We stumbled upon this place by accident (much like the other places we find) because there was a massive billboard with nothing else around that said TURN HERE FOR KINGFISH GRILL. Well, we had to turn. The outside decor was cute and would have been nice if it wasn't so hot outside so we sat inside next to a window and were able to watch a storm come in. I had the fried shrimp platter and the fries that came with it were amazing.
The one day we went to downtown St Augustine we walked around for a while before being able to find a place to eat that everyone enjoyed. This little place was in the middle of a lot of construction and we almost missed it. When you walk in you see that it seats about 20 people maximum, and we were sat in a room that looked like it was an enclosed porch with a window AC unit that wasn't working. While I probably wouldn't go again due to the size (I'm claustrophobic) everyone enjoyed their food. My parents shared crab cakes and a red clam chowder and my sister had shrimp tacos that we all had a bite of. My chicken bowl was a little bland, but that could have been my fault.
We ordered food from cafe eleven our first night there because it was less than a 5 minute walk from our condo to the restaurant. When you walk in, it's an order first type of place and they will give you a number to place at your table. We were taking the food togo and had called ahead so it was waiting for us when we got there. There were many craft beers available and many wines by the glass. The food was ok, nothing super special. The flavour was there but maybe because we had taken it togo it had too much time to sit before we ate.
Out of every place we ate, this was my favourite. The location is an unassuming building that looks like it may have been a classic car show room at one point. Service was ok, my parents ordered 4 bottles of wine before they were able to find one that was actually in stock. The manager came and apologised letting us know that she had new menus sitting on a printer in Chicago waiting to be sent. Everyone's food was great and the bar looked cute. But really, go for the food and you won't be disappointed.
Homemade popsicles, what could be better? They make note of which ones are made with dairy for lactose intolerant people which was very nice. The flavours were great and the staff was very polite. $3.50 per popsicle was a bit high but it was definitely worth it.
