Wonderfully Fresh Scallops

Having grown up in New Bedford Ma. I was used to the best, fresh scallops there were. So I thought, lets see what I get here. The answer was a great dish of big, blackend scallops at a great price. Go outside and eat on the dock and I'm just very satisfied. A lot of home in Florida. GO!

Great local option, closed on Monday. Ask for daily specials. We had trigger fish. Very casual; place your order, get your drink, take a number and they bring the basket of food. It is about fresh seafood, fairly priced, not about atmosphere, although not bad. ...it is a seafood market. It is on the water with plastic around outdoor area... More

I love seafood and have even worked in several seafood restraunts. I've got to say this is my favorite. The food is freshly caught, prepared, and served generously. I travel to the area often and it has become tradition to eat lunch here on day 1. Already looking forward to my next trip to the area, just for the shrimp... More

Sometimes you question whether the food is as good as you thought it was. So don't think about it any longer,the food here is excellent every single time. So forgo the DDD establishment because this is the spot.

We have been here 3 times and love it. It is very popular and depending on the times you go the line can be out the door and you could be waiting a half an hour or more. My favorite is the scallops but you need to go hungry because you get a huge serving. Love their coleslaw too. For... More

Safe Harbor is one of our favorite places for good food and great atmosphere, if you like to eat out of doors. Eating the best shrimp in Jacksonville ( or just about anywhere) while watching the sunset over the boats on the water is just so relaxing. There is usually a wait ...a considerable line to place your order but... More

It seems wrong to give a full five stars to such an unpretentious restaurant: but the food is worth it. The scallops are the large ones, full of flavor, and perfectly cooked. The oysters are lightly breaded, so the oyster is front and center: not overwhelmed by the breading: and again perfectly cooked. The seafood gumbo is also excellent. We... More

It was really busy when we came on a Tuesday for lunch. All of our food was either fried to death or under fried where the coating did not stick. Nothing was great all just average fried food. Kind of pricey for the quality. It does have a fresh seafood market where you could buy yours and take it home... More

We eat here whenever we are in the Jacksonville area. I had always ordered the shrimp basket platter but after a suggestion from the seafood market I went ahead and purchased a pound of peeled and deveined shrimp and simply paid $2.00 to have the restaurant batter and fry them for me. You get much more shrimp this way and... More
