Looking for a unique Jacksonville experience to be served with your meal? Here's seven local eateries worth considering.
3. Clark's Fish Camp
Clark’s Fish Camp began as a bait and tackle shop at the foot of Hood Landing Road over 30 years ago. They expanded to a seafood restaurant, and have been serving up local favorites ever since.
Clark’s Fish Camp is casual, but certainly unique, dining experience. Located along Julington Creek, they offer one of the largest menus in the area, with an entire page dedicated to appetizers alone. Their giant menu includes things like a seafood bake, prime rib-stuffed mushrooms, shrimp and grits, stuffed fish, pastas and steaks, quail, frog legs, and a prime rib philly.
Not only do they have a large menu, but the restaurant also includes what rumored to be one of the largest privately owned taxidermy collections in the country. Clark's preserved animals includes lions, tigers, monkeys, bears, giraffes, deer, bobcats, and a flock of birds gazing at guests. If this isn't unique enough, there's a live alligator exhibit as well!
