So after eating all that at The Blind Rabbit, we ended up at the Salt Life Food Shack that was just down the street. We could have walked there; however, Jacksonville Beach is can be a bit chilly in February. At least chilly and windy enough that the short drive would be best.
This was another recommendation and it was fantastic. I’ll be honest, when I thought I was going to a “shack” at the beach, I literally though it would be a shack. However, to my surprise Salt Life Food Shack is no shack whatsoever. The outdoor patio would have been a prime spot to eat had it not been cold. There’s a larger than life aquarium on the inside with some exotic looking fishes.
I was bordering on a food coma at this point, but I had to try something. I opted for the quintessential fish taco. It was beautifully crispy as I would expect from any beachside establishment. I had some of the clam chowder that my MIL ordered. Creamy and had a good overall flavor. A good amount of clam as well in the few bites I had. Also tried the fried calamari that my GMIL had and it was crispy. I really liked the sauce as it was different from a traditional cocktail sauce.
I will definitely have to come back on a completely empty stomach so I can try other items off the menu.
