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.

    Good menu options and cocktails. The food was well prepared and came out timely. Only downside was the waitress failed to check on us after entrees were served and had to cut my steak with a butter knife. At least the steak was tender but for $38 I expect to be given a proper knife.

    Food was excellent, albeit it seemed a bit pricey. The service was fine, not constantly asking how things are going, but didn't leave us waiting too long for the next course or drink or dessert.

    Large portions of well prepared food along with a very reasonably priced wine list make this a good choice on Amelia Island. One downside: the blackened fish I ordered was supposed to come with fried oysters but fried shrimp was substituted without alerting me to the change first.

    Service was slow. Took forever to get our food. Very loud. Could hardly hear each other talk. I ordered the steak frites and the steak was really chewy. Very disappointing. Everyone else’s meal was good.

    Our dinner was superb - we started with fried oysters app, split the cobb salad, and I had the Lamb shank special and my husband enjoyed the Flounder special. I also enjoyed the specialty drink, Saying Goodbye to Summer - it was delicious!

    We made reservations for our anniversary dinner. The food was absolutely amazing and our drinks were equally delicious. Our server was very prompt and attentive. They had great specials, from drinks to desserts. We tipped the kitchen as well, they gave us a hoot with thanks! For starter, we sampled the lobster corn dog. The whole appetizer was awesome but their cocktail sauce was also seriously good. My husband had a huge, tender pork chop. Our waitress described it as life changing, we would have to agree. I ordered the buerre blanc lamb shank, so far beyond my expectations. It felt like a warm hug. The key lime chiffon cake was perfectly plated and not overly sweet or tart. We plan to revisit often!

    The food was well prepared for the most part. Lamb and lobster were seasoned well, tender and tasty. The ctab cakes were over peppered and salted so difficult to taste the crab meat. The vegetables were cooked to perfection, crisp and seasoned well. Staff was knowledgeable, friendly and prompt. Overall it was a very pleasant meal.

    We both ordered a salad with blackened salmon….requested the salmon to be cooked medium rare. We were served water and drinks promptly but after an hour had still not received our meal( not even bread) was asked if we wanted another glass of wine….we requested some bread! Finally our salads arrived and both pieces of salmon were cooked well done.Not the servers fault she had requested MR…..sent back to the kitchen and then waited another 20 minutes and the salmon was raw!!!sent back to the kitchen and was brought back out by the Snarky manager and was told “sorry bout that” We did not expect our meals to be compt but perhaps a “ how can we make this better” would have been nice. We are locals and won’t be back.

    Good all the way around. All 4 of us ordered the mkt catch (flounder) with lump crab. No complaints. It paired well with the Frank Napa chardonnay. A gr8 start with a charcouterie board that a little something for everyone. Efficient, friendly service. The price was right. We’ll return. A lot of competition on Amelia Island for upscale dining. Lagniappe can hold there own.

    Loved this place, was recommended by a friend. We had a reservation and we were sat immediately. It was a small table near the bar, a little loud but was okay for us. John was our waiter and was quick to greet. We had the fried green tomatoes, shrimp Mac and cheese and the fried shrimp basket. All were great, large portions. Would def recommend and we will return when we visit Amelia island in the future.

    This is one of our favorite places on AI to eat. The redfish is wonderful, as well as the crab cakes. BTW - crab cakes did go way up in price - may not do the dinner again, but may do a single in the future.

    We went to Lagniappe yesterday for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Our waiter was fantastic, very accommodating and brought us a complimentary dessert for the occasion. The food came out fast and was great, as well as our cocktails! My one complaint would be that one side of the restaurant had a wonderful, romantic ambiance and we were sat on the other side - which was bright and had less of a romantic feel to it. However, we had a wonderful experience and can’t wait for our next occasion to go again!
