Comfort food with a twist!

200+ Bottle iPad Wine List

Relaxed Atmosphere

We take pride in creating unique spins on America's favorite comfort foods and providing a wine list so expansive it needs an iPad just to navigate it. However, thanks to a knowledgeable staff and the interactive and informative iPad list, it's a pleasure rather than a chore to find the perfect wine for you.


While the food is definitely upscale, the atmosphere is very relaxed and the pricing is very fair. This makes Pot Roast & Pinot the perfect place for a nice lunch or a lavish group dinner.


The chef is always creating new brunch, international and soup specials. You will be sure to find something new to try every time you visit.


We can't wait to exceed your expectations!

Our Concept

Our Staff

Max Rowe grew up in Pensacola resident since 1992, graduating Summa Cum Laude at Booker T. Washington High School.   He then moved to Jacksonville where he attended the University of North Florida. He began his adventures in restaurants there delivering pizza and waiting tables at Al’s, and later Brucci’s pizza.


In 2008, Max moved to New York City to study acting at the Stella Adler Conservatory.  It was in New York that he truly fell in love with the restaurant industry, bartending at the House of Brews outside of Times Square.  He later bartended and managed a restaurant group located in downtown N.Y.C., which consisted of the West Village staple Diablo Royale, and the East Village burger joint Black Iron Burger, which got best new burger in N.Y.C. in 2009.  Max also tended bar at the legendary dive, Sophie’s, in the East Village.


 During his breaks from school in New York, Max would return to Pensacola, where he began working for Joe Abston at Hopjacks downtown as a server. Upon his final departure from New York, he began working at Hopjacks full time and later helped open the Tin Cow, 850 Open Water, and finally Pot Roast and Pinot where he has landed as the General Manager.

What People Are Saying

How was your experience at Pot Roast & Pinot?

Everything is outstanding, brunch is made to perfection, lunch pot roast over garlic mash was savory and on point, looking forward to experiencing the rest of the menu. By far best place I've found in Pensacola that doesn't have the Pensacola feel. Make sure to order $3 mimosas for Sunday brunch. Staff is friendly and very accommodating also not a typical Pensacola feature which is quite refreshing.

Delicious food! Slow cooked, soul food. Tried the frito chili pie, never thought bagged chips could make such a dish! Very good!!Had the classic pot roast-- the meat just rolls off down the mound of potatoes and carrots. Very tender. I would highly recommend that dish if you're a new comer. Also had the chicken and waffles. The waffle batter was fluffy on the inside and had the right amount of crisp to it. The chicken was perfectly seasoned and paired great with the waffle. Also, to top my indulgence, I ordered creme brûlée it had a honey-cardamom caramelized crust to it with a side of pecan brittle.


Would I go back here? Oh yes, yes indeed.

Went there today for Sunday Brunch and was quite pleased with the food and service.  I had the Belgian waffle with eggs and their house-made sausage and it was very good and good portion size. My husband had the chicken and biscuits and he thought his was very good as well. The service was very good as well with prompt greeting, order taking, food delivery, drink refills, clean up, and check settlement.  All in all, would definitely go again.

My boyfriend and I happened upon this place by chance while staying in Pensacola Beach. We're from New Orleans, so our expectations for food are pretty high. We couldn't have been more pleased with Pot Roast & Pinot. The atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Their wine list is very impressive and our waitress was more than happy to help us make a selection. I ordered the pot roast, naturally, and my boyfriend had the meatloaf. Both dishes were delicious and the presentation was beautiful. The prices are very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the food and wine. Our bill was under $100 for an appetizer (the butter & toast), two entrees, a bottle of wine, and a beer. We will definitely be returning next time we are in town.
