Beachside Seafood


One of my former tenants came back into town for his first post transplant evaluation at Mayo Clinic.  He needed to have someone stay with him after his liver biopsy so he had asked me if I could help him out for a few hours that day.   When I picked him up, he was ready for some lunch.

I'm always ready for lunch!

I had no idea where to take him, however.  Most of my regular places just weren't to his liking, I knew this from our chats when he was my tenant.  I hoped that if I went down to the beach something would catch my eye as the perfect place to take him.


It was about 2pm, so not necessarily prime lunch time, so I wasn't surprised to see only a few cars in the drive of this seafood restaurant.  I didn't let the lack of cars deter me from stopping in.



I'm so glad I didn't.  I had a fish sandwich and my friend had a blue crab sandwich. We both had really good meals.  Of course I peeked at everyone elses food as they were being served and I saw some great things coming out of that small kitchen.

I totally forgot to take a photo of the market area, but boy it was really great looking.  I need to tell my husband about it.



This was their indoor dining area.  There's two more tables that you can't see and that's it.  Teeny place inside but lots of room outside.  But it was just too hot to be outside!

It was a really nice place, our waiter was fab and the food was really good.  If you're ever in Jacksonville, I recommend this place :)

Have a great Labor Day Weekend!

Sometimes you just don't know! How sweet of you to spend time with him. I'm always ready for lunch too!
