29 South is a restaurant we have driven past on numerous occasions while exploring the side streets of historic Fernandina Beach, Florida.
It takes a little over three hours to drive from our house to Fernandina Beach, Florida. The car was piled high with beach gear, two toddlers, a wiener dog and our co-dependent anxiety ridden Jack Russell terrier.
A death in the family, gloomy weather, and a lack of time to cook have all contributed to a less than stellar start to the New Year.
I like a good deal as much as the next guy, and when I saw a Groupon for the Wharf Express, I decided to pick one up.
This past weekend our friends Angie and Travis came down from Atlanta for a visit.
Sometimes the road less traveled leads to an amazing meal. County Road 243 in Madison County is one such road.
Calico Jacks is located on Capital Circle NE in an unassuming tan building with ample parking on three sides. My friend Joe joined me for lunch, and after finding a spot we made our way towards the restaurant. On the large patio a few solitary patrons sipped long necks. It was 11:30 a.m.
Ever since I went to coast as a boy to eat fried claims and feed the seagulls I have had a soft spot for seafood shacks. The food was usually fried and came on paper plates. The beers were served in thin plastic cups.
