We just returned from lunch at Seafood Kitchen. From the minute we walked in until we left the staff was friendly and attentive. Our waitress Heather was phenomenal! She brought our drinks immediately. Was ready to answer any questions and checked back with us frequently....Our food was great and came out quickly. My husband had crabmeat au gratin. It is served in a casserole dish and the crabmeat had to have been at least 3/4 inch thick, topped with some of their clam chowder and two different cheeses. Broiled to perfection. He ate about 2/3 and brought the rest home for dinner. I had the “lunch” portion of fried Mayport shrimp, 11 jumbo shrimp butterflied and fried just til done. For sides I had cole slaw (tangy and delicious) and fried okra, at least 50 pieces of perfectly fried okra. (The okra and most of my cole slaw came home with me for dinner. Hush puppies came with each dinner but we had no room for them. The place isn’t fancy but the portions are large, service is wonderful and the prices are reasonable.More

The plates we ordered we’re basically appetizers with one local shrimp fare. Sadly, nothing really had great flavor. Melted butter and dips were provided. We enjoy the taste of seafood, not dips and flavors. Overall, the staff was very friendly and polite. No big gripes...but it isn’t the awesome food place we had been told to visit.More

This was our first stop on our summer vacation. We visited in January ‘22 and we’ve been counting the days to get back again. We had grilled Trigger fish, cold Mayport shrimp and broiled Mayport shrimp. It was all excellent. Hush puppies outstanding! All the...sides were great too. Perfect sweet tea too. We eat the Lance crackers and cocktail sauce like chips and salsa. This little place is clean and cute. Waitstaff are excellent.More

the food here is average but the waitress we had was exceptional. when you come in you seat yourself. the waitress waited on us immediately and asked us if we had any questions, which we did. she made sure our drinks were refilled and that...we had plenty of anything we wanted. the brussel sprout appetizer was good with a great honey balsamic sauce with bacon, goat cheese, and sliced kielbasa. my husband had the fried seafood sampler, but i like my fish with a crispier coating and the fish was flaky, not firm and solid. the coating was like it was barely baked. the same with the fried chicken on my salad. the coating was like it was barely baked, not fried. the salad was just chopped romaine, tasteless tomato wedges, and large white onion slices. the tomato still had black core on it that i had to cut off. the slaw was good, as well as the dressing. the place seemed clean. there was plenty of free parking. the place was full.More

It's not fancy, but for the money you can not beat it. Large portions and cook perfectly every time. We will absolutely go again!

We enjoyed our food. I had the combo seafood platter with the blackened option and a bowl of chowder. It was pretty busy so service was a little slower than we liked. Mom had a fried platter and it was cooked jut right. Also, as...mentioned by others it is a no-frills place as so many beach spots are, but it didn't stink and wasn't nasty. That's fine because, hey; we were on a relaxed vacation, not a luxurious pleasure excursion. And yes, I have standards. We chose it for the honest unpretentious reviews. We would return if ever in the area again.More

STINKY, FILTHY NASTY, STINKY! Walking in the door the odor and filth set the tone. Did not want to stay and wanted to gag, but local family said food was good. OMG! Two meals, fried shrimp with baked potato, applesauce and $5 side salad and...Mayport fried shrimp Po’Boy with French fries and applesauce was total of $48+. Shrimp were fried to death and just yuck. This old, tired, stinky, filthy nasty establishment is an awful place to eat along Atlantic Beach/north Jacksonville beach area. The restaurant Needs to be inspected by the health department; obviously it has not been. Do not believe the locals or the other reviews! Sickening, really.More

Not what we were expecting. Paper cups, paper plates and plastic baskets. Thinking of no... this is going to be a twig wreck. Nope! Food was amazing, came out fast and the service was on point. Would definitely go back next time we're down for...vacation.More

We love the Seafood Kitchen and always have at least one meal here on our annual visits to the Mayo Clinic. We went on a Thursday night expressly for the lobster special. Had always loved it in past but this night just wasn’t the same....Guess we should’ve had them break open the lobsters. I simply don’t enjoy any meal I literally have to “work” to enjoy it - or even to “get to it!” Had also loved the oyster stew on past visits but this time did not. Not seasoned and sort of not so good oysters. And didn’t remember the cole slaw coming in a container about the size of a pill holder in a hospital. I feel all restaurants are wrong to serve such a pitiful small portion. And the “down home” places all seem to be doing so!Friends did enjoy their grilled shrimp AFTER initially being brought fried ones! Waitress did make up with some gratis onion rings and fried okra. Waitress was very friendly as they always are. Just disappointed in the anticipated enjoyable lobster we had experienced in the past. We did not this visit - BUT will return ! AND ask them to do whatever to allow eating them without such a big effort. Still highly recommend!More

I was there Sunday evening 04/24/2022 and one of the last to leave. I thoroughly enjoyed coming to Seafood Kitchen. This was my first time and the food was fantastic. The "collids" (collard greens), fanfrickintastic!! OVERALL all that I had was good, crabbites, hushpuppies, conchfritters,...gator tail, soft shell crab, grouper. My server Brooke, was absolutely the best. She treated my guest and I like we were the only ones there. The prices are reasonable and the next time I come to the beach in Jacksonville Florida, I am eating here!!. Brooke's service and recommendations were great!!More

Awesome selection of fresh seafood at amazing prices. The only restaurant in Jacksonville we had to wait for and it was worth it. Locals and tourists mingle at this gem of a restaurant.

Wonderful find! Lovely place conveniently located. Some of the best seafood (and onion rings!) we've had in Florida. Liz helped us to make some fabulous choices. She was very friendly and attentive. Fresh oysters and trigger fish were amazing. Brussel sprout appetizer was also top...notch. We will surely visit again when in town.More
