It's very laid back and beachy. TVs are all over the place. The place is very bright and decorated... read more

If your going during Thursday-Sunday your going to need to bike or walk. Parking is tight with Mellow Mushroom right beside it, local hang out. It is a great location, beautifully designed. Eat here often. Mixed reviews each time. Food doesn't look like main photo above or photos on menu. Portions much smaller. How do you let people smoke on... More

Stopped for lunch: great food, great prices and wonderful view from the top deck! Our server was top notch, she didn't hover but was there when we needed her. Will definitely stop again for more sushi!

Tasty food, great service, comfortable dining room. While visiting the area for The Players Championship we decided to try the Fiod Shack and were not disappointed. Great guacamole, fresh sushi rolls and tempting desserts. Would visit again!!

We went to the Jax Beach location after visiting the St. Augustine Beach location (Which was amazing and sooo good) We got the same order that we got in St. Augustine. The food was dry, overcooked, cold, and not good at all. Didn't taste like the other location at all!!! A total waste of $60 for 2 adults and a... More

Good food and service in an informal atmosphere, with a nice side porch. The menu is varied with burgers, chicken, tacos, sushi, and a variety of salad bowls, along with more robust entrees. I had the fried grouper taco which worked perfectly for me. My wife enjoyed the shrimp taco while my son and daughter in law each devoured a... More

Thanks Layna, you made our meal. Once again we searched out oysters. We ordered them on Wednesday and they were excellent! We returned on Thursday for their half price oyster special and they were much smaller and less meaty. The calamari was fresh & the sushi was very good. The huge fish tank is a must see as it was...

Shared several appetizers consisting of steamed oysters, sushi rolls, cheese dip And a final one I don't remember. All portions were good and tasty. Forgot what we ordered for mains but they were really good. Food has always been good here, highly recommend.
