Had a delightful meal with the family at Safe Harbor. It's an order at the counter, casual dining experience. The restaurant is clean, there's a lot of seating, and the location on the Intercostal is fitting. As for the food, our party of 9 was more than satisfied with the entire selection (and we pretty much tried it all!). Even... More

When I ordered -- the cooks were able to cook the shrimp with olive oil instead of the normal butter. The cold slaw is made using yogurt = could not eat.

After a long day at the Mayo Clinic, a very refreshing and positive experience at the Safe Harbor Seafood Market. Will definitely return when I'm in Jacksonville again.

Excellent seafood place, where you are paying for the seafood, not the decor. Fresh catch included, on the day we were there: grouper, flounder, trigger, redfish. You could get it grilled, blackened, or fried. You could also get fried or peel-n-eat shrimp. We had a plate of fresh oysters on the halfshell for appetisers. You order at the counter, and... More

The place is both a market and restaurant. Expect a long wait and very casual crowd. It's worth the wait. The menu is short and all sea food. Order at counter and the food is brought to ur table. were group of 8 adults and some kids. Everything we had tasted from good to excellent. Mango snapper special was excellent

The atmosphere is that of a place that sells fish and shrimp and you can buy lunch or dinner. Eating is mostly outside covered over looking the boats and river and a few spots inside. You go for the food not the atmosphere but we always love this place rain or shine because the food is simply simple and good,... More

The restaurant offers inside, inside with the doors open other outside by the water. There is dockage for boats. We did not realize we ate at their sister property yesterday. We were pleasantly surprised Safe Harbors food was just as delicious. You walk up and order your food. They give u a beeper and it locates you so they can... More

I ordered the scallops with the hush puppies and fries. I was visiting friends for the weekend from MN and they brought me here. It was excellent, I would highly recommend anything here. My order was perfect and tasted delish. You are along the coast at the docks with the fishing and shrimping and crabbing boats, it doesnt get more... More

This is our first visit to Jacksonville and since this restaurant had good reviews we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did! We stood in line for about 10 minutes to place our order, then found a place to sit outside (they have limited seating inside). The outdoor seating is ON the water and has... More

Jacksonville's beaches were packed with Blue Angels spectators during a recent visit, and we were searching for local seafood with a view of the water. We got that and more at Safe Harbor Seafood Market and Restaurant in Mayport. Very casual - order at the counter & eat inside or out. We took a corner table literally on the dock... More
