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.

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
