Delicious farm-to-table recipes - was hard to select an entree! The pork chop is a signature dish and was excellent. Would return again!

The food, staff and atmosphere were all top-notch. The staff catered to the guests as if we were the only ones in the restaurant. The best place to enjoy a meal is on the porch

We picked the restaurant at random and were not sad we did! Fresh seafood, amazing sprouts, great wine selection. Our server was perfect--friendly but not hovering. We learned anecdotally this is one of the spots that supports the local shrimping industry so points up for that! We sat on the porch on a warm night--lovely. I'm marking this as midrange... More

Todd made sure it was a memorable experience! From the fabulous bottle of wine, to the pork & brussel sprouts, finishing with the "coffee & donut". He kept us entertained and provided impeccable service.

We enjoyed 29 South enough to pay them a second visit during our one-week stay on Amelia Island. We started both times with the pulled pork spring rolls. The pork was tasty and incredibly tender. On the first visit I had the catch of the day (corvina) on succotash. The fish was pan seared and cooked perfectly. The second time... More

29 South Eats is a favorite haunt of mine when I'm on Amelia Island. Last night didn't disappoint either. Everything was tasty, service was outstanding (thanks Todd!) and it was a lovely night dining on the porch. Keep this one on your short list when in and around Fernandina Beach.

We will no doubt be coming to this restaurant every time we return to Amelia island. It was our favorite of many delicious meals! Pulled pork egg roll appetizer with cabbage slaw and a sweet chili jam was a perfect mix of temperature, texture and flavors. My husband loved his burger and I still can't stop thinking about my crab... More

We love Amelia Island and all the culinary delights it offers but on this trip we had simply the best meal of our trip and possibly the best in recent memory period. It was pure perfection from start to finish. The staff is attentive, personable and knows their business well. Our waiter, Todd, was not only knowledgeable but was so... More

We stumbled on 29 South on a Sunday evening because other eateries were closed. What a pleasant surprise. The porch was full but we did get a table for two on the patio. My wife had a nice glass of rose with a pretty good fish taco plate. (She wasn't thrilled by the deep fried taco shells but the mahi... More
