Service was a little rocky but the food was amazing. I enjoyed the crab stuffed flounder. My brother's fiancée had the meatloaf and she enjoyed it.
My daughter and I stopped in here for lunch. It is kind of off the road and inconspicuous but has a certain vibe about the exterior that draws you in. You walk in and we were seated mediately and they really weren't busy at all! There's an arcade with pool tables and look like other games. They have an oyster bar where they sell buckets of oysters and do the shocking and they have a full-service bar as well. Being that I was with my daughter I did not partake in any of that. But the waitress was spot on and very accommodating as my daughter is autistic and she did not mind that she ate off the children's menu even though my daughter is 18. That goes along way with me. So my daughter of course got her normal grilled cheese and fries and she brought my daughter cherries never questioned anything just had it spot on. For me she let me sub in a salad with brand new homemade blue cheese they had just made I am let me tell you that was some of the Best that I had ever tasted and the fresh salad was really good. My entrée was grilled season shrimp and broccoli to say the shrimp were perfect is even an understatement because they really were tasty and wonderful. The broccoli had a wonderful buttery garlic flavoring as well. The only reason I don't give them a five is the vibe that I got from the other staff other than my waitress but they are definitely worth another visit and I have no regrets
Love this place, another Mandarin hidden gems. Where else can you find an Oyster Bar serving bivalve molluscs from the Northeast, West Floria, Texas or Louisiana? Great staff & attention aimed to please. Nice area for the kinder to hang-out playing the various arcade games for prizes. Large variety in the menu & hefty servings for the hungry. For me though, bring on the OYSTERS, whether you like them slurpy, soft, medium or hard steamed with all the trimmings its where you go to recharge your manhood batteries Outdoor patio with TV's and weekend entertainment. Great hang-out and group party restaurant.
The only decent oyster bar I know in Jax. Service was good and the guy who shucked our oysters were very helpful and friendly. Fresh oysters!
