I live in Jacksonville. I have been here 3 separate times and will not be back again. Food is meh.. Service is less than meh. Too many other choices. On to Captains we go!

Pair that with one of our 12 ounce Rib Eye, Crab Cakes, Baby Back Ribs or Southwestern Chicken and you've got yourself a real meal. Our other specialties and local favorites include our large variety of Burgers, Sandwiches/Wraps, and Fish Tacos. The 'Shack', With its tin roof and wood doors features only fresh Oysters and Shrimp, Fish and Crab Cakes- all cooked to your liking. Our creative chefs have a license to delight.
