Are there ANY good local restauranst here?

by j_adamtravels

Ok, VTers. I've got a challenge for you. I've lived in New York City and Chicago, I've traveled through Europe, Asia and the US. Everywhere I go, I eventually sniff out great local food. Whether it's satay from the street carts in Bangkok or sweetbreads from Rathbuns in Atlanta, I eat it all. Sadly I have recently found myself in a swirling blackhole of TGI-Mc-Chilis; Jacksonville, Florida, USA. Can someone, ANYONE, please point me in the direction of a decent local restaurant in this town? I don't care if it's five star fine dining or a seafood shack that looks like it's about to tumble into the intercoastal or a backwoods smokehouse pumping out bar-b-qued opossum. Oysters, sushi, carpaccio, fish tacos, burgers? There must be a must-have here. There must. Isn't there one everywhere?

Well, there are 95 tips on VT's Jacksonville Restaurants page--why don't you take a look at it? I just did, and while there seem to be a fair number of duds, there are also a bunch of places that look interesting and good.

I would try also http://chowhound.chow.com/boards/10 and do a search for Jacksonville.

Used be a nice Chart house in Jacksonville. Good food - just a bit odd inside I felt as if the ceiling was a bit low, but my friend did not think so. Food was good.

Traditional baseball in a sophisticated ballpark

The Jacksonville Suns play teams from around the Southeast at home in the new Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. Opened in 2003, the Baseball Grounds features luxury suites, terraces with picnic table seating and a restaurant/bar in addition to traditional stadium seating and concessions. The Suns, like all baseball teams in America, play in the spring and summer.

Great Food and View!!!

This restaraunt is located on St. John's River, at The Jacksonville Landing. Be sure to ask for one of their outside tables -- the view is gorgeous!

Great service! Be sure to ask for Maria! I really liked their Lobster Bisque. It was delicious!

What is the Southbank?

by noidiotsplease

The St. Johns River actually splits Downtown Jacksonville into two halves, the "Northbank" and "Southbank." Both have their own skyscrapers, Riverwalks, restaurants, museums, attractions, hotels and a growing number of luxury condominium towers. Pedestrians have their choice of riding the Skyway, taking a water taxi or walking over the Main Street or Acosta Bridges to get from one side of the river to the other. The Southbank is not as big as the Northbank, which is actually the center of Downtown. The Southbank is, however, known for its selection of waterfront and/or trendy four and five star restaurants including Morton's of Chicago, Ruth's Chris Steak House, River City Brewing Company, the Charthouse, b.b.'s, the Wine Cellar and others. It is also home to the Museum of Science & History, the Jacksonville Maritime Museum and Friendship Fountain. Hilton, Radisson, Hampton Inn and Extended Day Suites all have hotels in the Southbank.
