Still not much to look at, but you can't beat the fresh seafood.

We always enjoy Safe Harbor. We ring family and friends from out of town and are never disappointed. If you go during the traditional meal times, you risk a long line... but the food is worth it. Get the local baskets, they are worth the price. Love the Mayport shrimp and the grouper. I get the... read more

I go for lunch many times a month. The line looks long but moves fast! Do not be discouraged by the parking lot being full, I think the Casino boat overflows. I had the Grilled Grouper sandwich. Huge Sandwich! I had to eat some of the fish with a fork to make it manageable. Comes with crisp fries in a... More

I do not usually eat at safe harbor but when I do it is very good. Mostly I go there to but fresh caught local seafood for home preparation. The best Mayport shrimp on earth. Great Snapper and Grouper. Great oysters, etc... It is about a 30 minute drive but we love it. It is so cool to have such... More

If you like seafood - this place is a must! We went on a Friday evening (Spring break) and the line was quite long about 40 min wait BUT they walk around with "samples" and you are able to get a drink. We had the bang bang shrimp, fried shrimp, shrimp & grits --- every morsel DELISH! I wish we... More

If you like fancy, this is not the place for you. However, if what's important to you is that the food is fresh and delicious, this is your place. We cannot believe we haven't come here before. Friends had been telling us great things about this place for 11 years now. The seafood is amazingly fresh and if you eat... More

This was such a great experience! Walking through the door you realize that you're going to have a great meal. There is fresh seafood EVERYWHERE! The market portion is really great with a wide variety of fish, shellfish and pre-made items to go. Most of the items are coming off of the boats in the marina behind the market. You... More

Recommend the Blackened Grouper on the Caesar Salad. We also buy all of our local caught mayport shrimp here. Can't beat either the freshness or the price.

No way at lunch. 30 min in line with one person taking orders. There had to be a better way. Then the food took another 30. It was fresh but not worth the horrible wait.

Freshest catch in JAX, not pretty but worth a trip to Mayort. Order the grouper and you won't be disappointed. Period!
