My husband and I finally tried Haszard's on our last night in St. Augustine. What a delightful little gem. My husband had the crab cake - he couldn't stop raving over how good it was. He enjoyed the Cole slaw and beans, as well. The hush puppies were amazing. I chose the blackened mahi fish tacos... read more

First time visit for all 3 couples, warmly greeted by the owners and seated immediately, cozy beach decor, clean and comfortable. As we all have been to Annapolis Maryland, the opportunity to have "real Maryland crab cakes was too overwhelming not to try. 2 couples had the crab cakes and 1couple the fish taco, the taco's were very good, as...

Best crab cakes I have ever had. Menu was diverse enough to please my entire family. You have to try the Corn nuggets, best thing I have ever tasted.

We had dinner here our first night in St. Augustine's. The owners were friendly and attentive. My children enjoyed looking at the murals on the walls and picture to search for the 36 crabs around the restaurant. They made my son the 4th of July special- burger with sausage and bacon. This picky kid raved about it all week long.... More

I think that the person who wrote the worst restraunt in St. Augustine must have had a bad day period. I was also there the same night and what a nice surprise the music was. I was not expecting it. It was actually fun and felt welcoming. and the crab cakes were outstanding. they were so full of crab meat... More

We live in St.Augustine and know all the good restaurants to eat at,we took another couple out to dinner and thought we would give this one a try since they boast of the BEST crabcakes and ect. The owners apparently think they can sing because that was the live entertainment,they should put in a juke box and I'll leave it... More

Gee your title "worst restaurant in St Augustine" is a little harsh. I beg to differ. I am hoping anyone who reads your comment while checking out our site will realize you are in a super extremely small minority according to the other responses we have. Still, we are sorry we didn't fulfill your expectations. We are not in business... More

Family run restaurant with friendly staff, though our server was either too busy or not efficient as our orders were delivered incomplete. The owners provide entertainment occasionally, two singers with a guitar, playing oldies but goodies. Worthy of one meal but we didn't return.

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
