O.C. Whites Restaurant Review


Hi Dolls,

How was everyone's weekend?   I enjoyed spending the weekend with one of my good friends Natalie who's getting married next month at her Bridal Shower/Bachelorette Party!  Unfortunately, I don't have very many pics from the party but I do have some of the food from the Bachelorette Party Dinner.

We went to a restaurant in St. Augustine called O.C. White's Seafood and Spirits.  The restaurant itself reminded me of an old house.  The ambiance was relaxed and there was live music which is always nice.

Ok, on to the food.  There were a lot of us so I only took pics of 3 of our dishes.  Now I love me some seafood, however, the food here left me sorely disappointed.  At least my dish did, and I'll tell you why in a few.

This was the Smoked Salmon dish that one of the bridesmaids ordered.  It came with salmon of course, capers, cream cheese, tomatoes, onions, and toast points.  I thought it looked pretty good and she said it was tasty.

This was my dish....Crabcakes.  Now I love a good crabcake and this would've been good had it not still had shells from the crab in the crab cake.  I really wanted to like it but when I bit into shell not once but twice, I was completely turned off from the dish and the restaurant.  Especially with the prices being what they are, you'd expect them to make sure there are no crab shells in the crab cakes.  BUMMER!!!

This was Natalie's dish, Grilled Mahi sandwich that she describes as tasting "very healthy".  I'm not sure what she meant by that, but judging off the looks of the dish, the fish looked flavorful to me.  Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be going back to O.C's.  Crab shells in the crab cakes is unforgivable.

Here is what I wore for the evening.  My pics have been coming out really grainy lately so this is the best one of me and unfortunately you can't see my boots.  We were in St. Augustine, historically known as the oldest city in Florida, and if you know about St. Augustine, you know there are lots cobblestone roads.  We did a lot of walking and even though you can't see the boots, they were flat.  I'll be sure to take another outfit picture soon with the boots so you can see them.  They're my new favorite boots.  


Anywho, I'll be back soon.
Have a great week!
