This is an attractive restaurant in the charming shopping center of the Omni Resort. I found the food to be very good, but not one of my favorites. I had the Caprese Salad which I enjoyed, and the Lamb T Bone, which was served too rare for me. I would have returned it, but it was served with a sauce... More

It's ok, certainly not as good as the staff thinks it is. Not bad, but not a spot I'll go back to. Interior is dark and dated, small crowd even on Labor Day weekend Menu is a strange mix, no theme per say

After getting the kids to bed and with grandparents willing to sit with them, my wife and I headed out to a late dinner. The historic district of Fernandina Beach has a number of great local restaurants, but with time limited, we decided to stick close to our condo at the Amelia Island Plantation and go to PLAE (People Laughing...

Had a pleasant dinner here on a Saturday night. Atmosphere was nice, service was good, and the live music (jazz piano) was pleasant. Food was ok but not great. Overl average but not outstanding

Tired from the moment we walked up. It's August and they still have dead poinsettias pots in front. Also walk up to an old fake pond (looks like a putt-putt pond). walked into an overpowering odor. I still can't put my finger on it...old fryer oil maybe. Let me sum this up by saying...took 20 minutes to bring us a... More

My adult daughter and I ate dinner here twice during our stay. We had salmon, shrimp, duck, and also truffle fries. All were yummy. They seated a large group of us without reservations one night, which was really great.

Came for some small plates. $20 for two burnt scallops and raw bacon. Fried calamari rings, no tentacles, with sweet chili sauce out of a jar. Not what I was expecting for these prices. My wife liked the shrimp pasta.

This was our third time at PLAE. The menu has changed a bit, but the essence remains. Fun starters and small plates, wonderful salads, and a wide variety of entrees. The minor nits: they eliminated most of the "jar" foods, including the wonderful fish spread, and the complimentary "bread" (allegedly an Italian recipe) underwhelmed. Now the good. The space is...
