This night was a special offering for the 4th, with valet parking & a short walk to the beach to view the fireworks!! We were fortunate find a place at the bar, so we could socialize and have a view of the open fire hearth, used for cooking! Martha, as always, was a friendly and attentive bartender and server! We...

Casually elegant décor. Comfortable chairs. Attentive but not pushy service. First truly outstanding bar cocktail(sidecar) I've had in Jacksonville. The fried oyster appetizer was good. The crab salad/fried mozzarella was amazingly good. My ribeye steak was perfectly done and too large to finish. Only cons were: the wines by the glass are mediocre and overpriced, and the air conditioning results... More

I've enjoyed Eleven South a few times. It has always provided great food and service. It's a dressy casual place with a relaxing atmosphere. Great wine list and drink options.

I am absolutely disgusted with this restaurant right now and vow to never go back. The last two visits have ended horribly. Last month, I met a friend there for dinner. I arrived early and decided to have a glass of wine at the bar. The moment the bartender poured the wine, I knew it was bad (smell). I tasted... More

Let me start by saying that when I made the reservation I had no idea this restaurant was as fancy as it was. We had 2 teenagers with us who eat mostly hamburgers. The hostess seated us inside and it was a bit noisy and they had no problem moving us out to the covered patio. Our server Stephen, was... More

I have lived in the Jax area for 12 years and have had a lot of excellent meals, but the one I had at Eleven South ranks as one of the best! I had a veal chop that was absolutely delicious. But, everything was exceptional. Even the bread was amazingly good (fresh and crusty). The service was very professional and... More

Mt sister and I had a fabulous scallop meal. One of the best I have had this year. The ambiance is soothing and our service was outstanding. I will dine here when ever I am in town.

I have been to this restaurant twice so far and love it. It's one of the only really nice restaurants in Jacksonville Beach. The food both times was great and the service is top notch. Love this place and will keep coming back.

Very good dining experience. Sat on the patio. Food (snapper) was good but not up to ESB's usual standards. Friends loved theirs. Excellent service. Desert, however, was a mess. It was billed as "cinnamon beignets." Don't be fooled. These were stale donut holes from Publix. Just awful, and nothing even resembling a beignet. I probably should have just sent it... More

I went here with some friends to celebrate especial occasion; I wish I hadn't! The initial greeting was somewhat "puke-warm" and the general ambience in the restaurant was a little stuffy. The waiter initially seemed quite friendly, and regaled us with his alleged golfing prowess whilst he took our orders - fine. The food was quite nice, and well presented.... More
