A friend suggested we go because of the good food. "Good" was an under statement - the food was AWESOME!! We had reservations for 6:30 and walked in at that time. We were seated immediately. Are server Jordan was incredible. She had a complete understanding of the many and provided us answers to all of our questions. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Tranquil intercoastal waterway view
Always enjoy the ambience and food at the Palm Valley Fish Camp in Palm Valley. New Location now also available in Neptune Beach, FL but nothing beats the fabulous view of the boats drifting by, the dolphins splashing up for air and the peacefulness of the inter-coastal waterway nearby Jacksonville, Florida. Reasonably priced, always dependable food preparation with super fresh fish dishes and cheerful, professional service. A favorite for our family celebrations and sometimes just because!!!

Everyone was friendly and made you feel welcome. The waitress was knowledgable and engaging. Was able to give recommendations and describe the food accurately. It is on our favorite list of restaurants. Afterwards we sat on their dock which is on the inland waterway and enjoyed the ambience. There is also outdoor seating.

Great, reasonably price in
Great, reasonably price in a neighborhood of upscale golf and resort restaurants that are over priced. Food is outstanding: mostly Southern classics with a gourmet finesse, the collard greens, for example, tasted as if they were cooked in a rich ham stock with a taste of honey. Highly recommended but beware, it's VERY noisy due to crowded dining room in a small, modest spot. Overlooks a river but not much opportunity to actually view it during the meal.

This place was nestled in the heart of rural Ponte Vedra, yes I said rural. I almost missed it! We took my out of town family for a little treat. It was small but the atmosphere was great. Very laid back and relaxing. Beautiful scenery. The staff was super friendly and upbeat. The food was wonderful as well. A great selection of seafood and other fare. I loved the down home additions, grits, collard greens, fried green tomatoes, all with a gourmet flare. We will be back, sooner rather than later.

Visiting Ponte Vedra for a week this summer, and ended up at Palm Valley for two dinners. Loved the food, the service and the atmosphere. Even our picky 7 year old liked it there! Highly recommend............

Great Annual Stop
This is an annual stop we make each year during our golf tourney. We find the food to be teriffic, service outstanding and the scenic views to be excellent. Will continue to visit the FishCamp every trip we make to the area!

Best meal I've had in a while!
This was my first visit to PVFC, and it did not disappoint in any way. I had the blackened mahi mahi, with grits and collard greens. So good I could have licked the plate. My friend had the salmon with spinach and potatoes. Equally delicious. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Palm Valley Fish Camp is superb! An upscale casual restaurant with wonderful ambiance and great food! The restaurant is small and "energetically" noisy, but that adds to the fun. A knowledgeable and fun wait staff take good care of their patrons, always with a smile. The food is fresh, innovative and delicious. This spot is on our permanent list when visiting Ponte Vedra, and we tell our friends not to miss it.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
as always, great fish
We return to Palm Valley Fish Camp (PVFC) 2-3 times a year, when we go to St. Augustine for our daughter in college there. We are always reminded, each visit, how excellent the fish and food is at PVFC. Well worth visiting from Los Angeles just for a meal at PVFC.
And the Belle Glos Pinot Noir was wonderful as always. I think we had the Los Alturas vineyard grown vintage last time, the Telephone and Clark vineyard grown vintage this time.

PV Fish Camp - A Favorite
Palm Valley Fish Camp is a great casual place to go with friends, business associates, and family for a delicious meal with a great Intracoastal view. They make probably some of the best seafood dishes in town and their homemade desserts are terrific. The service is always attentive and accommodating. Definitely one you want on your list to try if you haven't already. Parking can be tough, but the restaurant is providing valet parking now which helps.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unbelievably LOUD!!!!!! Not pleasant.
Food was very good.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM

Our Dining Experience
Always great menu and food. Very hustle bustle atmosphere. Wait staff very attentive.
Not a place to go and talk to a person who you need to catch up with because it is very loud and not able to hear a normal conversation very well.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noise ok? This is your place!
Great food, wonderful service, excellent menu. Noisiest place I have ever eaten but I will be back with noise reducing headphones. Seriously, unless you cannot tolerate noise it's an outstanding place to dine.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved the food and the service. Will go back when we are on that side of the sTate again!

Prompt reservation seating....waitstaff attentive and knowledgeable...Quailty high in every choice...about 10 percent to high on price. Go ! You won't be disappointed.

This was our first visit to the Palm Valley Fish Camp and we cam away very impressed! There were four of us all different age groups, Grandma, Grandson (23) and two parents. It was a very energetic atmosphere. If you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner on a weekend night this is not the place unless you eat outside. The service from the Valet to the Valet was awesome and friendly. The menu was very good. We all had a different plate and we all gave it a 5 star rating for the food.
We will be back as we live in St Augustine and are always looking for a different place to dine!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We visited the Ponte Vedra area and went to Palm Valley Fish Camp on the first night. It is a small, noisy place, but the food was excellent. We loved it so much, we returned a second night. Great find!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time dining at this restaurant and enjoyed everything but the noise level. We went with another couple and it was nearly impossible to have a conversation. If the restaurant can solve the noise problem I would rate this "top notch."
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always excellent food.
Palm Valley Fish Camp is always noisy but the food and service is so good that you forget aboutt it.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh seafood on the innercoastal waterway. Packed house on a Tuesday. Reservations a must! I love the fresh fried shrimp in a basket with hush puppies and coleslaw.

