Requested downstairs as it was "supposed" to be more quiet. Not! There always seems to be a table of 10 or more which is always loud. Not a place to have a conversation, but great food.

I always enjoy this restaurant as a great option close to home. The food is always very good and good value too. The wine list is limited and a bit pricey for what it is, but its really not a big wine destination anyway. I don’t like chain restaurants and this place is a good option when I want something that is predictably good and not going to break the bank.

The Julington Fish Company is consistently superb. Early on, when they first opened, we experienced some glitches with a couple of servers and the occasional mistake with food ordered but since it has seemed to get better and better upon each visit. The "Whole Fish" is outstanding, several of the other fish choices are nice as well. The sides are always perfect, too. The wine selection is very good and the drinks such as Bloody Mary's with their spiced salt rim are tasty. If I had one nit to pick it would be that I would like raw oysters served on a bed of crushed ice rather than a plate. It can also get just a little loud due to the acoustics but this is not an issue for us. We plan to be regular guests here and it is worth the drive from Clay County.

I made a reservation for 715 and arrived on time. We had to wait for a table that I requested (never being there before, I just said upstairs with a great view.) We were seated inside by a window that overlooked the parking lot. I wish I would have requested outside dining because the noise level was too loud to have a normal conversation. Otherwise the food was amazing and our server was great.

We dine at Julington Creek Fish Camp regularly for great food and great atmosphere. We came by boat but had a difficult time finding dock space. Water access restaurants are sorely needed in Jax. Maybe you could partner with one of the marinas to provide a slip or two for dinner.

I'm sorry to say that our experience at the Julington Creek Fish Camp was simply not good. We were shocked when our meal was served. The pitiful pieces of what they called salmon looked as though they had been swept off the floor and thrown on the plate; they were obviously leftover pieces of bottom fish that were primarily brown inside. The vegetables were overcooked and looked like mush. The meal looked so unappetizing that we were tempted to just send it back and leave. We had eaten before at JCFC and the meal was fairly good. I don't know what happened in the kitchen, but I'm afraid this experience has totally changed our perspective of this restaurant. Although it's a nice waterfront place to get an informal meal, it's overpriced and definitely not worth the effort. The only good thing about the meal was the side salad. The waiter who served our food was sarcastic and basically had the attitude that it was just too bad if we didn't like the way the food looked or tasted. Otherwise, the selection of seafood cuts, and how the food is prepared and served on the plate definitely needs to be reworked completely. Sorry... we would have loved to say it was great, but it simply was not. I doubt we'll be returning anytime soon.

Had eaten at their other place in Neptune Beach the week before. It's a decent place, the Neptune Beach a bit better and more value. Everything here tasted fine, some things creative and tasty. Tried the oyster special app on half shelf in cream sauce. Oysters were chopped and no bigger than a pencil erasure amount per shell.. but tasty. LOUD!

We had a great experience as always at this location. Monica was a great server, and guided me towards the blackened Seafood Linguini. Dave, the house bartender (with chops) makes a terrific Old Fashioned. We will surely be dining here again.

My sister and I visited (I'm from the other side of the country) and had a wonderful meal. Our servers (tag-teaming) were lovely. One accidentally broke my wine glass into a plate of broiled seafood we ordered while telling us a story. He and his partner were so apologetic, but it was not a problem at all -- new meal and glass arrived quickly, and because of the little accident, we got to talk with both servers quite a bit. It was an enjoyable and memorable evening. The food was spectacular -- I haven't had scallops that good since childhood, and I have always lived in a coastal area (east and west). Everything was delicious.

We love going to the Fish Camp for date night. It’s located close to our home so we aren’t too far from the kids while we are out. We enjoy sitting outside (it’s way quieter than inside) and the food is really good! Their homemade Sangria is the best I have had at any restaurant around here and the ahi tuna entree is amazing. I recommend this place for a date night, night out with friends or a business gathering after hours. Great service all the time!

The noise level was obnoxious. My margarita tasted like sugar water. Fried green tomatoes were excellent. My blackened mahi was overcooked and had way too much salt. The texture was like swordfish. Crab cakes were average, not close to Maryland style. Hush puppies were the best thing we had and they were very good. The highlight of the night was the cheerful fast service by our server, Roxanne.

It was extremely noisy because people were yelling every time their sports team scored (or didn't). Having T.V's all over the restaurant detracts from having a nice meal. They need to decide what they want to be; a sports bar or a restaurant. The fried green tomatos were the worst I've ever had; tough, tasteless, the batter was like glue and they were covered in goat's cheese which they fail to mention on the menu and I personally dislike. The fish special was very tasty, as was the trout. Our server was nice, efficient and professional.
