Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Being a former resident of Cape Cod, I know good seafood and this is the place for it! Best fried clams south of Boston. Jennifer makes you feel like family visiting for dinner.

“Great Lunch”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Great for lunch, food was outstanding but a bit pricey and no wine or beer. Scallops and Cams, fresh and lightly battered. Lobster roll very good.

A true Mom and Pop operation. She's up front he's the chef.

“True New England Seafood”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

A La Carte at Jax Beach is by far the best place to find true New England seafood. Their belly Ipswich fried clams are the BEST! Not to mention their clam chowder or fresh lobster roll. It is so GOOD! I just wish that they would now make fried onion rings. It's the place to eat for authentic New England fried seafood here in Florida. No one can even come close in the area. So worth every penny!

“Great New England food”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

For those of us folks who grew up on New England seafood and now live in Florida, this small lunch restaurant is the perfect place for fried clams, lobster rolls and chowders in the Jacksonville area. This "mom & pop" operation provides excellent fresh seafood which the owners advise is regularly flown to them from the Northeast. My fried clams and my wife's lobster roll were outstanding. Go Red Sox!

“A Taste of home”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

They import their clams from Ipswich Mass. They are the best fried whole belly clams south of the north shore of Massachusetts. I grew up 20 miles from Ipswich and love the seafood. They also sell "Moxie" soda, a drink not for the faint of heart. Go whenever I can. They have very limited hours
