Diner Reviews
  • "The service was great- our waitress had personal recommendations and was knowledgeable about the menu. The drinks were delicious and the food was fantastic. The scallop seasonal special is a must try- kind of like scallops that have the flavor of pizza. I would come back and bring a friend any day!"

  • "In town for a conference, some local folks recommended North Beach Fish Camp. Our server, Joe, was friendly, knowledgable and the food was excellent. Will definitely go back when in Jax Beach area."

  • "We tried this place on our trip to Atlantic Beach from St Louis last year and loved it so much we booked reservations 2 months out in order to have dinner again. It is pricy bit worth it for the fresh seafood and flavorful dishes. They are also kid friendly and you can dress casual in your beach wear. You definitely need to book reservations unless you want to wait. Can't wait to come back again!"

  • "Great beachy menu. Wonderful seafood and knowledgable wait staff. Reservations are honored and timely handled. Noise level is higher than it should be. Wish some sound baffles could be installed. We live in the neighborhood and will return often. We love it."

  • "My wife and I had been to this restaurant two times before and thought food and service were excellent. Not this time. We sat outside, which we had done the previous visit and on that visit service was excellent. This time it appeared that there was no server dedicated to the outside. We were the only outdoor table assigned to this server. We saw this server for our drink order and then for our dinner order. That was the last time we saw that individual again until we were literally through with dinner which was served by someone else. I had to go inside to ask for my check and then again go inside to pay my check. We never did get the opportunity to order second drinks, coffee, or dessert. This made for an unsatisfactory dinner."

  • "Always great food and service. We ate inside in a nice, roomy booth. Shrimp and grits are great, fish specials always delicious, they also have fried platters for which my in-laws LOVE! Only downside is the noise level from diners & servers talking, sometime hard to hear across your table, but it's a very energetic place and we will go back!"

  • "Went for our wedding anniversary and was very happy with the choice. Great location. Sat by the window and watched people dashing in and out of the rain heading to the beach ( one block away). Great fresh sea food (salmon and roasted cod), good wine selection, very nice desert choices (bread pudding exceptional) and the service was great. Would recommend to anyone."

  • "North Beach Fish Camp was a great find. It had been recommended by many friends and we finally went the other night. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. I highly recommend NBFC to anyone venturing towards the Jax Beach area. The dining area can get a bit loud but the food is worth the noise."

  • "I LOVE North Beach Fish Camp. My niece was visiting recently from Champaign, Illinois and I ordered shrimp and grits and asked her to take a taste. Her eyes lit up and she said, "Oh my, this is SOOOO good I need to stand up and sing about it." My nephew ordered shrimp and grits at our last visit and gave it raving reviews. Food is great and the restaurant is just a GREAT place to eat!!"

  • "Always good! Always great seafood. Service was just ok. Please don't sit large parties right by the front door. It's so loud already with the people waiting. If you are seated in the front it's awful. We couldn't hear each other without yelling. While the food was great its impossible to have a conversation. I will request a booth from now on."

  • "The service was professional, attentive, and friendly. The ambience was wonderful, with a nice beachy vibe. And the food was - well, simply spectacular. The smoked fish dip was wonderful, and the fresh fish dishes we ordered (grouper and salmon) were second to none. Have been to all of the Fish Camps in town, and we are blessed to have them in Jacksonville. Here's to hoping you keep the people you have because they truly know what they're doing when it comes to fresh fish. We will definitely see you again! :)"

  • "Must give this restaurant high marks. Enjoyed dinner with my husband and adult daughter, after a tiring weekend of moving her to the Beaches. It was the perfect place. Food was fantastic. We ordered 3 items from the daily chalkboard specials. All superb. Service was great. Cocktails we're delish and refreshing. Shared key lime pie for dessert. Yummy"

  • "Ate early at 6:15 on a Friday night and drove around forever to find a place to park. Beautiful weather so everyone was 'in town' enjoying the shops and bars. Great for walking but not driving. Watch out for the bicyclists too. Food was good as well as the service. I got the grilled seafood platter. Fish was good but only 3 scallops. Price reasonable for what you got. We decided not to try to go back to town because of the parking. But, I'd go back at another time of year."

  • "We went with a group of 10 coworkers. The Fried green tomatoes were a big hit. Our server Deidre was fantastic. She made great recommendations & took good care of us. Fresh seafood was ordered by most. Several in the group were 1st timers & said they would return with their spouses."

