Mangroves is tucked away in the corner of a plaza which makes it hard for the naked eye to spot. It is run singularly by a local man who is responsible for all the cooking and service. The owner is very pleasant and an excellent chef. Everything I tasted was, well, tasty. The crab bisque is perrfect. Chips and salsa are fresh -- chips are warm and salsa is freshly made. I had the crabcake sandwich. It is easy for many restaurants to screw up a crab cake, but this was great. Eaten with homemade sauce. The Peterbrooke chocolate-dipped key lime cheesecake tops off a meal. Deli style dining featuring work by local artists. Now features outdoor seating. Closed on weekends, but the owner can be found along with his food at Riverside Arts Market on Saturdays.

Have been to Mangroves many times for lunch. I really like the Cuban sandwich with black beans and rice. I have tried a couple of other things but always go back to the Cuban. There is very little atmosphere and sometimes the food is slow to come out. They do serve beer and wine.

Prepared with care and quality. The salmon salad was wonderful. The chef does a great job. I highly recommend this place.

The menu was far more limited than the version we found online. This felt like a takeout place with possibility for eating in, since one orders at the counter. The interior felt austere. We decided to go next door for a more aesthetically appealing meal.

Had the grilled fish with rice,black beans, and veggies and I was not disappointed! I came after reading the reviews on trip advisor and they did not lie. When visiting or if you live in Ponte Vedra this is the place to come for a healthy and well-seasoned meal.
