Perfect alfresco dining experience

I was drawn in by the quaint cafe tables set up in the garden. Had my choice of tables. I chose one with a bay view. The chef, John is adorable. He came out to discuss my dietary needs (gluten and dairy free) I selected the bang bang shrimp appetizer and grouper entree with customized vegetable... read more

We stopped at The Gourmet Hut because of the beautified outdoor setting on a mind night while in St Augustine. The tables were spread through the trees between two buildings. Service was good but: When the wine we ordered arrived it was much warmer than room temperature. To make it worse, the glasses were probably clean but very cloudy with... More

We were greeted when looking at the standard menu (that we found out was not served all day). Hostess told us that the GF, Vegan/Vegetarian menu would be discussed w the chief at our table. Very small table, I felt a bit strange like sitting at the kiddie table. Waitress asked about our water preference, we choose bottled & she... More

While walking in St Augustine found this restaurant. Would have had our evening meal there however there was a strong chance of rain so instead we went for breakfast. All outdoor seating. One of the best breakfasts we had. Outstanding food and atmosphere. My impression is that the menu is outstanding anytime you would go. Must try the waffles for... More

The food was delicious and fresh, and the outdoor garden setting was beautiful. However, there are only a few tables with shade, so if you go on a hot day like we did or do not want to be in the sun, you should avoid this place. Even though we had a table with shade, we were asked by the... More

I loved the ambiance and nice breeze from the inlet. We started off with a glass of wine and some people watching as well. We both ordered the filet , which was cooked to perfection . While we waiting for our food we couldn't help but hearing a Lady yelling at what I learned later to be her wait staff.... More

I loved this place, is a farm to table restaurant that was to die for. Loved the pace, enjoyed the company and dinner. I felt like they were cooking just my food which was great. Loved the Lamb chops and thank you for the wonderful dessert with the sparkler to celebrate our anniversary

The outside garden area is absolutely beautiful making up for the okay food. The server behind the counter did not know what gluten was, so for those who cannot eat it due to a health condition, be careful. The outside menu claims that this is a "farm to table restaurant" but the vegetables were not even near the quality of... More

My wife and I were in St Augustine for a few days and stumbled upon the Gourmet Hut. It was an incredible little dinner spot. We sat in the garden and enjoyed an awesome dinner under an umbrella and out of the rain. It's fresh catch each day on the menu and fresh to order. Definitely recommend it!
