Ok. I’m a level 6 TA contributor so I read the reviews. Folks. This is fine dining but casual. Leave the coat and tie home. Slacks and button down shirts will do. And. Open table so book your reservation. Lovely drink menu on an iPad!...More

An upscale restaurant...farm to table with unusual menu....check it over first before making reservation, which you will need. Very limited entree selections...more choices for appltizers, little plates, salads, etc. The service was ok...our food was good...not great....all in all a disappointing choice for our friends.

We ate here on a recent visit and had a very pleasant experience. The crab soup was very good, the scallops excellent, and the snapper was on top of a risotto that melted in your mouth. Dinner was served with warm bread and oil and...More

Our first trip to Halyards was outstanding in every way, beginning with Emily. She is friendly, very efficient and before we left, she felt like family. Our server was also perfect in every way. Service was impeccable. The menu was wonderful, a wide variety of...More

We had a delicious meal here and fine service to celebrate my wife’s birthday 🎁. The seafood was fresh and yummy. They included a complimentary dessert 🍮 to help Patti celebrate. Nice touch!

We were in town for 4 nights, came here for dinner twice - loved it! Excellent burgers, salads, calamari. Super happy hour, nice wine list. Staff gracious to our family (kids middle and high school) - highly recommend!

We didn't actually dine here. We attended a private function held here the night before a spectacular wedding. The restaurant was closed for this event, but we enjoyed the bar (great G & Ts ...more than a few) and several delicious hors d'oeuvres...plus a LOT...More

Halyard's delivered a very good dining experience for 5 us on Friday night. Our table was ready when we arrived, were seated promptly and greeted by our server who was very knowledgeable of the menu. My daughter-in-law did not care for the cocktail she ordered...More

Halyards on St. Simons has been redefining Island Cuisine for 11 popular years. The Island's unrivaled see-and-be-seen dinner spot for locals who know and for coastal visitors who've heard that the Seared Tuna with a Plum Wine Reduction and the Prime N.Y. Strip with Soy Lime Butter will make your evening. That's not to say you should skip the Creamy Blue Crab Bisque or the nightly specials. The atmosphere is casually elegant (coozy lounge furniture in the courtyard and under the awning), the welcome warm (usually by name), the service crisp and attentive, the wine cellar vast (7 Wine Spectator Awards) and the comfortable bar hip and hopping. The menu is the brilliant handiwork of Chef/Owner Dave Snyder that changes nightly and is bold, creative and gloriously rewarding. To be sure you're pleased, Dave roams the front of the house for comments when he's not out fishing for your dinner. As you would expect at a restaurant of Halyards' caliber, reservations are a good idea.
