My wife and I were visiting Amelia Island and wanted an upper scale (but not mega-bucks) place for dinner. Quiet, refined and with great food and a nice selection of wines. We were not disappointed.
The menu was a diverse selection of entrees - shrimp, scallops, salmon, pork tenderloin, steak, duck ... I had the duck. Amazing is the only way to describe it. Cooked perfectly medium rare and served with mushrooms, a ginger soy reduction, garden vegetables and chive whipped potatoes. My wife had the roasted North Atlantic salmon served in a (mild) garlic cream of shallots, Sun-dried tomato and spinach. Also with whipped chive potatoes. Both delicious and cooked to perfection.
I had the duck with Tribute cab (Sonoma). The cab worked with the duck because Sonoma cabs drink more like a gentle Merlot, yet with more complexity. A good Pinot Noir would have also been nice I think. (They had a Ron Rubin Russian River Valley Pinot that looked nice.)
My wife had the King Estate Pinot Gris (Williamette Valley) with her salmon and cream sauce. The choice worked well for her, but I would have chosen a more substantial Chardonnay.
Meals ranged from $20-30 and single glasses of wine from $8.50-$15, although most were about $10.00. So really, the food and drink are most reasonably priced and the quality outstanding.
If I lived in Fernandina Beach, I would go back and try everything. You should also.
