First of all Georgia probably has the best tasting shrimp right out of the Atlantic of any location in the world. Secondly, Blackwater Grill does an outstanding job of preparing the Fried Shrimp and then dresses it up with accents such as remoulade, jalapeno tartar sauce and horseradish cocktail sauce. WOW! Not to mention the outstanding Yukon Gold mashed potatoes.... More

Steak was cooked perfectly and you have to try the cheese spread with crackers. They also make great drinks here. Decor is a little run down and needs updating. It has never been packed any of the times I have gone. Kind of puzzling? I think there were less than 10 each of the four times I have been there.

My family and I came to St.Simons for the weekend. Our first night on the island we found the black water grill and decided to give it a try. When we arrived we had to wait about an hour because we didn't have a reservation. When we got seated the waitress was friendly and took our orders. We ordered the... More

While we quickly ran up a $100 bill due to multiple drinks, the food here was the absolute best of any place we ate. I got the best Jambalaya I have ever had, and my wife was extremely happy with her food also. She also tried a cocktail special they call a Blackwater Honey, and she liked it so much... More

Blackwater remains my overall favorite place to eat at SSI. Pleasant, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Fresh fish and shrimp always good, some innovative sides usually available.

This should be at the bottom of the list on st simons island. Brunswick stew- not bad. Crab soup-try tomato without the crabs. Wedge salad- wedge of lettuce with two small slices of tomato & two cucumber slices. Jambalaya pasta-really a sad excuse. Fish- try star-kist tuna.There are plenty good restaurants around town.

A locals favorite! Guaranteed to always have a great meal! The complimentary appetizer is delicious! The Boudin fritters are my husbands favorite. They also have the best shrimp and grits on the island, trust me, I have tried them all !!! The service is always great, and they aim to please! If you would like your dish cooked differently, or...

We've been visiting St Simons for years but had not been to Blackwater Grill. A deal from Restaurant.com got us in the door. The setting is low key and kids will do fine here. Everyone at the table loved the crackers and cream cheese spread brought to the table when you arrive. Homemade sangria was fruity and wonderful! Shrimp and... More
