I have always shopped at Safe Harbor for my seafood, because it is ALWAYS fresh. I have always wanted to eat there, but never seemed to have the time. Well, on this visit, my wife wanted to be some fish for dinner, but she decided to have the family eat in the restaurant instead of cooking tonight and boy, was... More

All of these glowing reviews are right. My daughter & I shared baskets with scallops & fish. The blackened snapper was perfect and plentiful. The grilled scallops were OMG tasty and huge. My son ordered a kids meal of grilled shrimp and it was plentiful and good. Then we decided to try the crab cakes. We took about 2 bites... More

Holy cow is this place a treat! The magicians in the kitchen will cook you up a meal that you won't easily forget and won't hurt much in the wallet either. We were four of us and basically ordered everything on the menu. I have to say the alligator was my absolute favorite, I'm depressed I can't get any up... More

Food was excellent Oysters, Grouper and shrimp. Took my sister who is from Washington, DC and eats lots of Chesapeake seafood and she raved about the quality and taste. I have lived up in the Maine area which is renowned for its fresh seafood and lobster and this restaurant is comparable and even list right up on the scale with... More

This is a delightful sea-side restaurant serving both locally caught and imported sea-foods. The service was fast and the food deliciously prepared as you request it (blackened, grilled, etc.). Seating on the deck watching the fishing boats come and go added to the experience. They also sell a very large variety of fresh sea foods. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Great food! Very flexible with orders, my experience says if you would like something specific ask (for example, my children don't like fried foods so they made the kids baskets with grilled fish instead of fried) and they generally will accommodate if they can. Great service! Asked for things from the buser's/runners, and they didn't miss a beat... prompt, courteous,... More

The super fresh seafood is amazing for a cheap quick bite or to purchase and take home to prepare your way. Not much to the ambiance, but it was much cleaner & nicer experience than I anticipated! We'll be back!!!

Be prepared to stand in line to order food and drinks and then go find a table to sit at. Also be prepared for some of the best seafood you are going to eat. Not fancy, just good. Get the grilled fished, and try the hush puppies. The Mayport shrimp basket is also something that you want to try. Always... More

We ate at Safe Harbor twice during our vacation - it was that good! The second time was not quite as good as we ended up there shortly before closing time (we didn't realize that) and our hush puppies were a little hard (like they'd been sitting there for a while) and my deviled crab (which is THE BEST I've...

If you are in a hurry, don't go. Long lines. However, the seafood is good and you can shop at the same time.
