Description: Handmade Modern Cuisine. It isn't enough to step away from the everyday hustle. You need a place to go, a restaurant built to replenish. Step into southern refinement with a bend, visit us on Amelia Island at POGO's Kitchen. A bright, breezed eatery tucked away from the main lines, waiting to unpack your day and refill your glass.

We were happy that Pogo's practices socially distant tables and all staff wear masks. The decor is very stylish. The complimentary boiled peanut hummus served with pita bread was to die for. We had the raw oysters in a unique and flavorful champagne-cucumber vinaigrette. The chef's creative rendition of Double-Baked Potatoes is not your Mama's recipe but rather potato skins wrapped and assembled in a cannoli shape and filled with mashed potatoes and sour cream. {There may have been a bit of cheese piped in as well}. The combination of the crisp potato skin and fluffy potato filling was a "flave-rave".{ Be warned this dish is rich!} My husband had the pepper steak and I had Calamari. Unfortunately the calamari was oversalted. I had it sent back to the kitchen. It was impeccable when it was served to me the second time. I had an Espresso Martini for dessert. Perfection! And it was complimentary due to the overseasoned Calamari. We greatly appreciated this. Servers and Management are friendly and helpful. Do not miss Pogo's Kitchen!

Much exceeded our expectations! Innovative cuisine. Each item was delicious and unique. Beet salad was superb (and we really want to know the ingredients of their version of green goddess dressing.) The ravioli carbonara was not what we expected but was better. And the eggplant was surprising and spicy. The chocolate dessert was well worth the calories.

Delish and great friendly service. We enjoyed some innovative appetizers and the peanut hummus to begin with was delicious. We had beets, halloumi watermelon salad, cauliflower and tuna. Definitely recommend

Stopped in Pogo's for dinner tonight, first time back since all this covid mess. I ordered the mahi and it was wonderful. I will definitely be back!

The decor of the restaurant is awesome.
