Yes the line can be long. But it's totally worth it!!!! Had blackened Snapper and it was the best! I will definitely be making the trip back.

Whenever we come to Florida we try to eat at Safe Harbor at least once a month since we stay 70 miles from Mayport still the best seafood around always get a combo basket, if you want good green beans go to Georgia, but if seafood your thing look no further

You can't get fresh seafood any fresher than this. Great/fast service too. We arrived early to beat the lunch crowd. Glad we did. There was a generous line when we left. Will definately return!

This is a large seafood market with food served near the water. Very basic, patio style. The area has a lot of birds to watch while you eat. The food is good. We had fried food and it wasn't greasy. Served hot and fresh. The clam chowder is outstanding. If you want to take fresh fish home they are very... More

Love, love, love going to Safe Harbor twice a month to get our "fix" of the trigger fish with grilled shrimp basket. We sit outside and watch the boats go in and out. We can't wait for the new fish market to open across the street. Don't pass up this place...the best seafood in the area.

Went here for the first time last weekend and got there just in time to miss the long line. You order at the counter and then find a seat which can be hard if they're busy. It's very casual compared to the other fish camps in town. The fried shrimp was excellent but I've had better grouper and the green... More

When we arrived for dinner, the line was out the door and when we left, there was still a line out the door. Surprised how fast the line moved.We had shrimp baskets , one fried, one broiled. Both excellent.

A tuna burger! It was great served hot and delicious with all the trimmings along with a favorite beverage. The outside on the water environment was exquisite as well. Lots of families were there as well. After your meal, it was a treat to go back into the fish market as you left and took home fresh seafood for home.... More

Fantastic, fresh-off-the-boat-seafood. They are a fish/seafood market with on site dining outside. Plan ahead for lunch, the lines are usually very long because of the awesome food. Definitely try the Mayport Shrimp, you will not regret it.

The food is amazing but you have to wait in line in the fish market to order, and most of the time there is quite a line, at times out the door. Better to get someone to hold a table they fill up quickly as well and just order for them. But you can not get better, fresher seafood cooked... More
