The Santa Maria Restaurant and Fishermans Wharf Lounge is located in the heart of historic downtown St. Augustine and sits out over the Intracoastal Waterway, making a truly memorable dining experience for anyone visiting the area. Along with the fantastic views of Matanzas Bay you can “Feed the fish while you dine”. We have trap doors next to the tables for feeding the swarms of catfish and mullet that surround the building. Be sure to ask your server for some food to feed the fish. We are also frequented by manatees, dolphins, pelicans, seagulls and a wide assortment of Florida native birds.
