We came for lunch on a Saturday and they were extremely busy. Even though we had a reservation, we still had to wait. We ate around to the side of the porch area which was nice and quiet. I checked out the inside of the restaurant and it's very plain, no fuss, a very casual place with tables and paper... More

Great Southern Fair. Make sure to order the fried green tomatoes, best I ever had. Smoked mussels were outstanding as well. Try to sit at table 4 - supposedly it's where Jay Leno and Sinefeld sit when in town for the car show.

For apps, ty the smoked pork spring rolls. For entrees, the strip is awesome as is the fried chicken. The dessert selection... More

Well 29 South offers you that opportunity, to dine on a true porch along a sidewalk or inside an early 1900's house. The porch is very comfortable in nice weather with ceiling fans to stir the air. 29 South has great menus, and you can take a look at all of them, get some history of the building, directions, address,...

Small but great farm to table restaurant. Food prepared so well! Started with apps and while all were good you HAVE to have the smoked mussels and be sure to dip the bread in the incredible tomato broth!! So smokey good! Everyone (6 of us) in the group loved their entrees -the shirt ribs were probably the favorite. Don't miss... More

What a grand time. This restaurant is very nice. Our friends have eaten here several times and rate it highly. The service is super. The food was cooked to perfection. The menu is pretty wide offering many choices. We had a new wine recommended by our exceptional waiter. They make you feel welcome.

We live in Fernandina Beach but haven't eaten here for several years. Our experience back then was not something we were anxious to repeat. This visit was better. The food was good, but not great. The service was very good. We'll probably go back sometime in the future.
