We found this place on TripAdvisor, and we were very happy we did. We sat at the bar and had great service and food. The menu is limited, as you would expect from a gastro pub, but we could hear raves from other customers about what they ordered, and we were very happy with our meal. Prices are very reasonable. We'll be back.

Before or after shopping all day this is the best and must stop place for food nearby and our service from Dena Lynn was second to none. I happened upon this place for lunch after golfing with my son nearby. Got the last table at 1pm on a Saturday. Dena Lynn gave us some recommendations as we had never been here before. We settled on sharing the prime rib steak sandwich/side of fried pickles and the datil pepper cream cheese stuffed burger medium rare/side of sweet potato fries. Food arrived within minutes of order and was cooked to perfection. A nearby patron had a what looked like a sundae that looked tasty and I commented to them and they also recommended the bread pudding which we chose for desert. Came warm, carmellized and huge. Kept Dena Lynn busy with all the drink refills but she was on top of it the whole time. Will definitely be back to try some other tasty delights

We were on our way to St. Augustine and looked up a lunch place on Trip Advisor. This got great reviews so we went. It's at the end of a strip center kind of not near anything else. You'd have to know about it to find it. It was pretty full and looked like mostly locals, not tourists. They bake their own bread and it is delicious! The shrimp po boy had lightly battered Mayport shrimp with cole slaw on that great bread and was really good. We ordered fired pickles with it. They were sweet, not dill. The sandwich was so good and filling, that we had to leave the pickles on the plate so we could finish the po boy. I had the Asian pork sewers and the meat was SOOOOO tender and flavorful. It's listed as an appetizer, but there was more meat than I could eat in this single serving. Their Caesar salad is nothing special, so I would advise ordering something else. I'd love to go back for dinner next time.

They have craft beers as well as a full bar.

The waitress was very personable and efficient.

I thought this was a bar, but while it has a bar, it’s more of a restaurant. The menu is fresh and varied. Although I ordered a hamburger, it was well prepared and very different from fast food. The lunch crowd, all locals, poured in, so you know it’s good.
