I keep going back for the Mahi Sandwich

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

The couple that runs this place were great to talk to. We opted for beef and ribs on our visit. The ribs were meaty but I did no like the spices on them. The beef was ok in the dinner- it tasted great in a sandwich. Note that some prices have increased but not all menus are updated.

Their pit turkey sandwich is phenomenal. Probably the best Baltimore-style BBQ in the state. Our family makes sure to stop in whenever we're in the area for a fantastic lunch.

Some of the best Baltimore-style BBQ you'll find in the state. Pit turkey is a must have! My wife and I make sure to visit this restaurant whenever we visit the area.

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
