A growing trend in cuisine is seafood dishes! We’ve all loved it for so long, but it seems like wherever we turn, there are new twists and takes on traditional seafood dishes. Ponte Vedra is a great location for seafood since it’s right on the beach in Jacksonville, Florida. We curated a list of some good seafood spots in the city.
Here is our guide to your next crab fest!
Two Dudes Seafood Restaurant PV
This seafood restaurant opened up in 2013. Ponte Vedra residents and visitors love Two Dudes Seafood. The seafood is fresh and never frozen, giving you the best quality fish, shrimp, and more. What do they have? We thought you’d never ask!
Seafood lovers would enjoy the Fried Grouper Sammich. It’s a fresh filet of Grouper and it’s deep fried and breaded in Panko bread crumbs! And for asides, we’d get the coleslaw and sautéed veggies!
Palm Valley Fish Camp
You might be wondering what the fuss is all about here at Palm Valley Fish Camp. It has rave reviews for a reason, and that’s because it has delicious seafood and amazing views!
From the gator to the shrimp, they have it all. We like the grilled octopus and white bean salad. Another favorite here is the crispy calamari that’s fried to a crispy, golden brown that’s served with a spicy tomato sauce!
Next on our list is Aqua Grill, a large, and absolutely gorgeous eclectic spot in Ponte Vedra. It’s been voted Top 25 Restaurants in Jacksonville, and even received a Certificate of Excellence form Trip Advisor. As you can see, Aqua Grill is a top contender for seafood restaurants.
Make your reservations online and get ready for a great experience. The lobster is moist and tender and goes great with a glass of their red wine!
Pusser's Bar & Grille Ponte Vedra Beach Restaurant
Pussers Bar and Grille is amazing and serves top notch seafood. They have daily specials, hold private events, and even do delivery.
If you’re not sure what to get, we would start with their famous Pusser’s Crab Dip. It’s an award-winning dip that is a lump of crab meat, peppers, onions, and tomatoes in a creamy cheese dip!
Lulu's Waterfront Grille
Everybody loves Lulu’s. Good vibes, fun times, and tasty food. Although the seafood is great (please, get the shrimp!), we really like the cocktail menu as well.
So while you’re ordering your shrimp cocktails, try one of their drinks! We like the Pineapple Margarita! Oh, and don’t forget the crab corn fritter. It’s served with lemon datil aioli!
