What They Say About Us

Best Seafood Boil Ever!

The best seafood boil my boyfriend and I have ever had hands down! I absolutely loved the shrimp and grits. It was a huge portion and very filling. We also got Conch fritters as an appetizer, they were very fresh and light. They came with 6 fritters, about the size of ping pong balls. Our server was Mason. He was very attentive and nice. We will most definitely be back, but with our families!

Midway between downtown St. Augustine and Vilano Beach, this little gem is nestled in the Camachee Cove Marina. Great locals place, great food and service. Possibly the best prepared seafood we have ever had, and we order fish frequently at restaurants. The swordfish special was the most tender prepared we have ever had, and the horseradish encrusted mahi would melt in your mouth! The special mussels in anniset and cream sauce was amazing!

Kingfish was great!
Was a bit too chilly to sit outside although some brave souls still did but the views of the water and boats were still awesome inside. Sherri was our waitress and took great care of us. She also was well versed in all aspects of the menu to help with choices. The food was DELICIOUS We had blackened scallops, "Cry no mas sushi" and wine. Prices are reasonable for the area and portions. Would return for sure. Would love to try the Seafood boil. Highly recommend The Kingfish!!!

This place is off da hook! Great food, great and friendly service and staff, great ambiance! Highly, Highly, Highly recommended! If you miss this place, you’re only hurting your life experiences! The KeyTinini was great too! I had the grilled mahi-mahi and the boss had the Captain’s Plattter. The batter is light and delicious in itself.

Excellent food and portion size!
One of the few times in the last year that I finished my meal and not still hungry. The food was outstanding and the portions were better than most others. Their drinks we had at happy hour were outstanding. And the service and atmosphere was perfect. Will definitely return!
Loved the cheesy grits!
Loved the cheesy grits. The blackened mahi mahi sandwich was great as was the crab cakes with the sweet relish. The error in judgement roll was a little too spicy. The key lime pie was a a perfect ending. The Bulleit old fashioned was a delight. Will return! Loved my birthday day on the waterfront!!!!

So fresh, so tasty!!
My husband and I are staying at the marina where the restaurant is located. We have found with restaurants on site of marinas are usually “good” but not stellar. We took a chance and walked over, we were sat immediately on a busy Friday night outside. We ordered the daily special appetizer which was the Datil Pepper Fish Dip I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful this was! (and priced reasonable to boot), I ordered the blackened grouper and my husband had the grilled snapper with lemon butter caper sauce. So fresh, so tasty!! We will definitely go back again before we leave the marina! Service was wonderful as well!!

It was absolutely DELICIOUS
We tried Kingfish Grill on the water Friday night for the first time. I was surprised to see that it was pretty empty on a Friday night. Parking was scarce because they share the lot with a hotel, however they did have a golf cart taxi that followed cars to there parking spot so you didn’t have to walk to the restaurant (& back to your car after you ate) which I thought was GREAT. I ordered the catch of the day, Mahi Mahi, grilled w/lemon butter & capers, mashed potatoes w/sour cream & chives & broccoli, it was absolutely DELICIOUS. Hands down the best Mahi I have had. My husband ordered the Captains platter blackened (Mahi, scallops & shrimp) & again delicious. We finished with the crème brûlée, of course it was AMAZING. We will definitely be returning. The view was beautiful, we sat outside, we did have a passing shower, but we never got wet under the outside tent. The music was nice & the staff was great. Our waitress was very sweet, wish I could remember her name to thank her.

The Kingfish Grill is a Hidden Gem
\The Harborview Room above the Kingfish Grill is a hidden gem in St. Augustine and Sheri and her team make it sparkle! We had to suddenly move our wedding with only 2 weeks to go but Sheri helped us pull it off without a hitch. She and the chef helped us choose delicious appetizers (oysters, smoked salmon, and much more!) and main course food (prime rib and horseradish encrusted mahi). Sheri and Danielle placed my decor around the room and were there when the florist and bakery arrived to make all of the finishing touches beautiful. The parking lot was busy that night but the Kingfish has a large golfcart "shuttle" that runs guests back and forth all night long. No problems at all. The view of the marina and river is outstanding from inside as well as from the large balcony where we watched the full moon rise. We had our ceremony in front of the beautiful stone fireplace and quests had plenty of room on the dance floor. We think it was a PERFECT place for us to be married and celebrate with our friends and family. It was meant to be.

