OP Fish House was Built in 2018 by Nathan Stuart and his wife Margo Klar. Nathan comes from a family of fishermen with three generations of seafood retail and wholesale experience. The Stuarts are very active in the fishing community in the Southeast and their passion for fishing is showcased in the best Seafood Jacksonville has to offer. Nathan's grandfather Louis Stuart had one of the first seafood markets in Jacksonville called Intracoastal Fisheries. Nathan's father, Russell Stuart purchased a small restaurant called Seafood Kitchen in 1985, and since the father-son duo have turned Seafood Kitchen into a local staple, hitting top rankings on Trip Advisor, Yelp, Google, and Bold City’s Best!
The vision for OP Fish House began in Nathan’s formative years after a life spent working in Jacksonville restaurants and then managing his father’s restaurant in Atlantic Beach. After getting married in the summer of 2018 to a native Californian with a love, palate, and passion for good food, Nathan and Margo decided to renovate an old house from 1905 and bring seafood to another corner of Jacksonville. The Stuarts still own and operate the Seafood Kitchen where fishermen still boast about their latest catch, and generations of local patrons dine with tourist on local and often owner caught seafood. It is our hope that OP Fish House becomes a local favorite as well. Whether it's a private party, catering, wedding, or just dinner with the family, let OP Fish House take care of you.
