This was our second visit to this restaurant. The food was very good as was the service. I had the yellowtail snapper, which was a special that evening, and my husband had the shrimp & grits, and we both started out with their Salad on the Rocks. It has great outdoor seating for people watching.

Had lunch at this casual restaurant. Good service and excellent food. There was a short wait for a table and the hostess suggested that we go across the street to have a drink at the Florida House. Beautiful day, drinks on the front porch then excellent lunch at 29 South

I had the taco's, hubby had chicken sandwich. We were both satisfied with our meals. Then we decided to try the dessert, it was also very good. We're visiting for the winter from Michigan, and will be going back.

We were looking for a late lunch and had read good reviews on this place. We chose to sit outside even though the hostess tried to talk us out of it since the tables were in full sun by that time of day. We were fine. We ordered the Fried Green Tomato Stacks as an appetizer and they were awesome.... More

We had a 5 course fixed price special. The quality was excellent. The presentation and timing could use some work. This restaurant is more of a casual place than a prix fixe kind of place. But it they want to move in that direction, they need to time courses better (There were a couple of long waits, and no offer... More

We went in to this establishment on a recommendation from a local. Small little place. It was like it was difficult for them to say hello and great you. Sorry to bother you with business. We were seated outside because we didn't have reservations and that was nice. Exceptionally long time for wait staff and when I asked questions about... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner on the front porch last Monday night. Although the restaurant was bustling with activity, the level of service we received was perfect - friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Our appetizer (octopus), entrees (salmon & burger) and desert (flourless cake) looked, smelled and tasted great. The appetizer, which was the special of the day,... More

Stopped in for a late lunch. Had the short rib burger. Served with fresh greens. Quite good. Unfortunately, no time for dessert.

It's been some years now, but we never miss having lunch or dinner at 29 South. We had our old favorites, my wife had the shrimp grits and I the pulled pork Cobb salad. The rose matched perfectly with I must say a very generous pour by the glass. Thanks Katlyn for the great service! We'll be back.
