Stopped by to taste their renowned oysters. 12 on the half shell for 8$. Good, but not great. Also wife and I shared their fried yucca layered on a dish of tasty black beans (yucca got soggy) and a portion of their mussels in a creamy wine and garlic sauce...Good. Service was excellent and the place had a good ambiance.... More

Had some of the best oysters I've ever eaten! Fish was healthily grilled & tasted delicious (yellowtail snapper)-- it was such a huge portion it hung off the plate. Located in a very cute area with lots of trendy dessert places nearby for after the meal

Delicious food with a menu consistent with the name very fish oriented. If you have a meat only eater it might not be your best choice, if not it's wonderful. The lobster mac and cheese is amazing.

Three couples had their lab, with his name DUKE emblazoned on his blue and white harness seated in the busiest part of the dining room. Lucky us, a twosome were seated next to them. DUKE proceeded to lick our table and sniff my wife's legs. The bow tied owner of DUKE didn't apologize. He said "DUKE knows better than that".... More

The Blue Fish is in a trendy neighborhood in Jacksonville Florida. They specialize in seafood, but also have a few non sea food plates. My husband had the oysters Bienville which he said we're great. That is a favorite dish of his that is hard to find. He had blackened swordfish. I had steak it was well cooked. Meals are... More

We were sitting in the small backyard with a fountain in the middle - very pleasant surrounding. We ordered Gumbo soup and Jambalaya which we liked very much. It was as good as in New Orleans.Tiffany the waitress, was helpful and very attentive. Then we ordered Cappuccino and to our surprise it was unexpectedly very good.

I have been coming here for many years with my husband, family, friends etc and we ALWAYS go when it is a nice day to sit out in the courtyard area. Reminds me of New Orleans and I love sitting in the courtyard. Brunch is amazing, shrimp and grits, oysters, unlimited mimosas...enough said! Very friendly staff and service.

We have visited Blue Fish several times, primarily on holidays like Thanksgiving. Visits at this time have always pleased us. The crowd is manageable on special occasions, and the menu reflects the season with varied choices either on the buffet or on a special menu. The atmosphere is lively but pleasant; not overly loud or annoying. Service on most visits... More
