Great stop for lunch

On our way home from a week stay in St. Augustine, we decided to take the scenic route along the coast back to Jacksonville. Stopped at Salt Life Food Shack after reading online they had a soft shell crab blt on the menu, which convinced my crab loving daughter to give it a try. We were... read more

We asked the hostest if we should seat ourselves and she responded with "if you want to, or I can" got seated and our server came and started chatting with us like we were long lost friends.

Knew we had to go just by looking at the menu online. It didn't dissappoint. My husband and I both had the mahi poke bowl. It was delicious! We will have to go back before our vacation is over. There were so many other things I wanted to try. Our waitress , Anna, was terrific! Great place!

Wednesday night, and seated immediately outside (nothing to look at except a parking lot). Calamari appetizer was pretty good, and the fresh catch of the day (Mahi) was good. The service was fine.

Following reviews and the advice of our concierge, we visited for dinner while in Jacksonville Beach for the PGA tournament. We brought our 3 year old son, and the atmosphere (and fish tank) were great for a family. I wish I could say the same about the food. We had the raw oysters (the only good thing we were served)...

This is a nice place in Jacksonville beach area. The food is good – but the quality is inconsistent: the first time we ate there it was very good, so we came again but the second time the food was average. The atmosphere is very nice, the restaurant is very big with different sitting areas. Although there were a lot... More

Food was good but not exceptional. The place itself was fun and inviting. A nice hang out with friends if you can sit outside on the patio. I would go back and try it again. The margarita was yummy.
