Great place to enjoy the freshest seafood out there. My wife and I drive over an hour away just for the pleasure to eat here. There is a wait most days - but well worth it.

We were on the way to the ferry and Safe Harbor was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. My wife and I both hard the grilled shrimp with hush puppies, cole slaw and enough fries to satisfy a teenagers appetite. Our son, who had the Fish and chips also enjoyed his meal. The service was friendly and quick.... More

Nothing fancy, just excellent sea food right off the boats tied to the dock. Traditional southern sea food. I've tried everything on the menu but always return to my favorite, the fried shrimp dinner. Excellent. Very casual. T-shirt and flip flop territory.

For the freshest seafood around, this is the place. Most any type of fish is available, and prepared any way You want. In addition, the best hush puppies you will every eat. Make this a must stop..

Safe Harbor in Jacksonville, Florida has two locations and we've dated in both. The Mayport location has a larger seafood market with a smaller dining area inside and a nice balcony dining area outside in view of the docks and fishing vessels. The Beach Avenue location has a seafood display but concentrates on dining both inside, on the covered patio,... More

As a family, we like to have a good meal at a decent price. Safe Harbor provides excellent seafood either eating in or just buying fresh for home cooking.😀

The market at Safe Harbor has the best seafood you can get in the area. The docks behind the restaurant are for shrimp boats, so the Mayport shrimp are as fresh as can be, and Mayport shrimp simply taste better than Gulf shrimp or any imports. Go fishing and come up empty? Head to Safe Harbor, and buy whole redfish!... More

The blackened fish sandwich was over cooked, french fries were cold and you could taste the fish on the fries as well. We have eaten here many a times and the food has always been good, not sure what happened this time? The steamed shrimp was excellent and of course the sweet tea.

Thank Todd W
