Great service! Seated quickly and server was attentive and described specials before we ordered. Tea is great! Food was hot and well prepared, although the lunch portions are fairly small. New menu with good sides. Chowder is wonderful. However, they did away with the seafood egg rolls which were wonderful and unique to the area. Good local place and quality... More

If you are looking for good seafood, this is the place. It's within walking distance to downtown St. Augustine.

Based on my friends recommendation (she lives in St Augustine), we stopped in for lunch. Had the fried shrimp plate with sides of mac n cheese and collards. Generous portions.

The only reason this place didn't get 5 stars is because my order was wrong and so was the table beside us. This is the cutest place. Its like eating in a ship. The food was delicious. And the waitress was busy but attentive. I didn't have the heart to tell her my side dishes were wrong. :) Definitely a... More

What a great find. Prices are reasonable and food was well prepared. I had Cobia which was the special. I appreciated local seafood and it was cooked to perfection. You get 2 sides plus hush puppies

This restaurant has the best New England Clam Chowder we have ever eaten! It has a limited menu but the fish, esp the shrimp, is well prepared. Environment is clean and busy. Their washroom could use updating.

Easy to find. This was our second visit since moving here, and the second visit was as good as the first. Wait staff was friendly and patient. Delivery of appetizers and entrees were timed well. Portions were beyond sufficient and prepared to perfection. Place was busy the whole time we were there. Parking is best described "as a little quirky".

My wife and I visited this restaurant with friends after visiting the Art Show and had a great meal. We had Mahi sandwiches, Shrimp, French Fries and Salads all of which were very good. The service was a little slow, but OK. The wait staff were very nice and courteous. Overall, a good choice for lunch.
