We tried Uncle Ernie's on a recent trip to the panhandle and really liked it. It overlooks St. Andrews marina, and has a very comfortable nautical atmosphere including old photos on the walls.

There were five of us in our group: three adults and two children, so we got to sample quite a bit of their menu. We were also seated very promptly in the air conditioned interior. That was great, because it was 90 degrees outside.

I had blackened grouper and it was great. Another of the group had the shrimp dinner, said it was great, and one of the children had a hamburger which he really loved. We were given the choice of soup or salad as appetizers, and our salads were great. They also served nice hot bread with butter. It was perfect.

Although primarily a seafood place, you can also get steaks and several Greek or Italian dishes. Dinner prices range between $ 15.00 to $ 25.00. They have a big wine list and a good selection of beer including some microbrews made at Ernie's. They also have a full liquor bar with live music for entertainment on some nights.

Service was very good and friendly, and we will certainly go back again.

My friends Zach & Jenn own a small organic farm named Zenn Naturals.  It is located near Eustis, Florida and was mostly destroyed by Hurricane Irma

They have brought a lot of health and happiness to their customers during their farming venture and I’d like to help them rebuild and get back into business.
