St. Augustine - need some updated info please

  • 7

I have looked at the discussions and it looks like most everything is several years old. Has anyone had any recent experience with restaurants in St. Augustine? We have a well behaved 10 year old, so we're not really looking for fancy. Last time we were there, we loved Columbia. Casual is good, but upscale casual is fine too. Any suggestions, anyone? I have my eye on Columbia, A1A Ale House, O'Steen's, and maybe Cap's on the Water. Am I on the right track?

      What have you eaten at the Floridian that you would recommend?

      1. re: susantrader

        Fried green tomato bruschetta, cornbread panzanella,
        shrimp n grits

          Oh mah gawd that sounds fantastic. Shrimp n grits is my most favorite food of all time, closely followed by fried green tomatoes. I'm not southern at all...LOL. Thanks!

    2. I have read nothing about the Floridian. It looks great! Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely check it out. :-) And when I get back, I will post updated info on everything I visit since there isn't much new on this area.

      1. I went to the A1A Ale Works a couple years ago and really liked it. It was probably one of the few memorable food places I've been to in St. Augustine.

          It certainly has a great location. We're going to take a sail and the dock is right near A1A. That might be a perfect time to try it. Do they take reservations or do you have to wait in line? I couldn't find the answer to that question on their website. What did you like there?
