New Year’s Eve at Our House


The Fish House, located on the water in downtown Pensacola, is once again preparing to celebrate the New Year.

The Fish House will be offering two special seatings for the evening, in the main dining room, for our annual New Year’s Eve wine and food event. The seatings will be held at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. and will feature the culinary creations of Chef Billy Ballou with a fixed-price, five-course menu along with wine pairings selected by Josh Goldman, Fish House beverage manager. The cost per person is $100 (excludes tax and gratuity) with complimentary favors included. As always, we will offer walk-in service all evening throughout the complex, serving from our standard menus.
