Burlingame is in our opinion the best restaurant in Fernandina! We have always had extraordinary food and service there. The owners are always in the restaurant making sure all goes well. The octopus is amazing and the Brussel sprouts are wonderful. When we are in Fernandina , we will always go there!

Fantastic service (Nina) and an inspired menu which tantalized the taste buds! The cheese and charcuterie board was beautiful, and while I have never enjoyed Brussel sprouts, my Mom ordered the appetizer and it was wonderful. I am converted, but ONLY at Burlingame! The Salmon and Shrimp & Grits we out of this world and both came with exceptionally fresh and well seasoned vegetables, and let me tell you, the chef made magical, creamy delicious grits! We ended with a beautiful pecan pie, with brown butter ice cream. Goodness gracious! Highly recommended, excellent cocktail and wine list and just lovely people.

Thoroughly enjoyable evening. We sat outside, tables nicely spaced and staff all wearing masks. We didn't have an appetizer but were served some lovely bread. Our mains were the surf and turf and shrimps with grits...both dishes were superb. For dessert we shared the chocolate cup with raspberry sorbet..also delish. Highly recommend this restaurant and its food.

A real gem. Food and service is superb. We live in Charleston, SC & were visiting Amelia, Island and had dinner at Burlingame. If my wife and I lived in the area we would consider this a FAVORITE restaurant of ours. From the homemade bread, grilled octopus, charcuterie plate, sea bass & steak frites, my wife and I were enjoying our dinner. Also, if you are into martinis & cocktails, the female bartender is an amazing mixologist. Run, not walk to this amazing restaurant.

Fabulous Friday evening on the back patio!
We started with a bottle of Picket Fence pinot noir to accompany two of the meats on the charctuerie board as an appetizer.
My wife thoroughly enjoyed her short rib and lobster entree. My crispy skin salmon was delicious.
We finished with the chocolate torte for dessert. Highly recommend saving room for it!
Wonderful, warm friendly service from Anthony.
Look forward to our next visit to try the new spring salad, which looked incredible as it went to several nearby tables.

Simply outstanding on all levels. Fried Brussels sprouts as starter, salad, entrees were shrimp and grits and steak frites. All were perfect. Wait staff very attentive, thank you Calley. Best dinner on Amelia Island, and we did have a number of great meals while vacationing there to compare.

Not our first visit and we have always enjoyed our selections. This most recent visit was no different EXCEPT for the HEAVY downpour that occurred as we were leaving.

The management could not have been any more helpful. Provided umbrellas, walked my wife & daughter out to our car out front and really went out of their way to assist.

We'll be back!

Frankly we had one of the worst meals we have ever had. Both of our meat entrees were tough, fatty and had grizzle. However the octopus appetizer was very good. The wine was just ok. My wife’s pork was taken off the bill. Very disappointing since it was her birthday
overnight celebration in Fernandina.

Place was very loud and the service was lousy. At one point we could not get anyone's attention to simply bring some salt & pepper and I ended having to get up and get them from the service counter. Food was Ok.

The ambiance on the patio is perfect. We started with east-coast oysters and cocktails, the Lovely Rita is refreshing, smokey, and slightly spicy. The sea bass was superb. The plate was beautiful and the flavors were delicious. The steak frites was equally good. The wine list offers a great selection as well. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and gave us just the right amount of attention. Burlingame is one of our favorite restaurants on the island.
