Grilled romaine salad was OK but nothing great. Seemed a bit pricey for what it was. My wife had the Shrimp and Grits which she said was good. The shrimp bisque was incredibly salty, like that was the only thing you could taste-- salt. Note to chef: people like shrimp bisque because they like the flavor of shrimp, not salt.... More

We had fried green tomatoes, chocolate souffle, pork chops and scallop dish. All were wonderful. We will go back here and try something different.

Been to 29 South a couple of times now and have not been disappointed, the fried green tomatoes and the pork chop with Mac n Cheese are very good dishes, the chop has a dark berry sauce that really compliments the dish. Servers are experienced, know the menu and the atmosphere relaxed. The wine list is reasonable priced and has... More

Four of us recently ate here. Last time we took guests and it was great. This time far less so. My wife's request was to have the fish special, normally made with swordfish, made with another white fish. She liked the dish, though the fish was fried. Surely the swordfish wouldn't have been fried, one guest had the popular fried... More

This restaurant in Amelia Island serves up some seriously good eats! They offer up fresh prepared food that makes you want to go back & chow down. Located in a picturesque & historic town, 29 South Eats boasts 'extraordinary casual dining' & we would have to agree! Worth checking out.

Our party of five selected this restaurant for the second year in a row for New Year's eve. We were very pleased once again and will likely return this year. We had a cozy corner seat that was quiet enough for conversation but central enough to get motivated for a fun evening. We had a early seating and happy that... More

This was one of the best meals we had while on vacation. They grow their own vegetables and raise their own meat. We enjoyed an exceptional vegetable/sausage soup, and our seafood entrees and fresh pasta were savory in a delicate way and were perfectly cooked. Can't wait to go back. We enjoyed dining outdoors on their covered porch.

Always high quality, locally sourced cuisine with a very cozy and quaint setting in downtown Fernandina. Small facility so make a reservation!

Had brunch here and it was lovely. Such a relaxed atmosphere that was very homey. I didn't go inside so can't comment on it's atmosphere but we loved being outside. Do not miss the Fried Green Tomatoes! Best anywhere!

Often good to make a reservation plan to spend some time but it is worth it. Most food is local and well prepared Very good short ribs or pork shank