Always a Great Time!
Always enjoy eating outside and watching the people and boats going by! Good food and always a great time!
Good food and views!
We enjoyed our lunch on Saturday. Anthony was our server and was very prompt and helpful! We had our dog and sat outside on the picnic tables and enjoyed the beautiful view. The mahi sandwich was delicious and filling. We will definitely be back!

This place is very cute and the food was very good.
We dined outside and they had live music. Our server Anthony was a absolute delight. He recommended having the green beans sautéed in the garlic butter and it was a hit. I highly recommend this place for a nice date night out. My husband and I enjoyed it so much!

Thanks for the excellent experience!
We had a party of 10 and we all had great food. The waitress was 100% on the ball. She was very attentive to all of us. Everyone enjoyed the portions and not a complaint among any of us. Thanks for the excellent experience!
Everything was terrific!
Everything was terrific.! Fresh catch grilled swordfish was so good, combined with the chef’s mashed potato and green beans with almonds, was in another level!

Always Excellent!
We ate here again last night & it was delicious again! Chicken Piccata is my favorite but burgers & seafood are awesome too!! Nice staff, clean & beautiful view on the water. Eat inside or out ! Someimes there is live music on deck! Lots of people at the bar & they drive you in with a golf cart!! Just fun & well priced. Dylan was great last night – attentive & knew the menu!!
Great Place!
Great sushi! I had the calamari Roll and it was awesome. The service was great! Beautiful view and amazing view when you sit outside on the deck. Love this place!

Good location! Laid back atmosphere. We walked right in with a large party. Outdoor seating with beautiful landscaping, decor, and views of the boats and water. The food was excellent! Fried goat cheese app is fantastic. Swordfish, Mahi with thai-chili sauce, raw oysters, crab legs, were all fresh and well prepared. We had a birthday and they made an ice cream sandwich cake for the birthday girl and gave ice cream sandwiches to all the kids. Servers were also great.

This place is fantastic!
This place is fantastic. We had a large group of 13 in a Saturday night. They do not take reservations but we’re able to get in quickly. Sherry was our waitress, and she was incredibly. She gave great suggestions, and her service was impeccable. The food was as great as our service. Everyone loved what they ordered, and we are all ready to go back next time we are in Saint Augustine. Thank you, Sherry, you made for a great experience.

Kingfish was the perfect choice
We were looking for a seafood restaurant that would be pet friendly as we were visiting for the day with our dogs. Kingfish was the perfect choice. They have 6 picnic style tables outside for anyone with pets. They also had a full bowl of water available and were so welcoming. Our waiter, Samson, was fantastic. Super friendly and knowledgeable. Guided me to a dish I would not have picked on my own, but it was well worth it (don’t remember the full name. It’s a horseradish mahi). Parking is limited but we were able to find something in the lot as we got there just after 5pm. By 5:30 it was full. They offer a taxi service using a golf cart to pick you up if you park elsewhere. I saw several people use this and it seems to be convenient. We plan to return on future visits.

"Hallmark " weekend!
I had family in from New Mexico in for a "Hallmark " weekend! We had a delicious dinner before the 8:30pm boat cruise! Our server was helpful as to what would be best to order with the time restrictions! The fried shrimp were the best!!! Thanks to all.

Luckily we found this place and decided to eat there. This place is a beauty. Loved those surroundings of tress, plants, boats and water. I must say I loved my poke bowl, the best I had, tuna was so dam fresh and good, we also had catch of the day, rice wasn’t good though, kids enjoyed their shrimps and chips. Sushi was also refreshing. It was really good food so plz if you are there don’t miss it.
(June 2019 Review)
Stopped by for lunch on my way back to Atlanta. Chose this restaurant based upon the reviews on this forum. It was a great choice!!! I had a seafood platter. The shrimp, scallops, oysters, fish, fries and slaw were delicious. Oysters on the half shell were perfect as well. My daughter got the snow crab clusters. She said they were great too. The California rolls were a little different than expected but still tasty. We sat on the patio with a gas heater (it was low 60’s with a breeze) and really enjoyed the view and atmosphere. I really enjoyed the meal and highly recommend Kingfish Grill.
