“Eat, Drink and Be Irish!”
The site where Meehan’s sits was originally used for construction storage during the building of the infamous Castillo de San Marcos (located just 150 feet North of the restaurant). The building that is now Meehan’s was once the private home of William Diskmuits, and was built in 1917 according to historical records. We have since found photographic evidence that the building was built prior to a devastating fire in 1914 that took out the entire bay front. The damage may have been so extensive that the home was re-built and thus the records show that it was built in 1917. Mr. Diskmuits was the first president of the First Florida National Bank. Mrs. Diskmuits is one of the reasons that St. Augustine still has it’s coquina City Gates. The city was going to tear down the gates in the name of progress. The women’s preservation group that Mrs Diskmuits was a member of, protested against this action and stopped the city from tearing down the gates. Most recently, Meehans’ was known as Tavern On The Bay. Stop in to see all of the great enhancements we’ve done to this perfect location on the waterfront in St. Augustine, Florida.
We came here for drinks on New Years Eve and it was packed! But the service was good considering there was a crowd of people about 4 persons deep surrounding the bar. We came back the next day to eat dinner. My husband got oyster and said they were delicious and I got a burger and fries. My burger and the bun were burned. I ate 2 bites of the burger and couldn't eat the rest. My husband thought I was making a big deal about it and took a bit and said "That tastes just like charcoal". The garlic fries were delicious though. The place was packed again and we had waited 45 minutes for a table, 20 minutes to order and another 30ish minutes to get our food so when our server came back, he asked if I wanted another burger, I just said no because I didn't want to wait around another 30 minutes. They took it off the bill though. I've never returned food or asked for something to be taken off the bill in my life, that was the first time but the burger and bun were literally black. So food was hit or miss. Bar was quick through with our drinks, just food was backed up.
