If you have the shrimp dinner at Salt Life, try it blackened. They do an excellent job of blackening the shrimp. Had it tonight and it was excellent. Have the fried rice with it and you will not be disappointed. Sit in the bar area...and have Madison wait on you, she is the best.More

Me and my husband when to saltlife and enjoyed outstanding Bahamian fish chowder that Tyler recommend. I usually don’t like going out to eat because I have celiac but that staff and atmosphere made it very easy to enjoy!

Brooke provided us with the best experience we could have asked for when visiting a restaurant for the first time. Extremely kind, knowledgeable of the area, and had great conversation! 11/10 would visit again. Brooke is the best!

The atmosphere was perfect for the beach. The Boca Style Grouper was the best I have had. I highly recommend Salt Life Food Shack.

I visited Salt Life with a couple of friends for dinner and not only was the food great but our server Claire was incredible! She was super attentive and friendly, she also had great knowledge of the menu. I got the poke bowl that she...recommended and I'm glad I did, it was a great choice! Overall, I'm very happy with my experience and when I come back I'll be asking for Claire!More

I always check out prior reviews before dining when out of town and choose the best if the best, therefore my ratings are usually quite high. This restaurant had high expectations but sadly fell short. Service was slow. We were seated at a table with...a wet padded bench (recent rain) and the table had not been cleaned (in a pandemic, this is NOT ok). I ordered the poke bowl. The sticky rice was good but the tuna was not fresh (fishy tasting). The Rum Runner was delightful.More

Just ask for Emily. She’s amazing. Tons of recommendations, so friendly, and goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best time. And get the burger or tenders so good.

Me and my wife love this place. The atmosphere is excellent. The wait staff is always friendly and most important, the food never disappoints. They have great seafood. Check them out, you will be glad you did.

You can find me at Salt Life at least once a week. In addition to great food the service and atmosphere can't be beat so if you ever find yourself in Jax Beach this is a must stop for both the great food and atmosphere.
