Attractions in Jax, as the locals call it, range from art, science and history museums to a brewery tour, from the Jacksonville Landing entertainment complex, along the St. John's River, to Bronson Motor Speedway.

The happy hour during the week begins at 4:30pm and ends at 7pm. They offer a very nice meal including a delicious filet, shrimp and veggie as well as a glass of wine, all for only $30!! This is a great deal for anyone looking to enjoy great food at a value price!
This restaurant is not inexpensive, but, the quality of the food is exceptional.

Biscottis

Reviewed By JMCSTL - Saint Louis, Missouri

Based on positive TA reviews, my wife & I had dinner @ Biscottis on a Saturday night after we checked in to our nearby B&B. The Avondale main business district along St. Johns Avenue is packed with bars & restaurants & specialty shops, so the curbside public parking fills up quickly & street spots in the surrounding neighborhoods are just as coveted by visitors and residents. We ended up circling several blocks around the restaurant before finding a parking spot a few blocks west in front of a gift shop that had just closed. The search & subsequent walk was worth it.

Biscottis has some sidewalk seating, but most tables are inside. The interior has high ceilings & minimal wall decorations. Tables & chairs are simple in form & construction, giving the restaurant a modern feel. Waiting for a table to open up can get complicated with the small space available to stand by the entry door, but it does give you an opportunity to check out the fresh desserts in the bakery case up front. After a couple of minutes we were seated near the open kitchen area, and served by Elyse who was attentive & friendly.

My wife ordered a special dinner pasta dish, a pumpkin lasagna that was very unusual but tasty. I had their Mandarin Salad with very large portions of smoked Turkey, mandarin oranges, almonds & red onion, topped with a flavorful raspberry vinaigrette. Neither of us had room left for dessert, but the selections sure did look good & were obviously popular with patrons dining in and carrying out. We were very satisfied with our meals & with the table service, and we'd definitely return to Biscottis if we were ever in Jacksonville again.

The Bearded Pig BBQ

Reviewed By Smokey1611 - Florida

Truly outstanding Pulled Pork, Ribs and Brisket. The consistency, flavor and the dry rub used was superb. My only complaint was that the sauces were mediocre at best. The taste of the BBQ was so good, however, that the dinner was excellent without sauce. The collard greens were excellent as was the mac n' cheese. Once they improve the sauces, The Bearded Pig will be world-class.
