Be sure to go to Salt Water Cowboys at sunset and watch the sunset over the marshland. It is some of the most beautiful scenery you will ever see! The food was really good too! My husband had the ribs, and they were great! I had the barbeque shrimp and they were fantastic! We will definitely go back!

The only thing that was good about this place was the service and atmosphere. The chicken was dry, the clam tenders were obviously from frozen, not fresh ( and its a seafood restaurant), the gator tail appetizer was over breaded and over cooked, and the seating was hard on the back. We have service dogs and for their service at... More

On our second day in St. Augustine, we decided to go out to eat for dinner. I was looking at all the restaurants that had ads in the book in our hotel room (Beacher's Lodge). Something about Salt Water Cowboys stood out, so we picked that one as the one to try. When we arrived, we were able to find... More

My son thought this place looked "cool" and told us to try it while we stayed at the Colony Reef Club because it was so close. The sunset over the marsh that night was sublime. We enjoyed the rustic ambience and the service was the best! I found the frog legs excellent, better than I have ever eaten before and... More

We eat here every time we go to St Augustine and it never disappoints! Had grilled shrimp on a stick, peel and eat shrimp and fried shrimp and they were delicious!

This restaurant is at the end of a residential street. It is situated in the salt water marsh area. You can sit inside, or outside. We sat outside on the wrap around porch that is built around a huge tree. You are right on the banks of the marsh and can watch people fish on the pier next to the... More

We called ahead and avoided a long wait (15 minutes).That was a nice option. The view and atmosphere are nice, but parking is limited. The sunset over the marsh land is beautiful! I ordered the seafood combo blackened (not spicy at all), which was okay, but not terribly hot. I had to send the first baked crab back because it... More

Our 3 family beach vacation group went tot Salt Water Cowboys last night and had a great time. Rather than wait for an indoor table to seat us all, we went and sat on the deck and watched the sunset over the marshland. Lee did a really good job with serving us and keeping our cold drinks coming. The shrimp... More

We spent a week in St Augustine. Ate out daily. Tried this place on recommendation of a shop keeper. Loved it. Food was delicious. Service was very good. Not 5 star dining, but just good food at fair price. Will definitely go again.