We hosted a surprise party
We hosted a surprise party for my dad at palm valley this past weekend and they could not have been more accommodating! The food is amazing and the service goes above and beyond!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am not always good at reviewing Open Table Restaurants we have eaten at. However, our dinner and experience at Palm Valley Fish Camp last week was outstanding! The grouper I ordered, served with greens and goat cheese grits was out of this world and my husbands big thick pork chop was even better and I am not even a pork lover. The dishes were flavorful yet not overdone with herbs and spices. They were simple but comlex and oh so tasty! Our waiter, Brian, was very attentive and gave us great feedback on what to order! Palm Valley Fish Camp is our number 1 pick when we visit the area, and I highly recommend it!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The whole table (5 of us) had steamed oysters (3lbs - probably could have gone with 5lbs and been happy) to start - which were fresh and very tasty - then everyone in the party selected the Roasted Grouper on Goat Cheese grits with a topping of kale in a creamy sauce. Everyone agreed it was fabulous....
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ponte Vedra Gem
A must in Ponte Vedra. All six of us raved about food & service. Eat outside if you can and sit on their dock and have a drink right on The Intercoastal Waterway. And, an absolute must-- have the bread pudding for desert, you may want seconds, we did!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have never been disappointed at The Fish Camp. My favorite dish there is the Shrimp and Grits. I have to force myself to order other options which are always delicious. It's very casual, but very good. I would recommend a reservation and the restaurant can get noisy when its full. To avoid this, go a little earlier. Last time we went at 6:45 and it was much quieter than when we go at 8.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Date Night
We had an amazing dinner, the serer was very good and knowledgeable. The food was amazing and we have been their many times and never a bad experience.
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
Had an absolutely wonderful meal! Would highly recommend it.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the Mahi Mahi with Grits...it was excellent! My whole table was happy with their food selections. The place was a bit loud and tables crowded...We walked out to the deck after dinner and it was very nice. I did NOT like the fact that I had to have my car parked for me...no choice.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is great and very consistent!
Food is great and very consistent! One of my favorite places in the jax area to dine!

Great place to eat!
This was our second visit to Palm Valley Fish Camp and it didn't disappoint. The food was excellent and waitstaff was on the ball. I ordered the Broiled Seafood platter with scallops, shrimp and cod and lemon butter sauce. Cooked perfectly and delish! My husband had the gorgonzola ribeye special and it was also perfect. They were offering Marker 31 desserts that night and we shared the key lime pie. Perfection.
If I had any complaint it would be that the place is small and you have to arrive early to park or else valet your car. The parking lot is teeny tiny! All outdoor seating was already spoken for, which I would have liked, but there are not many outdoor tables. However, I'd walk a mile to eat here. It was that good.

Not your father's 'fish camp'
Our favorite seafood restaurant in NE FL. Great variety & excellent service in a bright & immaculate setting on the intracoastal waterway. Bring your out-of-town guests here for sure.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
PV Fish Camp never dissapoints
Been there many times and they consistently produce excellent seafood dishes with a low country flair. Mahi dish served with Tasso cream sauce over grits with side of collard greens is just outstanding. Wait staff is excellent, prices are reasonable and we have never had anything other than a great experience at PV or North Beach fish camps. And their fine dining restaurant (Marker 32) is our favorite for birthdays and anniversaries.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great food. I dine out all ove theUSA and Europe, and this is one of

grits and bread pudding heaven
had the blackened mahi w grits which was outstanding. I like lightly blackened fish and they nailed it. also, make sure to order the bread pudding to share. it is enough for about 4 people. it is very sweet, but very good.

We were all very happy with our meals. Disappointed they were out of oyster the day we were there.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best in Palm Valley
We had the Mahi Mahi and the Snapper and they both were delicious and came out very hot! The fried green tamatoes are fabulous; love the goat cheese crumbles on top. We can't wait to go back.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great little stop!
We were traveling through and this place got a 92% from urban spoon. So glad to get a reservation (needed BTW). We had a great meal. Calamari was delicious but the best was yellowfin tuna. HOLY COW!!! YUM!!!!!! Great service. Will be back when we're in the area.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
My favorite at the Beach!!!
Yes, noisy! But the food is fantastic, so get over it!! Best restaurant at the beach, by far!!!
(Of course Marker 32 and North Beach Fish Camp are almost as good!!)
The blackened mahi over creamy grits with collard greens and tasso gravy......yummo!!
Best beet salad ever. The daily specials are always great! Go!! You'll love it!!
Don't forget the butter beans!!

Fresh Food with Great Service
We love Palm Valley Fish Camp for their fresh food, great selections, & excellent service. We thoroughly enjoy it every time we are in FL and dine at the restaurant...lunch & dinner!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food; good service...
and a nice wine list. Always a nice night out. Brought friends who own an upscale restaurant and they enjoyed it as much as we did.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a nice place to go.
The food was very good. We will eat there again. Service was great.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
dinner at Palm Valley Fish Camp
we usually dine her every 4-6 months, when we come to FL to visit our daughter at college. I've never been disappointed with the food, the service or the wine. All excellent. Fun and tasty selection of seafood and always some interesting wine choices. A good place to dine with a bottle of Belle Gloss Pinot Noir when they have it. Nice selection of beers on tap too.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our choice for seafood
Creative and well prepared. Busy - get a reservation.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this place
Great food and service. Loved the oysters! Great experience every time we've been there.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Brilliant night, turned left out of hotel and went 1 mile to an amazing Restraunt , really interesting menu and funky combinations, good value great atmosphere and really friendly staff, will definitely be back.
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
The valet service was contracted but even so, it was first-rate. The man who took our car was friendly and gracious and made sure we knew the service was free. We walked in the door, Friday night, 7 PM, and the noise level was high. We weren't sure where to go but continued past the seafood cooler until someone at the host stand greeted us. We had a four minute wait and were led to our table. The waitress was immediately present and took drink orders. Our appetizer order was filled very quickly and was followed by our entrees just as fast. I thought it might take a little time, since it was so busy, but that was not the case. The food was very good. Our waitress checked back with us several times to see how we were doing. Excellent place!
