Dining in St. Augustine

The Floridian
When you visit Florida, one of the things that you should eat is seafood. This restaurant serves fresh seafood and produce in all of its dishes. Unique food combinations are created at every meal. Try the pickled peppers, shrimp and fruit salad, or the fried green tomatoes. The oyster in the shell with melted pimento cheese is another different dish that you should try if you want something out of the ordinary. The Floridian also serves comfort food like meatloaf and pecan pie.

The Hyppo
After spending a day in the warm Florida sun, enjoy a refreshing scoop of ice cream at The Hyppo. The coffee ice cream is delicious dipped in chocolate. There are two flavors of the day instead of one that you would find at other eateries. Natural sweeteners are used in the popsicles and ice cream. Many of the ice cream flavors are tropical and fruity like pineapple, mango, and pear.

Pizza Time
This is one of the best places to get pizza in the area. There is a large display of pizza and breadsticks in the front window to give you a tempting idea of what is served. The calzones are stuffed with meats and cheeses. This is a great place to take the family for a meal that is easy on the budget. There is a large selection of pizza that you can choose from. Some of the pizza is a little different like the lasagna pizza. As you enter the restaurant, you go through a line to get your plate, food, and drink. After you pay for your meal, you can eat your food inside or take it to the beach.

O'Steen's
Although this is a small restaurant, the food is incredible. It is southern seafood served in the best way. The seafood sampler is a great option if you want fish and shrimp. The flounder plate comes with two large pieces of fish that are fried to a golden brown, sweet potato soufflé, and homemade slaw.

Haszard's Open Pit Beef
Large pieces of beef on a Kaiser roll and fresh crab cakes re only two of the items that you will find at this restaurant. The crab soup is sure to warm you up on a cold day. It is creamy and has plenty of small pieces of crab mixed in. the pulled pork sandwich is one of the most popular items on the menu. Instead of smaller pieces of pork, the restaurant uses thinly sliced whole pieces of pork that have been cut in half.
