Cute little Southern beach town seafood spot. Everything was going fine, good food, good service. Until a 'well heeled' family arrived about half way through our meal. It was only a couple with their two small children and what appeared to be a nanny, so you wouldn't think that should disrupt their entire operation. They were seated privately, in another... More

We ate at this restaurant twice. The first night we had a seafood platter for two. Very large portions. The second night we had chopped steak dish with onions. Both meals were delicious.

Not gourmet, not a great view, but old fashioned comfort food. We had fried shrimp which were fresh and well cooked, not greasy, but French fries were. Reasonably priced and relaxed.

I think this is the longest operating restaurant in Fernandina Beach, and they know what they are doing when it comes to Southern Fried Seafood. Yes, they can prepare your seafood several different ways(baked; broiled; and fried) and all the seafood was probably caught that day.The wait staff is great and the service comes with southern hospitality.

I visit Amelia once or twice a year, and the Marina is always a must stop for their fried shrimp, baked potato, cole slaw and hush puppies. I've never been disappointed, it's always been tasty. The atmosphere is small town beachy,, which I love. Highly recommend.

but apparently it had been long enough that we forgot our first experience or it used to be good... The service was good and all staff were pleasant. The fried chicken was excellent and our server was sure to let us know it would take a little longer because it was cooked to order. My husband's fried oysters and hush... More

This restaurant was suggested by 2 in town who said it was where the locals ate "but I'm not sure why!" I enjoyed the atmosphere & sweet tea but the deal of the day "grouper & a shrimp basket " were certainly not worth the price. My husband got a couple little grouper sticks that tasted mushy & like lysol.... More

We ate dinner there for a family of 5. Everyone loved their food. We had combination platters that were either fried or broiled. Both were excellent and reasonably priced. Not stuffy. Great walking area after dinner.

Local spot, one of the oldest in town that serves great, fresh seafood and low country favorites. Speciality salads and fried chicken sandwiches great! Service was efficient and friendly. Booths a little tight but enjoyed all the St. Paddy Day decorations.

Food was very average. Nothing note worthy to say. Just a restaurant to go to if you can't get in anywhere else.
