Sit at outdoor picnic tables with umbrellas, watch the 4x4's drive onto the beach as well as pedestrians with their beach gear. This restaurant is situated immediately next to the dunes with relaxed beach dining at its best. We enjoyed a turkey-avocado wrap with a side of beans/rice plus an iceberg wedge salad with grilled turkey. Both portions were ample.... More

After reading some of the most recent reviews we were not sure what to expect. Beachcomber is definitely a beach restaurant. There are only a few tables inside, most are outside on the deck. We sat inside (thunderstorm brewing outside). They have the usual beach bar beers on draft plus a couple of good ones (Sweetwater 420) and a decent... More

I stopped in for beer after a long day on the beach, i was blown away by the creative menu. I had to try the Baja fish tacos which were delicious! Will definately be back next year!

Food was average to good. Atmosphere was more like a beach bar than a restaurant. This particular day there was more wind than desired and a storm on its way in the distance.

Scallops were terrible. Bitter tasted bad. They took them back brought a fish sandwich partly cooked. Sorry no 4 star restaurant there.

I am very sorry to hear about your experience at Beachcomber. We have made recent changes to our menu which include switching from frozen to fresh seafood, and I can assure you that the scallops you received were delivered that day from the most reputable local seafood shop. We served several orders of scallops that day with no other complaints.... More

Everything was great... especially the coleslaw. Nice and vinegary (is that a word)? They only serve beer and wine but that's okay. If ordering the wings I would ask for them well done

I don't know... this place has always been on our "must do" list when we come to St. Augustine. We stop and eat right before driving out onto the beach. I always get the fish tacos... mainly because nothing else looks like something I'm dying to have and a burger feels to heavy to eat right before heading out on... More

I heard there was a new owner of Beachcombers, so I decided to try it again. Much improved. First off, when you have an on the beach location, it's probably easy to take advantage of that and let other things slide because people will come just for the location. It's a huge plus when you can go for the location... More

What can you say but, they're right on the beach. Love their gator tail as they are flat pieces and not the tough and chewy chunks. We go 3-4 times the week we vacation there. Miss the breakfast every day, but the new owners are still doing weekends and that's great. Really gotta try the gator!!!!

Right by the beach and has great food. I love the fish sandwich. You can eat and walk on the beach afterwards. It is a neat place.
