My husband and I enjoyed our dinner this past weekend. The food, atmosphere, and view were all great. We enjoyed a walk on the pier afterwards. We will come back on our next visit.

Have to stop here, when in St Augustine - Vilano Beach. "Beaches" is my fav place for steamed clams w/butter & wine sauce. Hubby loved the fresh mahi & chicken wings were nice and crispy.
