"Good food and nice atmosphere."

The Margaritas were very good and so was the food. I had a shrimp chimichanga and there was a very generous amout of shrimp in it.We had excellent service and the prices were fair. I'll be sure to visit Pablo's on my next visit to Fernandina Beach.

why bother, it was loud, just a bar crowd- indoors, the patio was nice out back, but why not walk across the street to the Pelican

We stopped into Pablo's on a Sunday for lunch. Although the food was good, there was no lunch menu. As a result, we had to choose dinner size entrees that were more than we wanted in volume and price. My husband ordered a children's meal, and we still spent nearly $30 without any alcohol. OK for dinnerm, don't bother for... More

Food was good, appetizers served and entrees served before the appetizer was eaten. Such a no no, the waiters fault. Busy place on a overcast February Saturday afternoon for lunch.

Went in for the Taco Tuesday. $3.50-$4.00 each. Had fish tacos and Pastor tacos. The fish tacos normally come with a breading, but upon asking this, Clint said that he could have the fish just grilled. It was very excellent. The freshly made chips are also gluten free. We enjoyed the patio setting in the back.

My husband and I stopped in for drinks and appetizers before our reservations for dinner. We sat and the bar and had amazing margaritas and nachos--the nachos were maxed out with chicken beef beans and chorizo--we highly recommend. The locals are so fun--we even met one of the pirates that shows up for many of the festivals--she was so fun!!!!

The food was pretty good. I loved the guacamole dip. The margaritas were so good, they had plenty of alcohol but still tasted amazing. My favorite was the organic one. The waitress was a little to fast with grabbing things off the table before we were done but I can overlook that the first visit. Overall a nice relaxing atmosphere.

Service was prompt and good. Salsa was a bland as any I have ever had but chips were good. The 2 meals were visually appealing but as bland as the salsa. Worse the food came cold. I don't mean I was expecting hot and out came warm, I mean there was only the slightest hint that everything was above room... More
