“Great little place for seafood in Palm Valley/Ponte Vedra”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Great food along with a beautiful setting along one of the canals - we sat outside and enjoyed the whole experience. Definitely go since the prices are reasonable and the food is really tasty and fresh

“Hard to overcome the hype”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Lunched here with a party of 6 on a Saturday. The place was very near full. The server, Brett, was knowledgeable about the menu and how the food was prepared. Rick's fish soup was substantial and excellent. Avocado salad was very good. Fried green tomato BLT, a special that day, was nothing special. Crab cakes were good but not in anyway surpassing those at O'Steens in St. Augustine or even ones I have had at good restaurants Ohio. Thus, while they were good, I was sorta disappointed because I kinda expected them to be among the best ever. They weren't and a fellow diner from NY felt the same way. The fried foods, whether fish or French fries, were pretty average though well-prepared. They tasted like they do virtually everywhere else. The fish tacos were excellent. Excellent beer selection, good wine selection. Good place to watch people or sporting events on TV. Very pleasant place.

“Ate with the locals”

We had a wonderful dining experience at Palm Valley. The service was great and the food outstanding. All entrees were prepared to our satisfaction and everything was reasonably priced. Overall, a great experience.

“Great Spot, but make a reservation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

This was our second visit to the PVFC - we have gone twice with no reservations and were lucky both times to get a seat at the bar. While we were lucky -- this apparently doesn't always happen. In any case, the food is amazing. This is a cute little restaurant on the inter coastal -- truly has a "fish camp" feel but with upscale touches. They don't have an extensive menu but what they have they do it very well. The portion sizes are big -- my husband and I split the shrimp and grits and we were both full when we left. The grits were perfectly prepared and our server, Frances, even shared her secrets for preparing the PVFC version of the dish at home. On our next visit we will make a reservation so we can sit in the dinning area. Definitely come hungry!

“Spotty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Returned here for the third time in 3 years. Had the broiled platter and most items seemed steamed. The included fish was cod… not exactly a seafood treat. Whites on wine by the glass also seem limited. As has happened in the past, they were already out of the scallop special and the whole fish had changed. We may continue to visit North Beach Fish Camp but unlikely to return to Palm Valley.
