Had to have reservations for brunch were the only ones in there. The food was undercooked and cold. The employees were very loud. I would never recommend this place to anyone. If you want a wonderful dining experience. I recommend Joe's Bistro. Or anywhere else. A drive thru would beat this place.

This is our second visit to this outstanding restaurant in the charming village of Fernandina Beach. Our waiter, Bob, has an excellent knowledge of their wine list as well as the menu. My wife cannot resist the fried chicken served on mashed potatoes even though she cooks a great version herself. I have tried the shrimp and grits as well... More

Went to 29 South again for our group get together of 10 people. Again it was delicious. The butternut soup was great. The Cobb Salad is excellent and really filling. The service was friendly, timely and our group was happily satisfied. Thanks 29 South!!!

The only downside of finding a great restaurant like this is that we can't visit more often. My wife and I ate lunch at 29 South Eats and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. The shrimp and grits were wonderful with an amazing sauce and the shrimp cooked to perfection. The fried green tomato BLT with a fried egg... More

My wife and I had lunch here yesterday. It's a neat little place 1 block off Center Street. Cool atmosphere with great service but, my request for medium on my Kobe burger was actually well done with some burnt edges. The friendly server did provide a sincere apology, offer to cook again which I declined so she was proactive and... More

Our hosts at a local B&B recommended dinner at the 29th SE, and it was superb. My significant other had the Sheepshead special (a local fish) which was cooked to perfection. I had the shrimp and grits, a meal I've often had in South Carolina, the home of shrimp and grits, and this was by far the best I've had.... More

Just about the most eclectic menu we have encountered in a housewarm setting and a great wine selection as well. Outdoor dining on the front porch is delightful. Fried Green Tomatoes and Simple Crust Bread to start then listen carefully for the daily specials. Swordfish cooked to perfection and to die for Fried Chicken both on Smashed Potatoes. I know--...

Fantastic steak with bacon and fries. So much food, I had a hard time finishing. Price seemed a tad higher than expected; however, for the quality of preparation of the main entree, coupled with the Grilled Romaine with quality Blue Cheese crumbles, I fully enjoyed my Monday dining experience, as it appears many customers did as well as the evening...

We were visiting Fernandina and wanted a local breakfast place. We found this on trip advisor; the restaurant did not disappoint. Cute place, homey, creole flair and good service. The menu items are not typical but each one was very good. The breakfast sandwich and breakfast quesadilla were excellent. The potatoes were hand cut and spiced with Rosemary and garlic;... More

Some friends had heard of this restaurant and the side trip to eat here was well worth it. The restaurant is in an old house, the walls are tiled black / white like an old-fashioned kitchen - it has a very casual atmosphere. The waiters know their stuff: they can talk knowledgeably about the menu and are passionate about the... More
