Ocean 60 Restaurant- Best Atlantic Beach Bars

Boasting of their fresh catches directly off the boats from around the corner at Mayport, it is entirely likely that you will be hard-pressed to find fresher or tastier fish anywhere in Atlantic Beach unless you cast the line and set the hook yourself.

For twenty years Ocean 60 has been providing a wide array of succulent seafood dishes, equally hearty land-based foods, and a martini bar that can’t be beat. The main dining room, the friendly bar, and the casual martini bar all make for excellent locations. Relax at Ocean 60 when you’re looking for a great evening of good food, good drinks, and good times.

Our Thoughts on the Ocean 60 Restaurant

Ocean 60 just north of Atlantic Boulevard and First Street is one of those places that has been a landmark in the neighborhood for years and there is no secret to why. The success of this fabulous restaurant and bar is due directly to their dedication to service and to the absolute perfection they produce from the kitchen. We enjoyed the atmosphere but the food really speaks for itself.

The fresh fish options were plenty, and if you’re not into seafood, the “turn” entrees were hearty and satisfying. The bar service was fast and knowledgeable, and the seating was dispersed enough to still have an “open and airy” feeling wven when at capacity.

If you’re looking for something slightly more intimate and cozy, step inside their martini lounge where the lights are dimmed, the drinks are stiff, and the live music soothes you from the modern world problems, even if just for a little while. Ocean 60 is an Atlantic Beach staple for a reason, it works!

Flying Iguana Taqueria & Tequila Bar – Best Atlantic Beach Bars

Routinely celebrated as serving one of Jacksonville’s finest margaritas, Flying Iguana Taqueria & Tequila Bar is more than a local watering hole, it is a hub of activity and a local meet and greet locale for obvious reason: it has amazing food, out of this world drinks, and a friendly vibe that just permeates the crowd and creates instant friends among strangers.

The Lunch and dinner menus offer a funky blend of Latin food mixed with modern style and the drink menu is several pages long because in addition to the already lengthy offering of various beer, wine, margaritas and specialty cocktails, Flying Iguana features over one hundred different tequilas.

Our Thoughts on the Flying Iguana Taqueria & Tequila Bar

Settling down for a meal at Flying Iguana Taqueria & Tequila Bar was supposed to be a simple and casual dinner, but it turned out to be so much more enjoyable than “just” dinner. Hearty helpings of modern Latin style foods filled out bellies as we took in some locally brewed beers.

Be warned, the seafood paella serves more than just one guest! We received an education in tequila and while that wasn’t our particular drink of choice, we came away with a deeper appreciation and understanding of the spirit. Tequila is so much more than that potent drink we tell “bad stories” about, it can be sweet, tasty, and oh so good.

Mix the evening up with some of the tastiest tacos we’ve had in Jacksonville, and the staff at Flying Iguana hosted us as friends, gave us a great night out, and possibly created a tequila fan where there wasn’t one before.

Coop 303 – Best Atlantic Beach Bars

Reclaimed wood posts, freshly painted brick, and clean and contrasting lines give the outward appearance of Coop 303 a sophisticated look with a down to earth sensibility. The interior is just as alluring and welcoming.

Brunch, lunch and dinner menus loaded with delicately crafted dishes celebrating local food tempt you to come back and eventually try one of everything on the menu, and with two full bars, each deeply stocked with premium bottles, you can enjoy Coop 303 every day or night, indoors or with breezy rooftop dining, and always try something new and refreshing. The food and drink entice you, the friendly staff welcome you.

Our Thoughts on the Coop 303

The Coop 303 menu says it serves up regional Florida foods, but we believe they are selling themselves short with this humble description. The food here is amazing and not what you’d expect from the “local cuisine” moniker. While you may be able to get the food locally anywhere, only in the kitchen at Coop 303 is it prepared in such a way that makes your mouth water and savor each and every bite.

The wine list is well-rounded and they keep some local breweries on tap. The cocktail menu is stocked with the traditional drink fare as well as some new creations that are perfect to try while taking in the sunset on their rooftop garden patio. The warm ocean breeze seems to amplify the already magnificent sense of enjoyment while dining and drinking at Coop 303. We will be back many times and hope to see you there!

The Lemon Bar – Best Atlantic Beach Bars

One block south of Atlantic Boulevard and right on the sand is the unassuming Lemon Bar, right at the public beach access lot at the end of Lemon Street. Don’t let the “plain” appearance fool you, this place has everything you need for a fun and entertaining day at the beach.

