The Blue Fish is deservedly one of the better seafood restaurants in Jacksonville, Florida. It is a casual, albeit higher end eatery, serving good fresh seafood in a facility with a nice, modern ambiance. The shrimp I had was a 7.5 on a scale of 10 - very good, but perhaps a little less flavorful than I would have liked. The fresh fish my wife had was very good, blackened nicely and very flavorful. I'd say the sides were a bit less special than the main course, but still acceptable for the price. Overall, don't expect a top of the line experience, but you can bet on an acceptably tasty meal in nice surroundings with pretty attentive service.

Visiting our daughter and son-in-law a few times each year, we enjoy taking them to different and eclectic restaurants in the top 25 of Jacksonville...tonight was a little off that path with focus on seafood and near where our daughter first lived in town. When we first walked in I almost did a turnaround, you know the place...too loud, too pretentious, too high cost...but that was first look and I always give something called "the Blue Fish" a chance. Thank goodness we did, of course we also had 3-year old granddaughter with us. Our waiters, led by Donald K. was attentive and knew every bit of the menu, plus the advance team ordered early food and drinks timely and accurately...the fish options were excellent and the preperation choices exquisite. Plus, they were not put off by the foodies in our table or the three year old who knows her way around seafood. Cheers all around, well worth the stop, but perhaps the open patio in back for quieter time.

We had a dinner here after office hours...

The food choices were decent, taste good and of course the servings were big! Their desserts are also great. Efficient and friendly staff as well :)

Feedback: I had to bring home my food as I cannot finish them all. After an hour, the shrimp and scallops already had a funky smell :( and the place is a pricey too...

A very enjoyable place with a very interesting menu. Have never had a bad meal here. It's fun on weekends with music.
