Reviewed yesterday NEW

We ate here three times while staying in St. Augustine and were never disappointed. The food is good and comes with two sides (gotta try the green pea casserole). Service is very good. It kind of reminds me of the restaurants my parents took us to in the 60's where the focus is on giving folks good food at good... More

Barnacle Bill’s restaurant is located next to the Best Western Spanish Quarters hotel. This is a casual family oriented place where many locals eat. It’s one of those local neighborhood places you would frequent at home for the reasonably priced food and friendly service. We both had the broiled seafood trio which was good. She had the New England clam... More

I see another listing indicating it is closed. The location in downtown St. Aug is open! We are never disappointed here! LOVE their fried shrimp sampler. It comes with coconut, datil and regular shrimp. I get it every time with their coleslaw. Of course, we will be back.

Had Grouper Matanzas and Salmon Sensation. Grouper was good but spinach souffle was tasteless and baked potato was lukewarm. I've had better salmon; it was okay but not hot. Broccoli au gratin was not good and very cold as was the yellow rice. It took almost 45 minutes from the time we place the order until the food arrived at... More

Stopped in for an early dinner. The best choices on the menu were the shrimp dishes. The fish choices were limited to mahi mahi and salmon. I was looking for some local fresh catches and was disappointed. My wife got the steamed shrimp and they were excellent. The serving was generous so she shared a few with me. I got... More

This restaurant has been a local tradition in the area since 1981. It is a family oriented atmosphere and the fish they serves is fresh caught. The New England chowder was really good as was the Caribbean Mango Mahi-mahi They have good service (Cassie) was very attentive. This place is worth another visit when visiting St Augustine.

Stumbled upon this gem the first night in St. Augustine. Looks like it is a chain, but the service and food was good and plenty for what you pay for. Price was very on par for the quality and amount of food you got.
