Last month was the one year anniversary of our New Orleans dream wedding. As we recently shared, we honored the event with a romantic weekend trip to sunny Atlantic Beach Florida. Atlantic Beach is just steps away from Neptune Beach. While researching our trip, a quick visit to Yelp revealed there were a wide variety of excellent restaurants in Neptune Beach. The number of 4+ star restaurants seemed rare for a beach location. However, the rave reviews fortunately proved correct.
Our Favorite Neptune Beach Restaurants
On the first day of our stay, we had lunch at Poe’s Tavern. Poe’s is named, of course, after Edgar Allan Poe, who spent some time in the area. The restaurant is large and funky, with the writer’s memorabilia displayed throughout. Do not miss the retro bathroom, where you can listen to one of Poe’s stories while you freshen up. We visited on a beautiful day and chose to sit outside beside a lovely garden. At night, there are fairy lights on the trees, and I imagine the experience is quite magical.
