Salt Life Food Shack in St Augustine FL – Restaurant Review & Menu

 

Salt Life is now open for lunch and dinner. We will update our information and reviews as we try new food items.

1779077_617347728335566_6124390843502454065_nThe new Salt Life Food Shack in St Augustine Beach, Florida is  “BEACHY KEEN.”

St. Augustine has been waiting for this restaurant to open for a very long time and for good reason. The food is beyond fantastic! The location across the street from St. Augustine Beach Pier doesn’t hurt either, nor do the great prices and fabulous views. From the roof top deck you have the best of both worlds; sunset on one side and the Atlantic ocean on the other.

 

Now that I have had the grand tour, I can see why they took a little longer to open. Perfection! The place is perfect. The decor is the signature Salt Life colors of Turquoise & watery blues mixed with a lot of Teak colored wood. It has Beach written all over it with a casual, relaxed, resort like feel. Salt Life is the perfect place to “Eat, Drink and Be Salty.” Read More→

A Biplane Ride is the Thing To Do in St Augustine

Captain Dave in the back and two passengers

So what does a ride in a open cockpit biplane feel like? Imagine driving down a scenic highway  strapped in a high end convertible sports car. Now imagine that car lifting off and ascending over the intracoastal waterway as you pass 1,000 feet in the air with the incredible view unfolding beneath you.

That is the closest comparison I have for the sensation of being in the cockpit of a 1935 Waco biplane.  Read More→

Harry’s Seafood- Dining Under the Stars in Historic St. Augustine

  Why are we hooked on Harry’s?

THE COURTYARD.

“Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler.” Don’t ask me to pronounce that, especially after I’ve had a Hurricane but it means,“Let the Good Times Roll”

And roll they have – time and time again for us at Harry’s.

Although this place is called Harry’s Seafood, we don’t go there expecting grilled fresh catch. This place has Louisiana and New Orleans written all over it – we’re talking jambalaya, Etoufee, Gumbo, Mardi Gras beads and Hurricanes.

Harry’s is reasonably priced with consistently good food in the very heart of historic Saint Augustine. But let me tell you about  THE COURTYARD… Read More→

Cap’s on the Water- Spectacular Sunsets and Waterfront Dining

    Why is Cap’s on The Water a Top pick  for Family and Friends?

The Atmosphere. The Perfect Mix of Water Views, Spectacular Sunsets, Majestic Oaks Draped in Spanish Moss Swaying in the Gentle Breeze and Great Food and Drink.

Located between Saint Augustine and Ponte Vedra, you will find a gem of a restaurant on the Inter-Coastal Waterway. Caps is well known for its award-winning wine selection of over 400 wines – but I’ll take the “Goombay Smash”. They make the famous St Augustine signature drink better than most – a delicious concoction of Rums, Brandy and fruit juice. Read More→
