We had such a great experience at this restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff and service were great as well! Probably the best calamari we have had in St Augustine. We shared the fish and chips - again I’ll say they were the...More

Outside is awesome. You are on the pier overlooking the water. I recommend the soft shell crab appetizer, the scallops, and best of all the blackened grouper. Note to management: time to remodel the inside.

Glad you liked outside and the food. Thanks for sharing, we appreciate that. The decor inside? Some people find it dated, some find it quaint. Whatever you feel, we will always make you warm and cozy. Thanks again.

My husband and I went there on vacation looking for good seafood. It was average at best with above average prices. I had the special which was blackened grouper over cheese tortellini. It was bland. Would not return.More

Very few words in your review. How was the service? How were the views? Did you split the grouper special or was another great entree served? How were the drinks? I wonder why you even wrote a review. But thank you for coming, and we...More

We found this restaurant by chance during our visit. It was off the beaten path, but well worth it. The waitress was pleasant, honest and attentive to her customer needs...well done

We don't but had a fantastic dinner as we enjoyed the music from a solo act that knew some great riffs. Great location and excellent service. Nice to get out of town(St aug) and not go far. Thanks

This was an amazing restaurant! The Mahi fish sandwich was incredible and my husband's fish tacos were also yummy! We both had blackened Mahi and the seasonings were so tasty.
