Favorite Restaurants
These are some of my favorite restaurants. My wife and I eat out more often than we should, so this list is quite extensive.
Best sushi in town and one of my personal favorites. My wife and I eat here regularly. The prices are very reasonable. All meals come with soup and salad. The hibachi is reasonably priced and very good. Personal recommendations: Appetizer - Krab Rangoon Side Order - Chicken Fried Rice (enough for a meal by itself)
Crazy Sushi

Good American food with a lot of TV's located throughout the restaurant. This location can get a fairly lively crowd depending on the day of the week. The outside patio is an excellent place to watch live sporting events. Two great bars: one inside and one on the patio.

An Irish Pub which originally started out at Jacksonville Beach and has recently opened a restaurant in this area of town. I have never had something that I didn't enjoy here.

This is an upscale steak restaurant with prices to match, however, the steaks are amazing.

My favorite Mexican restauant in town. A little further north on Southside than the rest of the restaurants on this list, but worth the drive. Appears to be a little divey from the outside, but the food is excellent, the prices fairly inexpensive, and the margaritas....

Five Guys

Pizzas, sandwiches, and salads. This is a local restaurant that has now been franchised in North Carolina as well. More upscale than a fast food restaurant, but yet still casual dining.

Tex-Mex with flair. Excellent margaritas with seasonal flavors. The restaurant boasts a free "Nacho Car". It is literally the back end of a car with the trunck turned into a nacho bar. The nacho bar is free during happy hour. This includes chips, taco meat, refried beans, salsa, and cheese dip.

My mother's favorite restaurant in Jacksonville. When she visits town this is a must-do at least once, and usually a lot more. This is probably the best seafood in town. The original location was on the shrimp boat dock in Mayport on the north side of town. This location has the same great fresh local shrimp. My recommendation: Pick Two basket with fried and blackened shrimp.

The closest movie theater. This isn't your '80's movie theater. Plush reclining seats and state of the art sound are highlights of this theater. The theater serves beer and wine in addition to the normal theater fare. Most of the screens have reserved seating.
