We always like to try new places, and this was a place we will certainly visit again. The service was great and the food was amazing! Both my husband and I ordered one of the daily specials, snapper, and it was perfect. It was incredibly fresh, and we were told it just came off the boat that day. We enjoyed both the food and the ambience including artwork by a local artist.

Almost hidden Gem
Blackfly open just over a year ago and while the crowd has picked up it is still a hidden gem when it comes to fresh, different from the same hum-drum 'seafood' restaurants. We have eaten over a half dozen times and are always extremely pleased and anticipate our next time into the restaurant.

We couln't get into Collage
We couln't get into Collage (which is owened by one of Blackfly owners) so we tried Blackfly and we were glad we did! Outstanding fresh fish. I had the whole fried snapper which was cooked to perfection. We also tried the Mahi and the jerked salmon. Everything was fresh and unique. We were learly because there were no reviews. I am putting this on my must-return list!

All that I expected
The food was excellent and very creative. It lived up to all the expectations based on the reviews we read. We will definitely be back and recommend to friends and family visiting St. Augustine.

While not the Collage it is
While not the Collage it is a great resturant. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves immensily. The owner, Mike Hyatt, treated us with above average courtesy and attention. Sorry about the spelling. A great time was had by all.

At the top of my list
Even though this restaurant is almost an hour away, it's still at the top of our "Most Favorites" List. It has so many things going for it, it's hard to single one thing out. The food is most excellent, and the chef doesn't let his ego get in the way of a fine meal. The wine cellar is superb, and the wait staff is attentive and courteous...and seamless.
Always a great experience. Tonight's visit, happened to be our 39th Wedding Anniversary...
Thanks Vaughn Cochran

Great spot for Seafood!
We had a great time. The Strawberry Salad and Conch soup were excellent. The only disappointment was that we ordered mahi mahi and they asked to substitute a different fish. The substitute just wasn't as good as mahi mahi.

Great foo with a Twist
I loved the food here. I had the Capellini with Lump Crab in a white wine cream sauce. The crab was huge chunks, there was a ton of it and the cream sauce was not heavy. It was very light. Also had the buffalo shrimp as an appetizer. Loved that. The shrimp was very lightly battered if at all, so it was not bready, all shrimp and the sauce was a cucumber yogurt sauce which complemented the Shrimp perfectly. My husband had the lobster mac and cheese which again was not heavy the way you would think and it had huge chunks of lobster. The only disappointment was my husband wanted the curry clams and they were out of it. They also have pizzas and small plates if you are not overly hungry. We will be back.

Small but lovely decor
You would pass by BlackFly going down such a busy street after crossing the Bridge of Lions in St. Augustine, but it is well worth stopping for a meal. The outside is unassuming, but the inside has a lovely, bright beach decor, attractive paintings on the wall and most importantly, great food. I had the crab cake salad appetizer which was delicious, not too rich and was a perfect size, followed by lobster pizza! My husband had the scallops on a bed of risotto and greens which were juicy and flavorful. I would definitely go again.

A nice evening
Food good very tasty and good portions but the menu was somewhat limited. Deserts were terrific. Price a little high but comparable to other places in St Augustine The only place I have seen Oban on the scotch list in this area That was a surprise !! Our friends were pleased and we will be back !!

All the food we ordered was
All the food we ordered was outstanding -- conch chowder, shrimp appetizer with cucumber dip, cobia special, pasta with smoked salmon pesto. Service was as good as it gets and the wine list was well priced. We will be back.

Fresh food plus music on Sat.!
First time here.. really liked the rosemary bread, hummus appetizer was great, and our fresh seafood dinners were nicely paired with fresh veggies. After dinner, we adjourned to the back of the restaurant, where they have a bar and music room. The 3-member acoustic guitar band was fantastic... Moody Blues, Gordon Lightfoot, anything that lends itself to good picking! Great evening!

Food quality and taste were
Food quality and taste were great. Service was very good.
Just a few things to consider. Skip the lobster add-on for $14 (same size a large shrimp!). Would also skip the crab cakes. While they are better than most the crab meat may be lump as stated on the menu it is not jumbo lump and therefore the crab cakes have a touch to much filler. Much better things on the menu. Counch chowder is done right!

Great food/service, as always
We had their mahi-mahi entree, delicious! Same for their conch fritters, unbeatable. Our waiter/service was impeccable. We've been to this restaurant several times and recommend it highly to our friends and colleagues. They even have a separate, adjacent dining area with a bar - good for groups.

It was terrific. The scallop
It was terrific. The scallop entree was the best I've eaten in St. Augustine and I'm a local. Love it.
