Can't go wrong.

I have been going to Safe Harbor for years. If your looking for a gourmet meal, you picked the wrong place. Looking for some of the best seafood, you got it. Not only to eat there, but to get the freshest seafood from their market. Try those fried Mayport Shrimp and conch fritters. After my meal I... read more

We stopped here to check out the fish in the market (husband is a fisherman) and we stayed for lunch. So glad we did. I had grilled shrimp and they were the best I've ever had. The seasoning was great and they were cooked to perfection. My husband had the deviled crab (3) and they were so-o-o good. Portion size... More

When you first walk in, the atmosphere might throw you off. This is a fish market, but keep on walking to the back counter to order the BEST seafood ever! We had fried shrimp and blackened flounder and both were amazing! We ate on the back patio right on the water. Great views of all the fishing boats. Staff was... More

My hubby and I took our 3 boys here for Valentine's Dinner. We waited close to 45 min or so in a long line through the market and it was worth every minute! One of the employees came a around a few times with fresh fried shrimp to keep the crowd from getting "hangry". The prices weren't that bad and... More

I work at this restaurant and i have to say, it's a good place to be at. The food is excellent and the people are wonderful, plus an excellent view of the river and sunsets in the afternoon. U are given an excellent view of the gambling ship, cargo ships and even rumored the cruise ship coming by occasionally.

What can you say about a working seafood market that doubles as a restaurant? Fresh. Boats are docking and unloading, Fishmongers are actively scaling and cleaning fish, cooks are expertly preparing fresh seafood to order. Safe Harbor is the definitive source for Jacksonville area restaurants and consumers who will not compromise quality. Go during late December through February to ensure... More

While staying at the Ocean One Resort we ventured to the Safe Harbor Seafood for dinner. It was excellent and our service was outstanding! We highly recommend this place.

Awesome casual setting along the St. John's river. I enjoyed the fresh caught blackened grouper platter with fries, hush puppies and cole slaw. Grouper was cooked to perfection and scrumptious . A generous portion too ! Fries and slaw were basic and good however, the Slaw could use some more flavoring/spices in it's dressing.
