Had dinner for party of four. Food was terrific and their wine list, although not extensive, was good and reasonable. Our waitress was very attentive. Although a little overpriced, I highly recommend

We went to JMac's with friends who have been dining in St Simons for years and had just heard about it. Under new ownership since July, 2012, this spot should be on your dinner spots for a St Simons visit. Our server was ultra attentive...More
