What they do, they do well

Steamed shrimp - fresh wild caught shrimp. Two dipping sauces, a mildish cocktail sauce and a Buffalo wings sauce. Very well cooked shrimp and cold beer by the water. Simple and well executed. Sometimes the simple things are the best and the hardest to do. The Rah Bar does this very well.

Visited for lunch based on the favorable reviews. Pier is run down, a few tables in the hot sun, some with umbrellas. Rusty bar stools without padding to sit on. Ouch! Birds watching you eat your food. The shrimp salad on a crossant was good. Service was slow.

This place has mostly outside seating so if the weather is nice it's a great place to hangout and get a bite to eat or have a few drinks. I definitely recommend the peel and eat shrimp they are served hot which is different but really good. The crab legs were good as well. They also have a decent happy... More

We ended our day here over a couple of their signature drinks, steamed shrimp and sausage dogs. Excellent food, great atmosphere.

First of all, the menu link on Trip Advisor is incorrect, it must be for Latitude 31 that is the inside part of the restaurant. The menu was very limited, not much for my kids who are not big fans of steamed shellfish. The crab bisque was tasty, typically rich and plenty of small pieces of crab. The steamed peel-your-own...

There are a lot of people who rate this restaurant/bar a five star but we're confused why, because when we read all the 2 and 3 star reviews, we encountered all of the same issues. Yes the steamed spiced shrimp is good, but come on, how hard is THAT to make? College kids make it in their dorm. The shrimp... More

We went on a very windy late afternoon with our 4yo son. The waiter was pretty cold and unresponsive. After we ordered drinks and an appetizer, he never returned to take our dinner order. About 20min or so after our appetizer was gone I finally flagged down another (very sweet) waitress who quickly put in our order ($8 for a... More

I can't say enough positive things about the Rah Bar. My husband and I were married on Jekyll and we visit quite often. Whenever we are lucky enough to make a trip down we make a beeline to the Rah Bar & it's always our first stop on the island. It is a place we fell in love with immediately... More

The Rar Bar is located at the wharf marina on the grounds of the Jekyll Island Club. It is very small on the inside of the bar area, but there is outside seating. The outside seting offers a wonderful view of the sunset over the lake. I ordered the low country boil and it was delicious.The staff was friendly and... More

Always a great spot for some beer and basic seafood. Great spot for atmosphere but food won't blow you away, so I would recommend for lunch over dinner.
