Our service and meals were excellent. Food had gorgeous presentation. Noise level was a bit loud, we had trouble hearing each other across the table.
Food is consistently excellent.
Service is "hit or miss"; this last occasion, service was very slow and inattentive.
We are traveling up north for the summer and our first stop was Ponte Vedra. Found this gem on Yelp and they were so right! Right on a lovely tidal river...it was a little cool and overcast for us to dine alfresco, but others did. They had heaters and lap blankets to warm those patrons!
Anyway, the dining room was inviting, comfortable, clean, open, with large windows all around so everyone can enjoy the light and lovely outdoor scenery! It was Friday night and the place was jumping! Will need to make reservations.
Menu was varied with lots of enticing options! We started with fried green tomatoes, which was delicious with overly generous portion. Table next to us had barbecued shrimp, which looked great too. Portions in general very generous, their wedge salad was no exception! For dinner my husband had a whole red snapper, he felt was slightly dry but nicely prepared and very flavorful...he devoured the whole thing! I had a special...flounder over veggies on a pablano pepper smear with a delicate, sauce over top. It all worked deliciously! They had a great selection of wines and beers too.
Parking is at a premium so will need to valet, my husband is usually resistant to this, but was no big deal.
Overall a great experience, thank you.
Always a pleasure going to this restaurant. Especially enjoy the seafood dishes and the famous bread pudding is so darned GOOD!
Great food, service couldn’t of been any better, Danny was excellent. We are regulars, thanks again for a great experience.
Wonderful food! Wonderful service! Love this place!
The only restaurant that I have found that will fry food for gluten free patrons! Love this place!!!
Shrimp & Grits are the best!!! Noise level is high so conversation can be difficult.
It was a lovely evening when we dined with our friend from VT, so we ate outside. Dining outside is preferable not only for the water view but also because the inside is noisy and those benches are not comfy.
Fabulous! Food, location, service, ambiance were excellent.
Great place for fabulous favorites. House specials like the salmon omelette was outstanding
Great as usual. Went for Sunday lunch and was pleasantly surprised at the number of quality Brunch items on the menu. Omelets, French toast etc., i.e. not all fish based. Great to dine in an establishment where the staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. Five stars!
Very nice restaurant in a casual and lively setting. Service was great, food was as well.
Food was great. Place was crowded and our server was forgetful or slow on a few items
Always delicious. We look forward to a meal here every time we are in the area.
Ordered the special - seared sheep head fish with goat cheese potatoes. So very delicious. Will definitely go back!
Outstanding as usual!
Food was terrific...
Amazing restaurant highly recommend!
Everything was on point, from the perfectly friend hush puppies to the frosted beer glasses. My wife doesn't even like cole slaw but she took mine away from me! Superb food.. don't forget to lounge on the dock too.
My husband wanted me to come here with him for dinner. He goes every year with his golf buddies and loves it. In my opinion, it would be a good casual lunch spot. The food was fresh and local. I had Oysters on the half shell and the Ahi tuna...they were both very good quality and very fresh. It was a cool night so we couldn't eat outside, but it did look like there was a pretty outdoor seating area. All in all, I would go back for lunch and beers and hope to eat outdoors.
Wife has celiac so we are always looking for gluten free places. This is one of our favorites when in the area for date night. Staff is laid back but knowledgable of gluten free. They have a gluten free fryer, get the artichoke hearts! Also it’s a scratch kitchen so they can adjust but there are some straight gluten free options. We have eaten there a few times, always had a good experience. Just don’t go without reservations.
The food and service are always excellent. I wish they had a full bar though.
First time diners. Loved the vibe, a little funky, excellent food, very fresh nice wine list
Excellent food and service. We will definitely return!
Top notch food in a cool atmosphere! The Blackened Mahi was out of this world.
Great food but disappointed with 2 things: made a reservation for outside seating. There was none available when we got there. I told the hostess I had specified outside seating on reservation online, she said " well, we don't really look at that". Really?
Also. Waiter was good at 1st but never came back to refill drinks or bring Bill. We had to ask for both. Not sure if I'll return....
Waitress was excellent. Had the shrimp appetizer. Cobbler with ice cream is a must
Palm Valley is always a popular spot so reserve early, especially for weekends. They have inside and outside-deck dining. Donny was an attentive and knowledgeable server. Drinks arrived quickly and the food quality was excellent. Because parking is limited, valet is required for their lot. Would recommend and will go back.
The blackened Mahi over grits with Tasso gravy and collard greens was outstanding, as always!!
As always...a great place to have a great meal!
Our favorite restaurant in all of JACKSONVILLE.
As usual the Pal Valley delivered a great dining experience for us and our friends. My wife calls the Shrimp and Grits the best she ever had. The fish is always fresh and fairly priced.
Spectacular fresh fish in a nice setting! Wonderful service!
Fun, friendly place with excellent local fish and seafood. Scenic riverfront location.
This is a quaint and popular local place where you can pull your boat up to the dock. The food was tasty and creative but a bit overpriced. The scallops were delicious as was the special of the day- Mahi Mahi. Keep to the specials and you will enjoy this restaurant.
outstanding! Lawrence was our waiter and is just amazing....
Great place to go for dinner or lunch. Love the food and atmosphere!
We sat for a good 10 minutes before I flagged down the hostess to send our server over. That is not the norm when we go though. Great wine selection! My fish tacos were amazing as usual and my husbands lunch special was delicious! This place is consistently excellent.
We love Palm Valley fish camp! Always great food and service. Our neighborhood favorite !
