Cowboys Salt Water
Cowboys interior is reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century fish camp with handmade willow twig furniture, old wooden floors, rusted tin ceilings with gator and snake skins hanging on the walls. Perched above wildlife laden salt marshes flanking the Inter coastal Waterway.
The ambiance definitely fit the location and food selection - unfortunatley we do not eat certain seafood items so our selection was limited to the catch of the day, chicken or steak - The catch was Mai Mai, which my husband order and said he liked, my step daughter and I had a steak - which were okay, not very flavorful and my fries were cold, which I asked for hot ones, but that did not improve the taste (they should look into a more fancier french fry - or higher grade fry) the green bean casserole side - was okay - just seemed out of place and the salad was okay - I think I would have enjoyed a more traditional salad (greens, tomato, onion, etc) Not sure how I feel about the stray cats roaming the place - though they did fit the scenery, and did entertain my toddler while we were eating. The service was great! We did have a little situation when we first got there (a bug) which the staff took care of and gave us a free cocktail. But overall it was too pricey for the quality of food that was served - if I was paying for ambiance, well....I don't think the ole Cowboy will be seeing us around again.
As newcomers to the area, we have been trying a lot of SA's restaurants. The setting took us there. The setting and building is very nice. The food was very average. The fish portion was small and they served bagged french fries. That alone tells me they aren't trying very hard to present great food. And the prices are not cheap by any measure. My guess is they are resting on their somewhat unique setting to bring in the patrons. There are other places in the area with settings equally beautiful and much better food, in our opinion.
The food was reasonably priced and very tasty. The menu had some very interesting items, including (of course) alligator and Cooter, which is soft-shelled turtle!
The atmosphere is casual.

We've visited St Augustine for several years and eat at Cowboy's every time. The atmosphere is Old Florida, like it was in the '20's and '30's. I even found a photo of people I knew back then (the '30's) on the entrance wall! The food is beyond compare... if you go, try the Rock Shrimp. It's a dish served, I think, only at Cowboy's and Creekside Dinery, also in St Augustine, and it's outstanding. The alligator and orange sauce is also excellent, and really, all the seafood dishes we've tried have been great. Going to Cowboy's is a real event! See you there!
