“Excellent Lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

I stopped by here for lunch on a Friday. Only a few tables were occupied, as it seems to be more of a dinner place. The staff were all friendly and the manager told me about all of the unique dishes they offered. I enjoyed a local beer and shrimp and grits. The portions were generous - I often expect small plates at places like this. The shrimp and sausage both had great flavor. I would order the dish again! I also enjoyed their peanut butter and jelly cheesecake, though I think I could've done without the jelly in it. Worth a try in my book!

“Excellent when we were there!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

My wife had a so - so lunch about 10 months ago. The reviews are all over the place. We went with friends at their suggestion and all of us had had a great meal. I had calamari as an appetizer and it met the standards of some of the best I have had in North America. My entrée was Shrimp and grits. While a little different than traditional Shrimp and Grits, it was outstanding. All in our party enjoyed their meals as much as I did. Our waitress was inexperienced but through and polite.
I do want the owners to get some regular coffee pots. A restaurant like this shouldn't be bringing coffee to a table of four one cop at a time since they only had a Kurig.
The price was in the $25 dollar and up for entrées. However the quality and quantity was worth it. I just hope I have the same experience when we go back.

“Consistent Quality New Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I ate here about a year ago on a previous visit to Jacksonville. I don't remember the food we ate but I recall specifically it was high quality and savory so I was excited when my friend suggested we return. We sat at the bar where the service was not as solid as one would expect. However, look for the gifts and they will be found. The bartender snagged the wrong salads and brought the beet to me and ham and bean to my friend. We both delighted in the misdeliveries - the beets were accompanied by delicious orange slices and goat cheese. The perfectly cured ham went down well considering I avoid all meet except fish. The "small" plates where hearty sized and quite filling. Next we delighted with the cauliflower head (yes an entire head of cruciferous goodness) that we ladled with a cheese sauce the consistency of thin hummus. By the time dinner arrived bellies were tightening. We made room for the catch of the day. Each of us ordered a different preparation of the maji-maji (fish arrives fresh daily). This was the most fish I have seen on my plate in a long time. My Pontchartrain version rested on top of a perfectly cooked slab of corn bread (crusty on the outside and soft on the inside but never mushy) and the sweet corn sauce rocked. We followed it with a nice blueberry bread pudding that would have been better with a little bigger portion. It was however by no means small. Throughout the evening we received the attention of the owners and the chef. The salad mistakes were removed from our bill and one of the salads we had ordered was delivered nonetheless so we could taste its goodness. We heard the stories of discovering new ways to continue to make the dinning experience at Good Food farm to table. The owners and chef are excited about food, how their guests experience it and they are willing to accommodate when expectations are not initially met. The quality of the food they did deliver was exceptional and I would come back just to chat with the folks who make it happen. At the end of the day, when we learned about how they deliver perfectly cured meats, original sauces and dressings, and fish to the table, I said to myself glad we don't have to do all the leg work no one every sees and that most take for granted. When you visit ask for the chef to visit - you'll see and hear the care that goes into the preparation.

“Not so "GOOD"....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

We sat at the bar after work on a week night. Only one other patron. He was ordering off a special bourbon menu we had to get ourselves. Our attempts to engage the bartender went un noticed. We were not told of the happy hour...nor were we told of items they were out off until we ordered them...no oysters, no countty pate (which we were not even told about) I ordered the mezzo and had to ask what was on it and if the pate was missing.. To be honest the cured meat was more like some kind of "jerky" that was run through a mandoline into ribbons. The seared scallops were wet and just average. Even with a groupon or other food deal i would save money.I suggest you drive into Atlantic beach and go to MAZA!

“Hand crafted food - One of the Best places in Jax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Have eaten here a number of times and I am always impressed. Chef Steve takes real pride in his craft and the food quality is top notch before he even transforms it into his culinary masterpieces. Charcuterie is cured in house and steaks aged in house. Prices very reasonable especially considering quality and that most entrees come with sides. The crab dip had loads of real lump crab, and the chef created my own sauce for my perfectly dry aged ribeye to my request and liking. Menu is varied and intriguing for all tastes. Wine prices are very reasonable for a restaurant of this caliber.
