Nice stop to pass the time

Nice stop to pass the time while in Downtown Jacksonville. It is a nice touch to the San Marco area that wasn't there years ago.

This was our first time walking along the newly constructed south-bank river-walk and we both very much enjoyed it. While the old river-walk was made of wood, this one is made of concrete and colorful brick pavers. Lots of places to sit and enjoy the view of the river; some with overhangs to shade you from the sun. The north-bank... More

I enjoyed an evening eating outside on water and listening to music. Nice are to walk around. Ther are a few places to eat and drink. I did not stay late due to going to a concert. It may be a spot for young people later.

Now that they have most of the construction done on the one side it's really a lot better. The view and watching the river and the boats is just beautiful and the restaurant's are good - we really enjoyed the American Grill, the service was awesome and the food was really good. It's a nice couples place to go, not... More

We had a very nice meal at the Riverwalk Restaurant, the wait staff was very friendly and offered great service. The water views from our table were wonderful. A great place to eat while visiting Jacksonville!!

I absolutely love walking the "riverwalk." It's a beautiful walk literally next to the water on the st. John's river, which at points during the walk the water level will be at shoulder level next to you. It also features a huge colorful fountain, Friendship Fountain and several restaurants, a water taxi that takes you from one side of the... More

We visited this river walk and we where very disappointed. It's deserted and has nothing going on. Many people used it for a walking track or dog walk but we thought it was like other river walks with shops and restaurants very disappointing.

The new Southbank River Walk is absolutely stunning! You must see it. Great job by all of those involved in the planning and execution. Besides all that, it was done in record time! It’s wide, it’s solid and it will accommodate walkers, runners, dog walkers of just a wonderful stroll by our great river with the City skyline in the... More
