Friendly staff, pleasant and relaxed atmosphere, good food at reasonable prices. The fresh seafood is good, and some menu options have, in my view at least, been improved.

Our server, Landon, was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about all that was on the menus. We enjoyed everything. Only in town for a week, but will definitely be eating dinner here again.

My family and I are regulars at Blackwater and we eat there at least twice every time we visit our cottage on the island. The food is always made to order and very fresh. Some of our favorite dishes are the shrimp and grits, the mountain trout, fried green tomatoes, and the Brunswick stew. Also, I could eat a basket... More

On a busy night, staff made every effort to get us seated as quickly as possibly. Once seated, there were crackers & cheese to munch on while we awaited our drink order. Orders were taken; later, additional drink orders were placed & delivered; and still later, our server asked if there was anything else we needed. I said, "Dinner?" Suddenly,... More

I ate at the Blackwater Grill with some friends who were visiting from out of town. We all had kids with us. We immediately noticed that the decor needed an update. Our server was ok, though not very visible at times. However, it was not easy to request things we needed (staff acted incredulous when we asked for honey mustard).... More

Whenever we're in St. Simons, stopping by here is a must!! The food is always good, but the pound cake is the reason we come. You need to make reservations or you can sit at the bar. Either way, save room for desert.

Went on a recommendation. Ended up eating there 3 nights in a row. Nice enough for a date night or in flip flops. Ribs are fantastic. Dry rub fall off the bone tasty. Shrimp and Grits wonderful. Angus filet very tender and delicious. Ask for the bacon cheddar cornbread. Very attentive service.

Had a very nice meal here last night. Menu has some interesting selections - I personally recommend the Daufuskie Grouper. Our wait staff, Devan, was awesome.

Great dishes prepared int he Cajun style. I highly recommend the Shrimp and Grits, Blackened Ribeye and Pork Chops. If you want something really spicy, go for the Crawfish Étouffée, Jambalaya or the Grouper Dafuski. This restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Host Guy Fieri liked the Grouper Dafuski.
