We love supporting the mom and pop restaurants and wanted to try a new one near us, Sid and Linda's Seafood Market and Rest. in the BJ's plaza on Atl Blvd. I believe they were the former owners of Safe Harbor fish market in Mayport. It was a Saturday night and the place was hopping. They were a lot of people standing by the door, very busy and confusing waiting for take-out and tables, but there wasn't anyone to seat us or a sign that said "wait to be seated" or "seat yourselves". We waited maybe 2-3 minutes and the gal at the desk who was cashing out customers came from behind the desk and sat us. She was super nice, telling us who our waitress would be. Our waitress came a few minutes later, extremely friendly even though she must've been frazzled. We had fish sandwiches and they were great. Service really good, busy, noisy, my kind of place.
Besides the confusion at the front of the restaurant, the only other thing that I think they MUST get fixed before summer is the quality of the blinds in the dining room. They were pulled down all right but they have slats and the late afternoon, HOT, sun coming through the slats was unbelievable. They need complete black-out shades for the summer sun in the evening. It didn't feel like the air was on either. Super hot and uncomfortable.
Other than those 2 things, we really enjoyed it and will go back.
