I get the basket with 3 choices (octopus, mahi mahi and calamari) 18 dollars, the mahi mahi grilled was pretty tasty but the calamari and octopus was not good; DOn (my other half) didn't like his food (the batter was too thick )

Stopped in for lunch with associates on the last day of a trip. Others had raved about the place, as well as the long lines, for the last few days so I decided to give it a try. Though I was disappointed that they had ran out of the fresh Trigger Fish and Conch Fritters what I had was incredibly... More

Fish 'shack' worth seeking out. Eat inside in a/c; outside on picnic tables on the covered porch. Ceiling fans and always good breeze keep outside comfortable. Fast service. Enjoyable to watch boats coming by.

Stopped here during a trip across the Mayport Ferry and it was great! The line was really long and it took us about 20 minutes to order. Once we did, we were given a number and we sat down outside overlooking the river. Only had to wait 5-7 minutes for our food to arrive. The coleslaw was just okay. The... More

An unusual place (but in a good way!), in that you line up in the seafood market, can pick out any items on display to be cooked for your meal, if you'd like, or just order from the menu board (order and pay, then find a table). Fish tacos were good, and I'm not really a fish taco person. Nice... More

They are located very near the back gate of the Navy Base. We heard from several friends that it was worth the time to stop in. Great for lunch or dinner. It was another mid week stop for us and we were not disappointed. They have a great market as well. You queue up, check out the menu boards, place... More

It's been almost 12 months since we last visit Safe Harbor Seafood, not because I didn't want to but because it's long drive. The seafood here is one of the best I believe in Jacksonville, FL. I mean how much more fresh can you get, when they have the food right there from the gulf. I had the Cod fish... More

I love to go here with out-of-town visitors and local friends. Since it's also a great seafood market you can get a good look at what you might be ordering while waiting in line. The grilled scallops and hush puppies are my favorites. This St. John's River Mayport Village location is in a unique area where there is a lot... More

We go once every two weeks and I never had anything bad here. Blackened grilled or fried it's all good. The baskets are the best for the value. I love the claims, shrimp and scallop. The cucumber tomatoes salad is great too if you want to skip the fries. Nice view of the intercostal. Go early before 11:30 to avoid... More

Have made the trek up to Mayport from St Augustine for the past 14 years just to eat here. If you are in the area this is a MUST stop. They have a fish market where everything is fresh off the boat. You can get anything from the market and have the small attached restaurant cook it to order. You... More
