Great meal

Casual waterside seafood market and restaurant . Outstanding meal of very fresh food. Al fresco dining waterside, invites lingering watching boats and wildlife. A perfect afternoon respite.

We stopped on a sunny Saturday afternoon - it was packed with a long line of people waiting to order. It was a hard choice with so many great sounding offerings. The Seafood Nachos can easily be a meal for two. The Mayport Shrimp were some of the best shrimp I have ever had - blackened just right. Once you... More

We always make it a point to stop while visiting the Jacksonville area to hit a couple of seafood restaruants and usually end up at Singleton's in Mayport. We often times would stop on our way a purchase fresh fish and shrimp form Safe Harbor Seafood Market, but have never eaten there....until the other night. WOW, Not only to they... More

Listen, do you want shrimp so fresh that you have to eat it sitting next to the boat that caught the shrimp a few hours ago? ... then just stand in the line. I know it goes all the way across to the other side of the building. Stand in it. It will move quicker than you think, I promise!!... More

My wife and I drove over from the panhandle for a short three day vacation and enjoyed lunch at Safe Harbor on April 8. Weekdays the fish market/restaurant closes at 6pm so during the week they're only open for lunch or a very early dinner. On Friday and Saturday nights they are open til 8. My wife had the blackened... More

Safe Harbor was amazing! I ordered the grilled triggerfish after the recommendation of a SH employee and it was one of the best fish entrees I've ever had. The blackened shrimp and hush puppies were outstanding as well. It was fun to eat while watching the fishing boats return with their catch. We will definitely be back!

On the Eastern Shore there is a saying for a poorly prepared crabcake, " t'wernt a thimble full of crab in that cake". This restaurant is actually in Mayport and is a seafood retailer as well. the cakes were all filler and not tasty at all. the fries were basic frozen ff's and under cooked. I do not think this...

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 grouper grilled, but it... 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
