Second time and was not disappointed. Food was as good as the first time. Unique food and atmosphere do an enjoyable evening. Shrimp and Grits and the Fried Chicken with Honey are two of my favorites.

Our family of 4 visited while vacationing on Amelia Island. We had visited previously 2 years ago and annually before that. I am glad to say it is still great. Highlights included the grilled romain salad, the pork chop entree (savored by2 of the 4), the scallop dinner& a steak special. The service is good. The food consistently excellent. And... More

The homegrown herbs and veggies (grown in their garden out back) and other locally sourced ingredients, coupled with gourment recipes, results in some of the best food you'll find in the area (and beyond!). Amelia Island has some of the best shrimp & grits you'll find anywhere, and THE best are found at 29 South.

After eating out every night for a week, my family decided that 29 South Eats was our most delicious meal. We had a table on the porch, so we were able to experience the cool breeze, soft singing from a bar down the street, pedestrians enjoying the night, a lighted horse drawn carriage making its way down the street, and...

My mother and I visited Amelia Island for 4 nights. Two of the nights, we ate here! Totally worth visiting. The Jar of Polenta is incredible...so is the Shrimp and Grits. If we lived here, we'd eat at this restaurant all the time. AND...the servers are so nice! Great place for families and romantic dinners as well. Be sure to... More

Very nice meal sitting on the porch on a warm summer evening. The people watching was entertaining and the service and the food were excellent. We started with the pickled shrimp and fried green tomatoes, moved to a special of haddock and cooked to order salmon along with spring rolls. We finished with a totally decadent chocolate concoction and some... More

When it comes to food, this was the best meal I had on Amelia Island. It was delicious southern fare. We had the southern cobb salad which was a combination of southern favorites like deviled eggs, cornbread and fried green tomatoes. The fried chicken and mac and cheese were also excellent. The mac and cheese was the best I've ever... More
