If you’re looking for some great dockside restaurants to check out in Jacksonville, Florida, then you’re in luck. Jacksonville is the perfect place for those who love the boating life, with its proximity to the ICW, the St. Johns River and the Atlantic Ocean. So, let’s set sail and explore some of the best restaurants in the area that you can visit by boat!

First, we have Julington Creek Fish Camp, which is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Hurricane Grill & Wings. They’ve got a lunch and dinner menu featuring grilled salmon, buttermilk pan-fried chicken, Baja-style fish tacos, seared tuna, and an extensive wine, beer, and cocktail selection. Dock your boat at nearby Julington Creek Marina (pier 3) and pop in for a bite to eat before heading back to your private boat slip rental.

If you’re looking for stunning views and fresh seafood, look no further than Safe Harbor Seafood. Watch the boats unload the catch of the day before the kitchen cooks it up into delicious items like tacos, po’ boys, soups, baskets, and bowls. You can even take some fresh seafood back to your private boat slip rental or have it prepared for you. There’s a small dock available for first come, first serve service.

Last but certainly not least, we have Palms Fish Camp, located on the St. Johns River and Clapboard Creek. This joint has been named one of Jacksonville’s top dock and dine destinations, and it’s easy to see why. With wraparound decks and outdoor dining, it’s the perfect place to watch the sunset while chowing down on fresh Florida seafood, brick oven pizza, tacos, and Low Country seafood boils. Be sure to save room for dessert, because their key lime pie, baklava, and bread pudding are to die for!

Whether you’re just passing through, cruising the Great Loop, or hanging out at a boat lift for rent, these dockside restaurants are definitely worth a visit. So, hop aboard your boat and set sail for some delicious eats in Jacksonville, Florida!
