“Very disappointed the one time we went”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

This probably was a nice place at one time but the food and service the one time we went left a lot to be desired and the prices were too high for what we got.

Complaing staff....fighting waitresses. Witnessed employee employer spat over no paycheck. Obvious that food on menu doesnt match actual product. Martini bar only...dont eat here

“Prices High / Quality Low / Service Slow”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

The title of this review pretty much sums it up - the prices were high, the food was greasy and/or dry and the service was extremely slow and a bit erratic. All 3 fish entrees were in the $24 - $26 range, and came with a side salad and a vegetable and potato or rice. However the portions were small and the fish didn't seem fresh and lacked taste. Only the vegetables seemed fresh and tasted good, so we weren't even tempted to get dessert. The restaurant is outside St. Augustine proper so it doesn't even have a good location in its favor. Overall it was not a good dining experience. This was during the week so maybe we got the "C" team and it could be better on the weekend ..... but somehow I doubt it.