Cold drinks, frozen drinks, hot food, live music, and a livelier crowd. The Lemon Bar gets even hotter as the sun goes down with a nightlife scene that outshines the already popular daytime crowds. A locally favored hangout for good reason, the Lemon Bar offers everything you want in your local beach bar.

Top 5 Drinks and Eats at The Lemon Bar

Our Recommended Drinks

While The Lemon Bar has plenty of delicious signature frozen drinks and craft cocktails, our top five personal preferences for drinks are as follows:

  • Recommendation 1: Coladas & Daiquiris – Piña Colada, Strawberry, Mango or Orange with a Kraken Black Spiced Rum Floater or any combination of flavors.
  • Recommendation 2: Lemon Bar Freeze – Our Signature Drink! Stolichnaya Citros Vodka. Vodka and ice cream mix are perfect for a hot day!
  • Recommendation 3: Titty Twister – Two Titmice Vodka with a twist of watermelon, fresh lemon, and a splash of soda. It’s the tits!
  • Recommendation 4: Enter the Dragon – Bacardi Dragonberry Rum, ginger ale, and cherry syrup.
  • Recommendation 5: Jalapeno Pineapple Margarita – Dangerously delicious with a kick of heat and Cenote Blanco Tequila.

Our Recommended Eats

Yes, The Lemon Bar is known for its beautiful surroundings, locale, ambiance, and incredible drink menu. However, for a bar, their food offerings are enough to make a trip to the Lemon Bar into a wonderful meal and drinks opportunity. Our favorite options from their food menu are as follows:

  • Recommendation 1: Boom Boom Shrimp Tacos – Made with Boom sauce, lettuce, & diced tomatoes.
  • Recommendation 2: Grilled Cheese – Fresh, thick-sliced sourdough bread pan-grilled golden with three types of cheese. Choice of fries or coleslaw. Add bacon and tomato for an extra 2.00.
  • Recommendation 3: Calamari – Delicate rings and tails mixed with fried mild banana peppers.
  • Recommendation 4: Mayport Shrimp – 8 Local shrimp grilled, blackened or lightly battered and fried served on a bed of fries. Try them coconut style!
  • Recommendation 5: Chicken Sandwich – Fresh chicken breast served grilled, blackened, or fried with lettuce tomato, and onion. Choice of fries or coleslaw.

Our Thoughts on The Lemon Bar

Appearances can be deceiving and the outward look of the Lemon Bar may leave you looking for more until you step indoors and experience the refreshing wave of reality that washes over you. Many bars out there are trying too hard to dress to impress. They want to attract guests so they gimmick up their space; not The Lemon Bar.

This place feels like your good old-fashioned beach bar because that’s exactly what it is, we’ve only momentarily forgotten how good that can be. The food is good, but nothing more than what you’d expect from a bar. The drinks are cold, there are frozen drinks ready to go, plenty of seating indoors and out, with space for live entertainment to dance the night away.

This leaves us to ask, “What more are we looking for, what more do we want?” and the answer coming back a resounding, “Nothing, this is the spot!”

One Ocean Bar (Azurea Lounge) – Best Atlantic Beach Bars

Step through the elegant blue archways to transport yourself to the ocean atmosphere of Azurea at One Ocean Resort and Spa. The restaurant and bar is open to the public and you won’t have to be a guest of the resort to partake in their finely crafted culinary creations and scrumptious meals.

Being part of the resort and spa complex, the staff are well-versed in taking tremendous care of the guests and catering to your needs. The food is delicious and beautifully presented.

Our Thoughts on the One Ocean Bar

The menus at Azurea rotate through the seasons to accommodate the availability of fresh seafood, so their dedication to fresh food is obvious. When you sit down to brunch at a restaurant attached to a hotel, even a classy resort and spa, you may not expect much but don’t let that fool you.

We were surprised by the options available, from the simple appetites looking for back and eggs, to the more sophisticated palettes wanting the lobster & Brie omelet. Lunch and dinner menus were just as varied and full of selections that were created and cultivated to please any guest.

The bar is a laid back affair well-stocked with cocktails to please. Outdoor seating on the patio is beautiful and definitely where you want to sit, weather permitting. With only a decorative fence separating you from the sand and sea, Azurea at One Ocean resort and spa is relaxation defined whether you are early brunching, sunset dining, or late night sipping.
