Sitting on the outside deck, watching the ocean and eating delicious seafood can't be beat. Ask for Josh as your server. He was A-one.

The location of this place is fabulous - right on Jax Beach - you can actually access the beach from the outside deck! Food is typical Joes - good, fair priced!

This used to be one of my best seafood places in jax. The quality and quantity of the food seems to have gone done some in the past couple of years. We used to bring groups of 12 to 15 people here

Very good food, cute beach atmosphere, friendly staff. Nice indoor dining area, clean, comfortable. Outdoor seating overlooking the beach, elevated just enough to see over the dunes.
