A word from North Beach Fish Camp
The surf is up here at North Beach Fish Camp in Neptune Beach, Florida. Set in the epicenter of the Atlantic Beach-Neptune Beach Town Center just minutes from the sand, we have combined a lively atmosphere with imaginative creations, and of course, the freshest seafood around.

Coastal living is an art form, and we invite you to take it all in. From the salt in the air to the busy shuffling of beach goers, the atmosphere is intoxicating.

Treat yourself to a cool beverage, tasty seafood, and time out with friends. Making memories starts today, and we’re excited to help you do just that!

    I go before every big test I take, the food was great as usual, though their beer and wine list are pretty stagnant. Hard to have a conversation due to the loudness, too.

    It was my first time at North Beach Fish Camp and I will definitely be back! We split a bottle of wine and ordered an appetizer along with two entrees and definitely got what we paid for. Amazing food and wine list and the restaurant has a very good vibe.

    Not the place to go for a quiet tete a tete with your sweetie, but if you want great seafood and service this is the place for you! My guests and I have sampled their extensive menu and never been disappointed. I have seen them cram 5 in to a table for 4 so make sure that you get a reservation for busy time if you have a larger party! If you just turn up they take your cell number and call when your table is ready so you can walk down to the beach while you are waiting! "I will return!"

    North Beach Fish Camp is a family run business that caters to making sure your food and service is awesome. We had the Fried Green Tomatoes and seared scallops as an appetizers. The scallops were great with perfect seasoning and grated cheese. I don't like tomatoes, but my friend insisted on trying the fried green tomatoes and there were great. For entrees we had the Shrimp & grits and the crab cakes. Both were delicious.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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!!
