Wow - dessert to die for!

I am not usually a big fan of desserts - sound great and disappoint - well not at 29 South. Coffee Doughnut was fantastic with so many flavours. Good service. Not the cheapest place but the dessert does it for me.

Yummy food I got the LOBSTER mac and cheese. It was scrumptious and enough of a big portion to share with a friend. For desert we had the flour less chocolate mousse. That was amazing. The waitresses were fun and attentive. 5 stars!

This restaurant was very accommodating. We had a limited time frame and they were able to take our order and deliver the food very fast. We were out of there in 30 minutes. The food was fresh and homemade.

Our 1st visit to the historic district and 29 South came highly recommended. My husband and I shared the brine pork chop and the red snapper. Both dishes were delicious very fresh. The environment, staff and food were great. Highly recommend.

I love this restaurant! We are locals and have been here several times. The food is always great no matter what you order. Local farms and farmers are the food supply so you never have to wonder if its fresh. The answer is always, YES. Staff is nice, atmosphere charming. The restaurant is located inside and old house. Porch seating... More

We went here for a romantic dinner. The service was horrible. The food was awful.The shrimp was like eating rubber. The fried chicken was saturated with honey. I will never return.

Fresh, innovative menu choices, ever changing, often unusual. This darling restaurant is in a converted old home, right off the main shopping district downtown. Staff is very well informed & helpful with suggestions. Also has seating on the wrap around porch-great for people watching

6 of us were on vacation on Amelia Island. Found 29 South. Wow! I had the fried green tomatoes, which were fabulous. The grits were great. My dad had a fries green tomato BLT, and was thrilled. Everyone else loved their meals, as well. Beer list was good and local, which is fun. Service was polite and knowledgable. Wish we'd... More

We enjoyed each bite of our 3 course dinner! A cheese board followed by a grilled Caesar salad. We loved the fish tacos as our entrée. Every bite delectable!

Food was good but the chicken I got was raw in the middle. Don't think it is a good value for the money. They were nice about it but should never happen in the first place in a restaurant.
