There are many upscale restaurants offering fine food and service in Ponte Vedra Beach. Pussers is not one of them. I had the blackened grouper which was not fresh. One bite told me to eat no more. Served on a small chewy roll with a few fries, the portion was laughable. With all the fine restaurants nearby, I will not... More

We are residents of Ponte Vedra and have gone to Pusser's since it opened. In the past, the food was pretty good, the service was friendly and the happy hour was worthwhile. Currently, the food has gone downhill, the service is OK and the management seems indifferent. As an example of their menu/dining direction, the day after Thanksgiving, the "seasonal... More

We had a deck seating and it was a nice atmosphere though I recall it was a very noisy atmosphere even outdoors. They have a rooftop deck and band some nights. Food was very good but it was a busy night so we did wait awhile. Expected to by the crowd level. No complaints.

We dined here recently and thoroughly enjoyed the food. My wife had the absolutely succulent Twice-cooked short ribs and I had a perfectly cooked Grouper fillet. Our server was pleasant and reasonably attentive but relative inexperienced. The only real negative was that there were two large and loud parties near us that made quiet conversation difficult.

I was in town from MN visiting friends and they took me here for dinner and drinks. It was too cold and windy to sit at the upstairs outside deck bar so we sat in the bar on 1st floor. Still great atmosphere, loved the elegant decor. Then the beverages came. I ordered the hurricane #4 and it was delish.... More

Service? Adequate although took quite awhile to get our dinners. Salad with Jerk chicken... diner said the jerk was him for ordering it. Said it tasted like the salad and chicken were cleaned in salt water, then had salt added. Firecracker shrimp? Apt title. Tasted like a firecracker should, but who do you know that eats firecrackers? Meatloaf? Good size... More

We ordered the conch fritters as an appetizer which were clearly frozen and lacked in flavor. We should have chosen the salmon cigars which I hear are amazing. The bread was clearly the frozen rolls from the frozen section of the grocery store and the entrées did not come with soup or salad which is something that I've come to... More

My wife and I went on a Friday night. It was busy. We got a table upstairs on the patio overlooking the lake. Great bar with lots of TV'S. The Ponte Vedra Grouper was a small proportion of fish. Many veggies and potatoes...not alot of flavor. Not worth $26. My wife's shrimp and grits was better($17). The dish was flavorful.... More

Have eaten lunch here twice with great experiences both times. Really enjoyed the waterfall and lake views from the back deck. Love the Caribbean decor. Servers were attentive both times. Good selection on menu. Highly recommend the grouper sandwich! Husband had the fancy burger and said it was cooked perfectly. Food portions are ample. Island type drinks a bit pricey.... More
