Seafood
Down old highway A1A in Palm Coast, you will find a cozy place also known as 'The Hammock'. There, nestled beneath large oak trees on a barrier island, is a little out of the way place we call 'The Shack'.

Head Chef Jay McNitt serves Florida's finest fresh seafood to enjoy while you relax on our spacious patio and listen to live music. Or enjoy the down home feel of our indoor dining area and full bar. Jay's signature dishes include Lobster rolls, our spectacular Crab Boil, and our line of made from scratch desserts, but everything is a treat at JT's.

Our servers earn their spots with extensive training and experience. They know seafood and our menu like the back of their hand, and they make sure every JT's customer is a repeat customer. They are backed by an expert team to optimize every step of your dining experience. From the appetizer to your refined entrée choice selection to after dinner drinks to watch the band, JT's is everything you want in a seafood restaurant and more.

    The food and service was excellent. The noise level is always a little too much and the air conditioning was also a bit chilly, but we go back often because of the value, the food and the service.

    Our meals were all delicious except did not enjoy the cole slaw. It tasted limp like it wasn't freshly made. Everything else from the fish, chowder, and shrimp plus great drinks was amazing! We will be back.

    I would recommend this place to anyone. Three tables came at the same time as we did and we were served our meal within 15 minutes. The food was delicious 😋 Our server, Michelle, was fantastic and answered all our needs. The live music added the final touch to our evening. Would definitely come again.

    Had a great time until the hostess told us we had to move over to picnic table because they had a reservation for our table. What we weren’t even done with our drinks plus it wasn’t even an hour. Our waitress didn’t even give us our bill. We didn’t move. I’ve never had that happen. Called to let manager know what happened and the girl answered the phone asked my name when I asked for manager she said there wasn’t one. Said I know who you are and hung up. That really ticked me off. I called back and did talk to manager . It’s a shame because we had a great meal and waitress was awesome.

    I ordered the fried shrimp platter and my wife the grilled shrimp platter and a side salad. Both servings of shrimp tasted very good. The servings of fries, hushpuppies and slaw were delicious. We have dined at the restaurant many times in the past and will return in the near future.

    Amy was a great server, though overall service was slow. We knew it would be going in, so we just ordered ahead every time she came by. We sat outside in February and were lucky enough to be close to a heater, so we were very comfortable. The live music on a Tuesday night was such a treat! The band was good but the African American lady singer was amazing! The food was delicious and prices were reasonable. Our favorite restaurant in Palm Coast!

    JT’s is a local treasure. Great seafood and a cool vibe. Many locals meet for drinks and music out back. Their homemade datil hot sauce is well known! Love this place and always go when I’m at the beach.

    This was our first visit to JT's and we were part of a larger group. The place itself is great, very basic, but plenty big enough for lots of people wanting to listen, and dance, to live music. Good choice of drinks with a happy hour ending at 6pm. Appetizers were good and great for sharing. I ordered the jerk chicken and was not impressed. It wasn't at all what I expected as it was very bland. The sides were very good. My wife had the chicken tenders, there was a lot of tender, juicy chicken. A friend had the chicken wings which were very good, and somebody else had a burger that was very good. I'm sure we'll go back and I'll try something else.

    We went as an extended family for dinner on a night Soul Fire was playing. The music was fun, energetic and the lead singer made the crowd feel involved. The food was excellent. We had everything from fried fish, shrimp, to shrimp Alfredo and chicken tenders. Everyone enjoyed their meals. One of our favorite restaurants. The location in the Hammocks is casual and perfect. Thanks you to Julia for great service.

    Everything was very good, they even took us earlier. The only negative and it was not a reflection on TJ's was people that didn't respect you from the point of they stood right in front of you an blocked your view and with the current atmosphere we didn't want a confrontation. Other than that it was a pleasant evening.

    Don’t trust their online menu. They handed us a “seasonal menu”. It was such a poor choice of foods we left before we ordered. We knew it was a dive, but the online menu sucked us in. Don’t bother with this dive.

  • Catering
    JT's does a limited number of offsite catering events throughout the year. To maintain the highest quality standards, Head Chef Jay McNitt is very particular about what catering events we take on, but if you have a large group that needs Flagler's best seafood, we are the only place to call.
  • Private party facilities
    JT's handles many private events. We have both inside and outside seating spaces available and can accommodate groups ranging in size from intimate gathering to full on corporate spectacles. Live Music and other entertainment can also be arranged.
