Stayed in Flagler last weekend and found some great and not so great local places near the beach.
The best and newest was Flagler Fish Company. Best lobster bisque I've ever had. Its a fish market and the chef and staff know thier stuff. We went with a 3 month old baby around 2:30 and it was quite busy. I had fish tacos and they were fresh, flavorful and filling.
Manny's (A-1a in Flagler) for breakfast. Great atmosphere w/ lots of locals. My french toast was mediocre, and the bacon chewy, but hubby's greek omlette was good.
Blue (in Topaz hotel) . The seafood dishes were fresh and good, the soup and apps great, and the service friendly if not perfect. Good wine list. We thought it was a bit over-priced, but if you get a view of A1A and the ocean it was worth it.
Beachcomber- (St. Augustine Beach) - our favorite place for breakfast... amazing pancakes.They stop serving breakfast at 10:30 so go early.
