Clark's Fish Camp: "good fried food, unique setting" Clark's Fish Camp Tip by grimss

Clark's Fish Camp, Jacksonville: 6 reviews and 0 photos

While I certainly wouldn't call it the best restaurant in JAX, it certainly is one of the more unique. Most of the restaurant juts out over Julington Creek on a floating dock. Diners out on the deck can watch recreational boaters coming back after a day on the water, (but watch out for the black flies--ouch!) while diners inside can study an amazing array of stuffed beasties that cover the ceiling and walls. Otherwise, the decor is simple, with wood-slat tables and rolls of paper towels for napkins. This is a good famliy spot, as the portions are generous, and mom and dad can enjoy a cold pitcher while the kids check out the animals. Do note, though, that it's ALWAYS packed, and parking--despite a lot-- can be a real challenge.

Favorite Dish: The grilled scallops are very tasty, as is most of the fried fish. If you're hungry, order a grilled quail on the side--juicy and flavorful. The smoked fish dip is okay, but not as wonderful as they claim. Come here for good down-home southern cooking.
