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.

    The food and service were fabulous. Our party of 6 enjoyed several appetizers, steak and fish entrees, and desserts. A burrata appetizer was a favorite, along with redfish and flounder entrees. Desserts were house made. All werelovely and large enough to share. Pacing was perfect. This is the best post-Covid experience we’ve had. Bravo to the staff! We will be back.

    Horrible service and food. Wanted to change my side for a different vegetable, was charged $7 to do so, I said that’s fine. The side of green beans has SEVEN green beans on the plate. I asked the waitress if this was the normal amount they give for a side of green beans and she replied snarkily “that’s a hefty size”….ummm what??? I laughed at the comment because it was so ridiculous. And she said she would see what she could do. Came back with a additional plate of THREE green beans. I just laughed again. You can’t make this up. She literally brought a plate with 3 green beans on it. The place is a joke and they do not care if you leave them a bad review or have a bad experience. Very expensive for the salty mess of food that it is and the staff are unfriendly and RUDE. Save yourself the trouble and go elsewhere and have a better experience.

    Brought my wife here for our anniversary dinner/date. Both of us ended up ordering steak, because we’re awesome. She had the fillet and I had the NY strip, both of which turned out amazing! Best steak on the Island so far… Also, we got a little something extra as it was our anniversary and they brought out a chocolate mousse. Absolutely delicious, and rich. 10 out of ten. Would recommend. Actually, we have some foodie friends coming in for the 4th and we’ll likely be back

    We were there for Father’s Day and they were slammed. Plastic cups for water, two crab cake entrees came out essentially room temperature (sides were hot), we had a Caesar salad that was super dry with large pieces of Romaine (8” inches long in one case), etc. food quality was good, but not up to what we’ve come to expect and may have been a new chef. My husband was turned off by the cool crab cakes and no longer wanted the meal. When I said this, the owner laughed and not in a good way. Needless to say my husband was not a fan of that behavior. We’ve eaten there often and they’ve always treated us well. This was highly out of character. We did take care of the waiter who did his very best on a tough night.

    We celebrated our fiftieth wedding anniversary at Lagniappe. We made a wise choice as it turned out to be a special evening at an excellent restaurant. My wife had a filet and I chose redfish. The redfish would have made Paul Prudhomme proud. We plan to return to this restaurant soon and we recommend it to others. We avoided restaurants during the worst phase of Covid, but we feel liberated now. I noticed that Lagniappe has tables sufficiently separated to qualify as social distance. In every way, this is a fine venue for a special event.

    What a wonderful experience! We were seated in a booth in the main room, which the hostess explained would be a bit quieter. Colleen our server did an outstanding job of making us feel welcomed. The Blackened Swordfish over Caesar Salad was amazing (highly recommend), and Mom's Pecan Crusted Rainbow Trout was smooth and mild. The noise level was a bit too energetic for us toward the end of our meal, as the evening picked up, but it did make it feel like 'this is the place to be!'. Overall quite delicious, and we'll be back.

    The meal was EXCELLENT … Fresh, well-prepared & seasoned perfectly. The service was also outstanding. Our waiter was stellar. The ambiance is nice, but cries out for some soft, slow jazz instead of the harsh television. The noise level is deafening. It was difficult to have a conversation without leaning in & raising one’s voice to be heard or hear.

    Excellent food and service as usual. We sat outside and avoided the major criticism often stated of too much noise. The L salad is one of the owners best inventions which includes a warm, stuffed red pepper that’s a real taste treat.

    As rated, over all experience was good. However, I failed to pick up my credit card as I left. Since I had made a reservation and am a local thought I would have been notified they had my card. By the time I realized what I did and tried to call restaurant was closed. Left a message waiting to hear back.

    The reservation system worked well. I received a text just prior to our arrival that our table was ready, and we were seated as soon as we walked in. The waiter covered all the specials, and the entire menu was full of choices. My shrimp and grits dish was awesome. My husband liked the catfish entree that he ordered. They even surprised my husband with a birthday dessert. I highly recommend Lagniappe!

    Our food and service was good to very good and the menu hA a nice variety. The noise level however was horrendous. I don't know how it was in the front room but in the room we were in which is the one with shares space with the bar it was just awful. We would only eat again at this restaurant if the weather was such that we could eat in the outside Courtyard.

    This lovely restaurant is buzzy and noisy but do not let that deter you. The food is absolutely the best on the island and is equal to fine dining in large cities. The menu has a wide variety of great options but we almost always opt for seafood--except for when they offer the pork shank!
