“Stick to the Fish”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

A friend and I selected AmberJack based on Trip Advisor but frankly were a little concerned that Panera Bread was rated the best restaurant in town. In any event I chose filet mignon with fried shrimp for my main while my friend had the broiled halibut. My steak was a bit overcooked and the texture and taste was a little below par. The shrimp were good as was the fried calamari appetizer. My friend thought the halibut was excellent and we both enjoyed the hush puppies. Service was warm and friendly and the ambience was pleasant. The restaurant is enormous with four or five separate dining areas and is a great place for large groups. We were there on a Wednesday night and I suspect it's even busier during the weekend. I guess the lesson is to stick to the fish at a fish house.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I've had the pleasure of eating at AmberJacks a few times and everything I've tried is great. We recently went there for the all you can eat crab legs and they were delicious. Great food and great service!

“World Class Restaurant”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

God has blessed us with the opportunity to travel extensively across all fifty of our wonderful United States. Also, we have been privileged to travel overseas. We have eaten at some very impressive restaurants along our travels. We just finished a seafood meal today that ranks at the top of the list in food presentation, preparation, and flavor. Amber Jack's owners, Melody and Jimmy, strive to maintain grade A fresh food items and offer them to everyone at a very economical price. This was our first visit. Sometimes, there is something about a restaurant that may need improving. From the first class atmosphere, to the courteous servers, to the quality service and food, this place has it all! Try it for yourself. We drove 1.5 hours to give it a try. It is now our favorite place to dine!

“Best in the area”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Amberjack is best in the area for seafood, variety menu, and dynamite service. They also have the best Sunday buffet in town. We have never eaten there without top notch friendly service. The choices on the menu are diverse..and in an area known for fish camps- they are the best! All the dishes are great - seafood, steaks, Italian, Greek, etc.....