  • "My friends wanted to go grab something to eat and have a beer for lunch, so I quickly made reservations.. The place was not busy and we got to choose a spot by the window... Our server, Kate, was a sweetheart. Prices here are high for what you get. My boyfriend had the blackened shrimp. He got 6 shrimps with two veggie sides and his alone was $19! Our friend ordered the ceviche of the day off the appetizer menu, and I could tell he was disappointed too... There was no fish, only shrimp in his. He had it with fish before, so he assumed it was the same. Our mistake 😞 Our bill was $70 for me and my boyfriend. 2 margaritas, 2 glass of Chardonnay, my Greek salad, and his blacked shrimp. To me that's a little high for lunch. We left hungry 😫"

  • "We are regular diners of North Beach and PV Fish Camps. We love it and we always bring our out-of-town guests, most of whom are from So. Cal, here and they always leave very impressed by the friendly and quick service, and the simple yet delcious food. Just one, tiny suggestion: please add another meat item to your menu, like chili or a hearty stew. Thanks!"

  • "I had never been to NBFC and I was pleasantly surprised! A co-worker encouraged us to try and so we made reservations. Arrived 15 mins early to a packed house. We were sat right on time in their upstairs dining room. Hostess was engaging and provided opinion on food selection. Our server also was engaging and quick. We had the bacon oyster app which was outstanding! The grits however were the star of the table. I am not a fan of grits but I could not stop eating them. I wanted to take home a bucket. We ended the night red velvet cake. We left full, happy and completely satisfied. I would recommend this place to anyone. You will not be disappointed. "

  • "We had a reservation for 5 and after waiing awhile for our table we were seated at a table for 4 with a chair added on the end. Not the best start for a special occasion evening. The manager did come talk with us and assured us the food would be worth it. He did send us an order of the scallop appetizer and it was the best scallops I have ever had. Everything we ordered was excellent, you will not be disappointed in the food. Will definitely return."

  • "Ordered mussels for appetizer and they would cooked perfectly. For the main course I ordered the pan fried trout and it was wonderful. My only complaint is the noise, it was very loud. Sitting outside might be a better option. Will definitely be going back. "

  • "North Beach Fish Camp continues to be one of the best restaurants in Neptune Beach. While it has virtually the same menu as Palm Valley Fish Camp in Ponte Vedra, it is more energetic. The service is very good, but sometimes the staff can be overwhelmed by the crowd."

  • "Just had our first of many visits to NB Fish Camp! !! Had some oysters raw and broiled with the bacon cream highly recommend that way to start. My wife and I shared the seafood boil for two. It was perfect for two and was well worth it. Jist wished they gave us something to clean our hands with after digging into the feast definitely not a fork and knife dish so a wet wipe or warm moist towel would have been a nice way to finish the night off. But other then that we cant wait to go back!!"

  • "This is my fourth time dining at this restaurant. This location is awesome and the food has always been good, not great but good. They are always busy at this location so you will have to wait even if you have a reservation. The apps were really good especially the pimento cheese spread. I ventured off of the usual Mahi dish and ordered the seafood platter. The scallops and fish were bland and overcooked. My guest's meals were good. Overall good dining experience."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather. The waitress, Mackenzie, was excellent and very knowledgeable about the menu. I had one of the specials, a veal chop, not exactly seafood, and it was outstanding. My wife had a seafood salad and thoroughly enjoyed it.. You must try the bread pudding for dessert. Get the half portion unless you are still very hungry. Again it was our waitress that advised us about the availability of a half portion. What a great idea! All in all, a great dining experience"

  • "Very nice atmosphere at NBFC and staff have great attitudes of service and friendliness...food tasted good but it was all served room temp - fries and all seafood on platter. Parsely potatoes looked like mushy leftovers and little in dish for 3$. Overall though everything tasted great and they do seem to strive to please..we didn't complain bc we were soo hungry. The server was attentive and so nice..all the kids working there are great. We would go back."

  • "We were a group of 8, 4 adults and 4 kids. We ate Sunday lunch at the Fish Camp. I had made a reservation for 1 pm, and when we arrived our table was still occupied, so they kindly sat us upstairs instead of having us wait. The noise level was better upstairs also which was more enjoyable. The server was good and friendly. He could have been a bit more attentive to the drinks but was otherwise great. The food was terrific. We had blackened shrimp and grits and mahi fish tacos. For apps we had oysters, fried green tomatoes and fried gator. The gator was really chewy, but the other apps were yummy. We will definitely dine there again."

  • "Our first experience dining here was in 2012 while attending a conference in Atlantic beach. The food here was fantastic, especially the mussels. We ate here every evening of the conference. We came back later that year for our anniversary to again experience the fantastic food. Now we are back for Spring break 2014. We love the food, wine, service and energy of this place. It's the sort of place we wish we had at home, so we wouldn't have to drive so far to experience it! The restaurant is always full of enthusiastic patrons-- locals and tourists alike. No better endorsement needed than that. Be sure to make reservations, because you'll wait a long time for a table if you don't."

  • "Food is always consistently excellent, well prepared, and fresh, and daily specials make it more interesting. They take advantage of seasonal vegetables, and even if someone does not like seafood, there are enough other choices to make anyone happy. The only thing I would consider adding are some panels for buffering sound."
