It's a bit difficult to rate this, because I get the strong feeling they could do better. So, the three-star rating is to give them the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully they're really a four-star place (I highly doubt they'd ever be five). I went here with a friend I was visiting; she eats here pretty often, I guess. When... More

This place as featured on Dine In, Drive In and Dives a few years back. This is how I came to know about Singletons. Anytime I have people come into town, I like to take them here. The fish and shrimp is always awesome. If they have Trigger Fish, I highly recommend trying it grilled. Yes, they will Fry anything... More

I have been working in the Mayport area since 2002 and I love this family-owned restaurant because it really is a local institution from the river view to the model boats. The staff is very warm and friendly. I always feel welcome. The servings are always generous as I always go home with a takeout box. The food is prepared... More

Being stationed at Mayport base in the past it's a place to take incoming family and friends to the area. We hadn't been in a while but the food was great as always and the staff is on point with information on fish selections! Fun friendly and fast service will return !

While Singleton's isn't much to look at, the peel and eat shrimp were outstanding! As was the onion loaf. Very, very casual, "dive" category, but on the water.

Stopped into Singletons Seafood Shack today on the way home via the St. Johns River Ferry. It was my first time being there and what a nice surprise. It is definitely a shack, not like eating at the Ritz Carlton, but it wasn't designed to be that way. It is a seafood restaurant in Mayport, what used to be a... More

Very high prices but right on the river. It may be old FL but the cleanliness is less than desirable & especially the br's. The floor shifts as you walk around and the portions are ample but expensive. The trigger fish was tough and the hush puppies burnt.

Best hushpuppies , Cole slaw and fries ever at a restaurant. And dont forget the Onion Strings. Yum. Enough for next day lunch and wonderful reheated. Loved this place. Will... More

Super casual dive type seafood place. The place is leaning and looks like it was made out of plywood lol! The buffalo shrimp appetizer was delicious!! I ordered a blackened Mahi sandwich that was just average. A little over cooked. I think I just ordered wrong, should have stuck with something fried at a place like this. My friend had... More
