If you're after fish and chips, look no further than this new business. Called Jax Fish Fry, the newcomer is located at 8380 Baymeadows Road in Swamp.

Owners Dori Blockberger-Alexanian and Roger Alexanian, who grew up on a good fish fry in Upstate New York, decided to bring that experience to  South Florida, notes the Jacksonville Business Journal.

Located in an 1,850-square-foot space that was previously a Pita Pit, the fast-casual spot offers lobster roll sandwiches, crab cakes with remoulade sauce on potato buns and fried cod baskets. Finish off your meal with a dessert like the homemade chocolate or lemon bundt cakes.

Jax Fish Fry has already attracted fans thus far, with a 4.5-star rating out of 34 reviews on Yelp.

Rey C., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Feb. 1, shared, "I ordered a cod roll, shrimp roll and a side order of onIon rings.  We shared the three rolls, and Gail enjoyed hers so much so that, after we were done, we ordered another lobster roll to-go. Great hospitality and service!"

Yelper Edward A. wrote, "Tried the clams today and found out I could add a piece of fish to any basket for $5 #SCORE. Clams were good, and the cod fish was crisp, flavorful, flaky and well executed. The fries I liked a lot—they were like a cross between home cut and thin sliced chips."

Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Jax Fish Fry is open from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. on Monday-Saturday. (It's closed on Sunday.)
