    Who's On Fourth: Open on Thanksgiving

    by grandmaR Updated Aug 23, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My sister and BIL ate here twice (without us) and styled it a 'good but pricey' restaurant. I guess they wouldn't have gone back had they not liked it.

    There is an early bird special - 25% off your bill when you are seated by 6:45. But there is a $6 plate charge for shared entrees.

    There is live classical/jazz guitar Friday/Saturday/Sunday. There is both a dining room and a screened porch

    Favorite Dish: My sister sent me a menu, and checked off the following items that they had which she said were very good:

    Appetizers:
    Crab Cake Confit mixed with herbs and sauteed golden brown with savory onion $6.95

    Vegetarian Black Bean Soup Cuban influenced topped with fresh sour cream $2.95

    Entrees:
    Crisp Sweet Diver Scallops, brocolli, lime rissotto cake, orange scented broth and fried leeks $22.95

    Seafood Medley, sauteed shrimp, mussels and scallops simmered with oven roasted tomatoes, herbs and jumbo cous-sous in a savory broth $23.95

    Vegetarian black bean cakes, grilled seasonal vegetables, lingine, chef's marinara served with Parmesan cheese $16.95

    They have specials each night, a children's menu, home-made desserts and they serve wine and beer.

    Beech Street Grill: Great Southern Cuisine

    by zrim Written Apr 7, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    First class all the way. Attentive wait-staff, attractive dining room, superb menu. This is the place for a special meal if you find yourself in Fernandina Beach.

    Becky had the crab-stuffed shrimp with a Tasso ham (redeye) gravy served with cheese grits and greens. the gravy was a nice level of spiciness and the cheese grits were not as runny as the type you might get in a diner.

    I chose the mustard glazed lamb loin. Normally, restaurants that serve lamb will offer a rack of lamb or lamb chops. You don't often see lamb loin on offer. I got a generous portion that was perfectly medium-rare. The lamb came with a mint apple chutney that was delicious.

    For dessert I had the white chocolate cheesecake (excellent) and Becky and I each had a glass of port that stretched our budget.

    Golden Grouper Cafe: Tucked away on a side street

    by grandmaR Updated Feb 22, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were kept waiting even tho we saw an empty table when we went in. Eventually we were put at the table that we had seen empty when we came in. Bob thinks they just make you wait because they can - not because they need to.

    Favorite Dish: I had snapper and Bob asked for pork chops but they were out and it took them some time to relay that information to us. Many people like this restaurant, but we won't be back.

    Palace Saloon: Rowdy late night pub

    by grandmaR Written Feb 22, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have gone by this place many times and have never gone in to eat. I looked it up on the website because I had a picture of it, and the first pictures I found were of a fire. I do not know when the fire was.

    Favorite Dish: Website says: "Florida’s oldest saloon, where sea captains and the Cumberland elite once enjoyed the hospitality and good cheer. Meet your friends in a rich historic setting to partake of your favorite spirits in a casual, jovial atmosphere. The menu includes shrimp, burgers, sandwiches and wings, and live entertainment is often featured. Open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m."

    Crab Trap: Interesting decor

    by grandmaR Updated Jul 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Has an actual crab trap hanging in the ceiling, and other interesting items. The food is good and interesting.

    Favorite Dish: We walked up to the Crab Trap for dinner. I had oyster stew (forgetting that milk sometimes doesn't agree with me) and a salad, and cheese grits, which turned out to be cheese sticks, but with a batter of grits. Bob had an au gratin seafood dish which was too rich for him to eat more than half of. The food was quite reasonable in price.

    Brett's Waterway Cafe, Inc.: Waterfront Cafe

    by grandmaR Updated Jul 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We ate here twice. It is very, very busy and is not open in the middle of the afternoon or on Thanksgiving. This restaurant is right on the water with a deck outside, and there is a very expensive souvenier shop on the street side.

    The first time we came through we didn't eat here at all because we arrived (hungry) at about 2 and they were closed, and at dinner time there was a big waiting line.

    On the way back north in the spring of 2001 we went for dinner as soon as the place opened, and liked it and we thought we got an early bird special which was a good price and that the food was good.

    Favorite Dish: When we got there in the fall of 2001 we did the same- went very early for dinner. We were unhappy to discover that the place wasn't open on Thanksgiving and they were pretty dismissive about our feeling that as a tourist town they needed to be ready to feed people on holidays. They got all high and mighty about letting their people have time with their families.

    They also said they never had early bird specials. This time, we thought the food overpriced and not as good as we remembered. We got prime rib again and it was very fatty. Dinner for two was $44.33

    Florida House: Family style eating

    by grandmaR Updated Jul 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a bed and breakfast which also serves dinner to people that are not guests. The service is family style at big tables with a limited menu - the food is good, there is something for everyone.
