We ate dinner here twice during our recent stay in St. Simons. As usual it was so good. People there are so nice. Seafood out of this world. It is located in the village. You will not be disappointed. Our favorite on the island.

This is a typical restaurant for a touristy area. They're famous for the fried shrimp, and they have earned that reputation. We tried a shrimp sampler and the basic fried shrimp were the best. The place is a little touristy and tacky, but the food...More

Depending on the weather, you can dine inside or outside. Of course, dinning outside has the added advantage of people watching. The meals are ok, but the servers are helpful and friendly. All meals include the self serve free ice cream bar.

We have been there several times, most recently in January of 2018. Nothing fancy, but very good seafood, especially fried the shrimp. If you are looking for table cloth fancy, this is not your place. If you want reasonably priced good seafood that tastes great,...More

Place looks like dozens of other restaurants in the coastal south; wooden booths, friendly waitstaff, not many frills. Really pleased with seafood platters we ordered; oysters, shrimp, hush puppies...can't go wrong!
