With thousands of miles of ocean beaches and an even larger amount of river and lake shoreline, Florida has more than its fair share of waterfront restaurants.

Here are a few that we enjoy.  Just click on the photos for more info.

Clark's Fish Camp, Jacksonville

This restaurant in Mandarin is on Julington Creek just off the St. Johns River.  The atmosphere is one of the attractions here, with what is reported to be the world's largest collection of private taxidermy. Click on photo for more.

Hidden Treasure, Ponce Inlet

This gem is a hidden treasure with outside dining and a tiki bar in the shadow of the historic Ponce Inlet Lighthouse.  It overlooks Ponce Inlet and is a great place to refresh and recharge after walking to the top of the lighthouse and soaking in the magnificent view. Click on photo for more.

Singleton's Seafood Shack, Mayport

Mayport is a fishing village near the mouth of the St. Johns River east of Jacksonville.  Singleton's is a traditional Old Florida establishment featured not long ago on Guy Fieri's television show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  Click on photo for more.

Snack Jack, Flagler Beach

The formal name of the Old Florida oceanfront diner is High Tides at Snack Jack.  It is directly on the ocean just south of Flagler Beach.  Every table and booth has an oceanfront view and the food is great.  This is informal beachside dining at its best. Click on photo for more.
