Used their take-out service to bring food back to all, including a sick traveller. After setting out the food, the traveller was feeling VERY hungry, as were the rest of us. The sauces ranged from the typical to the unusual. The choice of vegetables was outstanding; the broiled romaine lettuce (yes, you read that correctly) is worth your attention.

We drove down to Haszard's based on the Trip Advisor reviews and were so happy we did. They had better crab cakes than both Harry's and Caps' on the Water. The pulled pork was better than most BBQ places I've been too. It's a little out of the way, but the food was so good. $6.99 lunch special was plenty... More

We went to Haszards today for lunch. Awesome from beginning to end. The service, food, and prices were all outstanding. The fries make you think you're at Thrashers in Ocean City, malt vinegar and all. Crab cakes with actual crab meat and Old Bay definitely need to be the highlight of the visit. We will be going back for another... More

as a transplanted Marylander, I was excited to hear of this Restaurant, owned by REAL Marylanders. We were not disappointed! They were the best crab cakes, red crab soup, cole slaw, and "Thrasher's style" French fries I have had in 15 years of being in Florida. This is the Real Deal folks,,you will not be disappointed in the hospitality, service,... More

Yes, the blackened Mahi sandwich keeps luring me back Haszards. The continues to be an excellent restaurant that is clean and bright. Wait and kitchen staff are among the best in St Augustine!

My husband noticed this was the cleanest beach restaurant we have ever seen. We LOVED this place. Pretty, clean, beachy, great AC. Also everything was perfect. Great iced tea/lemonade. Hush puppies that had a true cornmeal flavor took me back to my childhood in Maryland. My husband is picky about beef and loved it. The Carolina sauce added a nice... More

Good spot for lunch. I enjoy the ribs and my husband loves the crab cakes. He says he thinks he is in Maryland when he bites into the crab cake. Service is excellent. We often have lunch here. If you are visiting St Augustine you must pay Haszard's a visit. A 15 minute drive from downtown.

Haszards has by far the best crab cakes on the island. They say MD cakes and they mean it!!!! My husband is from MD and when he wants a real crab cake it's off to Haszards we go. The BBQ is freshly smoked by the owner. The fries are hand cut and the onion rings made from scratch. The lunch... More

A great place to get an excellent blackened Mahi sandwich for lunch. The Mahi is thick, flavorful and flakey. Doesn't get much better than that. Service is friendly and professional.

We stopped here for lunch after reading several positive reviews. It is a very clean place, but not very big. The bathrooms were immaculately clean. We ordered onion rings on a recommendation. They were excellent, but WAY to much for two people. If you want them, order them as one of your sides with your meal. I got the pit... More
