We took our family for dinner while visiting SSI. The menu offered quite a variety & the food was good. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful. Service was fast, but not rushed. Overall, a good pick!

A strong local menu, excellent fried food. The tempura-type batter provides a light touch and smaller servings of old standbys like fried local shrimp are welcome.

Excellent fresh seafood and in a convenient location. We have eaten there several times and always good. We only had one issue. The crab stew had to be sent back because it was only warm.

Came back for the second time in two months, and the host remembered us - a real surprise in these hurried times. The food is excellent, and service is too. We like the section "up the stairs," because it is quieter. The whole experience "felt like home." St. Simons has an abundance of restaurants, but his one has good food... More

This was by far the best dinner we had in Saint Simons Island!!! EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE!!!!!! Our waitress (Lisa I think was her name) was so nice! They are known for their seafood and burgers. I got filet and the Frederica brownie! I can't wait to eat there again next time we're in SSI!

The crab cakes are a very good choice and the daily specials are very reasonable in price. The service was excellent!! If you are looking for a great dining experience this is a great choice. If you save room for desert try their brownie a la mode!!

We went there this evening as the restaurant we intended to go to was closed and we had heard that this was good. The atmosphere and service were excellent. I ordered the fried shrimp platter with cheese grits and house salad. I'm not sure where the shrimp came from but I seriously doubt if it was local. The cheese grits... More

Love this place!!! Great local fare- home made southern style cooking. Some of the salad dressings are even home made. They handled my daughter's food allergies like champs. Can't wait to go back!!

We just went for drinks during their happy hour, but the bartender was very nice and service was great! Will go for dinner next time.

Over three decades, the Frederica House has been like an old friend to me...stayed true and consistent. Yes, there are more popular, trendy places on the island. But you can't beat FH for a family gathering, a quiet place or somewhere to eat a good meal early, before the evening rush.

Thank Ed L
