our experience with our server, Jason, was horrible. He was unprofessional, inexcusably non attentive and rude. He completely ignored us while other servers got our drinks then our food, we had to go to the bar ourselves to order another drink then had to go to the front desk to get our bill. All the while we could see him talking to the hostess, when we came up to get our bill he saw us and ducked in the kitchen. Unbelievable. We went there to celebrate our mother’s birthday and he ruined the evening. We were nothing but polite and kind to him when he first came to our table and we expected the same from him, didn’t get it.

Lobster avocado was excellent, the portobello hamburger was also very good. Service was very disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber, especially in PVB.

I really love Pussers; I think the food is great! It's always a little dark inside, so could maybe up the lighting, but still highly recommended. I've never had a bad meal here!

Overall disappointing experience. What used to be a favorite is just getting worse each time. I ordered fish and chips. Could not find the fish between all the batter and chips was cold. Asked for fresh chips and this arrived after I had finished rest of meal. Other items included crab dip - also cold, special of the day, which was good and kids order of pasta. Will not be going back soon.

If you are in the mood for a casual dinner with tasty offerings and a great happy hour, Pusser’s is a really good choice. We’ll be back with grandkids, too.

Have been to this restaurant numerous times over the yrs.-were very accomodating w/seating requests-server brought us drinks & bread & then disappeared for a bit-restaurant was not @ all busy either-had to ask the receptionist/greeter to get her for us to take our food orders-our server was very friendly though & did refill drinks-food was delivered pretty promptly & was good-noticed that the menu prices had gone up since our last visit. Our one friend really likes this restaurant, so we may go back if she wants to.

Enjoyed dining on the outdoor patio on a beautiful evening. Great martini and delicious dinner. Service was excellent - everything delivered in good time. Server was attentive, but not overbearing. Very nice evening, as usual

It was our anniversary and I felt like our table got ignored. We ordered 2 drinks and apps right when we got there because it took awhile for someone to come to our table. We finished our cocktails (mojitos were horrible), water and apps before the server even returned to see if we wanted to order. By then we were ready to leave because who knows when we would have gotten our meal. We paid cash since it took awhile for server to return and went next door to Ruth Chris. We had to finish our meal and get dessert for our special night there.

We recently celebrated a birthday at Pusser's. They were very accommodating. We were a party of 15, the waitress was moving very slow but we were understanding. A bunch of people in our party were drinking and the drinks were coming slowly (apparently a problem where a bartender called out? not sure) Anyways, we waited a long time for appetizers but even longer for the meal. When the meal finally came out two members of the party didn't have their dish. The waitress took responsibility and said it was her fault. At this point we were pretty much done eating and had already spent 3 hours there. The two guests decided to go home hungry. I am not sure if she was new. If she was new, she should not of been handling such a big party. I understand things happen and restaurants get busy but I thought the manager should of came over and apologized. I thought we deserved an apology and explanation. We will never be back. The other party members well never come back and I will be sure to let others know about my bad experience. There are plenty of other restaurants in the Ponte Vedra area that would appreciate my business.

Thanks, Jason for excellent service. The firecracker shrimp and lobster avocado were great. As we discussed the lobster roll should NEVER be full of raw red onions! Otherwise it was full of sweet lobster meat and I am looking forward to the new onion-less version.

Surf and Turf ad was very misleading. You could put all lobster meat on one fork full. Poor presentation of filet mignon.

We ordered the surf and turf special. It was not up to the usual standard that we have had in the past. There were just little pieces of lobster, not a tail, and the steak was smaller and cooked over done. We were very disappointed, as we usually get very good food here. The server was excellent but not the food.

Ordered nachos for table and had to ask for small plates to share. Main courses took a long time to arrive and weren’t as hot as they should be. Same waiter was covering inside and outside tables, so that’s on Management.

It was very good. We had appetizers of Nachos, large portion, the cheese on top was not melted enough it was hard to get a nacho without a large portion of the hard cheese & some of the chips were burned. We also had Lomi lomi shrimp with pita chips. They were very good. My drink was called Lava a frozen alcoholic beverage had really no flavor. It was like a pina colada with strawberry syrup on top. Not good. The maraschino cherry on top had a pit in it so be aware. Everyone enjoyed the entrees with everyone getting something different. The kids enjoyed the outdoor pond with turtles & fish. Our server was very friendly. All in all an enjoyable dinner & pricing was good. We will definitely return.

Had a good dinner sitting outside where a nice breeze was blowing. Had the special, filet and lobster. The filet was cooked just right but it was short on lobster. Potatoes were overdone but asparagus was tasty. Always enjoy the Painkillers, only had a 2. Last year there was a special of steak and lobster and you got a tail. This year it was more like a bite. Coming again with 10 people in two weeks but will order something other than the special.
