Jax Water Tours in St. Augustine

** Jax Water Tours is no longer in business. The owner, Captain Brooks, was arrested for his inappropriate behavior with a minor. Please consider the Schooner Freedom instead whose crew is known and respected by this community. If you prefer a pontoon-style cruise, FLORIDA Water Tours has replaced the water tour from Vilano. Captain Brooks is on probation with the Florida Department of Corrections until 9/8/2026.

BBQ Sauce on fries French Fry Heaven

Okay, I confess.  I was not first in line for French Fry Heaven St. Augustine when they opened.  I mean, big deal- they serve french fries just like all the other restaurants in St Augustine, right?  Wrong. French Fry Heaven employs a unique cooking method where they twice-fry their treats resulting in crunchy outsides with a light & fluffy interior.  Perfection!  French Fry Heaven, indeed!
