This was our family's first trip to Jax Beach and we weren't familiar with many restaurants in the area. Our goal is always to find the local places and skip the chains. After reading some positive reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to give Landshark Cafe a try. I was a little leery walking in the door with my two children--at first glance, it looked like it was pretty much a bar. But it was a real restaurant with a varied menu, and there were plenty of other children in there, as well. I had the fish tacos (can you say "awesome!!"??) and sweet potato fries; my kids had chicken strips and a cheeseburger, and they both cleaned their plates (which is saying something). It was so good, we went back a second time when my husband joined us midweek. I had fish tacos again (and it wasn't a fluke--they were just as good the second time around), and they had a special going for July 4th, with pork and brisket cooked on a huge smoker grill outside. My husband had it and thought it was excellent, and he's a BBQ snob! We also had a basket of fried shrimp for an appetizer, and it was also very tasty. If you're looking for fancy, this isn't your place. But if you're looking for good food and a friendly staff, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Landshark Cafe!
P.S.--They have trivia night on Mondays (at least, they did when we were there), and it was a lot of fun! They also have live bands several nights a week and a cool deck out front that we might have tried out had it not been raining.
