Jacksonville Fish Camps - Which one is best?


I will be visiting Jacksonville this weekend and want to get some good seafood. Which of these places would you most highly recommend?

-Outback Crab Shack
-Whitey's Fish Camp
-Clark's Fish Camp
-Singleton's Seafood Shack
-LuLu's Waterfront Grille
-Palm Valley Fish Camp

Or is there somewhere not on the list that you would recommend? Thanks!!!

  1. I've always loved Clark's Fish Camp, but I haven't been to the others you mentioned. We also love Saltwater Cowboy's in St. Augustine, not too far away from Jax.

    1. I mostly like Outback Crab Shack although I have heard it is hit or miss. I always seem to get there at the right time.
      Singleton's is good too but like lots of them, mostly fried.
      Heard Palm Valley Fish Camp is a little pricey and higher end. Haven't been there yet but have been meaning to.
      Good luck!

      1. I was born and raised in Jacksonville. Moved in 1991, and occasionally go back. The only name I recognize on your list is Singleton's. So if longevity is what you are looking for try that one.

        1. Of these, I like Clark's and Whitey's, myself. If you're west of the river, try Whitey's - way down south of O.P. If east of the river, try Clark's in Mandarin. Clark's is not an easy place to find, though.

          1. re: mezzrow

            In order I would reccommend:
            Outback Crab Shack
            and then Clarks- I find it expensive and the food less well prepared that the other two.
