Our waiter Christian did a great job. Food was good but I did have one issue. I ordered the scallops grilled and asked if I could have roasted potatoes with them. Christian answered yes and when he brought my meal, I had scallops, roasted potatoes and rice. Seemed very odd to get two starches. Also, we ask to be seated on the patio which was lovely but when it got dark it was very difficult to see our food.

Food is always delicious. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. We go there all the time. Went on thanksgiving and sat outside, as we always do when we go there. It could have not been a better thanksgiving. Weather was perfect and the turkey dinner was delicious. Pussers is definitely our favorite place to go in Ponte Vedra. And happy hour is awesome!

Pusser's offers outdoor seating and a nice view of the lake (weather permitting). If eating inside, the booths are suitably distanced and all the staff are wearing masks. So, it is an especially good choice nowadays when everyone's concerns about virus transmission are heightened. Menu choices and prices are quite reasonable and happy hour drinks are very appealing, well made, and great value. Service was friendly and efficient.

Wonderful experience at Pussers. First time there and caught their terrific outdoor happy hour. Drink and app specials were great, especially the salmon cakes. The oysters were fresh, delicate and delicious, small Virginia Eastern Shore variety. Also purchased a bottle of their house brand Rum. Can’t wait to celebrate with it🎉
We’ll be back!!!

Service by Katie was excellent. Outdoor seating was a requirement for us, no indoor with Covid, and it worked well seating us along the railing. We had two young granddaughters with us and they loved Katie too. Our food selections covered a wide diverse types and all came well. Excellent venue. I looked for the manager to commend the place.

Staff were all very friendly. Food was good. However, one dinner (mutton snapper) had a pretty small portion. And the jerk chicken was a little dry and only 3 shrimp on the skewer seemed cinchy. Nice ambience.

It was good. We had a large group (8) and given all of the COVID measures, I would say they did a great job accommodating our group. The food is good, but not mind-blowing. Basic seafood and barfood type of place. Drinks are festive and fun.

I had a bowl of she crab soup and it was delicious. I also had grouper fish tacos which were also delicious. If I could give the food a 4.5, I would. The reason that I gave the food a 4 was because the she crab soup had pieces of crab shell in the soup. There was plenty of crab in the soup and it was well seasoned. The grouper tacos were done to perfection. The fish was flaky and not over done at all.

We ate out on the patio for purposes of Covid. Tables were well spaced apart and all wait staff wore masks. The food was very good as were the drinks from the bar. All in all, a very relaxing night spent with family.

Tuna poke was wonderful - fresh, as always, and a generous portion, seasoned perfectly. I was bit disappointed with the scallops with gruyere which was in a much too soupy sauce. Service was great and love the outdoor seating overlooking water.

Took the family to dinner. The nachos were okay. The chicken on it was very dry and sparse. The Fish and Chips was great, along with the Red Snapper special. My Cobb Salad with the Jerk Chicken was fair. The chicken again was very dry and was not real jerk chicken, but rather a processed product. Service was okay, but nothing special. We have had dinner there many times, this was just an okay night.

Seems like a fun place for drinks and apps, but the entrees are straight out of a Red Lobster. Skip dinner here and drive to any local seafood restaurant for higher craft cuisine.
