Amelia Island bound with 2 "foodies" in the making (11 and 12 year olds)

We are heading to Amelia Island for Thanksgiving and would like to find some great food. Are most of the restaurants posted on the various strings "kid friendly?"

Any insight or suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. Salt would take your kids but it isn't a kid place. Too pricey... too haute..

    I suggest 29 South, Le Clos (where we've taken our kids since they were that age), Horizons and Barbara Jean's.

    Le Clos
    20 S 2nd St, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034

    Barbara Jeans Restaurant
    101 Palm Harbor Pkwy Ste 123, Palm Coast, FL 32137

    1. Merge would be a good choice. It's a fairly new place that turns out good food.

      Merge Restaurant @ 510 South 8th St., Fernandina Beach, FL 904 - 277 - 8797.

      1. re: Littleman

        Chef Adam at Merge is great with kids. I also recommend Arte Pizza, Kelley's Courtyard and Lulu's at the Thompson House. Great barbecue at the beach at Island Barbecue (behind the Hammerhead at Sadler.) All are kid friendly and very good.
