The local shrimp, as well as the selection of sides was excellent. Service was good. Atmosphere was good. Parking was a problem both times we visited.

We went there two times for dinner! We had such a grey time and our food was very good. I hope we'll be able to come back sometime!

We have vacationed on Jekyll Island for more than twenty years, and while we love the island itself, we normally have to leave and go elsewhere to enjoy a good meal. I'm not sure why they can't get a good restaurant on Jekyll island. Also, it seems that when a restaurant does find a good chef...they can't keep them! We... More

Service was great, and food even better. 2 had pork tenderloin, a bistro sandwich and a fried green tomato with bacon. Best FGT ever! Everyone at the table agreed. Had peach cobbler and bread pudding for dessert - yummy!

Absolutely fantastic dining. I had the stuffed Flounder along with their take on fried okra, along with collard greens. I was the one stuffed after this dinner. I also tried the Squash Casserole. Excellent.

Hotel recommended this restaurant which is a part of another hotel close to driftwood beach. Food was marginal but affordable. Service was only fair, fast and they misunderstood one of our group's order which was important since she is gluten free. Not coming back.

My wife and I had an early dinner on a Friday evening. Service was good and I found the food to be tasty. It is nothing exceptional, but a reasonable value. I did encounter what I considered to be a major problem. I went to the restroom and there was a gentleman in the commode stall talking on a cell... More
