“Great Fish Camp Atmosphere; Even Better Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

This will be your favorite seafood restaurant (it is mine) if you are looking for great fresh seafood, extremely reasonable prices, ample portions and don't mind the fish camp atmosphere. While it is not a fancy restaurant by any stretch of the imagination, you can always count on a large variety of great food choices (with emphasis on the great food) and therefore a place that the locals eat at.

“A nice little seafood shack”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

Across the street from the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville is a small blue shack named Trent's Seafood & Grill. This restaurant has been there since 1997 but the building has been used for various business since the early 40's.

The good: The prices are very good and averaged $10.00 for lunch
The service is friendly and knows their menu
Had alligator for the first time and it was tasty

The ok: Had to ask for refill of drinks and even after confrming we were drinking un-sweetened ice tea,
were given sweetened.
Florida restaurants LOVE salt and Trent's is no exception.

The bad: Had a side of corn and it was server with an opened and partially used containor of butter.

Overall, it's a good place for lunch or dinner and we would go back.

“Superior Seafood in a Shack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

Trents is a seafood shack on a side street!! The menu has everything that you could want, prepared how you would like it. The seafood is fresh. The service is great. The prices are fair. The oyster bar is superb. Family owned and run! If you like seafood in a casual atmosphere, this is the place!

“If you want casual and homey, this is the place to go.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

I enjoyed the food...nothing fancy mind you. I would say I received more than my monies worth compared to other seafood restaurants. More importantly the service was EXCEPTIONAL! The entire waitstaff was friendly and made you feel welcome. Nice to be appreciated as a customer for a change.
