What a pleasant surprise! We had crab cakes with real lump crab meat. The best we have found in the St Augustine area. The restaurant has a somewhat low key appearance from A1A South; but, you enter into a bright, clean and friendly restaurant . The food and service were excellent. We have driven past many times but after eating... More

Nice couple from Maryland selling crab cakes like back home, and BBQ sandwiches in small, casual setting. He plays the guitar and sings on Friday evenings, very enjoyable.

I am a local and I love this place. We go here for their great lunch special, crab cakes or their AMAZING crab soup. Really nice friendly, welcoming vibe. Great service. Right across from the beach. Go when they have music...if you like folksy guitar playing of good rock and role classics.

The pork sandwich was average, and unfortunately none of the three sauces offered were very good (A sweet, a hot, and a horseradish - the sweet was crazy sweet, the hot had a mustardy taste, and...

My husband and I were born and raised in Maryland and we love crabcakes! We had passed this restaurant many times while visiting our daughter at Flagler Collage and noticed a sign for Maryland crabcakes. Our daughters used to make the mistake of ordering crabcakes in various vacation destinations until they finally took my advice to not order crabcakes unless... More
