Enjoyed a meal out here one night with my husband and a friend. It is best to go on a weekday as there is not generally a wait. On the weekends it seems to get quite crowded. My husband has the special steak, which was a super thick cut and looked amazing. I had the shrimp and grits, which to... More

Let me first say that I respect the farm to table concept and dine often at restaurants like this one. Unfortunately that is where it stops for us on this restaurant. We wanted to try their signature dishes so we started with the lobster corndog. This tasted more like bland cornbread. It was devoid of any lobster flavor. It arrives... More

Loved the tapas sized plates. Fried green tomatoes and salad with the corn dog lobster was just the right amount of really good food. Loved the champagne honey salad dressing.

I discovered this place about a year ago and make a point of eating there often. Simply put, I drive 40 miles to eat there. Keep up the great work Scotty and Brett!

Went here for lunch when visiting beautiful Amelia Island.The restaurants is situated right in the historic downtown, right across from the historic old Florida Inn. Most folks sit outside on the porch in good weather , as we did. among several good offerings, we enjoyed a nice salad garnished with smoked trout. But the real hit were the green tomatoes,... More

This cute little casual place was a wonderful surprise. Food was excellent, service also wonderful. I love a good pino Grigio and they offered one that was so good, I took a picture of the bottle on my phone so I would not forget the name and when we returned home our local wine shop ordered it for us. Please... More
