small pleasant oasis

the place has a very pleasant courtyard, it is mostly known for its barbecue but I usually have the seafood sandwich. It is a nice retreat off the street with tourists

My absolute FAVORITE lunch spot in Fernandina. I've had just about everything on the menu and it's all great. My husband's favorite is their pulled turkey barbecue - yummy - huge sandwich - you won't leave hungry!

Great bar-b-que sandwiches. This is where the locals go for lunch. Go one time and you'll know why. Very good food at good prices.

Nestled behind a building off 3rd street, with a few indoor tables and outdoor seating under the trees, Happy Tomato does not skimp on their sandwiches.

Great lunch food served outdoors in a nice courtyard. Good service and tasty food. I enjoyed the chicken salad on salad greens, and my husband said his shrimp salad, also on salad greens was good. It was a little hot, but the servers started a fan for us. The service was good and friendly. Thanks!

Stopped in for lunch and wasn't disappointed...the Chicken Salad and the Shrimp Salad was served on a bed of mixed greens with the dressing on the side. All was very fresh and the service was prompt and friendly. Seating is mostly outside and could be very uncomfortable without the fan. A passing shower cooled things off, but we were seated... More

The sandwiches were huge, you won't leave hungry. I loved the 1/2 and 1/2. My husband had the club sandwich and loved it.

One of my favorite spots to come for lunch when visiting the island. The food is absolutely delicious, and the service is great. Mainly outdoor seating on the patio, which is partially shaded - nice for the warm, summer days. Definitely a must-go-to for lunch. Yum!

Great BBQ, loved it. Quaint location. We sat outside under the trees. Pulled pork was lean and delicious.
