Blue Wahoos Stadium Food Tour

For most, the appeal of a baseball game is in the atmosphere and sounds of the ballpark. The crack of the bat, the roar of the crowd, the sound of the glove catching the ball. But for Joanna Davis (The 850 Foodie), and myself our favorite part is the food of course! And the Blue Wahoos Stadium has stepped up their foodie game once again this year, and we were on a mission last week to find our favorite bites.

We fashioned our latest Wahoos gear, snagged our trusty “Instagram Boyfriends” and headed to the ballpark where the Pensacola Blue Wahoos were up against the Birmingham Barons. First things first, we had to try Perfect Plain’s newest Blue Wahoos  Blueberry Lager which was an instant hit. Light, fruity, refreshing and an adorable can which never hurts.

There are four major store fronts or dining locations inside the Blue Wahoos Stadium which include:

  • Casa De Kazoo: A Mexican food inspired storefront featuring menu items like tacos, nachos and dulce de lech bread pudding bites.
  • The Wheelhouse Diner: A retro American diner with menu items like smash burgers and footlong hot dogs.
  • Fish & Hits Pub: An Irish style pub feel that features everything from smoked BBQ wings to fish and chips.
  • Hook, Line & Sinker: As the name suggests, this is for the seafood lovers where you can find menu items like fried shrimp and smoked Gouda grits.

Apart from the four major storefronts you can find food carts and other dining options like Greeks on the Bay, Rock ‘n Roll Sushi, Chez Mac Gourmet Mac ‘n Cheese cart and Perennial Bar Cart. In addition, there are even more gourmet options in the hospitality lounge and Hancock Club.

That’s A LOT of options. So many that we will need to go back for round two, but here is what we did try last week.

Greeks on the Bay: We opted for the classic Gyro and chicken kebab, both were delicious and easy to eat for convenient ballpark dining.

Wheelhouse Diner: It should be illegal to go to the ballpark and not get a hotdog. Am I right? We opted for their classic foot long hot dog and the heater smash burger. The smash burger was hands down one of our favorites. It featured two smashed patties, bacon, onion straws, American cheese and heater sauce. 10/10!

Fish and Hits: Next up was the smoked BBQ wings we kept hearing about. The house-made Guinness BBQ was in a league of its own and there is nothing wrong with a big basket of fries to wipe up the extra sauce with.

Hook Line and Sinker: On deck was the signature fried shrimp and grits helmet that is served in an adorable mini pink Blue Wahoos Helmet. Inside the helmet you’ll find fried shrimp, Gouda cheese grits, bacon jam and pico de gallo. YUM!

Casa de Kazoo: We were way too full at this point to try the tacos but we did grab some B.P. (Bread pudding) bites for dessert. Fried bread pudding bites topped with cinnamon sugar and caramel drizzle. We ended the night with a snow cone palette cleanser from Kona Ice.

There are so many tasty bites to choose from that it’s almost impossible to try them all in one game, but lucky for us it’s the start of the season and there are plenty more ball games to come this summer. The cherry of top of our foodie tour was the Wahoos 5-4 comeback victory against the Birmingham Barons. Find the full Wahoos schedule here and head out to the ballpark for your own foodie tour. You will not be disappointed!
