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.

We use to come to this restaurant when we lived in Brunswick! Now 17 years later we came back and Sandcastles was on our list to visit. Great food! Breakfast has an option of a buffet. Yum!!! Eggs cooked to order, waffles, pancakes and French toast. The cheese grits were awesome! Great place to have breakfast and take a walk... More

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!

We stopped there for lunch and the chowder was very good. The service was quick with a friendly waitress. The price was very reasonable also.

We wanted a Bloody Mary and the place looked relatively 'unbusy' so we stopped and said we were only there for drinks and wanted to sit outside. NO PROBLEM. Saw the menu and decided on breakfast the next day (btw- the Mary's were really good). Breakfast is great southern food- yummy biscuits. One of our party had the gravy to... More

After seeing an interview after hurricane Matthew past on our local paper website, I had to go and visit. The senior citizen breakfast was good with choices of menu for a low price. However, bearing in mind it was quite busy at 08.30, my pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon could have been a tad hotter. I do wish restaurants would... More

To-day we had lunch at the Sandcastle Cafe & Grill at Saint Simons Island (between Savannah and Jacksonville). The Sandcastle Cafe & Grill is located in the pretty village center and close to the sea and the pier. We very much enjoyed this restaurant, the good food and the service.

I can't say enough great things about this little restaurant in the Village area of St. Simon's Island. We went there for breakfast, to sample the items on their buffet. Normally, we avoid buffets because the food tends to be bland, mass prepared and just plain yucky. The Sandcastle's breakfast buffet was outstanding! As soon as you walk in and... More
