The Mossfire Grill, located in a prime area, is a rare southwest cuisine in Jacksonville. The place is large with friendly staff. The menu is diverse and looks delicious but the quality is sometimes (often) lacking. Not terrible, just not as good as it can be. As a local, I'd like to see them step up their game to become...

I was taken to the Mossfire Grill in Jacksonville, FL for my birthday and everything was great. The restaurant was clean, people were friendly and a young lady met us at the door and seated immediately. I had the meatloaf dish that comes with mushroom gravy mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley. I couldn't wait!! I started eating my much... More

The Mossfire Grill is celebrating its 16th anniversary, at least according to the sign outside the entrance. I ate there for lunch and had the grilled mahi special with a pesto sauce. The fish was cooked a tad too long but it was not tough and combined with the sauce, it was delicious! I would definitely go back. The service... More

The menu has great selection of margaritas and tequilas all at reasonable prices. Personally, I had the floridas best margarita and it was suburb. Good portion on the margarita too (pint glass full). Had a nice patio either out front or upstairs for summer evenings. The salsa at this joint rocks as well! I ate the Ka pow (I think... More

Stopped here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. I had the Fish Tacos with tuna and my wife had the burger. Both prepared well although a little disappointed in the store bought tortillas (they offer crunchy or soft on their taco selection - I chose soft) but overall a good bite. Ordered the Spinach Queso beforehand and really liked their... More

Decided to go out for lunch today at work. Called Mossfire and ordered a black-bean burger to go and eat it by the river. Trying not to eat so much red meat lately so I tried the black-bean burger, It was very different since it was not "meat". But it had guacamole, lettuce, tomato, and a special sauce. I would... More

I eat here on occasion and every time, without fail, the food is delicious and arrives pretty quickly. The wait staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in making recommendations. I have a light appetite so I always get the Gouda quesadillas with chicken and caramelized onions with an apple butter dipping sauce that has just a little kick. Yum!

Love their southwest hummus, crab cake sandwhich and shrimp tacos. Nice little deck upstairs for a relaxing lunch or after work drink to socialize with friends.

This was our second visit to Mossfire because I want it so bad to be awesome! I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich hoping that this simple dish would be satisfactory...no so much. It was drenched in sauce and the guacamole was dark brown. Too messy to eat as presented. My husband ordered the chicken quesadillas which was better. I must... More

Mossfire Grill has been a Riverside restaurant for as long as I can remember. It is reliable and tasty. I recently went on a Sunday and discovered their brunch menu. It was delightful and can't wait to enjoy again. Love their tequilla selection and Happy Hour pricing. Sit upstairs and outside for a great leisurely time.
