There are several places to eat in historic downtown St. Augustine. If you are looking for something a little upscale, there's 95 Cordova in the Casa Monica Hotel. For seafood, there's Harry's or O.C. White's. A1A Ale Works is nice restaurant/brewing company; Scarlett's has a nice relaxed pub atmosphere. I like doing Sunday brunch at Columbia Restaurant--Spanish food. There are other great places outside the historic old city, but not sure how far you want to go for food.

Casa Maya is really good! Really small though (like 5 tables) and they're only open for breakfast and lunch, so go during off times or plan to wait for a table. Columbia is really good, too.

For a "beachy" vibe, we liked The Conch House, too. It's a short drive to from the historic area.

I'll second The Conch House. Fun to eat outside in their little bungalos!

Conch House is good,try the calamari. However,if you go at other than "mealtimes" i.e.in the middle of the afternoon, they tend to run out of a lot of menu items.

I personally don't think Conch House is worth the money. I've eaten there many times and always end up disappointed. For seafood I like O.C. White's or Sunset Grill (on the beach), burgers i like Big Belly Burgers (also on the beach) or A1A Ale Works. We've never had a bad meal at Raintree (in the Historic District) or Gypsy Cab Co. (on the island). Have a great time. St. Augustien is a fun place to visit. Make sure you check out the St. Augustine Beach Pier on Wednesday night. They have free concerts.
