We often take the motorcycle up A1A to Mayport just to go to Safe Harbor to pick up fresh seafood and have a spot of lunch (portions are HUGE!). Always served promptly, despite its popularity, but a tip is to go early or late - not at peak lunch hours. Staff are really helpful and friendly.

Was my first trip the place came most highly recommend by locals. The seafood comes off boats on to there docks in back. This is a family place you cat eat in the screened porch or out under covered decks. You order in line and get a number where food is brought out to you but it's kind of self... More

We took the national park ferry across the St Johns after visiting Fort George Island and the Kingsley Plantation to get fresh seafood in Mayport. We were not disappointed in the home of the Mayport Naval station. A classic coastal seafood market and restaurant, nothing fancy, lots of fresh fish, clean restrooms, outside seating at boat docks and lots of... More

We stopped in here after coming across on the ferry. It is a busy place! Don't let the long line discourage you, it moves quickly. We all had the fried shrimp basket. A dozen large shrimp with fries, coleslaw, choice of sauce and hush puppies. Everyone was pleased with their food. For two people, our total bill including drinks was... More

Went to get river shrimp, sold on market side then had to pay again to have them cooked. For a pound of river shrimp and sautéed it cost us 41.00 but I did get two ice teas!

I was in Jacksonville just for the day a few days after Hurricane Matthew roared through. I had read reviews about this place and wanted to try it. Luckily, other than a downed palm tree in the parking lot and some minor debris, there was no damage to the restaurant and they were open for business. It's not hard to... More

Stopped by on a Friday evening in October...no significant wait. Beware they close relatively early (8 PM I think) for a restaurant because they are really a seafood market that just happens to also cook their catch, so the restaurant hours are limited to the market hours. Nothing fancy, but still very good. No real wait staff, you walk into... More
