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.

We enjoy Nippers. The food is good as is the service. They have a major bar issue. Everytime we dine there something is always out of stock. Thus time it was the wine we wanted.

My niece brought us to Nipper's while we were visiting. She told us that the Chef was a participant on Top Chef. I don't know, but I would believe it. The shrimp and grits was outstanding and unique--on a rectangular platter was a nice long pile of buttery perfectly cooked grits on top of that there were many large shrimp in a tasty rust colored creamy sauce with nice chunks of lean and crispy bacon. Never have had this and hope to find it around our area. The fish bites were lightly battered, crispy hot, and served with a signature remoulade sauce. There were 8 of us and everyone loved his dish. Talk about service--ALL our food was brought out HOT and FRESH at the same moment- usually only find this in very expensive restaurants-AWESOME service. The prices were reasonable. The location was on the intercoastal. Although we went at night, it would be a fun place during the day. Casual, lively, and family friendly. Highly recommend.

Thanks to the on-line reviews, my family and I made it to Nippers and it did not disappoint. The food was very good: fries, fish 'n shrimp platter, marsh harbor guacamole, Bahamian conch fitters, and sword fish. Our waitress, Peaches, was pleasant and very attentive. The portions are very good - you can actually share meals. They had a live band and the music was very entertaining. Once you walk into the restaurant the music was very loud though, but we were seated near the men's room and it toned down a bit. The restaurant is very spacious. Very lively atmosphere. We visited on a Saturday night around 6:45 p.m. for dinner.

This was our first visit to Jacksonville Beach, and I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Nice outdoor seating on the waterfront of beach blvd boat slips, they have a very good cheeseburger. Have had the lobster MAC n cheese before which is delicious. Nice spot to pull up your boat and grab lunch, live bands outback which makes for a fun atmosphere. Billy's boat house next door is a good choice too...
