The food is always well prepared, delicious and served hot. Our server was efficient and pleasant despite how crowded the restaurant was - surprisingly for a Sunday night.. Unfortunately, she neglected to tell our dinner companions there was a $12 upcharge for choosing snapper versus the cod. The manager was very apologetic and accommodating.
As mentioned, it was terribly over crowded, too noisy for dinner conversation. They neglected to address our birthday celebration, and since it was so noisy nd crowded we just left.
We do like the food here, but It was too noisy and crowded.
Perhaps during the week would make for a more calm and relaxed dinner experience.

We love this restaurant. The scallop appetizer is probably the best thing I've ever eaten. It is a vibrant and energetic environment - not conducive to proposing or breaking up, but otherwise a fun and delicious place in close proximity to the beach and shops.

Pleasant greeting, on time seating and prompt waitress appearance for introduction of self and menu. Food is always well prepared and tastefully presented in a timely manner and this time did not disappoint. A favorite location for out of town guests. A comfortable place for family. Dining here is a treat.

Atmosphere and food were really good. We sat outside. Drawback was in service area. My wife and I ordered each an entree and side salad; shared mussels for appetizer. They all came at practically the same time. The server helper took the main entrees back to kitchen to keep warm because we had too many dishes on table already. Also, mussels shells were only able to be discarded onto small roll plate. Apparently there was another mussels dish of exactly same size as the dish containing the mussels that was not presented to us.

Good food, horrible customer service. Took my gf there for her bday. Took to flagging down the server to order then to close out. Made us feel that he forgot about us. Actually another server had to close us out. Made up for it by going to cantina Louie for a margarita. They have great service!

Fun evening! We went early on a Saturday evening for a family dinner and had a great time. We were seated on the second floor but away from the windows so we didn't have much of a view. The food was outstanding and we all loved our selections. The servers were very attentive as was management. In fact, if we had any negatives it would be that there seemed to always be someone stopping by our table to see if we needed anything! We were full from our meals but couldn't pass up the white chocolate bread pudding. It is to die for!!

We never knew who our waiter/waitress was, there were 4 people who were constantly stopping by our table. Not much coordination, no one knew if we had ordered, and we were asked multiple times what we would like. The food was outstanding, though!

There is so much energy in this area of Atlantic Beach and North Beach Fish Camp is in the center of it all. Their house merlot (did not get the name) was excellent. We ordered fresh catch, snapper, but it had run out and trigger fish was substituted. We were curious why snapper had run out when we were dining early, but triggerfish was excellent too. Took home dessert. Never disappoints!

North Beach Fish Camp never disappoints. Service is top notch, food is excellent. My favorite items on the menu are the grilled oysters and the blue crab cakes. Whatever the fresh catch is it will be delicious. Equal attention is given to sides, desserts and cocktails.

Normally my favorite restaurant. Went there on New Year’s Day for dinner. Snapper special was over cooked and required a knife to cut it. First bad meal I’ve ever had. Plus the gift card I tried to use had not been issued which means they basically didn’t add the value to the card after it was purchased. Also usually too cold there.

I had the seared tuna and hubby had crab cakes - all was delicious.... we were charged for bread which Was kinda cheesy.... our waitress was great!

This visit was for party of six and all was fine. Used valet parking ticket. I have visited about a dozen times and my only real complaint is that was loud--especially given the fact that it was a football bowl weekend. It would be nice if the management could find a way to soften the noise level. FYI--my GF thought the Old Fashioned drink was much too sweet; my Negroni was fine.

Stick with fried or broiled combo dinners they are the best value and quite good usually. Specials are generally overpriced, modest portions of mediocre fare. Appetizers can be great or poor. Servers try very hard to keep patrons happy but early reservations are key if you want to dine at a “normal” time and things can get a bit chaotic at popular times. Speciality cocktails are a treat but a bit pricey. Draft craft beer selection is very limited. Overall, I’ve had good meals and disappointing meals there.

North Beach Fish Camp was a random Google find in a little tourist section of Jacksonville, FL. We made reservations, but as we were walking around, we kept encountering this wonderful seafood smell that attracted us. We were regretting our reservation until we found that this is where the aroma was coming from! The place was so fantastic, we went two nights in a row.

MAKE A RESERVATION!!! There is no way you can just walk-in to this place!

Awful Octopus Appetizer
The Octopus appetizer is why we went, and we were disgusted with it. Few restaurants serve octopus because it is so hard to tenderize and North Beach Fish Camp failed miserably. The minute pieces of octopus mixed in with large white bean were crunchy as if they had been cooked to a crisp. For $12 we felt cheated. The boiled seafood platter was only average, nothing very special. The "mixed vegetables" were zucchini and onions mixed together, another disappointment.
