Great spot for brunch. Food is good, especially Chicken & Waffles! They also offer bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Marys. It does get a little loud, and busy so be prepared. But there is a nice porch area on the back if you need to wait. Very nice place!

We had been told by our trolley driver Reggie that this was the best fried chicken in the area. We loved the quaint charm of the historic property and that it had a casual dining outdoor section, so decided to check it out. My husband had the fried chicken sandwich and I had a lovely salad with fried chicken added.... More

Couldn't post again for three months on other Florida Inn, so I am adding to my previous post here. I should have waited until our weekend here was over before giving my thoughts about this place. After our Daughters wedding, we got back here at 11pm Saturday evening and had no where to park.. People from the green turtle took... More

Quaint place to stay in Amelia Island, FL that is right in the heart of everything! Everyone working there was fantastic and most accomodating! Great live music next door too while you sit on a scenic patio! Don't forget to try the "Mermaid Slap" when you're there! It's a speciality of the bartender and a local favorite!!

This place was conveniently located in Historic downtown, close to the marina, shops, restaurants, and entertainment. Rooms were great, nice, clean. Overall place was relaxing. Good patio, decks, and common rooms with a bar. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was always amazing.

I am a born and raised local and I just love to see how the new owners have transformed the Florida House into a great neighborhood spot with delicious food and awesome drink specials! We enjoy this restaurant for Sunday brunch as often as our calender allows and actually held several special occasion events here in the last year with... More

This is a beautiful historical house with a quaint sitting room, great lobby bar and the most amazing breakfast. We felt at home and the staff went above and beyond.

Let me start off by saying, it's a nice building, close to all of the shops, and a nice breakfast. That being said, unless you want "self service" and enjoy the bar band, think about other lodging. Before we left on our trip, we sent 4 emails and made 4 phone calls to inquire about our room and a change,... More
