About Us

Southern Table Hospitality’s popular dining establishments continue to beckon both locals and visitors to enjoy the bounty of the Florida coast. Offering a variety of concepts, from homemade Southern BBQ to fresh, delectable seafood, owners Ben and Liza Groshell “aim to be your go-to destination for enjoying Southern fare.” Best of all, the company is passionate about locally-sourced meats, fish, fruits and vegetables across all restaurant locations, so you can feel good about supporting purveyors from the Sunshine State.

In the mood for seafood entrees, starters with a Southern twist and cocktails with names like the “Stay-Cation” or “Beachside Mule?” The beloved Fish Camp restaurants offer a number of locations and “outstandingly fresh Florida seafood prepared with Southern soul and style.” St. Augustine Fish Camp, the newest addition, promises to be well worth your next visit, offering a spacious interior and outdoor patio seating. The original Palm Valley Fish Camp, open since 2009, has remained a staple in the Ponte Vedra community, while North Beach Fish Camp and Julington Creek Fish Camp have become community gathering places as well. All of the Fish Camp locations are ideal for enjoying food and cocktails with family and friends, while soaking in the beauty of Florida. 

Planning a special night out? Don’t miss Southern Table’s original fine dining establishment, Marker 32, located in the heart of Jacksonville’s beaches. Offering a tantalizing menu of fresh oysters and other appetizers, juicy steaks and chops, expertly prepared seafood and indulgent, scratch-made desserts, Marker 32 is the perfect place for your next celebration. For something more laid-back, try Dockside Seafood, located in Jacksonville Beach: a fast-casual setting overlooking the boat ramp and featuring spectacular maritime views of the Beach Boulevard Bridge and local waterways. 

And if you’re craving mouthwatering Southern BBQ around Ponte Vedra Beach, visit Valley Smoke Restaurant for lunch, dinner, brunch or happy hour. With pit-cooked BBQ, wood-fired steaks, Southern sides and much more, you’ll leave feeling full and happy — and so will family and friends. 

“We’re extremely proud of the culture of our business,” Ben Groshell remarks. “We create environments where our guests feel welcome, and we consistently offer superior food and beverages. Our hands-on approach to hospitality fosters long-term customer loyalty to all our brands. Hospitality, integrity, professionalism, dedication, discipline and innovation are the core values we stand by.”
