My wife and I had been to the Sea Fare 20 years ago and had fond memories.
We had high hopes! It was exactly as we remembered it. I mean exactly! Same booths, same paint, even the same fixtures. It was both familiar and in another way eerey.
I mean, the silverware, the plates, cups, everything looked as if it were still the same from 20 years ago, ( I mean the exact same ones!)
We asked for water with some lemon. They had "no lemon!" (This must be the only seafood restraunt in America without lemon).
We expected a nice appetizer. What we got was some pie crust chips with some kind of weird melted cheese (proceeded), dip.
My wife got a steak. (She says it was very good!) I on the other hand had the shrimp ( which was overlooked and to be frank, not very good).
The drinks were a bright spot as my wife got a Bahamas blue that would put a mortal man into a coma. I got a rum runner which was a little more tame but had a nice bite.
The waitresses seemed to be very busy, ( unfortunately it didn't seem that providing service to the customers were what they were busy with). Rather, they all seemed to congregate around the owners table and gush over them and their family. (I guess waitress jobs are hard to come by in st. Augustine!
To sum it up, this place is very rundown. Has no ambiance , with mediocre food at best, and at 60.00+ for two people is not up to the prices they charged!
Sorry Sea Fare. We loved the memory of you for years! ( but much like the prom queen you had a crush on when you were in high school has turned out to be a fat hog when you see her at the 25th anniversary school reunion!)
We'll just have to remember how great she used to be. But, sadly, the Sea Fare is past her prime.
