This was our first visit to Nippers, but we will be back. We had the Fish & Chips, Mac & Cheese, and Shrimp & Grits. Everything was outstanding. The fish in the Fish & Chips was a thick cut of white fish with a very mild flavor and a light batter. The fries that came with the Fish & Chips seemed to have been battered first and were delicious. The Jalapeno Hushpuppies were huge and had just a little bite to them. And the Jicama Cole Slaw was light and fruity. The Mac & Cheese was yummy. But, by far, the star of the night was the Shrimp & Grits! The grits were so creamy that they almost had the consistency of mashed potatoes - thick and hearty. The shrimp were firm and plentiful. The sausage added just a hint of spiciness. And the sauce over everything was perfect.
The atmosphere here is very relaxed with caribbean music playing and a beautiful view of the water. But the service is not relaxed - it is first-class. Anytime we needed something, someone was there to make sure our request was fulfilled. Our water glasses were never empty and our food and drinks were served quickly.
We are looking forward to our next visit to Jacksonville so we can visit Nippers again.
