We have been eating at the Kingfish for several years and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere sitting outside is enchanting. The food is constantly good. We would highly recommend this restaurant as a must when visiting st Augustine.

Staff was very attentive but the quality of food was lacking specifically the crab cakes. Windows were also dirty so I would recommend sitting outside before sunset.More

Thanks for writing the review. We have had a nor'easter here for several days, so the salt spray has been tough on our windows, yes. We did get them cleaned on Tuesday, so they should have been nice for your visit. Most of our guests...More

Outside is awesome. You are on the pier overlooking the water. I recommend the soft shell crab appetizer, the scallops, and best of all the blackened grouper. Note to management: time to remodel the inside.

Glad you liked outside and the food. Thanks for sharing, we appreciate that. The decor inside? Some people find it dated, some find it quaint. Whatever you feel, we will always make you warm and cozy. Thanks again.
