Love the beachy atmosphere, friendly staff and unique and oh-so-delicious food! My favorites are the grouper sandwich and the shrimp brochette. You can’t go wrong with their fried rice and/or shack fries!

The food was so good and the view was beautiful. We sat on the top floor and you can see the ocean from there. Our waitress was so nice.

Awesome food, atmosphere and Waite staff. We travel to St. Augustine once a year and make sure we visit this Salt Life at least twice during the week for lunch. Sometimes more often!

This is must-visit restaurant. Friendly service, great food, beautiful decor. This is beach dining at its finest. Feels like a laid back, relaxing beach restaurant, but the service and food quality are top notch. Try the nachos!
