We just went for drinks during their happy hour, but the bartender was very nice and service was great! Will go for dinner next time.

Over three decades, the Frederica House has been like an old friend to me...stayed true and consistent. Yes, there are more popular, trendy places on the island. But you can't beat FH for a family gathering, a quiet place or somewhere to eat a good meal early, before the evening rush.

Slow service although they were busy. Delicious seafood (I always order a cup of crab stew when I should have ordered the bowl!) Convenient mid-island location. A little on the higher end of pricing. Good food, though, worth the extra money.

The best service perhaps on St. Simons. Never disappointed in well over 20 visits. Would love to jump in the car and drive there tonight!

I've been going here for years. Good food and service. The tables are neat and made of driftwood. The owners and managers are really friendly and make sure everyone is enjoying their meal.

Usually when I order fish fry I expect the breaking to stick to the fish, especially in an east coast fish place. I ordered flounder and the usually white fish came out incredibly dark and the breading was soggy and all over the place. I was very disappointed, coming from out of town and looking forward to a good sea... More

If you want a feel of old SSI mid island feel, and fresh shrimp, or a great steak, then pull in the parking lot! Upstairs, downstairs, or at the bar, a friendly face and the owner will visit you just to see how you are and if your experience is up to snuff. Been dining here for years, and never... More
