“Great lunch on Saturday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

The lunch today, Saturday noon, was excellent. We had their award winning Conch chowder ($6 bowl) and it was very good as expected. We had their shrimp/artichoke bake with hot chips appetizer and it was fantastic. I usually don't care for these kind of appetizers, but this one was worth the modest $9 cost.

“Been there twice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

We just returned from lunch at the Conch House for the second time, the first being a year or so ago. I had to have the same thing: It was their Chicken Salad wrap. This time my husband got his own instead of eating mine like he did the last time. It was fantastic! Love their smoothies too. It was well worth the price and we are still so full we didn't even eat dinner. They serve it with homemade potato chips and they are yummy! Great atmosphere sitting outside event though they have no control over the begging sea gulls.

“Sleeping Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

The food has taken a hit... The server great grandson of orig. owner. Boy, talk about rolling over in a grave. I think he would come back and kick some booty... The atmosphere is still awesom over looking the marina, with bambo huts and the works.

“Not worth all the hype!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

I visited the restaurant on Nov 22nd. The entrées and drinks were mediocre. We did enjoy the appetizer. I never had conch before and the way it was prepared was great.

We also sat outside. That was definitely a mistake because they put us across from a chain smoker. Neither of us smoke and having to smell that the majority of the time was awful!

“Stay for a drink, leave for better food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

The atmosphere is incredible, beautiful tiki huts and a relaxed bar with music down on the dock. We had drinks on the dock followed by lunch in the restaurant. It was raining so we were not lucky enough to enjoy one of there tiki huts. The food was bland and average. The only way to explain the food was it's wasn't good but wasn't bad. I would definitely return for a drink, but with all the wonderful options St. Agustine has to offer, we will be skipping there mediocre food.
