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 Whiskey Joe’s brand can be found throughout the state of Florida with additional locations in Miami, Ellenton, Port Richey, and Tampa. Across all locations, Whiskey Joe’s offers mouthwatering island-inspired dishes and tiki cocktails that complement the breathtaking waterfront views of the local area. The menu is filled with local specialties and Caribbean flavors, including juicy burgers, locally caught fish tacos, grouper sandwiches, gator bites, and a raw bar. The bar program specializes in tropical, tiki-inspired cocktails, such as Bushwhackers, Joe’s Juice, and the Tropical Bahama Mama, served in hand-carved coconuts, along with a variety of multiple 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 park their boats while enjoying libations and tropical fare.
The new beachside restaurant features various indoor seating options with views of the Gulf of Mexico, along with almost 400 outdoor seating options divided between tables on the spacious deck and the white sand beach. Guests will be 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.
Whiskey Joe’s will be open Sunday through Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight. There is live music at the restaurant on Friday and Saturday from 8 p.m. -midnight and Sunday from 3-7 p.m. Whiskey Joe’s also offers Happy Hour Monday-Thursday from 3-6 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.
