We are celebrating our 35th Wedding anniversary. We wanted this dinner to be very special--and it was!! Fully recommend the filet Mignon and escargot. Very, very nice. That, coupled with great service, made for a very special evening--one to be remembered for years to come.

This is an excellent, casual restaurant with a varied, thorough menu, excellent service, and locally-sourced menu selections.

Aside from the wine list being on an iPad - that must be requested - this restaurant is excellent. All of the items that we ordered were very fresh and the service was good. I ordered the fried chicken and I would definitely order it...More

We didn't want to have dinner by the pier as we figured that's where all the tourists go, so we picked Halyard. It turned out they had outdoor seating which we like. We were trying to decide between several of the more expensive items on...More

After a disappointing steak meal at the Frederica House a local recommended Halyards. I ordered a filet mignon medium rare and I must say this was the best steak I've ever had in my life. It was served with whipped potatoes and asparagus. I had...More

Ingredients were clearly highest quality. Preparation was excellent. Service just attentive enough. The atmosphere is fine although too many of the Sea Island set slumming on St Simons.... But hostess and staff were very friendly although we were seated by kitchen as the regulars claimed...More

A very nice fine dinning experience. A shout out to Sarah, or waitress, as well as the rest of the staff. It's all good, don't worry about making a bad choice.

Definitely one of the more consistent restaurants on the island. We went on a busy week day and the dining room was very busy, but we were still able to get a table. Our waitress Janey was fun and very efficient and knowledgeable. We had...More

Halyards on St. Simons has been redefining Island Cuisine for 11 popular years. The Island's unrivaled see-and-be-seen dinner spot for locals who know and for coastal visitors who've heard that the Seared Tuna with a Plum Wine Reduction and the Prime N.Y. Strip with Soy Lime Butter will make your evening. That's not to say you should skip the Creamy Blue Crab Bisque or the nightly specials. The atmosphere is casually elegant (coozy lounge furniture in the courtyard and under the awning), the welcome warm (usually by name), the service crisp and attentive, the wine cellar vast (7 Wine Spectator Awards) and the comfortable bar hip and hopping. The menu is the brilliant handiwork of Chef/Owner Dave Snyder that changes nightly and is bold, creative and gloriously rewarding. To be sure you're pleased, Dave roams the front of the house for comments when he's not out fishing for your dinner. As you would expect at a restaurant of Halyards' caliber, reservations are a good idea.
