This place is fantastic, the food is awesome, drink specials are on point and it's in a great location. The service can be a little shaky at times but 85% of the time they do a great job.

Have always been a fan of Mossfire Grill. Cool place, great patio, interesting menu (several good choices for a vegetarian). Food is still really good (though I don't like the change in how they prepare the plantains). While service has never been a standout quality of Mossfire, it wasn't terrible. However, during our most recent trip there they set a... More

Delicious food. The fish specials are always on point. The crab cakes are great. And the burrito.....is huge! Mossfire is a must do if your visiting and been on my rotation for years.

We ordered the spinach/chicken quesadilla and a Baja fish taco. All arrived quickly. Baja taco was a bit salty for me, but good taste. This was our second trip there in less than a year. They are also on Delta Skymiles Dining which makes it a big plus for us when we travel to the Jacksonville area.

With tons of swank places in the upscale bohemian hood we settled on eating here because we thought it the best fit satisfy our yearning for a quality tasty dinner and our picky eater kids. We we right! Walked in to friendly staff and an open kitchen ... Good omens. Menu has good variety for adults and they have a... More

We went with a bunch of friends for dinner over the weekend and it took forever to get our order. I give the food a B- and definitely not worth a 45 minute wait. I watched as 3 other tables vacated since the patrons were tired of waiting. This is my second similar experience, so it is unlikely I will... More

My husband and I were in Jacksonville for a wedding and had a day to ourselves to wander prior to the event. Our friend recommended The Mossfire Grill and when we went to investigate, we met the owner by chance as I was peering in the front window. She invited us in; had a great conversation and looked at the... More

We went here on a Thursday night for our monthly girl's night out, and was pleasantly surprised at the good deal on the drinks. It was happy hour, and they had the best margaritas! I had the quesadilla, and it was plentiful, and good. A lot of my friends, had the meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and they said it was... More

We regularly stop in when visiting Jacksonville and want Mexican faire. Usually sit downstairs, but tonight tried upper level bar. Friendly hostess as we walked in and even nicer waitresses at the bar. We ordered new menu items, for us, and we were pleasantly pleased. Always a nice venue. Glad our local daughter turned us onto the Mossfire.

Wonderful food & service! Fish tacos, chicken tortilla soup & crab cakes. Also, the waiter was very helpful with directions.
