We listened to the guy at the tourist info place who said this was good and get the sampler plate. Do they pay these people i would feel bad about suggesting this place even if i got payed. Staff just stood around the one lady was trying to do it all.

The place was recommended to us by the lady at the tourist info place. It is right across the street and seemed convenient. I wanted seafood. The seafood menu was limited,mostly various ways of preparing shrimp. I had a salad with 6 blackened shrimp which was okay. I liked the avacado and feta cheese and candied pecans, but the cukes...

This place gets packed with customers...location, location, location. Yes, this is a touristy place, the seafood is ordinary, and the service is funky. They offer sides to fish dishes that are rather different like canned peaches (?). Generous salads for the grazers.

Not a big varity to choose from mostly shrimp dishes. Only 1 fish dish a sandwich no dinner. Clam strips were fair some chewy and gritty. Don't order hamburger it was dry.

Stopped in for dinner while visiting family in St. Augustine. Arrived a little early for dinner and restaurant wasn't busy at all. However, before we finished, the crowd had grown significantly...a good sign! The menu has lots of wonderfully sounding entrees but, of course, we could only try a few. My wife had one of the "specials" of the evening...a... More

Read other reviews before eating here tonight. Knew what to expect. Hubby said his blackened mahi mahi was extremely fresh and tasty. I had shrimp appetizer-average sized, average taste. Hushpuppies bland-no seasoning. Same for gator tail. Seated, ordered, and received appetizer in great time. Drinks refilled regularly. THEN came the wait. Waitress had no real answer for delay, but did... More

Went because it was right across the street from the Holly Jolly night of lights trolley tour. They sat or group of 9 quickly even though it seemed very full. The inside is standard seafood family restaurant style. Nothing special. They messed up many of the orders and didn't bring several things after we asked many times. Our bills were... More

I was on a bus trip. Don't get me wrong the food was good but the staff was done with our group long before we were finished. Personally I'm very polite, nothing was ever anticipated . Everything need to be asked for including coffee at the end of the meal. Coffee is not my thing but the wait for other... More
