Grouper ceviche and shrimp pappare made the Floridian our favorite spot. Inventive, heathy and tasty meals, plus unique beers. Great spot.

This is a small place with a very eclectic decor. The food was very good. They have gluten free menu items. We had the Dixie burgers and they were very good. While you are waiting for your meal take the time to take in the decor. Interesting and enjoyable place to eat.

The food here is absolutely amazing. The chef has an ability to make the most wonderful food from the most bizarre combinations. I have never had a bad meal there and it is a MUST when visiting St. Augustine. While I didn't allow it to effect my rating, the ownership/management could use some work. They do not take "reservations" but... More

The food is amazing. Extremely fresh and much of it is locally sourced. Southern with a twist. The shrimp and grits are the best that I've had and I have had it a lot of places. My wife loves their salads.

Two Words ...Shrimp Pappare! I love this restaurant. It is an unexpected treat in the great town of Saint Augustine. Reasonably priced for the best food I've had in a restaurant in a long time. My motto is, If I can make a better meal at home; then why eat out. Well I can't and congratulate the chefs and staff... More

A friend of mine that used to live in St Augustine recommended this restaurant (in ALL CAPS via text :) when I asked where we should eat dinner. We've been to St Augustine many times before but wanted something different and we weren't in the mood to dress up as it was SO hot but we wanted, good, local food.... More

Looks are not everything. This little restaurant was cute and the food was well seasoned, and fresh tasting. The service was good and prices reasonable. There are also yummy baked goods. We would go again.

Our visit to the Floridian was, perhaps, our biggest surprise on our most recent trip to St. Augustine. In fact, my partner and I returned for a second meal during this past trip. First of all, the service was wonderful for both meals. We had a 20 minute wait for our first meal but the host took my phone number... More

I only had a drink & a light food sampling. The place looked like fun but we came at a slow time. I would give it another try if I was in the area again.
