Leigh Insurance Agency of St Augustine Blog
Great View and Good Eat’s! I have to say that I really enjoy meeting people and going to new places when it’s time to blog about them but my visit to the St. Augustine Fish Camp was one for the books! When we arrived, the first thing I noticed was the valet parking booth… Of course, as luck would have it, a spot opened right in front of the restaurant and we snagged it! It was a gorgeous evening, not quite dark so the pink and purple colors of the setting sun danced across the water. We did not even think about making a reservation and was told very politely that there would be a wait. I really did not mind because I had already checked out the seating on the back deck and a very nice seating area on the dock and thought how nice it would be to sit and watch the sun set. We were told that we’d get a text when it was our turn to be seated and that there was an area set up outside that we could order drinks! To be honest, I can’t tell you how long we waited but I will go as far as to say that it wasn’t long enough because we were relaxing with the absolute best view. The atmosphere inside was very comfortable and relaxing. They have TVs in the bar area if you choose to be seated there but I noted that the layout of the restaurant was perfect in that we were not distracted by the televisions or loud conversations. The entire staff that attended to my date and I were all extremely polite and helpful.
Now, let’s get down to the meat and potatoes of this blog…. The food! I had a very hard time making a decision because there were so many wonderful choices but finally decided to start with the Fried Gator Tail with Datil Pepper Aioli. THIS could have very easily been my entree’! It was cooked to perfection and although I snooped a look at all the other plates passing by me (they ALL looked amazing), I was happy with my decision. For dinner, I chose the Fish Camp Shrimp & Grits and my date chose the Blackened Mahi. I cannot stress enough to you the presentation of each dinner plate as well as the mouth-watering tastiness that both of us experienced! Upon leaving St. Augustine Fish Camp, we had already decided on coming back and what dish we would be trying on our next visit! I learned that they have 7 locations between St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach and Jacksonville. You can visit their website at www.thefishcamps.com to get the addresses and telephone numbers of each and check out their menu or find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/staugustinefishcamp/.
Leigh Insurance Agency selected St. Augustine Fish Camp as our business highlight this week because the area is buzzing about this new restaurant, what a great addition it is to our community and the 4-star dining experience you are afforded as their patron! I can attest firsthand that the buzz is well warranted and your friends here at Leigh Insurance would like for you to join us in welcoming them to the great city of St. Augustine!
