Our group of 4 went for an early dinner. Had the wet burrito, island bowl, tacos and the mud pie. Everything was delicious, fresh ingredients and made from scratch. Good beer selection. A little off the beaten path but definitely worth a visit!!

This is the second time we ate here and we were not disappointed with our meal either time. My husband & I both had the special that day which was the shrimp Philly. It was a delicious sandwich made up of grilled shrimp, onions, peppers and provolone cheese on a hoagie roll. I got mine with the pasta salad &... More

Large portions, great food, great service, very casual. A great option when your looking for comfort food. It's the perfect place to go with friends who want to eat good food and just hang out.

I Had dinner there with my son. The food and service was great, the jerk chicken nachos were outstanding. The cook times were a little long, but that gave us time to talk. We will Definitely go back again, we just won’t go when we are starving.

Little house converted to a restaurant off the beaten path in St. Augustine. Very good food, I had the back 40 burger and my wife had the Wet burrito, both were very good (the wet burrito is HUGE!). Prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity. Don't go here if you're looking for an upscale or romantic experience -... More

We went here on a recommendation and it was on the money. Food was great and portions huge. It's an old house which was pretty cool We happened to catch happy hour which was an added bonus with specials on drinks and food. The wait staff is obviously hired on personality and does a great job. 3 adults with drinks... More

The menu has something for all tastes and age ranges. I love to take the kids here when we visit St. Augustine. On a beautiful day, their patio is a great place to sit. This place is off the beaten path, but I found it because of a local's recommendation. I sure wish I could find that person and thank... More

Fresh food, nicely prepared and affordable. Happy hour available with discounted wine. The shrimp curry dish is scrumptious...though if you don't like much heat in it ask for lightly seasoned shrimp. I did ask and it was still hot to me, so am not sure if the cook got the message. Alex had the Teriyaki Chicken...he loved it. Second visit... More

Cuban was delicious. Black beans and rice were okay, but a bit bland. The Back 40 Burger and pasta salad weren't very good at all. The meatloaf for the burger didn't seem fresh, maybe a day old?
