We attended this restaurant as a result of a recommendation from a local. It was during the recent cold snap and seating was plentiful due its open air structure. We were promptly seated under a very warm radiant heater. We were served a delicious glass of chardonnay. Our entrees appeared after a minimal wait. I chose the Peel and Eat... More

Excellent service, we have ate at several seafood restaurants who said seafood was fresh but it turned out not to be. Beachside really does have fresh seafood cooked perfectly, we will definitely be back, best in Jacksonville!

Some of the reviews made me question this place, but I enjoyed it. Shrimp basket with Fries and slaw was $8.99. My hubby had same with added fish fingers for $15.99. I say for fresh seafood that is cheap. Portions were reasonable and the crab dip was good. Picnic style and cozy. It was chilly but the heaters didn't do... More

Location is a screen porch above a seafood shop. Access is up a steep flight of stairs - no handicap access! There are several picnic style tables for up to 6 people each. In the winter there are clear covers over the screens and ceiling mounted heaters. No issues with temperature comfort. Now the important part: the seafood is the... More

There's something just not quite right about this place. You walk up steep steps (don't go if you struggle with stairs) and then it's indoor but outdoor dining - they gave heater bars in the ceiling but they're too hot to sit under! Then plastic knives and forks and thin paper napkins make you feel like you're eating in a... More

Could not believe this restaurants position. Asked the waitress if I could get an order of wings with all drum pieces, she agreed. But, came back a short time later and said, Not Possible? Hm, did not even offer an up-charge to satisfy customer? I would have paid more...alas...no option..my wife had soup.....I had nothing...we paid and left..NEVER to return!

I took two of my friends to the beach while they were visiting me in Jacksonville. We happened upon Beachside because we wanted to go somewhere other than the chain restaurants. It was a cool day so we were excited that they had heated seating. If you sit in the middle of the restaurant, you will roast. If you sit... More

This was just an okay seafood restaurant. Service was very slow and the fare pedestrian at best. Yes, everything is slower at the beach, but over an hour to take orders and serve a small number of people didn't leave us wanting to come back. Selections were limited and I couldn't even get veggies as sides because they only had... More
