If you have the delight of happening by the Dog Star Tavern as you stroll the streets of historic downtown Fernandina Beach, you will most likely come across a bar tender by the name of Taylor. She has the rare bar tender ability to make you feel welcome. You truly will be a stranger but once when you cross her... More

The Dog Star Tavern is the best bar on Amelia Island. It's always a good time. Joey is one of the best, most talented bartenders on the island, besides that other guy with the really big beard that used to work there. Great live music and just a cool, chill place to hang out.

So I was visiting Fernandina with a friend. A little girls getaway weekend! Locals told us to go downtown to check out the nightlife, so that's what we did. We started at a locals favorite, Dog Star Tavern. The atmosphere was very welcoming. The bartender made it that much more special. Taylor was very polite and made us feel like... More

My wife and I visited the Dog Star Friday night during our stay in Amelia Island. At first we were hesitant about the bar, the band was very loud and it was a younger crowd, but we were pleasantly surprised. Our bartenders, Joey and Sam, were attentive and helpful and picked me out a great craft beer. I tried the... More

I had a nice time there, but at the end of my day and I went to get my tab, imagine my surprise at 29.95 for 3 beers!!! Apparently they were 9.75 apiece? I have NEVER seen such a markup in my life. I get a 6pack at the store for 8.99, 6 beers for less than ONE DRAFT? I... More

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
