The fact that they offer petite portions for dinner was a bonus. I loved that I didn't have an over-sized plate that I needed to get a box to take home. It was a perfect size and price for me.

I wasn't expecting much from this place, but I was greatly surprised. The ambiance was extremely pleasant, the cooking was originally southern and the menu was enough to please all pallets. We ate there twice and it was great!

We visit every year and always enjoy their food. Shrimp and grits are very good. The side items are good. The fried shrimp is very good. The batter is not too heavy. Very good service. Friendly staff.

Good food, good service, good atmosphere. We always enjoy a meal here every time we visit Jekyll Island! Love that they have petite meals! (Leaves room for the peach cobbler!) Salads are very fresh!

Who knew Villas by the Sea had a restaurant? It's lovely and quaint with a great menu with petite and regular size options. The petite serving of meatloaf was enough for me in that it was one piece. The meatloaf was good with gravy. I...More
