Good Meal

We recently dined at Black Water Grill on a Friday night. We saw the restaurant featured on Triple D so we decided to give it a try. Their claim to fame is the Frogmore stew and they even have a to go version. We made a reservation but once we arrived they could not find the reservation... read more

First time eating here and it definitely will not be the last! This was absolutely divine. If you like Cajun and a little something different this is the place to go. Not sure I have ever had a better meal on the island. The pork chop is a must, by far the best I have ever tasted. All the sides... More

This is a great spot to take family or a relaxed night out. I call it Southern Comfort food cooking. Terrific Brunswick Stew, and Jambalaya. If you like Cajun food this is the spot for you. Since I love spicy food I always tell the server and they dash up the heat for me. Super friendly staff and relaxed family... More

If you like Cajun cooking, you are in for a treat. The Jambalaya and the Cajun Pasta are delicious. Although both of this dishes are spicey so you might want to check with the server about that. They have delicious food and they give you large portions. I have never been able to eat there without taking something home because... More

Nice place, extremely friendly staff. Waiter was very knowledgeable and personable. Food was good to good+. My grouper was good, my wife's shrimp (cooked three different ways) was very good. I just can't decide if this place is trying to be higher end and not quite there, or mid range and slightly overpriced for that. But overall a very good... More

Best shrimp and grits ever (and we have tried in many places). Also an appetizer called the Blackwater Sundae is incredible. Brunswick stew, Cajun spiced coleslaw and homemade cornbread in a sundae glass.

My family selected this restaurant after calling around a month ahead of Thanksgiving to see what would be open. Slim pickings. We are so glad we selected this restaurant. We had a choice of traditional and non-traditional menu items-- all reasonably priced. I selected the turkey and ham option and traditional sides, all made with a twist. Our only regret... More

If your looking for authentic New Orleans style eats this is the place! We had the Jambalaya and it was enough for two people! Service was outstanding and the staff were very friendly!

I will definitely return to Blackwater Grill for this Brunswick Stew. It was the best I have ever tasted! The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was great. Looking forward to our next trip to St. Simons.
