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.

    Our "GoTo" place for a reason! Outstanding selection of wonderfully prepared delights like Redfish w/ Oysters (and pickled collards-YUM), Shrimp Mac-n-Cheese and the Veal !! Wow - all so so good! This was my birthday dinner and while the ladies had nice wines - i got the Smoked Manhatten which was outstanding made with Woodford and served in a large snifter. Kelsy was super nice and brought out a candled chocolate mousse dish that we all thought was fabulous too. Our Favorite on Amelia Island!

    Nice restaurant. Honored our reservation request for outside table after initial misfire. Outside patio area was pleasant, inside pretty noisy. Service was good, friendly and accommodating. Casual dress of servers was bit underwhelming for prive levels. Food was mediocre at best. Blackened reddish was spicy, but not truly blackened, just sautéed. NY strip steak ordered rare, was on wrong side of medium. Poutine appetizer was good. Caesar salad was bland. Probably won't be back.

    Lagniappe is our favorite restaurant and I was very disappointed with the special of the night. The Wahoo came out extremely dry and we returned it. My husband ordered the trout, his personal favorite, and was delicious as always. I also ordered this in exchange and it was perfect too. We’ll be back soon. Sharon Beebe

    Service was great - Christopher was a hoot as our server. The drinks were delicious and well crafted. Dinner was very, very good except - husband ordered a lobster tail addition to his filet Mignon - and honestly we have seen larger shrimp than the lobster served for the $20 extra charge. Other than that it was a wonderful evening. His filet was cooked perfectly. Next time we will skip the lobster add-on!! We absolutely highly recommend dinner here.

    The mussels that we got for our appetizer half of them were very gritty. The shrimp and grits entrée was excessively salty. The Keylime pie cake and the pot de creme was very good. Our server was very good and apologetic as we told him to tell the chef how gritty the mussels were.

    We had dinner for the end of our girls weekend. We ordered plates to share and everything was delicious. Freshly prepared. We had the red snapper blackened with rice and collards and the Mac’n cheese with shrimp and chorizo.. This came in a huge bowl. Delicious with just a little spice from the chorizo. We also tried a bread salad with heirloom tomatoes and .country ham crisps. It had pesto on it and was a delicious blend of flavors. What a wonderful salad. We started with the crispy fried oyster appetizer. Very good size serving for sharing and the oysters were cooked to perfection. Very nice wine list as well. We shared the chocolate torte for dessert, dense and chocolatey served with whipped cream and fruit. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want deliciously prepared food in a casual atmosphere. Our waitress was very helpful with suggestions and was very attentive throughout.

    The food and service were outstanding. Tables a a little close to each other and with a full house on Saturday evening, it made it difficult to carry on a conversation. I have a hearing problem and the background conversations caused a problem for me

    College Reunion friend get together! Amazing food, excellent drinks and Outstanding waiter. Christopher G was attentive, personable, and made our dining experience so fun. Super fast service and wonderful suggestions. The restaurant is absolutely 5 star quality in every sense of the rating. Would happily eat there multiple nights in a row, but only if Chris G would serve our table again.

    Best oysters! “Chicken fried” Tasty batter and tender, first quality oysters. We each had different steak entrees which were well prepared and yummy. Cocktails were outstanding. Service excellent. It’s an upscale but relaxed atmosphere. Plan ahead in order to get a reservation.

    Lagniappe has instantly become our Amelia Island favorite.Food is often unique but always wonderful ! Had a small concern at our last visit which was resolved immediately ,above and beyond our expectations. I hate to recommend Lagniappe, which I certainly do, as having you there may prevent me from getting a table.

    I cannot live without Lagniappe's steak frites (although I substitute mashed potatoes for the fries); also pastrami is outstanding. I just wish they'd put potato salad back on the menu! It was so good! Highly recommend. I especially loved our waitress, Stella, who made it so perfect.

    Dinner was very disappointing. Felt like an over priced fast food meal. Breading would not stay on shrimp. Requested extra crispy fries and they were soggy. Not fine dining at all and the prices were close to fine dining prices. To top it off they put a very loud private party in the same room with us which made it difficult for us to talk at our table. Definitely do not recommend.

    My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience at Lagniappe. Our server, Stella, was so attentive. She gave us some wonderful recommendations and was able to accommodate our ever request. The atmosphere was casual yet sophisticated and very romantic. Food was delicious…try the chimichurri sauce! We had the filet and the fresh catch, pan seared flounder. Amazing!!! Can’t say enough good things about this establishment. Highly recommend!
