  • For over 100 years, visitors and locals have enjoyed the food at Aunt Kate's seafood restaurant, located on the banks of the Tolomato River in St. Augustine. Owned and operated by members of the Usina family of St. Augustine, Aunt Kate's provides fresh, local seafood dishes — a number of them seasoned with Minorcan flavors. 

    Sited in a grove of live oaks, guests can dine on the outside decks under the trees, inside in either the main dining room, and at the Victory bar.  Specializing in seafood, this restaurant offers a varied menu that includes steamed oysters, peel 'n eat shrimp, fresh salad, great soups, terrific steak, and blackened chicken.

    Their Minorcan specialties include the traditional rice dish of Pilau (pronounced Perlo) and Minorcan Clam Chowder.

    This is one of the few restaurants in St. Augustine accessible by boat. Boaters can tie up at Aunt Kate's floating dock for lunch or dinner.  By car, Aunt Kate's is located near Vilano Beach, inside North Beach Camping Resort. Happy hour is from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the bar.

    I am a new resident here in St. Augustine and my first visit to Aunt Kate's. What a treat it was. The service was wonderful. The food was great and a good dollar value. Will Be back!

    Hubby and I wasted $45 on a nasty lunch. The complimentary 'Datil' cornbread was dry, crumbly and cold. The crab cakes were bland and had to be returned because they were sopping wet and raw in the middle. They were replaced and dropped off at the edge of the table, without a comment; new cakes were burnt. The fried shrimp were edible but not especially tasty. The salad 'greens' consisted of iceberg lettuce, one cucumber slice and they were out of tomatoes. Complained three times without an offer of substitution or an apology and never a glimpse of management. Blah service, tasteless food. The view is not worth it.

    I just want to thank Candy and the staff at Aunt Kate's for the excellent customer service last week. The Retired Educators of Bibb County, Georgia truly enjoyed themselves. We will be back! Tobbie Jefferson - Group Destination Manager

    What a great restaurant! We thought it might be some sort of shack along the river, but this place is modern and quite large. A huge deck outside (I mean huge) and a big restaurant inside. Great views..but the food is fabulous. I had the Broiled Seafood platter. Everything and I mean everything was fixed to perfection...moist and done just right...from the maji maji, crabcake and scallops to the shrimp. This may have been the absolute best seafood platter I have ever eaten...and I should know, having spent 25-years near Boston. My wife had a wonderful Spring Salad, full of pecans and dried cranberries. What a dining experience!

    I ate lunch at Kate's and sat under the beautiful big trees right along the water's edge with three of my girlfriends. The food was great and this would be a wonderful place to eat and watch the sun set!
