beach, expansive indoor event space or outdoor Event Pavilion. Whiskey Joe’s welcomes private events from birthday parties, graduations, weddings to corporate mixers.
