This place has good food options and local food. I tried the fried green tomatoes and the pork belly which were excellent. They have a bar and cute outside area. The drinks are superb as well. Friendly staff the 2 times I went. I would...recommend giving it a try.More

I LOVE the vibes at the Floridian. It was so unique and weird inside. I loved that every section of the restaurant felt a little different. Our section was dark and moody—it seriously felt like a party basement from the 1970s 🤣🤣. Our food was...good and felt very fresh, and the server was attentive and friendly! We will be back!More

Drinks were great. We had everything from grilled cheese to the Southern Terrainian salad. Prices are reasonable and portions are huge. Excellent service and relaxed atmosphere. The dishes were creative with interesting ingredients.

Came here for vegan food and outdoor seating with our dog. Both were great and they brought water for our dog. Only a few vegan options but was very good.

Don't miss this restaurant! Alec, the manager, is a master at crafting cocktails. I had the best sangria of my life, and I lived in Spain! The food is amazing too...still dreaming of the shrimp and grits. They put a special touch on everything so...it's all unique. Reservations are a must!More

Absolutely loved this place! Quaint little restaurant surrounded by greenery that features unique, delicious dishes. We had the soup of the day, which was a fragrant curry, and each shared the Biscuit and Belly, FGT BLT, and the Bay of Pigs. All of it was...AMAZING! Our server Riley was great, and she was sweet enough to take a group pic of us.More

The entire place was a VIBE and the food was delicious. There are several photo opportunities and the wait staff (Riley) was super nice. Their take on a BLT was so good, I couldn't get enough! 10/10

We love this little restaurant in St. Augustine. It's a little off the 'main' area and quite quaint looking. We visited it in 2019 and had to try it again on this trip in May 2022. It didn't disappoint. We had and appetizer for an...entree a 3 dip( black bean, lemon garlic hummus and I added fish dip) and chip fare and a Fried Green Tomato BLT sandwich with chips. All were very tasty and it was hard to finish it all. One of our now fav places in St. Augustine.More

We made a reservation for dinner and were seated shortly after arriving. They have a patio, but we chose to eat inside. We started with the Fried Green Tomato appetizer, and it was awesome. Hubby had Blackened Flounder and Grits which he enjoyed. It was...a little soupier than he prefers, but the fish serving was a nice-sized portion, and the taste was good. I had the Shrimp Panzanella salad (on arugula) and it was delicious. This is a Tuscan dish that is not prevalent on non-Italian restaurants. Here they changed it up by using cornbread in place of the usual baguette or ciabatta. It was very fresh and the buttermilk-herb dressing seemed to be homemade. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for either lunch or dinner as their menus are very similar for each meal.More

The Floridian was our first stop upon arrival to St. Augustine. The weather was announcing a thunderstorm and we needed to find a place to eat while the oncoming storm passed. We arrived just in time to weather the storm and were blown away by...the excellent service, flavorful food and cozy atmosphere. Now, if I could only figure out the recipe for that wonderful Meatloaf sanwich...More

our lunch starter of hummus and bean dip with veggies and chips was excellent. My arugula salad with blackened fish was weird. It had a lot of cumin or paprika (or both) . Wife's salad was OK--chicken was a little dry but plentiful.

Funky, unique cafe with locally-sourced food. We had the shrimp and pickled veggie appetizer. Yum! The burger was great, and so was the Florida salad with grilled chicken. Couldn’t even tell that the brownie was gluten-free. Amazing! Fantastic service. We’ll definitely be going back!
