As we make our way closer to shore, Marker 32, last year’s OpenTable Dining Choice award winner, awaits quaintly nestled on the visually stunning Intracoastal Waterway. Despite the astute recognition, the family-owned-and-operated restaurant is considered locally to be ”Jacksonville’s best-kept secret since 1992,” serving up fresh local seafood to year-round patrons for the past decade and a half. The second-floor dining room doubles as an observation deck—bringing amazing sunset views above the glistening marina waters to life—and is prime for private functions of 25 or more people.
Sticking with sensational seafood as a River City staple (and the same duo who brought you Marker 32), The Fish Camps offer some of northern Florida’s most prized pescatarian platters. With waterside locations in Ponte Vedra and Neptune Beach, the newest location on the banks of Julington Creek blends a casual vibe with a sociable setting. The outdoor patio showcases mesmerizing marina sunsets complementing the camp’s Southern fare worthy of northern Florida’s finest.
