Great menu. The food and service were very good. Salmon was just a little over cooked.

My wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary, and the food and service were wonderful. The food came to the table quickly, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It’s our favorite restaurant for seafood!

Extremely loud at lunch. I was there for a business lunch meeting, but we left before ordering because we couldn’t hear each other without yelling. I won’t be back.

Our waitress, Lindsey, was attentive to our needs. She was knowledgeable about the menu and was able to answer our questions and make appropriate recommendations. With a reservation, our seating was within minutes of our arrival. The food was fabulous, presented in an attractive manner and ample portions allowing me to enjoy my meal again the next day!

four girlfriends and I went to Amberjax Fish Market Grill for lunch as we hadn't seen each other in a while. I arrived early and was seated and ordered a great glass of wine to savor while I waited for the rest of my party to arrive. The weather was not going to be good so the place was not crowded as it normally would be. Our waitress was great and attentive and the food was fab as always! I had the salmon, cheesy grits and collard greens. Everything was cooked to perfection. We all enjoyed our lunch, company and meals. Thank you for a great time.

I really like this restaurant but had a bad experience this time. I specifically drove to this venue to have one particular item on the menu - smoked salmon. It came out plated as normal and I usually combine my ingredients and make it into a salad. Upon doing so, I began to chop up the salmon and saw numerous LARGE bones. I pull out a piece and show it to my waiter. This small piece has 5 obvious bones protruding from it. Without a word, he picks up my plate and vanishes to the kitchen. A few minutes later a manager comes over and says “I understand your salmon had a bone in it. Fish are going to have bones.” I was appalled. 1) I have had fish before and understand that it is not practical to assume that every bone will be removed but do not need a chastisement on being disappointed at finding bones in my fish 2) When I pointed out that I have had this dish at this restaurant dozens of times but had never had such a plethora of bones, he admitted he had not looked at the piece returned to the kitchen and assumed it was only a bone or two. 3) He said he would revisit with the staff the importance of checking for bones before the smoking process. Steve Wonder could have seen those large bones. It was obvious they didn’t even try. 4) He said he would take care of my lunch and began to walk away. I replied that I came there to eat & pay for lunch. He said he would not charge me for my lunch and walked away! No offer to replace the salmon with another one nor an offer to select something else from the menu. Just that he wouldn’t charge me for the salmon full of bones that I hadn’t even started eating!!!!!
Amberjacks - you must do better. Restaurants close in that center left and right. Your food is normally pretty good but your service isn’t. I was just there with a part of 7 the Sunday before last and each member of the party expressed concerns about foods items delivered underprepared or not delivered at all, slow service, and inconsistencies in meal presentation.

The service was excellent and only surpassed by the quality and quantity of the food. The wedge salad was the best I have ever had. The salmon was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. The cup of Cole slaw was overflowing and the hushpuppies were tasty with a crunchy shell and moist inside. The fish and chips were comparable to what we had enjoyed when we lived in London. All-in-all, a great dining experience. I highly recommend Amberjax Fish Market Grill and will return whenever I can.

I frequent Amberjax often because of their great food and once again they didn't disappoint. This dinner was a business dinner and the staff was very helpful in with suggestions especially since our dinner companions were new to Amberjax. They were also mindful about keeping interruptions to a minimum which I really appreciated. Yet another reason why I keep going back. Keep up the great job!

Dined at Amberjax for the first time. Gary and Christina were our servers and although it was Christina’s first day, you couldn’t tell - she handled everything like a seasoned pro!
The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. We had oysters, fish & chips, salmon, and crab cake stuffed flounder. We shared a slice of bananas foster pie for dessert to add the perfect finishing touch! Will definitely add Amberjax to my list of go-to favorites.

We loved eating here! The food was incredible. I would highly recommend that management install changing tables in the bathrooms, though. And a warning to patrons: there's no changing table in the public restroom serving the general Trinity Grove area, either. Very surprising and inconvenient.

Disappointed! Made a reservation but was escorted to the worst table in the house. Lots of empty tables but they seated us 4 feet from the kitchen door where all of the food comes out. Very busy & high traffic area. We asked for another table & were seated out on the patio where the temperature made it a bit uncomfortable. Not to mention, in the “special occasion” part of the reservation, we noted that it was my wife’s birthday but no acknowledgment. Why ask if it means nothing?! Food was great but disappointing experience.

Gumbo had good flavor but more of a gravy consistency than most of the gumbo I’ve ever had. It had set in the back so long that it had skimmed over. Both bowls at our table had set awhile. The salad with grilled chicken came out without the grilled chicken, which they had to cook and then bring out. I usually get grilled fish and it’s always very tasty. Think I’ll go back to the fish! The acoustics are so bad we couldn’t hear across our round table for 5. Better for a table of two or a table of 4.
But I will go back because I’ve always been pleased before.

I ordered the catfish dish, which in my opinion was very pricey for one small piece of fish.

Patriece, Thanks you for the feedback. Every comment is invaluable in our ongoing efforts to improve. One of the things we have to always consider is that all of our fish is market fresh daily, and never frozen, so sometimes our prices ARE going to be a bit higher than some of our market competitors that use frozen and re-freshed seafood. We are sorry you felt the price was too high, but hope that to see you soon so we can help you find something that exceeds your expectations.

We were celebrating my husband's birthday with our 2 children (20) and (16). We started with Calamari which was fantastic, unfortunately the portion was a bit small. The clam chowder soup was perfect! The blackened red fish had just the right amount of spice! My son ordered the lobster roll w/butter and he it ate in less than 3 minutes, it was awesome! My husband had the whole fish, great flavor, and our sweet server filleted it at the table, but unfortunately it had too many small bones, not surprising. Lastly, my daughter had the Creole crab cake (hatch chili style), it was a bit small as an entree and it was just ok, not great. She should have ordered the Blue Maryland style crab cake. All the sides, fried okra, Mac & Cheese, red beans & rice were great! Our server presented my husband with a birthday chocolate cream cheese pie and it was super! Altogether, we had a great experience and would like to try other things on the menu!

The food was good and the service was great. The prices are comparable to other seafood places but their portions are much smaller compared to most. It is a cool area to go eat and walk around afterwards.

Well thank you for the review Kevin! We are glad you had a great time dining with us, though we do appreciate your concern with our portion sizes. One of our points of pride is that we use fresh daily seafood, and sometimes that comes with a higher internal cost than some other concepts. That cost does sometimes translate to having to find the right balance between price point and portion size. We hope next time we can guide you to something that will be as filling as it is affordable.
