“We LOVE this restaurant! Five Stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We love this place! Blue Fish not only serves fabulous, fresh food, but the proprietor is insanely charming and they are great to dogs! We love our dogs like family, and they treated them as such. We can't wait to go back soon and bask in the pleasure of amazing food and friendly service!

“Blue Hoo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Went there with a group which may have been the reason for the problems. Slow service, slow food preparation and had to ask for the check. Food was acceptable. I had a Tuna sandwich for lunch. It was a large piece of tuna but very stringy. Another person sent his cod sandwich back since it was raw. Another person did not receive their meal and was told the waiter miss counted the number of tuna sandwiches. Other people said their food was good.

“Great Happy Hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Stopped in for a quick drink and a bite and ended up staying for a couple of hours. Happy hour starts early and last until 7pm. The happy hour food menu had oysters on the half shell for 50 cents or a dozen for $6. The drinks were reasonably priced. The ladies enjoyed the lemon drop martinis. Parking is on the side of the building but I'd recommend you go early because it filled up quick.

“Wide open treasure and the best food & drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The Blue Fish is always busy and why not? It has everything going for it. The owner is also a long-time chef and restaurateur in Jacksonville. He manages all the details well, hires the best staff, creates a great atmosphere and keeps the menu fresh and the bar packed. I have been there a number of times and it is one of the city’s destinations of choice in Jacksonville for my wife and me.

“Great choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Good food and Good service. They have a nice menu where you can choose your fish and how it is prepared. They also have a steak or two and some pasta dishes. There is a nice patio some of which is covered which is enjoyable when the weather permits. Outside seating is much quieter and has a nice fountain. They also have the option of small plates or regular entree size portions which makes it perfect for a nice meal even if you don't want to have something too heavy.
