“Gorgeous View - Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The bar on the water by the marina is a wonderful place to watch the sunset. The food has always been fresh.

“Do what your feel - relax or party!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My girlfriend and I had a very enjoyable experience at the Conch House. They have individual tiki huts for outside dinning that sit several feet above the waters edge, while some are a little farther inland for those who don't like being over water. They are a delight in the day time and very beautiful at night with the lights and tiki torches lit. But of course you want to know about the food and entertainment. Well the food was great. My fish tacos were very good however the first one tasted a little too salty initially. I also tried gator tail for the first time and, while I wouldn't get the taste confused with chicken, its texture and appearance does resemble chicken nuggets. Anyway it was very good also. And by the way they also have some live baby gators. So my girlfriend had a minorcan beef sandwich that was delicious. Only problem is she does not eat cheese and the menu did not indicate that the sandwich included melted cheese on top. Bottom line, the food and drinks were good and very fairly priced. The outside atmosphere of the individual tiki huts could not be better. And after eating we went out to the entertainment area located on the pier and had drinks, listened to the live music and watched people dance and let loose. I though the three bar tenders on the pier were ignoring us initially, as we seemed to somehow keep being overlooked even though the bar was not very busy. Anyway once we got our drinks we joined the crowd outside and just relaxed as we viewed the light house, the boats, the people, the beautiful lighting and carving of the wood pilings. The Conch House Restaurant and Marina Resort is a beautiful place and I highly recommend you stop by and enjoy yourself.

“Neat atmosphere, food ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We sat in one of the cabanas over the water and that was fun but the food was mediocre and the prices seemed high.

“Really great atmosphere - a little pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you are looking for a romantic dinner on the water this is IT. The outdoor seating has little private alcoves some of which are raised up in the air. The fried seafood platters were quite good but a little pricey. Our dinners were not served hot which was a dissapointment.

“Claim Chowder Cook Off!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It was a great afternoon! Plenty of competitiers, entertainment, additional food vendors in case you don't like chowder & beer flowing. It was a perfect afternoon for the entire family & many had their pooches along for the outing. We didn't actually eat in the restaurant, but line to get in was long...we will go back another time to try it. They have this cook off yearly we were told & it's always crowded. It's a must for a great fall afternoon outing!! Then a short ride over the bridge to old St. Augustine..
