Fodor's Review

Housed in an 1889 sea-captain's house, this highly regarded Fernandina Beach restaurant caters to locals who crave its comfort-food-inspired dishes like tenderloin meat loaf with spinach, ham, and provolone cheese with shiitake-mushroom gravy and chive whipped potatoes, as well as visiting foodies who have heard the quiet buzz about this cozy, coastal, two-story Victorian from afar. Hardwood floors and marble fireplaces aside, one of Beech Street's most treasured fixtures is pianist John "If-you-can-hum-it-I-can-play-it" Springer, who has been entertaining diners for decades. There are delicious nightly fish specials and an outstanding wine list.

Still great as always

As always, we visit here, have a great meal, then my Daughter does a little duet w/the piano player. Always awesome, interesting food & very consistent.

A Treasure

Our large group meals came off witout a hitch. The food was exceptionally well prepared, timely served and flavored perfectly. Even the children stayed away from the salt and pepper. Our server was knowledgeable, helpful and quite considerate. My meatloaf was simply fantastic - occasionally I use this as a test for the "soul" of a very nice restaurant with the courage to offer it. This passed with flying colors, both for flavor and innovative

stucture. Be sure to stop here - but do reserve. The live pianist was a wonderful addition.
