29 South Eats
Great place!Great food, atmosphere and service. I had the brook trout and endive and my husband had the fried chicken. Both excellent. Lemon tart was to die for!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AM2foodiesLove this place for it's ambience & outdoor porch seating. The wait staff was great and the food we had, pork chop w mac & berry sauce & bbq short ribs, were cooked perfectly. The menu is small but feel there is something on there for everyone. Strongly urge anyone going to make a reservation as they can get very busy. My husband & I think this small restaurant in Fernandia is a little gem!!!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTOP 10 ON MY LIST!As a couple constantly seeking great dining and culinary experiences, we rate 29 South Eats on our top 10 list. The freshest, farm to table ingredients are used in creative recipes yet remaining approachable. We visited for dinner twice during our four day visit to Amelia Island. We must say it saddens us that we cannot visit this establishment on a weekly basis in our hometown :(
chilled creamed pea soup with lobster...oh my goodness...one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth. Another fav dish was the shrimp & grits, just a hint of sherry in the sauce was perfection. Plenty of shrimp both sautéed & fried with bits of sausage decorating the plate. Ieft my wine selection up to the server on both occasions and was not disappointed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the pork chopWe visited 29 South Eats last year when we were in Amelia Island and loved it so much that we returned. I remember how much I loved the pork chop with mac & cheese/preserves. I ordered it again and it didn't disappoint. It was just as amazing this time as it was last year. See you again next year 29 South Eats.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic! Great table nearFantastic! Great table near the chef, wonderful service, wonderful food.

Great vibe and ambiance.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCrazy Good.Superior food and service. The pulled pork salad with deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes was phenomenal. Our kids even couldn't stop talking about the great food! Hands down the best dining experience of our trip!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMJavatales favorite on Amelia IslandThe service was excellent and well paced.The salmon was delicious but could have been enhanced with a few thin slices of sweet onion (but who knows -- I'm a New Yorker).We did a "surf and turf" concept; sea bass special and sweet tea pork. Both entrees were outstanding! For dessert we split the warm donut special which was a bit disappointing. The interior space is small so I would recommend eating on the porch. 29 South was one of the most memorable meals I've had in awhile.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is one of the bestThis place is one of the best places we've been. Wonderful food, great service, and the "coffee and doughnuts" dessert is delightfully different.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was the best food we hadIt was the best food we had on Amelia Island. We enjoyed the fried grouper sandwich, soft chicken tacos, shrimp and grits and pizza. The desserts were awesome and very large. We shared two desserts between five of us and left some dessert on the plate.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA very special place, everythingA very special place, everything was outstanding, I highly recommend it3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choiceMy wife and I had one night to out on the town from a conference and picked 29 South. We had never been there before. Chef Bret blew us away with some of the finest dishes. We had the simple crust appetizers, pulled pork egg rolls, followed up by the pork chop in an apricot sauce which was over the top good. My wife had the shrimp and grits a local favorite which was just as great. Our server was cool and had loved upstairs in the house many years ago. Great time great service .....keep it up and we will be back!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Meal at 29 South!!!Every time we travel from North Carolina we make reservations in advance at 29 South. Over six years we have never been disappointed in the food or service. This time the mussels with roasted tomato was over the top.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIt made our trip to AmeliaIt made our trip to Amelia Island a memorable one.....3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe eat here yearly and haveWe eat here yearly and have enjoyed it each year. The food and service has always been excellent. We eat here during one of the busiest weekends on the island and even with the added hustle and bustle they don't seem to miss a beat.
I must say this year my meal was the best yet! The chef's special NY Strip with whipped potatoes, haricots verts, and a horseradish crema. Yummmmm! All of the dishes that my husband and I have tried over the last several years have not disappointed. This year we had friends with us that aren't foodies - they were leery of the "fancy-pants" menu - and they each cleaned their plate.
