Have stayed away for 2years due to poor service. The food was good. Had the Grouper Ponte Vedra, she crab soup and the crab dip. All were good. The nagging issue is that the management can’t seem to staff properly so that the serves are not spread too thin. Our server had a quickly drop off drinks and food items. Never time to have a conversation. Never time for a single refill on water.
It’s too bad as this could be a very nice restaurant with a positive experience.

Food was great but chose a table outside...no lights. We could not read the menu without the flashlight on our phone. The weather was so nice. It would be awesome with lights on the umbrellas or candles so you can see your food.

We got together to celebrate friends birthdays. Our service was good . Our lunch was very good and with a coupon we received in the mail, it became a great value. We go here when we want a venue where we can hear each other talk and enjoy good food.

Overpriced mediocre food in an outdated atmosphere. Unappealing drink offers. Felt more like a mall restaurant than an upscale one. The complementary valet parking was a positive touch, and the wait staff was pleasant.

We had a very nice dinner for 13 on a Friday night. The reservation was for 12 but at the last minute we had one more join our group and Pusser’s accommodated us without any problems. Several of our diners had never been there for dinner and were very pleased with their dinner choices of shrimp and grits and a steak. It was nice to be able to enjoy happy hour drinks in the bar while waiting for our table. Everyone was able to get separate checks. It was a very enjoyable dinner had by all.

They have a great happy hour M-F 3 to 6pm. Good HH apps and drinks. Tuesdays I like the Ahi Tuna Poke dish. After that I get the fish tacos off the menu. Goes great with local craft draft beers.

Went for the Wednesday oyster special.
The oysters were small but very good. The ladies also had a cup of she crab soup which they raved about. Stetson did a great job scheduling the food.

Miso salmon knocked it out of the park! Sticky rice was delish. Only miss was the mushy zuchini in the mixed veggies. Grouper Ponte Vedra was excellent! Our server Clay was helpful & attentive. Will return.

Not happy about the fact that neither open table or Pussers didn’t bother to post that there was a set menu and price for New Year’s Eve. Not sure how good of an idea it was since it wasn’t very busy there. Food was good but not for the $53 a person price. That didn’t even include any liquor.

We used to LOVE Pusser’s and would take all out of town visitors but that will stop abruptly. We took our dearest family there on Christmas Eve and though the service was passable. The food was erratic at best. My favorite shrimp and grits was to put it mildly disgusting. The grits were watery and both the shrimp and whatever they say.....(Pieces of ham maybe) were pure rubber. Really bad I would have sent it back but it took so long to get our meals I was afraid we’d miss our Christmas celebration at home. We spent well over 150$ for 4 adults. Thankfully I had a Bloody Mary to numb the awful meal that followed.

Not very good...could taste the industrial cleanser that they use on the food. Brought my dish without the lump crab meat so had to ask for it.

Waiter (she) nice enough but not very attentive.

Prices do not support food or the service.

We have been to Pussers in Road Town, and Sopers Hole in Tortola many times and this Pussers was just as good. I had a great Cuban sandwich!! Wish they had the conch chowder like the ones in Tortola but that was OK. The pain killers were wonderful and the staff is as nice as any place we have been! Would go back anytime we are in the area.

We had guests from Australia and all they wanted was to eat seafood. It was the son's birthday and he was so happy about the brownie dessert treat! The seafood was fabulous and she could not stop talking about the fabulous large oysters and how affordable it was. A good dining experience every time!

My friend and I enjoyed a tasty meal, well prepared with generous portions. We had a window seat. The ambiance was quite pleasant with fresh poinsettias all around. The waiter was very pleasant and attentive. It was quiet enough that we could talk across the table from each other without having to raise our voices to be heard. I would definitely go again.

We were a party of four plus a toddler celebrating a milestone birthday. The food, service, ambiance, view, everything couldn't have been better. We had a wonderful time.....and were treated to an amazing brownie and ice cream dessert for the birthday. Love Pusser's! Definitely recommend it to all! Can't wait for a return visit!

Pusser's was having a mixed grill special for $18.95. I got the hanger steak with shrimp and my wife got the hanger steak with salmon. The dinners came with house or Caesar salad, garlic mashed potatoes, and mixed veggies. Great deal on good food. Our server Drew made the evening a pleasant experience.

Thankgiving dinner had 4:30pm seating. Restaurant not crowded. Seated upon arrival. Told restaurant ran out of ham. Had to ask for bread multiple times. Told ran out of dinner rolls. Finally brought French Bread to table after 45 minutes. Ordered drinks upon arrival and not asked about refills until bread was brought to table(45 minutes). Error on check...charged for 4 Thanksgiving dinners (Ordered 3).

Thanksgiving dinner at Pusser’s. If you like cafeteria food this is the place. Looking across at Ruth’s Chris just reminded me how bad this was. Like warm food, dried out turkey, flavorless Leek and potato soup, and stuffing put on the plate with a scoop. First time and last eating here. Good place to have a drink outside, not so much for dinner.

We had Thanksgiving Dinner for all 11 members of our family. They had a Thanksgiving menu which was very traditional ham and turkey. However only 3 people ordered off this menu and everyone else ordered different foods. All the food was delicious. I highly recommend.

This place is good old fashion fun with tasty dishes from the coast and tropics. Good food, good service, lively outdoor scene.

Their happy hour features a different menu item daily at a great price. Try their Firecracker Shrimp, Lobster Roll, Mixed Grill and their Salmon.

We took my in-laws and sister in-law there after just getting back into town. It was the last night for the special (steak and lobster). To our disappointment, we were told they didn't have any more to serve us. My husband and I had been there previously with our neighbors for that special. We were so glad that the special had been extended for the month of October.
Last January, we were in Annapolis, Maryland, and enjoyed having that same special at Pusser's. Why extend the special if you aren't going to be able to serve it the last night of the special.
Several of us ended up having the Firecracker shrimp. The shrimp was very good.
