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 Restaurant 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.

The atmosphere is very pleasant.
The food was terrific. I had the catfish dinner with hoppin John and collards. It was prepared in a wonderful manner. We also ordered a couple of vegetable sides - crispy brussel sprouts and asparagus. They were also delicious. Will definitely return again when we are in the area.

Anniversary (33rd) Dinner Date. So Delicious! We had the Scallops(bacon corn relish) and the Blackened Redfish (creole rice, tasso hollandaise, fried oysters - OUTSTANDING). Both were super fresh, perfectly seasoned and prepared. Loved every bite and will return soon! They lived up to their name (Lagniappe means a little something extra) by bringing out a Wonderful Bom Bomb with the BEST Chocolate ice cream ball encased in super yummy chocolate with mounds of whipped cream and just WOW!!!!

Chef Brian always brings an imaginative selection of entrees to the table. Being a frequent patron, I selected a 16 oz cut of Ribeye. It was beautifully grilled to perfection. It was presented on a large wooden, cutting board accompanied by a serving of broccolini and collard greens. (Being from the Deep South, I opted for the greens rather than the baked potato.) Being a foodie, I often order “off menu.” Our server, Montana, offered excellent service which completed a near perfect dining experience.

We arrived on time for our 5:30pm reservation. Seating was prompt and we immediately ordered cocktails. It took 25 minutes for all of our drinks to finally arrive at our table. Two glasses of wine were delivered first and then ten minutes later the other four drinks. Appetizers were brought to our table shortly after ordering and were good. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. When it came time for the checks, the waitress found it impossible to separate the checks. She attempted to assign drinks and food to each of the three couples and became frustrated. Due to the fact the drinks and food ordered were not equal, we did not simply want to split three ways. This did not make her happy. I love Lagniappe and will return but never with two other couples. Our table was not conducive to visiting and it was truly an uncomfortable evening. we had come to celebrate our friends purchasing a home on Amelia Island. It was not the dining experience I anticipated.

We had dinner there on Sat Oct 26th. Great restaurant in Amelia. Everyone’s dinners were excellent. Plates our party had were the Steak and Frites, scallops and Catfish. Service was excellent and we moved to the outside patio for dessert and the small fire pit was a nice added touch. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

You can get better food at much lower prices in this area. However, they do have the best crab cakes on Amelia Island.
