We all got the surf and turf meal. The crab legs were great and the steak was cooked to perfection. The coleslaw needs work but it’s edible. Cozy atmosphere and nice staff.

Great seafood and great service. The scallops were cooked perfect. The gator tail was some of the best we have ever had. Would highly recommend Trent's.

Everything was delicious! Service was good and prices were reasonable. The hush puppies, clam strips, grilled salmon on tropical salad, raw oysters and key lime pie were so flavorful! I can’t wait to come back! Perfectly located close to NAS JAX entrance!
