It's quaint, good, has tasty, family food. Large quantities, in southern style. The breakfast buffet is "died and gone to southern heaven good". I don't think we have ever eaten there except for breakfast, but then we don't usually want lunch till late afternoon. Staff is friendly, food just keeps on coming. One of my favorite places on St Simons.... More

We stopped by for breakfast and one of the other visitors suggested we try the breakfast buffet. Unlike other buffets, your eggs, waffles/french toast/pancakes are cooked fresh. The only negative was that they brought out only slice of french toast. I decided not to order another because I had picked up a carrot muffin and decided that was going to... More

Our favorite lunch on the SSI. We have been eating here for years and love mimosas and shrimp salad croissant sandwiches and catch of the day for Saturday lunch. Family owned and operated by great people. Locally bought ingeridents, fast friendly service.

Stopped in for breakfast while visiting St. Simons. The restaurant is right near the pier in the Village on Mallory. Tim and Melissa Wellford have been serving their legendary breakfast and lunch since 1989, and if you are going sightseeing or climbing the Lighthouse nearby, the hearty breakfast buffet will fill the bill, and energize you for the rest of...

We stayed st St Simon 4 days and ate breakfast there twice. We ordered the buffet and were completely satisfied. Some items like bacon, biscuits, gravy, sausage and fruit are on the bar but the eggs, waffles and pancakes are cooked as you order. Waitresses were attentive but not hovering.

Very cute little restaurant in St Simon's Georgia. The only issue is the lack of required facilities the government mandates for the handicapped. There are none.

My wife and I enjoyed eating at an outside table and appreciating the fine October weather. The food is excellent and the service is terrific, no surly servers here! Prices are very reasonable, no inflated island pricing. If you are really hungry they have an all you can eat breakfast buffet available. I enthusiastically recommend!

Thank Phastphil
