We had a fabulous time, our waitress Laura was super, especially loved the crab cakes and fresh hummus. Fish was very fresh. Laura treated us like family and couldn't have been more attentive. The only downer was it was a rainy night so we were inside stuck next to a screaming (seriously screaming-like needed to be taken outside) kid who... More

I don't normally go out to eat alone but walking into Kelley's courtyard I was welcomed with a smile, and never felt alone throughout lunch! Everyone was small town friendly and so fun. My shrimp po boy was so good I want another!! My next visit can't be soon enough! Great place

I live at Fernandina Beach and eat out frequently. Kelley's Courtyard is one of my favorite local restaurants. The food is good and, the service is very friendly. One of the things I like most about the restaurant is the seasoning seems to always be perfect and the vegetables are always fresh. Staff mention the specials of the day and... More

So excited to find out that this little downtown gem serves locally caught shrimp & fish. It was well prepared by their talented Chef Mike. We loved our Shrimp Po' Boy & Mahi Sandwich. The side of Black Beans & Rice were the best I've ever had! Will definitely be visiting this resturant again.

We enjoyed the Chef's special Strawberry Barbecue Glazed Yellowfin Tuna with Apple-cucumber Slaw. It was out of this world. This young chef is talented and has a staff to write home about. I will recommend this spot to anyone and everyone that will listen. We plan on having several meals there while visiting Amelia Island.

Spent the afternoon in Fernandina, and consulted Tripadvisor about restaurants. Kelley's Courtyard was in the top ten so we popped in for lunch. Kelley's has an intimate little courtyard off the street, and some inside seating in case of inclement weather. The menu was lite with a variety of choices and our selections were well prepared and tasty. We would... More

My wife and I went there for lunch today, largely based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Maitre'd and server were pleasant and attentive. My wife ordered a shrimp "personal" pizza, and I ordered the lunch special, a "chicken cordon bleu" wrap. Also had the 'she crab' soup, served promptly and ok, not outstanding. Finally, after waiting over 30 minutes, and... More

We ate at Kelley's last night and I was blown away by the incredible scallops, service and atmosphere! Our table was not ready yet but the staff actually put two tables together to seat us sooner. They could not have been friendlier and were only topped by their chef's generosity and incredible food. Great experience!

Had Quiche Lorraine here for lunch which was so light and yummy! A side salad, delicious, came with it. The ice tea was fresh. The menu offers a lot of lunch items. Our waiter was great and the entire staff were very friendly. Would definitely recommend!
