Tonight they accommodated us with comfort for a wheelchair and Wonderful Gluten Free choices! This was some of the best fresh food we've ever eaten! I had GF BBQ Chicken and Waffles. No not any ordinary C & W. This was gourmet fluffy GF waffles, warm fruits, nuts and cheese with a ton of BBQ chicken. Hubby had Shrimp &... More

This was my first visit to the Floridian. It exceeded all expectations. Clearly this is a popular local gem, and you will have a wait unless you call ahead. However it does not feel "touristy" at all. We sat in the beer garden in back which was very pleasant, though the inside restaurant looked just as welcoming and fun. The... More

Yesterday while exploring St. Augustine a bartender down the street recommended that we have dinner here. He raved to us about the excellent meatloaf sandwich and the farm to table style. We decided to try it out and wow, he was right! We ordered the fried green tomato bruschetta to get started and it was delicious! We split the meatloaf... More

A little more "granola" for my taste, nice setting though. They only serve beer and wine which is probably fine for most.

My wife and I were spending a few nights in the area and The Floridian was recommended by the staff of the hotel where we were staying. We chose to dine during lunch and the service was provided by a group of young ladies who seemed to really enjoy their jobs and who did everything to assure we were taken... More

I discovered this gem by chance and what a pleasant surprise, Everyone was super pleased with their meals, excellent service. My children loved their meal, we all tried something new and different and it was overall an amazing dining experience. The meals are an incredible blend of southern and comfort food and healthy and good for you meals. I would... More

Taking 2 dogs on a family vacation usually limits dining out. The Floridian came through for us. They claimed dog friendly, but upon arrival near the end of lunch service the patio was full. A very busy server said we were welcome to take our dogs in the courtyard and we could order from the back ( Meaning :order at... More

On our first visit for lunch a couple months ago, we enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Portions were adequate and tasty. I ordered a beer that did not appear on the check. I noted it to a 'manager' passing by. He said "thanks for being honest" and added it to the bill...rather than saying. "It's on us". We tried them... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Saint Augustine. Absolutely love the seasonal menu and fresh organic food. Atmosphere is a 10/10, as is the decor. Southern cooking with a healthy/gourmet twist

This restaurant has plenty of options for vegetarians, many in my family are vegetarian or vegan yet others are not. The Floridian had something for everyone. My wife was a little disappointed with the pickled pepper shrimp. Maybe not such a good value for the money too be honest. This is the only thing keeping me from rating it with... More
