We have seen this place many times, however, for whatever reason, this was our first time. It was lunch time, and it was not too busy at all. While there was street parking available, we chose to use their parking lot. I decided on the...More

It was a packed house but we got a seat right away and didn't have to wait. We started with oysters for our appetizers and I should have gotten more for my meal! We tried three different ones and they were absolutely fantastic. I had...More

If you go to the bluefish, ask for the waiter Dean. He was friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable. All three of our meals were exquisitely displayed and tasted fabulous. Personally it was my second time there and I would definitely go back again.

Restaurant was busy due to first night of Avondale Art Walk. Food was pretty good. Small portion of Pecan Crust Salmon was plenty. Would return and try something else.

get off at McDuff and go east toward the river. Turn right on St Johns. The restaurant will be on the right in the Avondale shopping area.
