This was my go to place when out of town guests visit. I now have to go back and see if last nite was a fluke. Apps were very good and the sides were also. Our main course... whole snapper... was lousy... it was small, over cooked and had no seafood flavor... had no flavor at all. We had desserts and they were OK at best. My guest suggested going somewhere else next time.

I am from out of state and come in once a year for business. My friends and I eat here every year, and then I go home and rave about this restaurant back home all year until I come back to est there again. it is simply the best food of any restaurant anywhere. Very few meals can you say everything was amazing from appetizer to entree to dessert, but you can at the Fish Camp. Highly recommend the Fried Green Tomatoes as appetizer, the scored fried fish for an entree (one of the best things I have ever eaten), and save room for the Bread Pudding for dessert.

Great place by the water. I have never been disappointed they always get it right. My only wish is the building itself was bigger and they had an outdoor patio on the intercostal. Not sure how that happened

❤️🍤🍻🌅🌺We ❤️ dining at Palm Valley Fish Camp. We are regulars and took our out of state guests to enjoy the fish and the lovely Inter-Coastal waterway view in a casual and clean setting. The deep water Royal Red Shrimp appetizer was just as described. Sweeter and more of a lobster taste. I added the slaw and red potatoes to make it a meal. Service is always excellent. They have a dock for boaters to stop and dine or for diners to step out and take a nice picture. They have a quiet and picturesque outdoor dining area to enjoy when the weather is nice. They fill up fast at dinner time as very popular. They take reservations, which is another reason we go!!

We have visited Palm Valley Fish Camp many times. This past visit did not live up to our expectations. The cod special which we assumed would be extraordinary, did not appear to be as fresh as we had become accustomed to at this restaurant. The Red Shrimp roll, however, was delightful.

Table too small for number of guests. Hostess indifferent to request for more suitable table that was available. Food quality not up to what we were used to at this restaurant. Price was pretty high for the quality and preparation. In particular, broiled seafood platter looked to be boiled instaed. Scallops were tough and chewy. Did not compare with previous visits. “A restaurant is only as good as the last meal you had there.”

Always great food. The fried shrimp is the best ever!!! My "non fish eating" wife always has their pan fried chicken breast... and loves it. The only draw back is the parking. It is the worst of any business I've ever used. The poor kid parking cars was at a total lost. And, there appears to be no way of fixing the situation. Go for the food and service... outstanding.

Food was Amazing!!! Definitely one of the best fish camps in Jacksonville/Ponta Vedra area. Service was nice & atmosphere is beautiful & relaxing, right on the waterway. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a tasty bite... My only complaint, I took my grandmother to celebrate her 87th birthday & was hoping they would maybe bring her out a special dessert & candle so we could sing Happy Birthday but we were politely told they dont do anything special for birthdays or celebrations.

We highly recommend Palm Valley Fish Camp! It’s not fine dining, but everything is excellent. The starters we thoroughly enjoyed were the calamari and the beet salad. Our meals were the popular shrimp and grits (about a dozen nice size shrimp and excellent grits) and the fish special of the evening. Both were terrific. We shared the bread pudding for dessert- scrumptious! Service was excellent and the dining room is very clean.
