“Wonderful food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

The service was great and loved the outside seating area. I wanted grilled shrimp and they accommodated and tweaked the menu to give me what I really desired. The service was superb and cost not exceeding one's budget.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Had dinner outside with friends. We had all been on a tour earlier and had learned about the local shrimp. All of us ordered dishes with local shrimp. Shrimp Mac and Cheese and Shrimp Diane. They were excellent and you could tell the difference in the shrimp. Service was above and beyond. Totally enjoyed!

“Quaint excellent meal in Fernandina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

This is a cute little hidden place. They have outdoor seating but we chose inside due to a windy night. I had Mac and cheese with shrimp, which was excellent. My husband had the pork chops, he as well thought it was excellent. We had the calamari for an appetizer, so good with a nice sauce. Our service was friendly and attentive. We really enjoyed this little place and will be back.

“The Ritz Without The Glitz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Went here for lunch today and it lived up to its billing. Very simple place with a choice of inside or outside, either in sun or shade under a tin roof. That is where we sat and would love to eat there under a soft rain. A nice New Zealand sauvignon blanc started things off nicely along with an appetizer of fried oysters with a marvellous horseradish sauce. My wife had a lovely Nicoise salad with a very unusual ingredient- watermelon radish. I had a blackened grouper sandwhich served sub-style. Very good. BUT, while we don't normally do dessert, and certainly not for lunch, today was an exception and we were very glad we did. Banofi pie for me and Krispy Creme bread pudding for my wife but we did share Truly outstanding! A memorable lunch in simple surroundings.
