We loved this place! Made the reservation based on the recommendation of a close "foodie" friend. Did I say we loved it?!? Started with fish and corn chowder and grilled romaine salad. Both excellent. I especially loved the salad. Followed by red snapper with beet purée and winter vegetables for my husband and I had the fried shrimp and grits.... More

Delightful little place with wonderful staff. Best meal we had on the island. They have a little garden out back, too.

This was one of the highlights to our first visit to Amelia Island. Farm to table cuisine. We had the Catch of the Day special and the grass fed beef sirloin. Ended with the chocolate soufflé. Wonderful! Highly recommended!

These days I love to know where my food comes from and I want my server to be excited and proud to share all of the details. This restaurant came as quite a surprise from the typical restaurants on the island and fit the bill as aforementioned. The owners and staff really care to provide a great overall experience, service,... More

Excellent service, creative menu and flavor profiles. All the items we ate were delicious, from goat cheese stuffed fried green tomatoes with red pepper jam to smokey pulled pork spring rolls with tangy slaw. Too many exceptional and creative menu choices to choose from and experience in one visit.

Charming southern/small town restaurant in a beach town. Came here the day after an out of town wedding, and it turned out to be a great find. Place was very charming, staff was extremely friendly, eggs benedict was AMAZING. I will definitely come back to try out their lunch/dinner next time i'm in town.

I think the combinations and ingredients were wonderful and so did my husband. Setting inside and out is rather small and the outdoor chairs are flat out uncomfortable. love the food, but wish for a chair pad

The farm to table concept is great but to be honest, I was disappointed. The catch of the day was nice but not outstanding. The price for one appetizer and an entree (no alcohol, sides, or dessert) was after tax and tip was nearly $50. I've had better for less.

Met up with my college friends at this charming farm to table bistro. The service was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was relaxed and elegant. The shrimp and grits was delicious with fresh, fried shrimp and grits that were moist and flavorful. The andouille sausage in this dish is extraordinary.My husband had the crab and... More

This restaurant was suggested to us and did not disappoint. I ordered the shrimp and grits that were amazingly flavorful. My husband ordered the fish specialty of the night and vey much liked it but said it was slightly salty. This restaurant prides itself on everything being fresh as they actually have a garden out back for use with all... More
