This is the other south side quaint restaurant for a nice evening of dining. The food is always great, and Tim and the crew are spot on. They cater to a more seafood palate, however, their Pecan chicken dish is awesome. We just need them to add some type of cheesecake for the dessert menu. The key lime pie is... More

My girlfriend and I come here once or twice a month. Every time we come we say we should come more often! We always start off with a scallop or oyster appetizer and my girlfriend always has any special that night that has risotto. Personally I always ask Betsy to bring me a random dish and haven't had a bad... More

Great flavor and ambiance, helpful and efficient but not cloying service. Serving size definitely adequate but not oversize, so room for small starter and shared dessert.

But, it was WONDERFUL! We went for lunch. The place is actually quite large, and we were seated in a corner seat just as you entered the restaurant. Staff was helpful and very friendly. We noted that there were many repeat customers who were known by the staff. We had wine, naturally. Nice selection of bottles and by-the-glass. I had... More

This is a very comfortable and casual restaurant on Amelia Island, FL with delicious food. Plenty of parking in front of the restaurant with handicapped access and family friendly. It is casual and the food is elegant. Looks like a small venue when you first walk in, but back to the right huge sitting areas, and great for parties or... More

Hard to beat this place for creative, well prepared menu offerings. A great place for lunch or dinner for one, two or for entertaining. The owner/manager clearly has the right formula offering both local favorites and fine dining entrees rivaling top restaurants in NYC or other major cities.

Had a wonderful meal and a bottle of Cabernet; met some new friends and just enjoyed the relaxed, hospitable atmosphere where one is always on Island Time! Cannot over-emphasize how awesome the specials are!! This night (12/15/17) there were 4 specials and we ordered Truffled Scallops...FANTASTIC! Highly recommend either the Blue Crab Fondue or the Steamed Mussels. Great wine list... More

Third time in as many months. From Taylor's greeting to our superb waitress Betsy this visit did not disappoint yet again. Plump Mussels in coconut cooked to perfection.

Always enjoy BarZin for dinner or just drinks. There is a great variety of food from good burgers to seafood specialties and salads. There is no continuous food service though, they stop serving around 2pm and start again at 530 even on Saturday. The bar is open continuously for drinks. A nice place on the south end of the island... More

Sx of us had a fine dining experience here. The food was enjoyed by all. It is a little pricey, but if you want an upscale dining experience, this is a good choice!
