This is just one great restaurant. We visited on a Friday evening around 5:30PM and we were seated immediately. Our server was prompt, and very friendly. Our food arrived very quickly and was absolutely delicious. We had the Oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer and it was fantastic. I had the seafood platter and my wife had the low country boil...

This by far is the noisiest restaurant I have ever eaten in. It was as load as a concert. The food was small portions and really just average. Why there are people waiting to get in is amazing.

My family loves Sara J's! I visited on a Friday night with my mother and daughter. We were seated right away and served in a timely manner. My daughter had shrimp alfredo with a salad, my mother had fried flounder with a baked potato and coke slaw, and I had crab stuffed snapper with baked potato and salad. All was... More

We made this our last evening dinner. We were able to be seating on the deck that had nigh heaters to keep us warm if needed. I decided to try for my first time the Mahi. I had asked the waitress about the pairing with a wine and she recommended an excellent choice. She said the Mahi was a favorite... More

My family spent several days in the area and had great food experiences every night EXCEPT the night we went to Sara J's. We were seated promptly and the waitress took our order promptly. My salad arrived with the wrong dressing, but no big deal. The waitress happily corrected it. She refilled our drinks several times and each time she... More

A great restaurant only a block from the Garden City pier and beach. It's located on the inlet and has great views from the deck of the marsh. The only detractor was the road noise while sitting on the back deck. We will try inside seating next time.

Good food, nice people and a lovely spot to sit and eat! I had the biggest shrimp I have ever seen and it looked like a great local gathering spot!

Sara J's was recommended to me and I found the food delicious and atmosphere charming. I enjoyed the Oysters Rockefeller and Fried Flounder. The staff was very friendly. They brought our group of 3 a free piece of pie to split which was yummy as well. I will be going back there!

Based upon a suggestion from the locals, my wife and I stopped here for dinner. The place was right along the inlet and was quite charming. Service was excellent. I selected shrimp and grits and the seafood chowder. My wife had the crab cakes. The chowder was really thick, but was very good. Although I am not a grits fan,... More
