We decided to try this place for lunch. Drove here from st augustine, and entered the restaurant. Not a hostess or person in sight, to greet customers. My husband walked to kitchen area where he was greeted by a waiter who totally blew us off and told my husband we could sit in the bar. The place was virtually empty.... More

This is a nice place, friendly, comfortable. First time visit. Food & wines were delicious. Waiters & waitresses were there before you realized you needed them. Wish they were closer to our side of the river. We have to get a Motel 'cause we don't drink & drive & i't probably 20 miles from home. Fun, tho & we'll do... More

We recently had a a dinner at North Beach Bistro, and I was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant is divided into 2 parts - the quiet room on the right and the loud and fun on the left, with a bar, live music and people having fun. So, depending on what you need - a quiet atmosphere or fun place,... More

My friend and I walked into this restaurant for lunch and found only one table occupied. We almost turned around and left, but asked the folks how they liked the food. Their response made us stay and we were quite pleased. We shared a bang bang shrimp appetizer that was delicious. I then had a wedge salad with wonderful blue... More

We went for brunch. So maybe dinner or lunch is better. But the omlets were awful. No flavor. Mushrooms and tomato were diced so small and so little you could not taste anything. Even the cheese had no taste. And the omlet was greasy. As were the hash browns. And they were mushy. Could not eat these at all. My... More

We loved the quietness inside and that you can see the chefs in the kitchen cooking the food. I had the fish and chips and the fish was very flaky and delicate. My husband had the shepherds pie and he said he wouldn't recommend it. It was spicy and had a different taste than most he has eaten. The chef... More

We arrived just as they opened for lunch Saturday. The bar/ lunch area of course was empty but after 15 min. 3 other tables arrived. We ordered the fish and chips (cooked perfectly) and the beef sliders (also very good). The chef hand makes the fries to order and his condiments/ sauces are made from scratch... Including the ketchup. As... More

The food here was superb in terms of the flavors, preparation, and unique pairing of flavors. Service was very pleasant and attentive. The fried green tomatoes were described as "lightly breaded." I would call them heavily breaded. In terms of size, this appetizer is too much for one person (if you are getting a main dish). That should be made... More
