I had not been to Genes in years. Well, it's still serving the Jax community VERY good Fried and Grilled foods! Last night I got the seafood combo ($17)- large fish fillet, shrimp, scallops, clam strips, stuffed crab, fries and baked potato- all were good (and the shrimp was obviously fresh- came out of the tail perfectly!). However, what I... More

We hadn't been to Gene's for quite a while and I wanted to see if they were still as great as they had been in the past. They did not disappoint service was fast, courteous, accurate. We had the fried pickle chips that were huge thick chips served with ranch dressing. They were superb. My friend had the shrimp and... More

This Gene's is a storefront in a strip mall on a busy blvd. It was small, cozy and comfortable inside, and the female server was friendly throughout our meal. The food arrived within a reasonable amount of time, and the servings were adequate/large. Food was hot and tasty. We had asked to move from the table where we were seated,... More

This is not a high end seafood place but it's affordable and the quantities are large. Our server was pleasant but the service and food delivery was slow for a work lunch. I ordered broiled mahi tacos. The fish chunks were fresh and decently flavored. It was served in two huge tortillas with lettuce, tomato and a load of cheddar... More

I expect something a little more from a seafood restaurant in Florida. The food was bad. The service was slow and not very good. Old and rough looking inside. Very disappointed.

I live very close by in san marco and used to eat here often. Unfortunately, I visited for the last time tonight with my family. The place is so worn looking, service is slow, food is decent but just not a good overall value. The kicker is the customer service, its not very good. Servers have a great attitude but... More

Just wanted to go out and have dinner, a seafood dinner. We must have picked the wrong night, the wait was long and the seafood wasn't all that great. Seafood for one, fish, scallops, clam strips, fries. Not worth the wait, but they had a nice band there to make up for the not so good food.

We tried this place ONLY because of a Groupon and the review ratings were 3.9, which right below my standard of at least 4.0 for me to try them out. One of the guest at my table ordered Salmon, which was very bad...actually, unservable. When we told the waitress the Salmon was bad and it need to be removed, she... More
