Spent 25 mins looking for parking. Finally parked 4 blocks away in metered parking in the rain after having dropped my family at the door. Service was painfully slow, food was average, drinks were good. Cool atmosphere. If you're not staying within walking distance of restaurant, I'd say it's really not worth the parking headache.

Hubby had a brisket sandwich and I had a chicken sandwich and when we both took our first bite our eyes rolled back in our head... More

Very nice restaurant with bar on street level and family dining with outdoor balcony next level up. Food was very good. Seafood tacos were great. Companions had the shrimp linguine,which they said was wonderful. They have good drink specials too and the atmosphere is like Melvilles from Cheers.

Excellent food. I wS having dinner with a party of 8. They set us in a booth, which was crowded, but doable. Wish they had put tables together instead. It made for awkward conversations. Best cheese soup, which I love and get every time I go.

We decided to try the A1A Ale Works for lunch and we liked it so much that we went back for dinner. Initially, we went there because it was conveniently located right in the heart of St Augustine, but we found it to have great food and excellent service. For dinner, our son really wanted to have pasta Alfredo with... More

We stop in here every time we are in St Augustine. The beer selection they have was great. I had mixed drinks and they were also great. M-F they do a happy hour that is unbelievable. Seems just about anything is $5. I had Grey Goose vodka on the rocks, a substantial pour for only $5. I was a happy... More

Didn't dine too much, but visited the bar for the local ales, and had lunch here. Welcome was excellent, service good and food tasty. Beer was amazing, aswere the margaritas. Location ideal for anyone visiting the city
