A Rich History in St. Andrews
Uncle Ernie’s is the home of Ernest (Uncle Ernie and Jessie Morris). The original home was built in the late 1800’s making it one of the oldest in St. Andrews. Uncle Ernie was born May 19, 1898, in Point Washington, Florida. He married Aunt Jessie May 7, 1925. They had four children: Ernest Isadora "Bubba", Gaynell, Ezelle, and Donald. Isadora and his wife Eunice bequeathed this home to preserve and convert into a restaurant so that it would serve as a landmark near the St. Andrew Marina where Uncle Ernie was known to many and where he made his livelihood. Jim’s wife, Doris, is Uncle Ernie’s great niece and her mother, Ernestine, Uncle Ernie’s namesake, was in the restaurant business in Bay Minette, Alabama, for 28 years. All photographs and memorabilia you see in the restaurant are here to share and serve the memories of Ernest and Ernestine.
