Uncle Ernie's sits on the waters edge in St Andrew's right next to the marina. They have indoor and outdoor seating, all with a view of the water. Ernie's does a great business and caters to families. They also have a nice bar if you would rather eat in there. There is plenty of parking and the food is great.

The only reason I gave them a 4 out of 5 is because I called before we went there and made sure they had a Gluten Free Menu and I was told yes, When we get there I asked the lady that sat us for a Gluten Free Menu and she said there was not one that anything on the... More

I always bring my friends and family that come in town to visit me to this restaurant. They are pleased when they leave and agree with me that the food is wonderful. Yes it does have the most beautiful sun set but it also has amazing sea food. One of the best in the area for sure. It usually does... More

We were afraid we would have to wait since the area surrounding the restaurant was busy, but we were seated immediately. We chose to sit inside but the outdoor seating had quite a bit of shelter to it and would have been great too. Our waiter was full of life although he had to read the specials from a "cheat... More

We get to PCB once a year and Uncle Ernie's is always on the places to dine list. This year was my 6th visit and I've always enjoyed my meals.This is a busy place so try to arrive early to avoid lines and indoor seating.

We sat on the back deck the food was good but a little pricey $25 for shrimp and grits. Wife had the smoked tuna dip and it was ok as well. The sunset was really nice.

I say pricey, because the menu back 10 years ago was simpler and cheaper. It has gotten more "trendy" due to the close proximity to the Old St. Andrews area of PC. And...several high-end eateries have edged in close to this waterfront section of a now desirable (or at least, more so than in the past) hood. We split a... More
