Amelia island restaurantIt’s no secret that Amelia Island is amazing.  Our little barrier island was just selected as one of the Top 25 Islands in the World in the 2013 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.  One of the things that makes our 13 mile island so unique, besides the beach, the southern charm, the wildlife, etc,  is the variety, quality and charm of our Amelia Island restaurants!  Whether you’re looking for a small chef-owned restaurant with an outdoor courtyard or you’re dining on fresh seafood by the ocean, the options of Amelia Island restaurants is endless.  Sometimes it’s just too much to choose from!  But there’s one night a year, where you don’t have to pick, where you can put on your best cocktail attire, and nibble on the best selections from many of our island’s best restaurants.  And that night is just a month away at the 22nd annual Taste of Amelia Island!
