loved the walk out to the restaurant along its own jetty. met by very friendly and welcoming staff. server brought our drinks along with a basket of bread. along the window ledges are little flaps that you can lift and feed the fish and seagulls with the bread provided. children enjoyed this alot. can really recommed the fish tacos, they were delicious as were the burgers. great value for money as well as fantasic views.
I Am Going To Overlook This Restaurant's Flaws For It's Sheer Fun a great direct WATERFRONT Adventure. We were searching for a VIEW and this one by far was the most beautiful and entertaining therefore making up for some of the restaurants flaws. We read all of Tripadvisor reviews over the past few months while we were en-route to this place for lunch yesterday. Had we followed all of the negative, stay away from this place, too expensive advice we would have missed the ADVENTURE of this restaurant. I travel a lot and this is the first time I have had a restaurant offer tableside feedings to the birds and catfish while you dine. They give you a basket of bread and there are little windows that open to the outside and you toss the food out to the birds outside the windows. The 100's of catfish are below your table and you can also drop food down to them. It is a feeding frenzy. A blast for everyone. We ordered the fried sampler and it was good. We shared it. The floors were very sticky carpet it needs to be ripped out seriously. Management should take that piece of criticism to heart from several patrons and get rid of the carpet. The tables were sticky NOT because they were dirty but because of the FEEDING windows from outside constantly being opening with the salt air. The service as many put is is OUTSTANDING and FAST. We had Jessica. We will definitely go back with our two kids but only for Lunch we love watching the boating traffic in the daylight. In off season coming up the restaurant closes on Wednesday's for LUNCH service. Call ahead.
I visited this restaurant when I was a small child and loved that it sat out over the water and obviously the ability to feed the fish from the table. I could not wait to share this experience with my children and the experience was still great.
We've eaten here 3 or 4 times over the past 15 years and always enjoy the view. The tables are along the water with built in doors to feed the fish with. Instead of throwing away unused rolls, the servers bring a basket for you to feed the fish with - and they are looking for it, too. Great entertainment for the kids, and adults, too. We enjoyed a cup of the chowder,then shared a Mahi sandwich, both very tasty. Very nice servers.
If you have little ones, this restaurant is a must. Ask to sit all the way in the back on the water. The ledge by your table has trap door that allows you to feed the fish. What a hoot!! Kids and adults alike really enjoyed it. Food was great too!!
Restaurant sits on stilts on the water which was nice. The staff were excellent and atmosphere pleasant. Adult meal will run $18-$25 for entree for dinner. Ordered several things but blackened mahi mahi was the fav.
Food was excellent. The view is amazing. The waiters were very nice. I definitely came back, when ever I go to st. Augustine again.
This Restaurant has got the most amazing view in all of St. Augustine. I like it after dark the best because of the lights. It sits on the pier or dock and looks towards St. Aug. I really enjoyed there hamburger and fries and there black & blue burger. And the beer is the coldest!!! Everyone is very friendly and it was an enjoyable experience. Would go back and I do!
My husband wanted to bring our children here cause he went here as a young boy 30+ years ago on a family trip to FL'! Happily our kids got a kick out of it too!! It is dated but adds to the charm. Food was good only real complaint would be service they were kinda surely. Hopefully our kids can relive a memory with their own kids one day.
We were quite pleased with our experience as a whole not only was the view amazing but the fish tacos were great also!
