Right across from water. Fun spot to people watch and the food was great. Fried calamari was done just right and grilled tuna sandwich was perfect. Good selection of craft beers. I had a grapefruit ale. It was really good.

Typical bar food menu. Nothing jumped out at me off the menu but no complaints either. The view is amazing and worth a check.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. While it was rainy and cold outside, we didn't get to enjoy the outdoors or views, but we enjoyed our food. The mango bbq chicken was juicy and flavorful and the mango bbq shrimp grilled to perfection. The waitress was friendly and helpful. We had a great experience here and would recommend to others.

Stopped in for app and drink to get out of cold. Disappointed there were no gf offerings. In this day and age and such a popular place other than the old go to shrimp cocktail. C'mon. Let's get creative. Waitress good server but didn't quite know what is gf. Drinks were good though. Would just like to have dietary needs... More

A1A Ale Works is a great spot in downtown St. Augustine. On nights when it isn't freezing outside, the balcony is wonderful to sit -but inside is very nice as well. Even on a packed Saturday night, my family group (4 adults and 2 kids, 5 and 3) were comfortable and able to have great conversation at our table. It... More

Eat on the deck if the weather is nice. Very good view of the bay and downtown St. Augustine. The food is excellent. Good microbrewery. The grouper piccata is one of my favorites.

We went there about 2 years ago and were very impressed. Not so much this time. I can't remember what the prices were at our first visit, but this time they were surely too high for what we ordered. The portobello sandwich did not, in my opinion, have enough of the mushroom. It had plenty of the inexpensive items and... More

Decided to sit upstairs, as main floor was nearly full, with only one wait/bar person. Waitress was friendly and attentive. The shrimp cocktail was great, along with the salad. The fish tacos were served on hard & soft shell, which was different. We enjoyed the unusual fish tank too, with beautiful fish and a most interesting snowflake moray eel. Nice... More
