A real-deal chef with all the amazing resources at hand to create fresh and unique appetizers and entree. The restaurant doesn't feel like a typical Hotel restaurant. Many people dine here from outside the hotel.

The food and service are excellent at this resort restaurant but if you are visiting during the Sea Island busy season 1/3 of your fellow diners will be under 5 years old. I love kids but at dinner it can be a bit much.

Couldn't help but feel we were out of our element here. Didn't really feel comfortable here and the server didn't do anything to make us feel differently. The server made us feel rushed and they really weren't helpful with menu or the questions about the...More
