Delicious, fresh, tasty, delectable, well seasoned fish and seafood! You have a choice of fried, grilled, or blackened with many of the baskets and sandwiches. I had grilled shrimp and it was full of flavor and perfectly cooked. In fact, it just might be the...More

Family enjoyed Shrimp Tacos, Blackened Shrimp PoBoy Sandwiches and Kids menu of corn pups or grilled cheese, if they don't eat fish. Be prepared for casual outdoor dining only. Near Coast Guard Station and Mayport Naval Base. Lots of ships & seabirds, and fish market.

I could not believe the selection of fresh seafood available here. I am from the Gulf Coast and am used to seeing seafood markets but they just don't have much of a selection any more. But Safe Harbor was awesome. You can select seafood and...More
