It's an upbeat atmosphere with good service, but a little too loud for anyone over 30! parking can be a problem.

Conch Chowder is excellent. Fried Avocado exceed al expectations! Blackened Grouper sandwich is excellent. Heck, everything is excellent. Only disappointment, their original Key Line Square went away some time ago.

Salt Life Food shack is a definite stop when visiting Jacksonville Beach. The atmosphere is just as good as the food. They have something for everyone. My wife is not a seafood eater, but she loves the wide selection of sandwiches.
