“Great evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

There were 8 of us for dinner last night and we all enjoyed every bite. Great soft shell crab appetizer and wonderful sea food specials. It was nice and quiet so 8 people can all hear each other but we had wonderful piano music in the background. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Fancier than we'd planned”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

As we were bar-hopping and restaraunt-hoping we chose JMacs for dinner one evening and were surprised to walk in and find ourselves so out-of-place wearing shorts and t's toting our cameras. It's a real restaraunt so be warned- and the bottled water is $8...

“Great drinks, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

J. Macs is in a great location on the edge of the historic village of St. Simons. They have a great bar with some well-made martinis and wine by the glass accompanied by some good entertainment. The food is average and is a bit pricey, so I would suggest eating elsewhere. The "baseball steak" is pretty good. The clientele is a little stiff for the island.

“Every year we look forward to coming to J. Mac's ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

We come from Seattle and love the friendly staff and owner...can't be matched and we dine out often and my husband is a great chef and even wrote a cook book.
We are coming again soon and can't wait!
See you soon!
