    We waited more than a half hour for our entrees after ordering and were told the kitchen was running slow. This was after getting only three dozen oysters instead of the four dozen that had been ordered. We never received the soda our grandson had ordered and the waitress couldn't be found. My husband paid the bill before noticing the soda had been included on it

    Large bar upstairs overlooks the lake. Tiki torches were a nice touch. Two man band was awful!! We would have stayed after dinner but the music was so bad we left. Inside dining had romantic booth atmosphere and nice lake view. Food was just okay- old school- grouper Ponte Vedra was bland and could have used more seasoning. Menu seemed old school and could use updating. Worth a try though. Hopefully you'll catch a night with better live music upstairs!

    We enjoyed a very nice lunch here with our grandson. The food was delicious, both for us and for him. Our waitress was excellent and checked on us frequently, filling our glasses and asking if there was anything else that we needed. My lobster roll was delicious! We will definitely return to try some other items.

    We had the surf and turf special. the lobster tail was very good. However, the filet was not cooked as ordered and the quality was not as expected. We have dined at Pussers several times. It has generally been good and is the reason of our return. The service was excellent.

    Decided last minute to make our engagement dinner reservations at Pusser's. The table was set with waters and ready for the group. Our waitress was on point and very positive/friendly! The appetizers were killer and the drinks were phenomenal! Though Pusser's is more in the "upscale" category of restaurants the prices do not scare away at all! For the quality of food and drink you receive, you would expect to pay much more! Pusser's is truly a gem of PV and we will be returning very shortly! Thank you for making our engagement night a spectacular experience!

    My husband and I went for brunch on Father's Day. Although the menu is limited for brunch, the pricing is reasonable. The baked oysters appetizer was really tasty. The seafood omelet and crab cakes Benedict were both delicious. The restaurant did offer their regular menu also. We will definitely go back again for dinner.

    Service fair. Food poor. Cocktails ordered - 1st came out rather quickly while the second came 5 minutes later (and it was incorrect). Crab dip was luke warm at best and the chips tasted stale. A female patron sitting next to us talked non stop and sounded as if she was speaking to someone sitting on the other side of the restaurant. We left after cockktails and our appetizers. We had dinner at another restaurant in the area.

  • Not the greatest choice
    Maddiesean
    Dined on 5/15/2014
    This seemed like a good choice given other reviews we read and location, but the food was not too great. We shared crab dip which had almost no flavor and came out with colored tortilla chips that appeared to be heavy on food dye, and soft white bread slices. The shepherds pie had a very strong but unusual flavor (maybe rosemary) and we both agreed it wasn't good. The salad with grilled pineapple came out with what appeared to be pineapple tidbits from a can, no grill marks for sure, and a handful of cashews on greens. The dressing was tasteless and skimpy. The barbecued salmon ordered on top was decent. Service was very good, but not enough to make a second try worthwhile.

    Our server Jessie did a great job on a very busy - crazy - night after the Players' Championship. What a good natured, energetic and responsive person she is! Food was good as usual and served fairly quickly despite the number of patrons. Boisterous crowd that night in the bar and restaurant, but all went very well.

    Food was good,.....in and out in a short time! Very loud due to all the patrons from the TPC @ Sawgrass. Drinks were ok, not very big martini selection. We would probably go back as it is a good HOT SPOT. If u are looking for a lively crowd this is the place to be! I rate it about 7 on a scale of 1-10!

    Well it was our first time at Pusser's, nice restaurant but very crowded for the PGA Tour tonight. The food for myself was good, I had Shrimp and Chicken, but my wife was disappointed because a "new special" menu was inplace for the Tournament to help speed the kitchen along. Due to the special menu the normal Shepherd's Pie that this restaurant is renowned for was not offered. I also found the restaurant very crowded and I witnessed at least one very drunk PGA player fall on the outdoor patio. I found the restaurant, crowded and slower in service than I had originally anticipated. My food was good and consisted of chicken and shrimp and my wife settled for Chicken since the restaurant had changed their menu for the Tournament Players.

    I stepped into the ladies room and used a stall after a Pusser's employee. She left no toilet paper. When I came out of the stall, there were 2 other employees in the ladies room. There were used hand towels spread across the counter and neither one noticed, much less cleaned it up. 3 employees used the ladies room without taking 6 seconds to straighten it? That says something about the kids running the place.

    It really is a nice restaurant with awesome upstairs and downstairs patio seating. Not a place for a foodie. Would stick with the basics because the entrees just aren't worth what you're going to pay. If you want to sit outside on a nice afternoon/evening and have a couple drinks and maybe a sandwich or fish tacos go for it. By the way, our service was excellent (wish I could remember our server's name; she was great).

    While visiting Saint Augustine over Easter weekend we searched online for a Sunday brunch. Now to be fair, we did initially choose Pusser's because that is one of the nicknames of our pet cats (you can read about the actual meaning of the name on Pusser's menu). Well, brunch was so great we returned the following Tuesday night for the steak and lobster special and that was fantastic also. What I thought was going to be a budget cut filet mignon meant for a loss leader Tuesday night special turned out to be one of the better prepared cuts of beef that I have had in awhile. The special even came with a salad, grilled vegetables and a scoop of mash potatoes. Pusser's will now always be a stop during our Saint Augustine vacations.

    My fiancé & I ate here for valentines day & were very disappointed at the service & the time it took to receive our meals.Our total dining time was 1.5 to 2 hours.Twice as long as it should take. We decided to give it a 2nd chance,& we were not too impressed.The brunch menu was small but had a few plates that looked good.I ordered eggs Benedict & 1 of my eggs was thoroughly cooked!The waitress didn't pay us much attention so by the time I saw how well done my egg was cooked,it was pointless to let her know.No management even made an appearance in the dining room.It appears that the wait staff is a youn crowd,&the management isnt sure what is going on either.The food tasted ok,but you'll wait forever for it, &even longer if you send it back.

    Brunch selections were very good. The wait time in receiving our orders was quite long - almost 1 hour. Not sure if our particular wait staff had too many tables, but we noticed other tables being served before us and were finished and out the door shortly after we were served. It was a busy Easter Sunday brunch day, but our section seemed to be having longer than normal wait times.

    The atmosphere is very nice, and the ambience is wonderful. Unfortunately the grouper special that night was a little dried out, but still seasoned tasty. I usually order the Salmon tower which is excellent. The place is not too loud, so it's nice to be able to hear the person you're with. Decorations are very nice and the outdoor scenic view of the lake is very beautiful.

    We were seated and ignored. Others who came in after us were served. When a waiter finally did come to the table, after we asked for service, the server was not very attentive. The waiter would disappear for long periods of time. Overall, we have generally had good experiences at this restaurant in the past, but this time it definately failed to meet our expectations.

    We had a group of 6 women gather for the first time. We asked to be outside at first, but it was too cold and it doesn't have provisions for heaters or cover, so we went inside. It is very noisy in there and not as good as we thought for talking, but we managed. It is meant to be that way, I believe and adds to the fun atmosphere. We had great service, but the waiter forgot to give us separate checks and that became an issue. All and all, it ended fine and everyone was happy. He worked hard for just appetizers and drinks, so we liked him a lot.
