Saturday night at JAX Beach makes dining out crazy...especially when you have a large group, so we opted to take a drive 5 minutes or so from Neptune Beach hoping to find a decent seafood restaurant that wasn't really expensive or insanely busy/crowded. We happened onto a large strip mall with several restaurants to choose from and we went with The Fish Co....good choice! Nice atmosphere inside, the hostess seated us and took a drink order immediately (bonus!). Our server appeared a few minutes later, explained the specials and recommended a few appetizers & entrees. Being from Maryland, was a little disappointed with the hush puppies...just didn't really have much of a flavor at all....but that was the only downside. I had the lobster tail (steamed perfectly) with mac-n-cheese and a Caesar salad, all hit the spot. A 12 yr old in our group who isn't a big eater got a seafood pasta that she really tore thru (must have been really good ;-). Bill wasn't over the top...overall great experience! Sure it's nice being able to walk to a restaurant from your hotel at the beach, but sometimes the weekend crowds can be a bit much. This place was definitely a great alternative!
