I had the shrimp and cheesy grits, hubs had the ribeye and lobster and both had a salad. Everything was VERY good - my only critique would be to fancy up the salad slightly, but still good. Comfortably dined on the outside covered deck overlooking...the marsh and service was very good. Would def go back.More

We had fried shrimp dinners. We ate outside bugs a little to much.next time will eat indoors. A little pricey 50 with tip and no alchohol food is a little better than average

Ordered the shrimp and scallops. Right out of the freezer. For the price very disappointed. The oyster roc was nasty also tiny hardly any thing there

First I want to say this restaurant felt very safe during the pandemic. They don't let you stay in the lobby to wait for a table and they had signs posted and hand sanitizer. It took a long time before a waitress visited our table...but once she came by, everything from them on went smoothly. I was disappointed that they didn't have a drink menu - all beachy places should! The only other item I wasn't crazy about was the crab soup. It was a little too thick and had potatoes (which makes it a chowder) and it wasn't served piping hot. The rest of our meal - seafood platters, scallops, etc. were all very flavorful though. There was a seafood casserole we wanted to try but it wasn't available that day. We will plan to visit again.More

We had a delightful dinner on the patio. The food was delicious, the attentiveness of the staff was refreshing and they all wore masks and worked hard at keeping it clean and safe.

We have been eating at Sarah J's for the past 10 years during our visits to Garden City. The quality and quantity of our meals has steadily decreased to a point we starting looking for a new seafood restaurant.

I ordered a Lowcountry Boil for curbside pickup. When I picked it up and brought it home, I found only 6 shrimp, 6 potatoes, a few pieces of sausage and 2 pieces of corn. All of it was overcooked and almost inedible. For $24.95 I...felt extremely disappointed to say the least. I’ve eaten there a number of times in the past when visiting here at the beach but this might be my last.More

Wife and I both had the Sara J's special. Frankly there was nothing special about it. Hushpuppies were a good appetizer but no honey butter was included like every other seafood restaurant in the world. The Sara J's special is a combination of fried shrimp,...fish, oysters, scallops and deviled crab. Food was definitely not worth $28 per plate. I'd put it along the lines of a $10 plate from Long John Silvers or Caprain D's. Pina Colada was very weak and I ordered 2 beers. One was brought to me in a can and one was in a bottle. Not a huge deal but for an $80 dinner for 2, I would expect a little rum in my wife's mixed drink and bring me a bottle beer please.More

First time here and our experience was very favorable, with food items we selected being very well made. Beautiful view!

To be local, Sara J’s has the best food and service available! Upon arriving, we were seated immediately and served fresh hush puppies. Our server was friendly all around! My fried shrimp were cooked perfectly with the perfect amount of breading. The fries had a...great seasoned flavor and the cheese grits were amazing! The only thing I wish we had gotten was homemade tartar sauce. It’s so easy to make and well worth the homemade over store bought. Wish I could eat here more often.More

I believe it was around $20 per person. 4 of us were $100 that was with 3 alcoholic drinks.
