Seafood Restaurants in Fernandina Beach

Select Local Merchants

The Bonefish Grill on San Jose Boulevard has a polished, casual feel to it, with gleaming dark woods and light oak tables that set the stage for a relaxed, slightly refined night out. The bar area is frequently energetic and noisy, with fresh cocktails made from hand squeezed juices, muddled herbs, small batch bourbons and local craft beers. With recessed sconce lighting and wood floors, the dining area is inviting, though the main draw are dishes like the Fontina Chop, a boneless pork chop with fontina cheese, garlic and prosciutto, served with a mushroom and marsala wine sauce. Bonefish Grill is a neighborhood eatery at its finest, where friends can gather, couples can canoodle and singles mingle at the bar.

Bluefish Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Avondale is an upscale seafood operation in the heart of the historic shopping district. From raw oysters served on the half shell to more fiery options, Bluefish offers a unique selection of seafood to choose from. There’s the Cuban Mojo Grouper, covered in a lime mojo sauce and offered with Cuban black beans and yucca fries, or the Black and White Sesame Tuna, seared rare and set against with soba noodles, wakame, a soy ginger glaze and wasabi cream. Hardwood floors, dark wood tables and recessed soft lighting give Bluefish a special ambience, while accent walls, table linens, glasses and barstools are as blue as the ocean itself.

North Beach Bistro is more than a restaurant?it's a legacy. The upscale eatery was the vision of renowned chef Tony Pels, who trained with culinary giants such as Wolfgang Puck and Michel Richard, and chef David Seavey, whom Pels mentored for 15 years at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa. Pels passed away only two months before the restaurant's opening in June of 2008, leaving executive chef Seavey to carry on his tradition of culinary creativity and generosity.

Spurred on by this responsibility, Seavey combines the freshest ingredients with a genuine love for his fellow Floridians. The Jacksonville native crafts hearty and flavorful surf 'n' turf entrees such as the bistro bouillabaisse with Mayport shrimp, sea scallops, mussels, calamari, and fresh fish or chargrilled Black Angus ribeye with sauteed mushrooms and port wine sauce. Reddish-gold fixtures in the bar emanate light that's as warm and welcoming as the chef himself. DJs and live music keep the space vibrant, and the dining room's wood floors and spot-lit art give it an air of sophistication. Weekly trivia nights arm guests with knowledge that makes an ideal conversation starter or helps pass the time while stuck in an elevator with Ken Jennings.
