The fried green tomatoes and meatballs were amazing! There's something for everyone on the menu and we had a great time. Love eating local too. We will be back on our next weekend trip to St. A.

We're glad you found the food good but are concerned to hear about your experience with our hospitality and service pace, especially since it doesn’t align with our standards. To help us improve, could you please share the name on your reservation, who your server was, and if any issues were discussed with a manager? This information is crucial for us to address and ensure it doesn't happen again. We’re committed to excellence and appreciate your help in reaching that goal.

    Fun little place and the food was very good. Eden suggested the Pomegranate Martini and it was great! My mussels were delicious, but on the salty side. My husband had the shrimp and grits. It's the best he has ever had. I tasted it and if we are back in St Augustine, I would order that dish. Eden was wonderful and attentive. We would ask for her service again if she still works there.

    Drink the So Fetch. It’s a house made shrub. You can skip the Forgotten Tonic but it was pretty ok. The Pedro is disgustingly sweet. Our food tasted fresh and chef forward. The ambiance can’t be beat. Ashley was our server and great at her job. Plenty of clearly labeled gf and vegan options. We will definitely be back.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and for the shout-out to the So Fetch with its house-made shrub! It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed the fresh, chef-forward food and found our ambiance unbeatable. Ashley will be thrilled to know her service contributed positively to your visit. We take note of your feedback on the Forgotten Tonic and The Pedro; tastes vary widely, and we're always looking for ways to refine our cocktail offerings. Your insights are invaluable in this process. Looking forward to welcoming you back for another visit where hopefully every cocktail and dish will be to your liking. See you soon!

    We lucked out with perfect weather and an outside table. Service was spot on! Very attentive but not hovering. We started with bruschetta and olives. Delicious! Split a Cesar salad. I had the fried green tomato blt and hubby had fish sandwich. I dont think you can go wrong ordering anything there! Make a reservation and enjoy!

    Cozy tavern type place with great food and service. I had a signature cocktail which was just what I wanted. For entrees, we had shrimp and grits and the grilled chicken sandwich, both fantastic! And our server Phoebe was very attentive and pleasant.
