You mentioned Hopkins Boarding House. Unfortunately, it's no longer in operation.
BUT the Coffee Cup, McGuires Irish Pub, Seville Quarter, Pegleg Petes, Joe Patti's and the FloraBama are!
 
And don't forget the Naval Aviation Museum on the Pensacola Naval Air Base. It's Magnificant! They Have EVERY plane the Navy has ever flown on display.
http://www.navalaviationmuseum.org/
It's also the Home Base of The Blue Angels and if you're there at the right time you can watch them Practice.
http://www.navalaviationmuseum.org/explore/blue-angels-practices 

The Coffee Cup.
Great Omelets, Biscuits & Gravy and Nassau Grits! And don't forget to buy a "No Grits, No Glory" Tee Shirt!
http://coffeecuppensacola.com/ 
 
McGuire's Irish Pub is a Must see & Eat place. The Senate Bean Soup is still 18 CENTS! Great Steaks and Fun.
The evenings are a lot of fun and don't forget to "Kiss The Moose"!
They also have a place in Destin which is good too, but it doesn't have the VIBE of the original in P'Cola!
http://www.mcguiresirishpub.com 
 
Seville Quarter is a NOLA style Entertainment Complex with Good Seafood and Cajun Bar Food! Oysters, Gumbo, BBQ Shrimp, Po' Boys, etc. http://sevillequarter.com/ 
 
Pegleg Pete's Oyster Bar on P'Cola Beach has the best deal on Raw & Steamed Oysters - $7.99 a Doz!!!
http://www.peglegpetes.com/  
 
Joe Patti's
The Finest, Freshest Seafood Market in the Universe! Wanna have a picnic on the beach? Go to Joe's and get them to steam some seafood for you or visit their Sushi Bar Cafe or Amangiari's Deli & Specialty Food Market there for Take out!.
http://www.joepattis.com
 
And then there's the Flora-Bama Lounge!
Home of the Annual Interstate Mullet Toss.
Beach Bar, Bands, Beer, Booze & Bikinis!
http://www.florabama.com/
It's been a while since I lived in P'cola so not too familiar with the Ft. Walton, Destin, Sandestin Scene anymore but all these places in the P'cola area are kickin"!
Anywhere you go in the Redneck Riviera in the Summer you're gonna have a good time!

Beautiful. Thanks so much.

You're Welcome. I love P'Cola. I added  few places - Joe Patti's and the Naval Air Museum. I'll probably add some more as I think of them.

It might be too far east, depending on your route, but I liked Pouncey's in Perry, FL:  Absolutely delicious smoked pork, sliced, with a choice of three BBQ sauces. 
 
Address:  Pouncey's, 2186 S Byron Butler Pkwy, Perry, FL 
 
Well, I had put in a link to its Yelp page, but that appears to have been deleted.  Sorry!

We stumbled upon and had a good experience at Tom's Hot Dogs in Panama City Beach.  The original is in downtown Panama City and I would recommend going there.  It is a confusing story, but the dogs here can trace their roots back to the late, great Pete's Hot Dogs in Birmingham, AL.  They even offer scrambled dogs!

Sorry Love2bake, but you need to have about 30 posts before you can post links. Don't agree with that all the time but it does prevent 1-2 time spammers from posting junk. I've eaten there too and it's a good place! I'll post it for you.

To my Way of thinking, The only way to see the real FL Panhandle is on US Route 98 starting in Perry FL and going West to Gulf Shores AL. That road takes you thru an area that is unique. From Perry to Panacea to Carrabelle to Eastpoint to Apalachicola to Port St. Joe to Mexico Beach has a bunch of local Hole-In-The-Wall Mom & Pops serving mostly seafood in it's various forms. The best oysters in the world are found in Apalachicola at the Up The Creek Raw Bar, The Owl Cafe, Or the Boss Oyster Bar at the Apalachicola River Inn.

AND there is an actual place called the "Hole-in-the-Wall Seafood Market & Raw Bar"
In Mexico Beach check out Killer Seafood. Features Smoked Mullet Fish Dip and Grouper Fish Tacos! Pick up some of their Simmerin' Sauce to take home. Their Key Lime Pie Was voted the #1 Dessert of 2008 on Roadfood.com!
http://www.killerseafood.net
Once you get to Panama City, Drop down onto Rt 30A. It gets you close to the Gulf and some beautiful scenery.
Go on to Santa Rosa Beach and Destin. Both areas are loaded with restaurants to numerous to mention.
Pick up Rt 399 in Navarre. It's on a sliver of a sand bar with views of the Gulf on one side and The Sound on the other. Takes you to P'Cola Beach and Gulf Breeze.
The total distance from Perry to Gulf Shores is right at 200 miles. It's a beautiful 200 miles of varying landscapes and delicious Seafood!

Newly opened in the past couple of months is "India Palace" in Pensacola. Brunch 11:00 til 2:00 except closed Mondays. Opening at 5:00 order from menu from a wide selection and enjoy really great Indian fare. I am long ago lover of really good Indian food as is my wife. Best ever we used to enjoy in London. Have also found many good places in NYC but in Pensacola, until India Palace opened, we only had one other choice and it was NOT good.
 
Enjoy "India Palace" and avoid "Taste of India".
