Decent Place For Real Drinks With Real Liquor Near the Beach

We ended up at Dune's after going to two other places close to the beach that only offered wine margaritas because they don't have a liquor license. This seems to be normal in this area, but we wanted the real stuff. The first night we arrived, we wanted to have a couple of drinks and order... read more

Could not decide where to eat and ended up at the Dune's. It was virtually empty while we were there. The building is beautiful and seems to have been kept in its original state as much as possible. There was only one waitress the night we ate and she was very nice and conscientious but you could tell she was... More

I really don't know what people are looking for when they write these reviews. I came here with some trepidation given the status of reviews this restaurant had already received. I ordered the $8 cheeseburger and got an $8 cheeseburger. The place is kind of fun inside. The service was fine. It appeared clean. Not the greatest restaurant experience I've... More

I've had the pleasure of going to Dune's Cracker House on a few occasions. They play games on certain days during the week during happy hour. I played Bingo with a packed house of retirees. The crowd was friendly and in great spirits. If you win, you can pick a prize. Along with the great prices on drinks, it is... More

This is a place that seems like it was probably the place to be 15 years ago. Our first hint should have been that it was virtually empty on a Friday night. We ate here for dinner, and it was just one disappointment after another. The menu is fairly limited and difficult to read. The drinks were all flat and... More

We had the Friday night prime rib again. Excellent ,perfect medium rare. I couldn't eat it all. Most everyone ordered the prime rib except one person. He ordered the fired scrimp which surprised me as almost every restaurant has fried scrimp. The scrimp had the lightest batter. I sampled a few and they were wonderful. Scrimp next time although the... More

We had a nice experience last year here for St Patty's so tried again in 2015. Bad choice. First, for some reason, certain eateries have no clue how to cut brisket/corned beef properly and this is one of them. They think the stringy long grain (lazy way) is the way to serve. You get a tough and barely chewable meal.... More

Our first day arriving at St Augustine Beach, we attempted two "trendy" restaurants to be told it was a 45+ minute wait. No thank you!! We drove down the road and stumbled upon this quaint place. It certainly had character. We were looking for a QUIET place to enjoy some dinner without waiting. We got exactly that. We sat out... More

My sister and I have just moved to the area and decided this lil rustic charm building needed our patronage. I called The Dunes this evening and the female on phone was un-descriptive and simply told me it was "happy hour". I asked about a hamburger special posted outside....again limited information was given my staff. Well we decided to go... More

All the food was obviously frozen. The soft drinks were flat and the ran out of baked potatos at 630 pm. When i asked to substitute a salad in place of the potato they were out of they wanted to charge me two extra dollars. This place sucked. Please dont go there.
