It was just OK.

My first trip to Pussers in Ponte Vedra Beach. And I thought it was OK. Not bad, not great. I felt the prices for the entree's were a little on the high side. I had the grouper... and it was good. But $25 for some fish and potatoes is a bit much. My wife had the shrimp Pad Thai... and... read more

Very nice restaurant; great wait staff; generally good food, and great desserts. Just skip the shepherd's pie because it wasn't very good. I ate the mashed potatoes off the top and left the meat and veggies. Maybe it was the gravy or some particular flavoring in the mix, but it just wasn't enjoyable. I'd go back and try something else... More

While visiting friends we went to Pusser's twice. Between 4 and 7 they have specials each day for $5/6. On Monday it is firecracker shrimp, very similar to the bang-bang shrimp at Bonefish Grill. The portion was big enough for a dinner if one prefers small meals. On Wednesday the special is a dozen oysters for six bucks! I don't... More

We got the Ahi Poke which was quite good and some oysters on the half shell, which were ok. My seared grouper was also very good. But the star of the show was the Painkiller. I had three of them! Awesome rum drink created on a tiny BVI island called Jost Van Dyke. If you come here, you must try... More

I typically avoid the busy times at any restaurant, so admittedly this review is from a visit when the restaurant staff was not stressed. So my comments are focused on atmosphere and attitude. Both were excellent. There are two outside decks, the lower of which is split level and provides couch like group seating above with waterside tables below. The... More

Food is very nice here and service is good. On happy hour they have half off the drinks and 5 dollars appetizers (popcorn shrimps, crab dip, etc). Go here very often and never disappointed in food or service. The parking can be really tough, specially on some holidays when they put cones in the parking spaces and force u to... More

Pusser's is my "fall back" spot because I know I can always get a good meal from their large menu - and the preparation has always been close to excellent! Wait staff is well informed and very cordial and respectful, (No "honey" or "sweetie") which is sometimes used in places by young wait staff to address much older patrons. I... More

I love the half price happy hour at Pussers. We order two or three items with our wine and beer. They are outstanding and enough for dinner.

First of all the ambiance is wonderful...whether it is a lovely window table with a view of the fountain or a private booth booth are extremely comfortable. The service is prompt, informed and always with a smile. Quite a vast menu from awesome starters to fab salads. My mother raved about the spinach and goat cheese salad, think she liked... More

I was underwhelmed by my meal at Pusser's. The Firecracker Shrimp dish was OK, not great. I probably made a mistake ordering the Grouper Ponte Vedra - the hollandaise sauce was not to my liking. The service was quite good - no complaints there. All-in-all, it was what it was - an OK meal at a chain restaurant.
