It's a long family tradition to bike to Dressner's (now Palmer's) for breakfast at SSI. The tradition continues. Great blueberry pancakes and various breakfast dishes of all manner. Yesterday I had the Crab Cakes Benedict - Tres Magnifique! My only suggestion would be to invest...in some comfortable seating. Fiddler's did it and it makes a huge difference! The food and service is good. We love Palmer's. Well managed and well done!More

We ordered: ham and cheese omelette, eggs anyway, and maple bacon French toast. Their coffee was good, their bacon was amazing! The omelette was delicious, the grits (plain and cheese) were very satisfying, and their biscuits were quite good. The only underwhelming thing we ordered...was the aide of potatoes (which is why we ordered a cheese grits). I was most impressed with their prices (VERY reasonable, not even for the island—we had a bill less than $35 with three mains and coffees). I was also incredibly impressed with how well the staff worked together. That’s rare these days. This will be out go to brunch place on the island from now on!More

Read all the great reviews about this place. We went in to find people packed wall-to-wall. If you want to know why covid is having a resurgence in Georgia, stop by here. Turned around and went out.

We had a fabulous lunch today! I tried the special with grits, shrimp, two eggs and an awesome biscuit. Two people in our party ordered the ruebens with potato salad and really enjoyed them. The fourth person had a yummy omelette. My only regret is...that I was driving so I didn't get to try their Bloody Marys or mimosas. Great menu with super service. We will be back.More

Can’t go wrong with Palmer’s. My wife has been several times, while at conferences, and said we had to skip the hotel Continental Breakfast and eat at Palmer’s…didn’t have to twist my arm to hard. Not disappointed….awesome staff and the food was fantastic. Make plans...to fit this one into your dining out options. Open for breakfast and lunch only.More

We loved our breakfast there. The boys had the maple bacon French toast and the banana pudding pancakes. I had The Local entree (egg whites, a white cheese, and bacon w balsamic vinegar). It was very flavorful too. The service was wonderful and friendly too....We will definitely be back for more!More

Fantastic breakfast! Stopped by for breakfast before we headed home. It was a busy Sunday morning but the staff worked swiftly and efficiently. Food was fantastic! Highly recommend the French toast or the poached eggs with crab cakes. We will be back for sure!

Even though we've been to this island many times (my MIL lives on the mainland), we always passed on by Palmer's. The July 4 weekend was time to try places new to us: and we got to Palmer's on a Saturday during the Craft Fair...in Neptune Park. We were seated almost immediately and after hearing about the Chef's special we both ordered it: red beans and rice with grilled shrimp, two eggs on top. It was hearty and yummy! People came in and were seated quickly. Looking around everyone seemed happy and well-fed. The staff was attentive and the food quite good from what we had. We will definitely be back to try other specialties when we're back on the island.More

Was on a day trip and seen a rating on trip advisor so wanted to try out the cafe .Was told 45 minutes host had put us on a list so we waited patiently and to my dismay seen people that came after us being...seated so walked in and asked how much longer it would be and host said we are next again passed over for another two groups of people and we had enough and left .I own 3 restaurants and 1 Bistro and i have never seen any thing like this is That Southern Charm in Saint Simon Island i guess.More
