If you want better responses, repost with "St. Augustine Restaurant Help" in the title. Good luck and good dining.

From a previous post of mine:

Here are my restaurant recommendations, based solely on my personal preferences... and 17 years of enjoying their cuisine:

Old City House http://www.oldcityhouse.com/
Outstanding breakfasts and dinners. Located just steps away from the Casa Monica.

The Raintree http://www.raintreerestaurant.com/

The Reef <http://www.thereefstaugustine.com/index.html?
The food is very good, and the ocean views are even better. Be sure to arrive before sunset (or for Sunday brunch) for best views. Request a window table when making your reservation.

Saltwater Cowboys
(My personal favorite for ambiance and value combined)
<http://www.saltwatercowboys.com/>

Gypsy Cab Co. <http://www.gypsycab.com/>

Creekside Dinery http://www.creeksidedinery.com/rest.html

Le Pavillion <http://www.lepav.com/>


Honorable mention

O'Steens
(Perhaps the best shrimp in town. ZERO ambiance, no reservations, reasonable prices)

Barnacle Bill's
(Very good shrimp, reasonable prices, family atmosphere)
http://www.barnaclebillsonline.com/


You'll notice that I did not mention the Columbia restaurant. IMO, their food is good, but not as good as any of the other restaurants I have mentioned.

Also, it is somewhat of a tourist trap and one of about 6-8 other Columbia's around the state. This may qualify them as a chain restaurant. I know a lot of people eat there, but the other restaurants I have given you are all better.


Happy dining!

P.S.

Let me know if you have more specific questions.

This is probably too late for you but for future people this is a useful link
http://www.augustine.com/ look under vacation and click on restaurant. I personally like A1A Aleworks and JPHenley's

http://www.jphenleys.com

It would have also helped if the author had said what he/she likes to eat.
