Although it's at the Amelia Island Plantation, this family-friendly restaurant is open to nonresort guests, many of whom drive in from Jacksonville. The dining room has a casual vibe, with plush, roomy booths and tables overlooking the tennis facility, but the menu is all business. Start with the crab cake—nearly 100% blue crab—or deviled eggs topped with pecanwood smoked bacon. Fresh seafood entrées are a highlight, including the Florida fish muddle (fresh catch
with Mayport shrimp and clams) and line-caught pink snapper with Cohen Farm's pecans and local strawberries. And if you luck out and find she-crab soup on the menu (it's seasonal and not always available), order yourself the biggest bowl or bucket they have.
