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.

We went here on a Tuesday - which is when they have great deals on sushi and wine. The sushi was good! Wish there were a few more options for their rolls, but they were tasty. I got a crunchy roll that had tempura and it was very good. Cute outdoor seating area.

Thoroughly enjoyed my grilled mahi sandwich in this casual, contemporary seafood restaurant. Creative menu offering sushi and grilled, blackened or fried seafood. Nice wine selection and appreciated the half price special. Server was knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive despite how busy the restaurant was on a Saturday night. Salt Life Food Shack is a definite must when in... More

Place was crowded with a wait. We had to sit right next to another party so close we could share drinks if we weren't careful. Hamburgers were just average and water had a strange taste. Friendly staff , but if your looking for great food, there is other choices nearby. They need to step up their game with the quality... More

Went for lunch and enjoyed the casual dining experience. Had the mahi poke bowl - very tasty. The servers did a good job - they checked on us periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. We didn't feel rushed.

My sister and I decided to eat here last Saturday night in our continued quest to try different seafood restaurants in JAX BCH and the other local beaches. We decided to eat on the veranda despite the torrential rains. Luckily we chose our seat wisely unlike some other dinners who got wet. We split the Wicked Tuna Tostado as an... More

Loved the atmosphere, our service was great, and the food was good. The wicked tuna tostadas and Hawaiian shrimp bowl were delicious. Tacos, burger, and key lime bar were good- not great.
