This place is good old fashion fun with tasty dishes from the coast and tropics. Good food, good service, lively outdoor scene.

Their happy hour features a different menu item daily at a great price. Try their Firecracker Shrimp, Lobster Roll, Mixed Grill and their Salmon.

Took our neighbors to dinner as a thank you for taking care of our house while we were away. They had not been to Pusser’s but had it on their list. Food was excellent; our waitress, Polly was great; overall experience was spot-on. We will be back!

We took my in-laws and sister in-law there after just getting back into town. It was the last night for the special (steak and lobster). To our disappointment, we were told they didn't have any more to serve us. My husband and I had been there previously with our neighbors for that special. We were so glad that the special had been extended for the month of October.
Last January, we were in Annapolis, Maryland, and enjoyed having that same special at Pusser's. Why extend the special if you aren't going to be able to serve it the last night of the special.
Several of us ended up having the Firecracker shrimp. The shrimp was very good.

Our 2nd time dining at Pussers after moving here from Chicago. Beautiful waterfront restaurant. Many food choices, great prices and food cooked to perfection. Having dined at most of the top restaurants in the Chicago land area, Pussers does not disappoint!

Nice experience — we asked to be seated outside, since it was so nice to be outdoors! We had a party of 5 and we felt at times we were ignored because we were the only table outside! Good food for the price!

We were seated and after 20 minutes with no waiter stopping by our table (but plenty hanging around the front desk), we left to go eat somewhere else. Too many places to go to take this kind of lousy service.

It was my husbands 71st birthday, & we were staying at the Sawgrass Marriott to celebrate
After being marshals for the TPC for many many years, I always told him I wanted to try it. However, he doesn't like crowds or waiting, so previous tries were unsuccessful.
This time it was perfect. The ambiance, & the food was great. Our waiter was excellent, & was helpful with suggestions
Overall, we will return again & again when we come up to visit our grandkids in Jax Beach
Thank you
Vanessa Caffrey

Overall, not a good experience. Our reservation was for 6 PM, we didn't get served till after 7 PM. And the food was not hot. What was supposed to be a filet , looked more like a hamburger. The lobster was OK, not great. It was the surf and turf special for 20 bucks. If you want to taste a good surf and turf, go to Brio.

We had our "short notice" wedding ceremony with a few friends in attendance to witness our vows. Pusser's & our waitress Kelsey were very helpful in pulling it off, as friends decorated the tables. The whole experience became more special than we imagined. We both agreed afterward how great the restaurant choice was, by the windows, overlooking the lagoon. And they saved our left behind items for us to retrieve later.

I was visiting my son and daughter-in-love from Denver, CO. My son was working late and she came up with Pusser's for dinner. It was a lovely experience, good food, good conversation and an overall nice evening! Our server was exceptional! She made sure we were comfortable and taken care of! The blackened scallops were delicious as were their signature cocktail! There is small gator that lives in their pond which was really exciting! Pusser's is my new favorite so I will definitely be back!

Hostess had absolutely no personality. Didn't evening knowledge us, smile or say hello. when we came in with a reservation. If you're going to hire kids, at least train them. Server was very nice. Actual service, somewhat below par. Food fine if you're going to a sports bar. Have no idea what happened with the steak but it was purple/gray. Just another every day, overpriced upscale fast food restaurant.

We have dined here many times before and always raved about the food and experience. Unfortunately the last two experiences were somewhat shoddy. Seems as if the waitresses have tables all over the place and therefore are unable to provide the service expected like previously. This was a birthday celebration as scheduled on the comments section of our open table reservation. Our waitress didn't even ask us if we wanted desert! It will be a cold day in hell before we dine there again!!!!!

Firecracker shrimp is the best in town. You have to drink a "Painkiller" - one of the best rum drinks around!

This was our first time to Pussers. It was a Saturday night date with my wife and we just wanted to try something new. The ambiance is nice with a small pond complete with turtles and a croc. Kids threw food to the croc for entertainment. My wife had a Mojito and enjoyed it. The She Crab soup was good as was the fish and chips and the coconut shrimp. We declared Oussers a "ago again" spot. We thought the service was prompt but inconsistent. No bread on our table although they brought the plates. No salt and pepper. Attentive service just not above and beyond.
