we're local and this is as good as it gets. For the locals and return visitors this is the place. Christine will be glad to see you. Cash or check only. For fun as if they accept credit cards.

We had to wait almost 2 hours for a table, but we spent it walking around downtown Saint Augustine, and arrived back just in time for our name to be called. The place is small- maybe 50 seats- and they do not serve alcohol. But...More
