Happy hour a steal!

Great food and drink menus for happy hour - every day 3-5. Food - stick to the shucked oyster - raw or steamed or the pei mussels with grilled bread. By far the best and good price point for the food and portion size. Good domestic, premium, draft beer and wine selection at good prices. Nice... read more

The place was loud and I could barely hear the people at my table. I enjoyed the grouper with rice and beans, good meal. Lauren was our waitress and was wonderful! Would recommend sitting outside or not going during happy hour because the sound vibrates throughout the place.

This place is amazing! It's got great food, friendly staff, and an amazing happy hour! I love the decor… It's bright, airy, and open with plenty of outdoor seating both in front of the restaurant and on the back patio. Freshest fish and oysters!

One of the worst meals we've had in Jacksonville. Avondale is a great neighborhood with several good restaurants so it's surprising how poor this restaurant was. There were four of us and everyone's meal was terrible. We all ordered different entrees. Food was cold, completely unseasoned, and poor presentation. I write many positive reviews for restaurants we enjoy, but this... More

The bar-tender was not on duty but made me sangria anyway. The oysters were big and fresh. Crab cakes were delicious. They were kind to my dog, bringing her a big bowl of ice water. I'd love to go back dog-less and eat inside because it was beautiful and simple. Our waitress was super attentive (in a good way). The... More

If you are visiting Jacksonville do not miss this spot. It is in Avondale surrounded by beautiful houses with a diversity of architectural styles so plan a stroll through the neighborhood. It is worth your while! The service is very corteous and nice. Oysters as fresh and good as they get anywhere in the southeast. Blackened tuna and other fish... More

Stopped in while wandering the great homes in the surrounding neighborhood. Hubby ate here recently for business and wanted me to experience it too. We started with each having the special oyster plate which was 2 each of 3 kinds of oysters. They were plump, cold and sweet. Next we had a cup of the incredible crab soup for me,... More

The Blue Fish is a gem of a find in the wonderfully trendy Avondale neighborhood of Jacksonville. Our group of four had great meals at the tail-end of Happy Hour on a Saturday evening. Three of us ordered seafood items from the regular menu BUT I ate three orders of oysters on the half-she'll as my dinner. The oysters were... More
