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.

    Food was outstanding, but a little overpriced. Service was mediocre, possibly because we were a party of six & a 20% gratuity was added automatically. Tables are extremely close together - so close it was hard to squeeze between them to be seated. Very little ambiance- so loud it was difficult to carry on a conversation.

    My wife and I have always enjoyed everything about Lagniappe. Great food and service. Whenever I see negative reviews my first thoughts are, if someone complains likely they are the problem. Of course, they would like to really aggressively argue their points. We love the owners , staff, and service at Lagniappe!!!

    Unbelievably rude and aggressive owner. We had a complaint and instead of listening, he became extremely combative and defensive. He made a complete scene and made us feel terrible for returning a dish that was cooked completely wrong. We love this restaurant and routinely come but this will unfortunately be our last time here after being treated so poorly.

    Fantastic server who knew the menu and made recommendations when asked. Fried shrimp platter had a generous number of shrimp with good slaw and fries. Captain curry salmon was superb--not only the curry with tomato jam on the fish but the glazed brussels sprouts and lightly seasoned rice. Side salads were delicious--everyone raved about the tupelo honey vinaigrette, and the daikon radish slices were a nice contrast.

    Kudos to the chef for the sumptuously delicious specials as well as the daily menu offerings. The tender scallops were served successfully with sausage ravioli. The hefty-sized portion of trout was served over a bed of savory succotash. The presentation of the dishes is thoughtful and enhances the dining experience. The craft cocktails were very good. The space is attractive. Our waiter was efficient and aimed to please. He was very knowledgeable about the menu. The space is lovely, the atmosphere was very energetic and a bit loud.

    Asked for a booth or table away from bar in reservation. We were seated at a table next to bar. Couple in front of us without reservations were seated at a booth away from bar. Probably regulars. Otherwise food and service were good. Best fried green tomatoes I’ve ever had. Will go again.

    The pricing on drinks were what I consider obnoxious. $24 for a bourbon on the rocks. Buffalo Trace was used and it is the bottom of the barrel for Buffalo Trace. When questioning the bar tab I was told that a 2 ounce serving was used. $24 for a 2 oz drink. When told the lemon drop martini was not good, we were told that their policy is to not give a credit if made by their receipe. BTW the bourbon on the rocks price was not posted on any menu. If anyone would be foolish enough to eat there after my experience, please remember you are dealing with less than honorable management. I would welcome the owners to call me to explain their deceptive practices. Al Tyre 770 371 2960.
