Average food, slow service. But worth going just to enjoy the big beautiful ocean. They try hard and it is a great place for drinks and music.

The view is the best one we found on the Island. The food was fantastic. We had the swordfish and it was cooked perfectly. The band started playing during dinner so it was a bit hard to hear after that but they were very good. Make a reservation if you want to eat inside during hot months. Inside seating is... More

We came here for a birthday celebration. I called a few days in advance and Michael really fixed me up! We had a wonderfully romantic dinner experience! Our food was tasty and the environment was very nice. We loved it! Thank you Michael for helping make our birthday dinner special!

I got chicken instead of the grouper that was ordered and pork chops were overcooked. we were compensated for $11 of the... More

Seafood not fresh and not local. Ordered a basic dry martini, but the bar had no olives! Only good part was view, sitting outside and we had a fabulous waitress. Not her fault

Real southern food cooked by southerners . OMgosh yummy. Shrimp and grits to die for! Ossobuco that slid off the bone tender. The smells will make you think that you gained 25 pounds, but you will laugh and have so much fun with the staff and hopefully your company that you will leave lighthearted and very full. A must when... More

We walked by a few times since we were staying around the corner. Didn't look like much, so so glad we went for dinner (recommendation from Kevin, our Trolley Tour guide that's been on St Simons forever!). Was pretty busy, especially outdoors. We sat at the bar, which was nice. The patrons were very friendly as was the staff. Okay,... More
