Southern Table Hospitality, owners of North Beach, Palm Valley and Julington Creek Fish Camps, will add a fourth location in downtown St. Augustine by mid-January, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.
Ben and Liza Groshell own the restaurants. In addition to the fish camps, they own Marker 32 at 14549 Beach Blvd. along the Intracoastal Waterway and Valley Smoke Restaurant at 11 S. Roscoe Blvd. in Ponte Vedra Beach.
The restaurant is planned along the San Sebastian River, down the street from the St. Augustine Distillery and Ice Plant Bar. Eric Williams, director of operations for Southern Table Hospitality, said the restaurant will be in an ideal location, given the development around it, and because it sits next to a working dock.
“When you’re sitting outside, having dinner, having drinks, you’re going to see the shrimp boats coming in and out,” Williams said.
He said there also is ample parking, which can be difficult to find in downtown St. Augustine.
