I arrived at 11am to see what this place was about! Chris greeted me after I waited about 5 minutes in the lobby to no one. He promptly seated me and took my drink order. I got the ahi tuna tacos, 4 small tacos with wasabi and seaweed mixed in the tuna! It was heavenly!! Chris was very accommodating and... More

Simply amazing food. I had the pasta special and my husband had the catch of the day, blackened. We simply stuffed ourselves as we could not stop eating. We got the bread pudding to take home for later and it did not disappoint! Pricey but worth every penny.

We have eaten here a number of times; most recently with some friends. We had reservations and were promptly brought to a booth which provided enough quiet for easy conversation. Even though they have an active bar, the bar and the restaurant are isolated with doors and I did not here any activity from the bar until we were left... More

We decided to try this place for lunch. Drove here from st augustine, and entered the restaurant. Not a hostess or person in sight, to greet customers. My husband walked to kitchen area where he was greeted by a waiter who totally blew us off and told my husband we could sit in the bar. The place was virtually empty.... More

This is a nice place, friendly, comfortable. First time visit. Food & wines were delicious. Waiters & waitresses were there before you realized you needed them. Wish they were closer to our side of the river. We have to get a Motel 'cause we don't drink & drive & i't probably 20 miles from home. Fun, tho & we'll do... More

We recently had a a dinner at North Beach Bistro, and I was pleasantly surprised that the restaurant is divided into 2 parts - the quiet room on the right and the loud and fun on the left, with a bar, live music and people having fun. So, depending on what you need - a quiet atmosphere or fun place,... More

My friend and I walked into this restaurant for lunch and found only one table occupied. We almost turned around and left, but asked the folks how they liked the food. Their response made us stay and we were quite pleased. We shared a bang bang shrimp appetizer that was delicious. I then had a wedge salad with wonderful blue... More

We went for brunch. So maybe dinner or lunch is better. But the omlets were awful. No flavor. Mushrooms and tomato were diced so small and so little you could not taste anything. Even the cheese had no taste. And the omlet was greasy. As were the hash browns. And they were mushy. Could not eat these at all. My... More
