Some of the food was above average... My trout and my husband's scallops. The other food was average, my husband's shrimp and his fish. What was below average were the acoustics. It was had to hold a normal conversation.

This is a well managed restaurant that it is a pleasure to visit on all counts, and prices are reasonable. We enjoyed the excellent varied appetizers. It was very crowded but the staff performed perfectly. We will return.

After a long day of shopping and errands on Friday we "Yelped" seafood restaurants and decided to give the Blue Fish a try. While the bar area was crowded with folks enjoying Happy hour, there were plenty of tables available, and we were seated right away. The service was crisp. Our waiter was very attentive and happily answered our questions... More

We had 5:30 PM reservations last Saturday after we saw a matinee play in Jacksonville. We have eaten here before and enjoyed it. Having 5:30 PM reservations meant that it was early enough not to be to crowded at the restaurant. When we arrived at the restaurant their parking lot was full which was surprising since it was only 5:15PM.... More

I'm not big into screaming across the table, and this place was packed when we went. Food was fun and interesting. Decor was OK. Waiter was great.

The Avondale area of Jacksonville has many restaurants to choose from as does the Riverside and Five Points area just down the street. So one would assume that if you are a seafood restaurant in a coastal town like Jacksonville and are in an area known for good food, the seafood at The Blue Fish would be very good. And,... More

Party of 5 and above all else the service was very slow. 4 of the 5 in the group not happy. There 4 of 5 had oysters and they thought they were great. Crab cakes were good as appetizers. Not sure how to comment on the scallops and shrimp over truffled mac and chees, that one's still up for debate.... More
