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

Was there in early May with an Open Book check. Sat at the bar and enjoyed cocktails and these really great chips on the apps menu. Server was great. Took a table in the outside courtyard. Had the baked brie and blue point oysters for an app. Both were awesome. Brie was done to perfection and oyster were some of... More

Great atmosphere, great service. Went twice when guests came to town and it was their favorite restaurant we took them to. Happy hour is great! $6 dozen oysters?! And lots of other food and drink specials. Highly recommend!

Blue Fish, located in a popular neighborhood shopping area, seems to have done things right by delivering great seafood in a trendy (but amazingly LOUD) atmosphere but why do our visits (and yes, there have been multiple) always go awry? First, being able to be seated in a more desirable window area is, it appears, at the whim of the... More

Acoustics are an issue here! Incredibly loud and hard to hold a normal conversation with the person sitting next to you or for that matter across from me. Service was good, managing staff were attentive. The food needs some improvement. The oysters were fresh. Scallops were over cooked. The medium rare steak came out crusted burnt exterior. The tables outside... More

The dining room is stylish if a bit noisy, especially on a Saturday night when our family group of 10 ate there. Our server was top notch. We sampled Oysters Rockefeller, which were worthwhile, but not the best I've eaten. Several ate a fresh fish, prepared in different ways from an extensive style choice offered at this restaurant. Three of... More

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.
