    The meal was very good but appetizers were better. We had steak and sides of kale and Brussels sprouts. Kale was under cooked and too garlicky for my tastes. Brussels flight had a nice misleading of flavor. The tenderloin was a bit more cooked than I like for medium rare but its flavor was excellent. Bar service was not too good. Seems after they were told we were waiting for a table and not eating a meal at the bar, bar tenders found other things to do. Wait staff was very polite as were hostesses. Service was attentive and not too overbearing. Given the popularity, it was nice not to be rushed. We had a nice leisurely meal and I’d go back.

    We had a wonderful experience for our first time at Cowford Chophouse. We had dinner reservations to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and our child's birthday. The service and attention to detail were exceptional---as well as all the food and drinks. We would highly recommend Cowford Chophouse to the exceptional fine dining experience.

    We made reservations about 2weeks in advance. We had reservations at 5pm for our anniversary. It was our first time. Usually we frequent a 5 star restaurant in Fernandina. We had to wait to be seated, when seated it was a very noisy area in the bar. We were moved to the second floor. It was better, but as the night went on, it became very noisy. My husband had the tomahawk steak. He asked for medium, but it was a little on the rare side. The waiter was too busy to check on drinks, as well as check if the steak was correct. He had already eaten some. Although the steak was “aged” it was not as tender as I expected it to be. The duck fat cornbread was good, but I was not a fan of the anise after taste. The baked Alaska was a total disappointment. While the ice cream had a good flavor, the carrot cake was frozen solid. It was obvious it was torched and not baked. Afterwards, we went on the balcony to take a picture to commemorate our anniversary. We were told to leave by the wait staff, because it was closed for a party. No one cared that we were taking a picture, but by then, we didn’t care to have a picture anymore. After spending almost $300 for substandard food, I would think a picture would be fine. I was very disappointed in Cowfords and while they look professional and it’s a beautiful place, I would not return. I definitely would not have a party there. The food was a disappointment as well. My husband gave it a 3, but I would give it a 2. Only because of the service organization and friendliness of the servers.

    Our first experience at Cowford Chophouse was outstanding in every way. We requested a change in reservation time and they very graciously did so. Our waitress, Noelle, is one of the dearest, kindest, and most importantly, very conscientious and efficient. Giovanni was very hospitable and helpful. All of the staff we encountered were equally efficient and kind. Oh, the food: again, over the top!

    We went here to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. Service was absolutely outstanding both at the bar and at our table. We had cocktails first at the rooftop bar which is recommended if you've never been here before. For dinner, we started with the bone marrow and cornbread appetizers; both were very good. Our waiter was very accommodating and wrapped up the leftover bones so we could bring them home to our dogs. Shrimp cocktail was very good, Caesar salad was good but did not taste traditional - had a vinegarette flavor. We shared the Porterhouse steak topped with amazing foie gras -it made me wish I had gotten the foie gras as an appetizer. The steak was huge and delicious - we had leftovers for days! Brussel sprouts were wonderful; we had to take my husband's baked potato home because we were stuffed! That didn't stop us from sharing the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert - neither of us are huge pumpkin fans but this was exceptional! Overall a very lovely evening.

    Maybe it was because it was an after 9 res. Ive eaten here several times, ribeye, filet, spinalis, bone marrow app etc. I also get the steak frites, got it again tonight, definitely wasn't rare, the pre sliced presentation was very meh. I didn't bother to say anything, was on a date, her ribeye was great. The server Jim, was very nice and cordial, I enjoyed it. Oh and the steak tartare here rocks, I like the addition of the egg.

    This was our second visit to Cowford and won't be our last. Donald S. was our server for both events, and he couldn't have been more pleasant or efficient (nor smiled more!), all without ever making us feel rushed. The entire staff is so polished and precisely coordinated, you'll barely notice as one course is swept away and the next arrives. I don't need to go into the details of what we ate -- from appetizers to dessert, everything was as beautiful as it was scrumptious. They also added several detailed touches to celebrate a birthday which made the evening more special. We'll be back for our next special occasion!

    First time trying Wagyu beef. definitely a difference between that and “regular” cuts on the menu. However hard to justify the price difference $90 for an 8oz vs $60something for the same sized filet. Service and atmosphere were great. Definitely an upper scale restaurant would only return on special occasions or if given a gift card!

    It was my birthday. We were supposed to get rooftop, but it wasn’t available. Then the brussels sprouts were mushy so we ordered potatoes augratain and that took 20 min. I do wish that when the server knew we wanted to share a steak he would’ve said the filet was on the smaller side. Then they “ran out” of the baked alaska which is the dessert I really wanted. We took home the cinnamon roll crème brûlée but the cinnamon roll wasn’t cooked all the way, so it wasn’t very good. The drinks were great, the oysters and tuna tartare were fabulous though.

    Service was very good. Food was a disappointment. I ordered Chilean Sea Bass and maybe I shouldn’t have ordered fish in a steak house. It was fishy tasting and terribly salty. A big disappointment. Another person had steak which she said was excellent and 2 others ordered lamb chops which they said were good bit not great. Onion string were had by all and we all agreed they were greasy & soggy. We will not go back b
