Younger couple purchased in past few years and is working on the interior updates. They've added a new deck out back. The food is still wonderful with shrimp & grits, there is a flounder that was on Diners, Dive-Ins & Digs of which I am a fan. Great staff that comes & stays for years, wonderful sauces, sweet potato fries,etc.... More

My husband and I are locals to SSI and sadly had not been to Blackwater in years -- mostly because the shopping village it is located in (Redfern) is a big tourist spot. But the first cold weekend this fall, we decided to give them a try for lunch. We headed out a little early though (11:30) and when we... More

We found this restaurant through a discount coupon, and we were not disappointed. The menu, although a wee bit pricy, includes a nice variety of fish, beef and chicken. The atmosphere was very comfortable and casual. The waitstaff was very friendly and efficient. We did eat at an early hour since we had two small children with us, but I... More

Fresh local seafood, interesting side dishes and friendly staff. Bar seems to be visited by locals lending a convivial atmosphere.

I usually do not write a restaurant review after one visit. Every restaurant deserves to be scored by folk that have given it a few chances. But there were 4 of us on this visit, and we were all raving. Wonderful food, wonderful service. Try the Tybee Island Blonde beer. I did not order the shrimp and grits but the... More

Great service. Love the Cajun pasta and the corn bread to die for. I had a good experience there. Try it out if u like rustic decor but great food and service.

Do you ever want to just "go home"? I was born and raised in the SOUTH by a grandmother who could cook up a feast fit for a king! When she cooked, there were never any leftovers at home...people took it with them! That said, this meal took me back to my childhood...the creamed corn was superb...NO ADDED SUGAR, thank... More

Interesting comment below about the odor. My husband and I walked in a few weeks ago... early Sept and the odor was terrible. Smelled like dirty dishwater. We had heard good things and the menu looks great but we just couldn't eat there. Had a drink at the bar (not to be rude) then left. Maybe they just had some... More

We first walked in and the odor was like a strong. We sat in the back of the restaurant and it wasn't so bad there. The food was ok. We have been here last year and I think it went down hill.

We always enjoy our meals at the Blackwater Grill and visit almost every time we are on SSI. Our order ranged from crab cakes to shrimp & grits to red snapper with a delicious mango sauce to Jambalaya. Everyone was pleased with their meal. The service was top notch and the manager came by to make sure everyone was being... More
