Fodor's Expert Review Sunset Grille

$$ St. Augustine Seafood
They take their chowders seriously in St. Augustine, and many will tell you Sunset Grille's is the best—so good that it's poured over french fries as an appetizer. If you prefer a lighter version, a cup of the award-winning chowder works as a perfect prelude to the fresh fish dinners featuring Caribbean snapper and macadamia-crusted grouper. The popular restaurant, framed by a white picket fence, has a Key West vibe and two dining areas: a lively interior and an open-air second-story deck with distant ocean views. Reservations are not accepted, but the frequent crowds gathered in the pleasant waiting area indicate that most consider the dining experience well worth the wait.
