Food was more like bar food. They have two menus. Myself and my guest both ordered off of both menus so we can speak to both. The scallops were delicious however all the other stuff on the plate was not great. The chorizo took over the entire flavor of the dish which was unfortunate. And the chickpeas were bland. The carrot stuff was delicious as well. Great things on the plate but not well balanced. Beautiful view. Excellent service! Our waitress was phenomenal and she had plenty of help. They accommodated us to order off the other menu as well (which is not where we were seated to order from). The bar food options were delicious for bar food! I wouldn’t order off the fancy menu again.

We went on a Thursday night and it was so quiet and the staff was very attentive. I would recommend it for any occasion. The view was very beautiful!

Had a great dinner on the patio outside. Dinner was very good and generous portions.
I had the shrimp and grits, very smooth with just a hint of spice to balance the creamy grits and greens.
Local beer was fantastic. The Bourbon aged beer had an almost sweet finish. Very smooth.

First and foremost from the initial walking in the hostess was extremely helpful patient-friendly and went above and beyond and each person who had anything to do with their service after that was extremely fun interactive fast and helpful.

Poor service, poor food ....ten minutes before our server arrived to our table. She seemed impaired, spilled water on my lap and laughed saying she was clumsy. Food arrived and one dish was cold/ undercooked. Server did not return until she brought is our bill....just terrible.

Got the first crack at the salmon and the hot bar for Sunday brunch. Everything was perfect. Only thing I wish they had was a better bread selection. Favorite item was the honey glazed ham

Very nice views on the St. John’s river. There is a bar in the back where you can either eat dinner or go for cocktails before or after. Ample outdoor options as well.

Beautiful Sights
We came here on our last stay in Jacksonville because it was soo beautiful here on Open Table. We made reservations for 9:30pm. but they call and asked us if we could move our time up because they closed at 9:30pm. which was odd that it was an option if that's when they closed. We moved it to 9pm. and arrived a little early for their convenience. The restaurant was very quiet as it was two other tables in the dinning room. We were asked to sit in the bar room because they were open to 10pm. but declined because the seats were high tops and I HATE those. We were a part of four and most of those tables were two tops. Our server was great and told us all about the menu and specials. We had a few drinks, ordered from the fixed menu.. Except my husband, he wanted a burger. The salmon dish was perfect, the burger was great and the shrimp and grits were ok. Our desserts were a bit of a let down but we understood as we found out that they were store bought and not baked in house. We tried the key lime and chocolate, I recommend the chocolate.

Fish tacos were yummy. My husband enjoyed his crabcake sandwich. I also tried one of the brews which was very good. We sat by the windows and had a great view of the river, bridge, and downtown Jacksonville. Beautiful!

I was so happy they could accommodate my party of 12. The food was awesome except I didn’t care for the bacon jam in the shrimp and grits. However I loved it on the fried green tomatoes . The atmosphere was great and our waiter the best !

First time I came outstanding food and service (week before on Tuesday) this time order the exact same thing. Potatoes not the same could not eat. Our waiter apparently was some where else, we had to ask for everything repeatedly and we finally received our wine after asking for the manager, she gave us a dessert free, but after stressing over the service. Will properly not go back

It was a beautiful evening & the view out the wall of windows was great. It was a nice place to converse because the noise level was low. We had excellent service from Zac & really enjoyed our dinner there before driving a short distance to the concert hall.

Not a good meal! All three of us were very unhappy with our meals. Fishy not fresh shrimp and dry chicken were not good. There is no excuse for such a fine place to serve such crappy food. Don't pick this place.

Food was well below our expectations. My wife had a fillet and it was thin cut and well done, she ordered Medium rare. I had the chicken diner and the coating was tough and the potatoes was hard. Skip this restaurant.

Tried a red and a white they listed in their pre-fix but could not drink either one. I wonder if both were left from yesterday. The both tasted spoiled. Will not return, since wine is an Integral part of our dining experience. The waiter did not offer an adjustment for either one. On a positive note, the bourbon beer tasted excellent.
