I can't believe I waited so long to eat here! I've driven by dozens of times thinking it was only a seafood market. Now that I've eaten there I can't wait to go back. One point: Safe Harbor Seafood is not affiliated with Safe Harbor Academy on Heckscher Drive. They're both great institutions, just not related to each other.

We hadn't been to Safe Harbor in several months, so we took a ride with friends and had a very nice lunch. It's a really scenic drive from Amelia Island with a ferry ride across the river (which cost $6.00 each way), The line to order our food was very short and we were served quickly.The food was very good,...

One of few places where you can eat fresh fish just caught and unloaded off the boats outside. You can choose any fish and they will clean and cook for you or order form the fantastic menu. We always take home some fresh shrimp for later.

Great seafood in the little town of Mayport, Florida. You can get there from the St. Johns River Ferry or from Atlantic Beach and be prepared to wait in line for FRESH SEAFOOD.

If you want fresh seafood caught outside the front door, this restaurant is for you. I chose one of the Luncheon Specials, Blackened Mango Snapper with coleslaw, green beans, and hush puppies and was satisfied the rest of the day! It was a great choice. As we ate on the pier outside the restaurant, we felt like we could touch... More

We ate here because we love their sister restaurant Marker 32. It's tricky to find down a winding road that leads to a large marina where boats and trailers are constantly moving about the dock.The view is amazing as soon as you find a parking spot which is the first of your challenges. As you approach the building there's a... More

Get there before 11:30 forget there after 1:00 or you will stand in line, but it's worth it. This is the freshest seafood I have tasted. They are brining most of it in as you watch, from the boats pulling up. Clean, open space; workers there as you walk down the line telling you everything you need to know about... More

This location has a large seafood market that sells seafood of excellent quality and selection, and the restaurant is usually packed. We decided to try the restaurant and waited 45 minutes in the line to place our order. There is a restaurant line and a seafood market line that casts anything Disney World has ever designed into the shade. I... More

Decided to have an early dinner/late lunch here based upon the reviews. Walked in and noticed a huge counter of fresh fish and I as a little bit confused about how to order lunch there but somebody told me to go around the corner. So you look up and see this big menu with all the selections. My wife wanted... More
