Seville Square has been a battlefield and parade ground. Today it is the focal point for festivals, weddings, and leisure activities because of the many old growth live oaks that shade it. Eateries naturally have been established nearby. Go Retro has partnered with some of the best, offering a tasting tour that will appeal to those seeking a truly unique experience. Trilingual guide and food connoisseur, Hunter May leads this walking tour, which is full of pleasant aromas, good eats, and fascinating stories. The places visited include:
Fish House: Located on Pensacola Bay, it goes without saying that lots of seafood are served there, but what you’ll be tasting are the restaurant’s coveted grits-a-ya-ya. This orange concoction will melt in your mouth and heart.
Hub Stacey’s: Known as the neighborhood bar of Seville, “Hub’s”—what many locals call it—serves drinks and even better sandwiches—especially its layered cuban.
Seville Quarter: This is Pensacola’s most popular and largest entertainment complex. It consists of multiple bars, rooms, and varied music. Several years ago, the family owned operation began a restaurant service. Its most popular dish is the gumbo. Supposedly, the recipe has been in the family for generations.
Dolce Gelato: For everyone’s sweet tooth, ice cream is in order. Sample any two of their multiple gelato options and enjoy the ambiance in a historic house.
Bay Brewery: Catch the craft brew craze and experiment with four brews—all of which are made on site. You will be able to walk and tour the entire brewing operation. It is fascinating.
The tour begins and ends the Fish House (600 S. Barracks St). Book by 5:00 the day before the tour.
