“Loved it, will go again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Perfect atmosphere for this Kansas girl! Food was very delicious! Loved looking around the seafood market at all of the seafood. Highly recommend...we took the ferry from the south end of Amelia Island....perfect trip and was worth it for the great food and atmosphere!

“Absolutely the best fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Picked this place based on tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Sit outside if you can -- it's a beautiful view. We stopped for lunch and had a hard time deciding which as so many things sounded great. It's also fun to look at the fish for sale--we were sorry we were staying in a hotel and couldn't take some home to cook. We all had the fish baskets, one shrimp and clams, one shrimp, and one scallops and crab cake. Hands down, these were the best scallops I have ever had. Sides - and french fries, close slaw, and hush puppies come with the basket -- are also plentiful.

“Food Overcooked”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

This was our first visit(on our Anniversary), and our last. We both got the oyster basket with fries and coleslaw. The orysters were overcooked and dry, the fries were cooked almost crisp and the hushpuppies were dry and over cooked. The only thing not overcooked was the coleslaw.

“Great place for a quick lunch if on A1A”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We were traveling on A1A and happened across Safe Harbor. It is a seafood market with a restaurant within. While the line was extremely long, the staff took orders quickly. It did take 20-25 minutes for our food to be prepared (but they had a sign clearly posted to "warn" us of the wait). A wide variety of menu items, reasonably priced, including sandwiches which come with fries, several appetizer items (some of which can be entrees themselves). If you want, you can also purchase items from the market and they will cook them for you ($2 per pound extra).

Once you place your order, you can seat yourself and staff will bring you your order.

I had the crabcake sandwich and my colleague the shrimp sandwich and we were both pleased with the same. The bread/sandwich roll was especially delicious. One of us had sweet potato fries (I recommend skipping them, they were not good) and the other regular fries (which were OK, nothing spectacular), but our sandwiches were good.

Adult beverages are available.

The location is key...the outdoor seating is riverfront and it was a great view of the boats.

Definitely worth stopping in (so long as you are not in a rush)!

“Still the best seafood place in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We can never get tired of this place. I had skipped eating in other seafood place because Safe Harbor had been very consistent in my order. I had a chat with Linda, the owner, who has been so pleasant and accomodating as always. Patsy the counter person has her smiles all the time. The rest of the crew are fantastic.
We feel so at home in this restaurant that when we missed three Saturdays, they all asked what happened to us. As usual I bought 5 lbs of shrimp that was on sale for $3.99/lb. You can not beat the prices. For those who have not tried this restaurant/market, you are missing the best seafood place in town.
