With a couple locations, this did feel like a bit like a chain. The service was always great. The food was good but not memorable. They have a great drink menu and it does get busy at night.

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Salt Life Food Shack takes a great deal of pride in our scratch kitchen and fresh catch. It's disappointing to hear that you felt like we are "a chain". We do have several locations however, we are everything but a chain. We are very much in tune with the local community. In fact the owner happens to be a local as well.

Regarding your comment on food, we're happy to hear it was good but but disappointing to hear it wasn't memorable. In the future; if there is any area of dissatisfaction; please bring it to the attention of a manager while you are in the restaurant. We will be happy to recook, replace, or remove the food item from the bill. Thank you for your business and we hope you give us another try

Because of Trip Advisory, this was our first night stop— good choice. Nice beachy atmosphere— good food— a good beginning of our time at the beach.

We ordered a nacho appetizer and it was awesome and a huge portion. We were all pretty full and when the food came out we managed to eat it all! It was so delicious!

When on vacation we usually eat at the St. Augustine location which is always an excellent experience. So the original had a lot to live up too.

The joint had a fun vibe, it was clean.Table of 7, only waited a few minutes. The restaurant was busy. Server was very attentive from the start and continued throughout the meal.

We ordered salad, sushi, shrimp, oysters, burgers & pasta and everything came out hot & delicious. We shared several deserts which were good also.

A very positive experience overall and the consistency between the two locations was spot on.
