We visited the day after thanksgiving about 12:40 pm. We didn’t have to wait for a table. Half of my party ordered brunch Half lunch. Everyone’s food was good. My husbands omelet was the largest I’d seen anywhere! He said it was very good. The...burgers were both great! We got a patty melt and the one eyed bacon burger. The salads were fresh and the homemade dressing and croutons were a great touch. It’s not fancy but it’s good solid cafe diner/food. I have some picky eaters and everyone was satisfied here!More

While viewing the ship wreck off of St Simons Sound I decided to stop into Sandcastle Restaurant not far from the pier. It is a beautiful day so I opted to sit outside. Social distance is perfect at Sandcastle inside and out. I had a...half of a shrimp salad croissant with a side of creamed spinach. Amazing! By far the best shrimp salad I have ever had with plump Georgia shrimp that pop when you bite into them and the creamed spinach has to be homemade. Absolutely amazing!!!! A perfect beach setting.More

We’ve eaten here in years past and are pleased to report it’s as good as always. On 2 visits this week all our choices were gooood. A+ shrimp salad, ample grilled chicken club, clam chowder full of clams, Hawaiian chicken sandwich a nice change up...and a huge salmagundi salad. Thank you, sandcastle, for offering healthy side choice of fruit. And for being so nice on the phone.More

Great breakfast place that’s pet friendly. My wife both had the Country Breakfast and everything was cooked to perfection. The pancakes were very fluffy and light and the cheese grits were just the right consistency. Portions are huge. Definitely will be back.

We decided to have breakfast before we set up as vendors for an art show in the park. They are not having the buffet right now, because of COVID. They have outdoor and indoor seating. There was a mound of bacon waiting to be served...on the usual buffet line. We were told to sit anywhere and were waited on quickly. Everything was really good. The bacon was crispy perfection. The waffle was delicious. Eggs were cooked just as ordered. Oh and the hash browns were some of the best I have had in awhile. I think we will make it back this weekend.More

Small place, wouldn't want to go for dinner but for a quick lunch it was ok. I got the crab cake sandwich that was pretty good, not great. The french fries on the other hand were perfect...nice and crispy. The location is excellent, right by...the pier where you can walk off those calories.More

My boyfriend and I came here to eat brunch during our 6 year anniversary getaway at St. Simons and we took our 3 year old chihuahua with us! Everyone was so nice and welcoming to us and our dog. The food was delicious. We enjoyed...every bit of it. I loved how close we were to the pier. Their alcohol beverages has a great brunch selection.More

Sandcastle is the kind of place you search all over the world to find, then come back home and find it was right here all along. Good food. Good folks. A family-owned restaurant for over 30 years. A meal here isn't just a quick bite...of something to satisfy a day's hunger. Sandcastle feeds your soul. There may be faster places. There may be cheaper places. There may be fancier places. But on St. Simons Island or anywhere else for that matter, there is no better place. A real place. Where the locals eat.More

Before we fully set down on our chairs, the staff asked us to order. We asked for time to review the menu and less than one minute later here she came again. We ordered the burrito with cheese, potatoes, onions and spinach....we received a burrito...with cheese, potatoes, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes. Thank goodness we were not allergic to anything. We also got a burnt, crispy, tasteless, cold waffle. The $13 crab and shrimp burrito had no crab and 2 pieces of shrimp that were the most overcooked shrimp I’ve ever had in my life and was missing the ingredients that showed up in the other burrito. When we told the waitress about the burrito mix up she seemed very apathetic and did not even apologize. Later, the waitress came by to clear the table and as I was still eating and looking for more shrimp in the burrito, she held out her hand impatiently for my plate.More
