We loved this place. Our waiter, Terrance, did a great job of serving us. He took the time to totally explain the restaurant menu and everything sounded so good. My husband and I had the Brunswick Stew. He had the Jambalyla and I had the Cajun Pasta. All of the food was delicious. This place is charming in a funky... More

The food is a cajun seafood. Ask if you aren't sure about the hotness of an entree. I had the shrimp and grits and they were wonderful. The decor is very interesting with different salt and pepper shakers on each table, different items hanging on the walls, etc.

Blackwater Grill had come highly recommended and I had read about it for a long time - I was excited at my first chance to visit. Maybe my expectations were too high: I was underwhelmed. The place is warm and inviting - our welcome was great. Our server was also very good: personable and warm. Food was pretty average to... More

wonderful food, great Atmosphere. The night we went they had Redfish as the special, blackened with a salad of crab and shrimp with a side. IT melted in my mouth! The staff were wonderful and very friendly. Get there Early when the open (5:30) as they stay busy!

While visiting St. Simons Island we read reviews and looked up the menu to Blackwater Grill so we went for lunch on Saturday with high expectations. We were shocked to see only 1 table seated during the lunch hour. We should have asked for the menu before seating. We were disappointed to read that their lunch menu is very limited... More

We've been going for Happy Hour a few months. They have the best Shrimp 'n grits I've ever had. They are now open Friday thru Sunday for lunch. We had lunch there today. We split a ham sandwich and each had a cup of their award winning Brunswick Stew. The ham sandwich was sliced ham (not pressed) served on a... More

The Blackwater Grill is conveniently located in the Redfern Shopping Center - plenty of parking! Menu choices are varied both in variety and prices. The crabcake dinner was very good with sides of collard greens (really nicely seasoned) and hot, fresh sweet potato fries. The Cajun seafood pasta also got good marks and the service was prompt, friendly and professional.

Wow, what can I say. When we arrived at 6:30, we were pleasantly greeted and asked to have a seat in the waiting area and that she would clear a table for us (and pointed to the table in the front section of the restaurant. 15 minutes later and after another couple who arrived after us were seated at the...

This was a surprisingly happy second choice. The first choice was crowded and I'm now glad it was. The food was good the staff was wonderful. Can't wait to visit again.

My wife and I ate at the bar on a slow night. Bartender was very friendly and answered our many questions about the menu. We loved the vibe of the place (mostly locals) and the varied menu. My wife had the crab bisque and I started with the Brunswick stew. Both excellent. I had the jambalaya and my wife had... More
