“Poor Service Has Ruined It Twice”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The first time we went for dinner, the food was great. However, the front of the house is staffed with apathetic children who don't seem to care that their restaurant is full. Slow is one thing - we don't mind a relaxed atmosphere - but our server forgot our drinks, then brought one of our entrees out 10 minutes before the second one. In total, she may have been to our table 3 or 4 times the entire night, and was never apologetic or trying to make it better in any way. This past Sunday afternoon, we thought we'd give it another shot - unfortunately we sat at our table for 20 minutes without ever seeing a server. After 10 we asked the hostess, but it didn't help, so we left.

“What a Great Place”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I chose this place after reading a few of the other visitors reviews. What a great place, the atmosphere was great, the staff, very friendly and competent, and the food, outstanding. My wife had the fried shrimp platter, and I, the short ribs. If everything else on the menu is this good, you can't go wrong choosing this place.

Our new favorite place to fine when visiting St Augustine

“AN AMAZING TREASURE ON ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH!!!!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Our first time there and we are already looking forward to returning. The food was amazing the house chips appetizer was outrageous. The braised short ribs dinner melted in your mouth and the flavors in the,shrimp risotto were outstanding. We enjoyed our experience so much we returned the next morning for Sunday brunch. Our server Savannah was a sweetheart and we loved Ali the hostess.... Can't wait to return!!!!

“To Each ..Their Own”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

I have really enjoyed Coquina Beach every time I've been there .. and that is my opinion Happy hour is a bargain for the beach with reduced drink prices and reduced prices on selected apps. Want something to do on a Sunday afternoon? Head to Coquina Beach for the "Oyster Roast" (actually steamed) an awesome way to enjoy this local delicacy with an all you can eat price of $22. The AUCE price included a great Rock shrimp Chowder, best fried Onion rings on the Beach and homemade cornbread! Chris (the owner) has it going on and he is their to please! A really GREAT place to wine and dine and drop the whine.

I visit this restaurant on a regular basis. The food is excellent as is the service. The restaurant is very attractive and clean. Specials are offered daily with lots of new items added on a regular basis.
