My wife had the salmon and I had the grouper. Both were excellent. Very most and just falling apart. Our waitress Bre was extremely nice, polite, and very familiar with food selections. Couldn't have had better hospitality.

Came to Salt Life Food Shack for a business dinner (and to tell you the truth, I didn't even realize Salt Life had restaurants) on September 13, 2022. The staff was young, but professional and great. Our server, Jalen, was exceptional. He knew everything on...the menu, provided great recommendations, super nice, and checked on us often (including when happy hour was going to end). Food was great, the vibe was better, and the service was fantastic!More

We took a gamble and tried here even though it was almost closing time. Melanie gave us great service. We ate the Boca style grouper sandwich and the salmon BLT. Both were amazing and delicious! Hot fries and good tea.

I bring my wife to Jax Beach with me every summer to visit my family. We decided to head to Salt Life after a long day of fun in the sun and we were not disappointed. I had the best shrimp and scallop pasta of...my life! So tender and well-seasoned. I happened to run into the cook LaQuan in the restroom and I had to let him know what an amazing job he had done. We will certainly be returning every year from now on!More

Fun atmosphere with a big fish tank to entertain kids while you wait, though our food was out quickly. Big selection on the kids menu. Food was delicious. Loved the sushi and the tuna taco. Jalen was one of the best servers we have ever...had!More

I wanted to take my daughter for a birthday lunch, and she chose Salt Life at Jax Beach. The entire experience was a 10 out of 10. We chose to dine outside. The outdoor dining area was well-shaded and had an ample fan. Our appetizer...was a dozen oysters on the half shell, with cocktail sauce and horseradish on the side…wonderful! We split the Crab Baked Grouper with roasted vegetables. Grouper is my favorite fish, and I don’t think I’ve ever had it more perfectly prepared. Wonderful beverages were consumed also, including an oyster shot for each of us. Our server, Bailea, was absolutely fantastic. She was the perfect balance of helpfulness and attentiveness. She also offered my daughter her choice of a birthday dessert, complete with a lit candle. We were also visited by the general manager of the restaurant near the end of our meal. I can’t say enough about this restaurant and our experience there. We will definitely return, and I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a wonderful dining experience in Jax Beach!More
