    Great Food, Beautiful Location!

    We had a great time. The staff was so kind to us and our dog - without asking, they brought water. The food was delicious and the setting was so relaxing. I highly recommend!

    Dog friendly, great food!

    We heard great things about this restaurant from the locals and the fact we could bring our dog and walk off dinner downtown afterwards was a huge plus. Crab cakes were to die for. Shrimp and grits were superb and of course we HAD to get a slice of key lime pie while in Florida! The kitchen grilled up an unseasoned chicken breast for our standard poodle and provided fresh ice water and a shady table on the patio. Highly recommend!

    Great atmosphere

    Huge patio and plenty of seating for people with dogs! Live music and great service throughout the evening, and they were very happy to have me and my fur monsters and be able to give them treats. I definitely would recommend this spot to anyone traveling to STA with dogs!

    Dog friendly place in downtown

    Very Good restaurant. Food was delicious, probably the best crab cakes. Expensive but it’s dog friendly outside on the patio.

    Very welcoming!

    My husband and I have our puppy with us on our first mini family vacation since getting married three weeks ago. We didn’t want to leave him home or with a sitter so he came with us. We called ahead to make sure we could bring him to dinner too. Our waitress, Barbie, was so kind and made sure that we had everything we need for him in addition to us! We will be back!

    Super friendly to our pups!

    We enjoyed an AMAZING dinner on their GORGEOUS patio! They dogs were brought water and were given plenty of space to stretch out. OC Whites is a beautiful restaurant in the heart of historic Saint Augustine that really shows the rich history this beautiful town has. The food was delicious and there wasn’t an issue with parking (which can be tight in the downtown area) as they have their own parking lot to the side- just keep your receipt. We loved having dinner here during our mother daughter trip and will definitely be back!

    Welcomed and fed us all!

    We, along with our Golden, were warmly welcomed for dinner by many of the staff and given a great table. We enjoyed our dinner and Cooper enjoyed his plated grilled chicken dinner prepared with no seasoning, just for him. Our hostess and server were both very happy to have us and accommodating. Very good experience.

    Great place in historic district to eat out with your dog

    We went in OC White’s for a quick bite with our 80 pound dog this July. We got a quick table in the outside patio with the lovely view, shade and a giant fan. It helped cool us all down including our pet. Adria got us all our drinks and a bowl of water for our pup. They were patient when he would bark sometimes. They made us feel comfortable and enjoy the evening. There was music that evening and the food was good. We loved the crab dip and the grits. We will come back here next time. Thanks

    Parking attendant is awesome!

    Parking lot is a big plus, and the attendant is a great guy. Previous posts about the hostess are accurate, we just didn’t feel welcome with our dog. They do have great crab and spinach dip.

    Dog lovin' people with a great view

    We had the BEST time at O.C. White's on our honeymoon with our dog Vinny. This was our first time ever visiting a dog-friendly restaurant and they did not disappoint. Vin was treated like royalty - and oh yeah, the food is absolutely delicious! We are from NJ but if we ever return to the area, we will definitely be back!

    Beautiful Patio!

    The outdoor patio has a relaxing atmosphere. Penny was brought a water bowl with ice and a glass with extra. The food was incredibly tasty. (Shrimp and Grits are to die for!) We appreciated their parking lot as parking is usually hard to find. Fantastic place to go!!!

    Beautiful location, great food, dog friendly!

    Great location, beautiful patio with lots of shade for humans as well as our dog. The hostess was indifferent to our bringing our dog but the waitress was so great! Made sure our dog had water and had a shady place to lay. It's so wonderful to find a restaurant that allows dogs and has great food and drink. We had the seafood special and the grits with blackened shrimp, it was THE best! Sorry if other people and their dog(s) did not have a great experience at O.C. White's but we did and we highly recommend going!

    Great Shade and fans

    The patio area is shaded and cool and the fans are an extra bonus. The wait staff is super friendly and even though I had my own water bowl for my dog they still brought me ice to add. The food is also great and reasonably priced.

    Not too impressed.

    I was looking for a restaurant to stop by with my husband and our two labs. The food wasn't worth the price. They allowed our dogs, but weren't overly friendly as I had believed from the other reviews on here. There isn't too much room for the dogs to lay down, pretty crowded and uncomfortable. I wish I had looked into more restaurants before picking that one. They did provide water in a take out container when we asked for water for our dogs.

    Great experience

    We came to this restaurant after Hurricane Irma on our way home and they bring water for our dog, the food was great, and the service even better!!! It is very nice been away from home and find a place when you can have a nice family time even with your 4 legged baby.

    Amazingly dog friendly

    We stop by for lunch on our trip to Atlanta. The hostess and waitress were awesome about my German Shepard being here. The wait staff was so accommodating.

    Not as Dog Friendly as Claimed

    The hostess was definitely not happy about seating us with our dog. I didn't think she was going to seat us at all until I mentioned I found the restaurant on BringFido and specifically chose it so I could bring my dog. She then made a comment that she would "seat us in the dog-friendly area at the back of the patio." She put us in the sunniest spot possible. My 103 lb. lab just wanted some shade. The waitress was great and brought plenty of water for him. The food was good but I won't be back. Not at all what I expected based on other reviews.

    The patio dining area is very pretty, shaded and even has fans under the covered area. The food was good, the staff was very nice and extremely dog friendly; I think every employee came out to pet our furbaby. I would have given it 5 stars if they served Breakfast everyday or at least Brunch Saturday AND Sunday-Brunch only and only on Sunday. Other then that it was nice!

    Good experience

    We had to find a place in Saint Augustine to have lunch/brunch. My criteria was 1. dog friendly 2. seeing or good atmosphere 3. not to expensive but had good food 4. vegetarian options 5. not to far from where my friends were staying 6. shade in the dining area.

    So after finding 4 different options and eliminating based on my criteria, we came up with OC Whites. I liked that it was historic. The patio area had old trees that had made vines and created a canopy. And they had fans to keep you cool. Not bad for August.

    Because they have been there for long time, they have their own parking lot! That was really great because it is a busy area of town.

    The food was good. Everyone was happy with their choice. They even brought my dogs some toast to munch on while we ate and brought them some water.

    The dogs were happy and the other guests were very friendly to our dogs too.

    It is across the street from the marina. And you can see the Bridge of Lions from the marina.

    Thumbs up to the restaurant, and staff for making it an enjoyable event for me, my husband, our two big dogs, and friends.

    Great place to eat with your pup.

    Had a great time at their Sunday brunch. Food was awesome but they also took care of my baby girl by bringing her a bowl of water. Another great thing was that most of the patio was covered so it was not too hot to eat outside.

    Great for food and pets

    Went here with my chocolate lab. Wait staff was friendly and loved dogs! The patio is large and very nice with shaded areas and comfortable seating. Food is delicious, very good for seafood!

    Great food, very dog friendly

    We travel with a large golden retriever so we are always on the lookout for restaurants that welcome pets on their patios. O.C. Whites has been one of our favorites for quite a few years. The seafood is excellent, whether it is fried or grilled (the grouper especially) and the sides are also very tempting. They are very nice to your dog, bringing water in a bowl to your table, and always giving them a few kind words and a pet. All three of us highly recommend this restaurant. It has a great view of marina too.
