This is a combination seafood restaurant and market. They open at 10:30 in the morning and you stand in a line that early because it is that good. We got there at 4:30 and stood in line for 45 minutes. The seating area is mostly outside but the area is covered and heated. You sit right on the water. I... More

This was a very authentic seafood restaurant. I ordered the grouper and shrimp and it was outstanding. I had a hard choice between the four fish-of-the-day choices, but you can't go wrong with grouper! The scenery is awesome on the river with shrimp boats and other fishing vessels coming and going, just like you would expect a local fish market... More

Straight out of the ocean, onto the docks and to your table. Locally owned, locally served, locally eaten. Try and go during off hours as the line can be out the door. A new location has been opened as of 2-8-16 in Jacksonville Beach. Both restaurants are casual dining, fresh seafood and you are on the water, doesn't get much... More

We all really enjoyed the chowders and Basa Sandwich. The service is very pleasant and the fishing dock area was delightful, a safe harbor!

We have been here several times and never been disappointed. Yes, you will have to stand in line to order, but unless you are here on the weekend at lunchtime, it's not usually a long wait. What you will get in return, is very hot, very fresh food, prepared perfectly. My husband loves the soft shell crab sandwich, and I... More

Here is a place to bring your cooler and pick up some very fresh seafood to take home and prepare. The catches are daily. They will prepare or filet your section to your liking. You can also grab a freshly prepared seafood lunch while you are there. I highly recommend this venue for anyone wanting some fresh seafood to take... More

Visiting from PA and was looking for good seafood with two great friends from Ponte Vedra. Tripadvisor rated this place #1 and I can see why. When we called to ask about the place, the owner Chris Wooten answered with such enthusiasm we just had to go. You walk in and there was a line of people waiting to place... More

I like eating here on a sunny non-summer day. In summer the outdoor seating is too hot (and there is very little indoor seating), but in other seasons the patio is great on a warmer day. The shrimp boats are docked right outside the restaurant, so this is a fun place to take visitors. However, the only reason to come... More

My wife and I visited Safe Harbor this past Sunday after she had go to in the office for the day. We went mid-afternoon and were pleasantly surprised there was no one in line! What a rare treat. (Typically, regardless of the time of day, you generally have to wait in line for up to 90 minutes to place your... More
