We both had Dover Sole which was excellent. We also had the Hartford Court Chardonnay which was a perfect match. All meals are expensive.

Amelia Island
About the restaurant
The Louisiana French Creole use the term “lagniappe” to describe something that’s “a little something extra,” and that's exactly what chef owner Brian Grimley knows it takes to transform a dish from mere food into an experience you never forget. Inspired by the culture and flavors of New Orleans, Charleston and Savannah, Chef Grimley's Lagniappe- Amelia Island combines the traditions of the French Creole with unique twists on Southern culinary staples using only the freshest local ingredients. And should you wish to elevate your experience by imbibing one of the many cocktails on the menu, you'll choose from a range of both classic and new wave cocktails inspired by the eclectic spirit of the South.

We had a great meal. The calamari and the oyster appetizers were great. The service was also great. Our waitress, Jessica was very attentive. The food came out quickly and was hot. We had the veal chop and the fillet, both were done very nicely.

In town for a business trip, loved the charm of this old house and the two story restaurant. Service was very good and enjoyed being able to hear each other talk during our meal. Food was well priced and tasted great! Everyone in our party gave this place 5 stars!
