Lovely dinner, spectacular food! Stephany is the greatest server on the planet. Give me the choice if I want the remarkable Filet sitting on top of Mash potatoes or besides it. Filet sinks into mash as you try to cut it!

Food was very good, however we waited more than one and half hours to get our main course. The service certainly diminished an otherwise nice restaurant.

I attended a wedding dinner here. My prime rib was excellent and I heard nothing but good comments from the 20 or so guests in our party. Those who had the shrimp and grits essentially said they were the best they have ever had.

We recently hosted a family reunion on Amelia Island and booked the private room upstairs for one of our dinners. The room was PERFECT with a lovely light blue painted ceiling, chic lighting fixtures and a spacious balcony for our cocktail hour (the photos don't do this space justice). It also had 2 private restrooms upstairs which was very convenient.... More

The location was fantastic. The ambiance was perfect. Wait staff attentive and the food was awesome. We went for lunch but would have been great for dinner as well. Everything was fresh including the homemade focaccia bread.

Best shrimp and grits ever! All of the food was delicious. Nice atmosphere and wonderful service. Kudos to our waitress who let us know about the fire flies on Fort George.
