Right in the middle of downtown Amelia Island, Dog Star is close to everything cool Amelia has to offer. Giant Jenga game when you first walk in and a cool Old Florida feel set this bar apart. Open floor plan is great for music and bigger crowds, and they feature everything from crunchy Reggae to authentic Rockabilly. Bartenders are awesome... More

Amelia Island is one of my husband and my favorites vacation spots. This year we stumbled upon Dog Star before dinner one night and were not disappointed! Nice selection of drinks, and Joey our bartender was very welcoming! A few nights later we decided to go back and enjoyed some live music. Joey was the bartender again and remembered us.... More

It has a nice open floor area, giant jenga, and a rotating selection of beer choices that will satisfy a wide range of tastes. Robert Warner is particularly knowledgeable about the different beers on tap, and is great for recommendations if you're not quite sure what you want.

When I'm back in Fernandina, I always end up at Dog Star to catch up with people and have a few drinks. They make a point to have fun bands and create an atmosphere that isn't snooty or stuck up. If you're a jerk or a headcase, don't go to Dog Star. It's only for people that are looking for... More

Love going to Dog Star Tavern. The beer is ice cold and the staff is well worth the visit. Bartenders Robert Warner and Tim Lee serve great drinks and will keep you laughing. This is truly one of our favorite places on the island.

I love Dog Star's location! It's hidden on N. 2nd St. away from the hustle and bustle of the "main drag" in downtown Fernandina. Robert the bartender was quick to welcome us and take our orders. His relaxed attitude made us feel like we were old friends. Also the service was spot-on and my beer glass was never empty! My... More
