Corner Bistro & Wine Bar
My wife and I dined at the Corner Bistro early on Friday night. We were quickly seated and met promptly by our waiter. I ordered a drink, my wife ordered wine and we ordered Calamari at the same time as a starter. The drinks arrived promptly and we were served bread and butter. We chatted for a few minutes and both agreed that the Calamari was a little slow in coming, given we had ordered it at the same time we ordered our drinks, however, that did not diminish the dish. When the Calamari arrived it was hot, the batter crisp and the marinara sauce was superb. The added cherry peppers were a nice spicy touch. I would definitely recommend this for a tasty starter. For entrees my wife ordered Shrimp & Scallops which came with mac & cheese. I ordered the Seafood Pasta. The dishes arrived not too long after we finished our entrée. My wife’s said her order was ‘very good’ and was hot and appetizing. I did not get a taste or the shrimp or scallops, but will certainly take her word for it. I did taste the mac & cheese…it was tasty but had a smoky flavor that I did not care for. The Seafood Pasta that I got was also tasty; however it was not hot, only warm. I would have preferred to be hot. Our waiter was attentive and checked back frequently to make sure we had everything we needed and to see if we wanted an additional drink and again to offer dessert. Overall the dinner was ok, but not great. A little pricey for what you get.

Antman, Carolyn
It is a pleasure for me to recommend Carolyn Antman as oe of the outstanding piano tuners and re-builders of pianos in the Jacksonville area. Carolyn's expertise is not only with piano tuning but with the help of her associate, Vince Jaso, they were able to re-string an up-right Knabe piano from the 1880's at what I considered to be a very reasonable price. Carolyb is a "Master of Tuning" when she accurately tuned my 1839 Knabe Concert Square Grand piano that came from a Historic home in Richmond, Virginia. I am very impressed with their knowledge and ethics of workmanship when working on my pianos. She and Vince are truly an asset to the Jacksonville community! Let me end by saying it is very reassuring to have licensed and insured individuals like Carolyn and Vince working on my pianos for the past 4 years. I have confidence that I will continue to have only the best workmanship o my pianos possible by using Carolyn and Vince.

Antman, Carolyn
Carolyn is terrific. always on time, and meticulous in her work. She's so awesome that I selected her to rebuild my 7 foot grand that I literally wore out from playing! She did a masterful job and treated my piano like the prized possession that it is to me. I have referred her to friends and received many thanks from them for the referral. She is top notch, and I would recommend her without reservation (and I'm not so easy to please!)...

Metro Diner
Metro has a great vibe while still maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere. ALWAYS, ALWAYS super-packed, so be prepared to wait a bit, but definitely worth it. The portions are HUGE....I've never been able to clear my plate :) You won't find "Denny's Bargain-pricing" here, but again, you'll most likely end up with a Doggie-bag. Order the Breakfast Pie (it's not a slice, but a WHOLE pie). It's bigger than your face, but so tasty!

Applebee's
The service was not bad but DON'T go during your lunch hour. You will wait forever to get your food and have 5 minutes to eat it. I called ahead and placed my order a half hour in advance. Then when I get there the bartender says "Oh sorry we are not allowed to do that." Really?! So we talk to the manager who said she was going to take care of us and she took like $3 off my bill. Hmmmmmm. I'll go somewhere else from now on.

Antman, Carolyn
I have been using Carolyn's services for over 9 years and can say unreservedly that she is the best! Very professional, always on time, keeps excellent records of what she's done each time and calls me to remind me when it's time for the yearly tuning (so I don't have to remember). She's also very personable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for quality and excellent service!

I had an awesome experience here. I went in on Sunday morning when the store first opened. After the sales associate asked if I was shopping for wife , GF , ext.. And I said no for myself it was great. She helped my pick out pieces that I liked , I tried things on and she maid suggestions about fit and size. During the whole time she chatted about normal everyday things, I loved it!

Shut Em Down Authentic Southern Restaurant
Stopped in for lunch today with my daughter I had ox tails and she had fried chicken they were both delicious and plenty of food for a good price. Friendly and attentive staff. Must try in Argyle Orange Park. I will definitely go back beats the fast food in the area at a competitive price. You'll be looking in the back to see if your Mom herself is back there cooking.

BlackFinn American Grille
Great food, especially at lunch. Wait staff are very friendly and competent. AS FAR as drink prices. .. It is not a place to go and drink beer and shots. It is a very good wine bar.The only complaint is the hosting folks. They border on thinking they are better than the customers. Not very welcoming but once one gets past the attitude life is good.

Just a moment...
