This is our favorite restaurant on Jekyll. The shrimp and pork very good. The side dishes are large and the squash casserole and sweet potato casserole are yummy! Service is excellent and servers friendly. Love this place!

Come hungry! Tried the pot roast and shrimp n grits... both were outstanding. Finished with all three deserts and was happiest with the key lime pie.

The service is first come first served! It is always worth your wait. Take the time to enjoy talking to fellow patrons. Service is always great and the manager comes to each table to check on service and food.

I'm sorry but we do not take reservations. It is recommended that you get here at 5 when we open and we can pretty much accommodate you at that point.
