Will visit again

Since beginning a new job in Orange Park in February, we have visited Whitey's Fish Camp. We have enjoyed the food during each visit but some times the service has been a little slow during peak hours. Worth the wait.

Dock your boat, and have lunch or dinner. The place is large, they have live music at night and it is packed on Friday and Saturday. The food is ok, The drinks are decent.

Whitey's Fish Camp is not a highbrow experience. You do not need to dress up or put your pinkie out while you sip your tea. The portions are generous and the food is tasty. You will not go broke either. I have always eaten inside the restaurant because I do not like bugs circling around my food, but the patio... More

I stopped here for dinner. It was a gorgeous evening, so we sat on the dock. I ordered the gator bites for an appetizer and they were good. For dinner, I ate the blackened mahi mahi and scallops. The dudes were black-eyed peas and collard greens. It all was good. Service was good too.

I took my friends from work, they believe how the fish taste with flavor without the hot sauce, the breaded seasoning was perfect. The atmosphere is very family oriented, and they have a spot where to seated dnext to the water with a cool breeze with a cool liquid drink, or just sweet southern style sweet tea. I go there...

Great place for not only fish but landlubbers can enjoy several items on the menu. My family tried alligator tail, most enjoyed it. They had great dinner special that was surf and turf that most loved, just a little pricey. The place reminds me many restaurants on the beach in both Florida and New Jersey. If you go, bring your...

Took the Wife and Daughter for dinner. We have been here many times. Once again the service was pleasant and quick. The food was great. I ordered for the first time the 14oz blackangus steak.
