Decent food and decent price. The hostesses were not friendly and the bus boys were just standing around talking instead of doing their job. Hostess had to ask them to down a table. No social distancing between tables. Nice atmosphere and decor
My fiancé and our puppy Gus came in tonight for dinner and were very impressed with everything! Tasty food, great drinks, and more impressive the service from Cali topped off our visit. She was attentive, welcoming, and extremely respective of COVID rules and protocols. We...will be returning during our December stay on Amelia Island, and if all servers are the same caliber as Cali, we will definitely have a great time. Thank you Salt Life Team and Cali!More
My hubby and I ate here for lunch while visiting the beach. I ordered the fried grouper basket! Omgoodness it was delicious. The drinks were also good. They have a very nice menu of items and plenty of seating to be socially distant from others....Food is priced with a medium price tag and came out pretty quickly after ordering. You can also sit upstairs in the open balcony area.More
Our 2nd time here!
We love this place, upstairs by the street just cool.
Really enjoy the apps and meals, drinks and service- quick friendly and whatever you need!
Just very laid back and enjoyable!
This is now a destination every time we come to...St. Augustine Beach!

Hubby and I went out for our final date night before our baby’s due date and it was such a great time! As always, the food was delicious, the place was clean, the live music sounded great, and the overall service was wonderful! Our waitress,...Tiffany, was so friendly and attentive — she made sure we had everything we needed to fully enjoy our time!More
Great evening meal here tonight, we came here last year and this is our first time back...
The ambiance is amazing with the live music. My wife wanted a non alcoholic cocktail that wasn’t on the menu the waitress was lovely helping her.
We had...the crab dip with chips and then I had a Poke bowl which was incredibly fresh and she had the shrimp and lobster pasta which was jam packed!
A great meal and we will definitely be back!More
Salt Life is a busy and fun place. I really dig the open air vibe and beachy style.
They have some solid sushi choices and they are hard to resist on bargain Tuesday nights from 4 -6:30 p.m.
My fave used to be the Rockin...Lobster Roll... now it is the crab roll.More
It was not what we expected, greet us poorly, beverage a long time to be serve, the lemonade was really bad tasting, like old. The menu offer plantains, but they were burn and raw in the inside, yellow bananas. Food was poorly cook and dry....bloody mary no pickle! Very Expensive like we pay for the "Salty life" logo. I would not recommend this restaurant. I am very disappointed.More
