June 15, 2022

St. Augustine may be known for its Spanish history, but along with it comes cuisine rich in European influence. With a cozy spot along the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, St. Augustine brings in fresh seafood for its fine dining restaurants during all times of year. No vacation to Florida’s Historic Coast is complete without dining at one of the great seafood restaurants in St. Augustine.

St. Augustine Seafood Co – Located right in the heart of St. George Street, St. Augustine Seafood Company offers a delightful selection of fresh local-caught fish sandwiches and shrimp baskets and fries served with a variety of specialty sauces. You must try their raw oysters and signature red and white clam chowder for the best of both worlds. And you can enjoy your meal either in the restaurant, the bar lounge area or outside in the Colonial Oak Music Park as you listen to some live music.

Catch 27 – If you’re in the Historic District you’re not far from one of the finest seafood places around. And if you’re hankering for fresh fish, it’s here. From sheepshead to snapper, shrimp to clams, it’s all caught in Florida waters and prepared from scratch with locally sourced fresh produce. Try the tacos or Cuban rice bowl for something truly different.

St. Augustine Fish Camp – Set on the docks of the San Sebastian River, the fresh and inviting catch of the day, the light from the sun shimmers off the water, and the vibrant atmosphere make this a seafood lover’s dream come true

.O.C. White’s Seafood & Spirits – After a day of sightseeing in the ancient city, you might find yourself along the bayfront. Lucky you, that’s where you’ll find O.C White’s. You can’t miss the twinkling lights in the outdoor garden where diners are treated to live music by up-and-coming local performers. Inside, a welcoming bar awaits you while the warm stone walls in the dining room upstairs take you back to 1790. This is a perfect place to enjoy a classic seafood meal with a view of the harbor.

Head across the Bridge of Lions to Conch House Marina Resort where fresh seafood and Caribbean-style cuisine is served in the privacy in one of the restaurant’s "grass huts" - booths that jut out over the water and are covered with tiki umbrellas. If you’ve been out fishing for the day, bring your catch- the chef will cook it up for you as part of their Hook to Fork experience.
