Oh My Gosh! For those who keep getting disappointed about shrimp and grits? Try theirs. On a scale of 1-10, they are a 15. Finally, someone knows how to make them. And not over priced as in many restaurants. Just ask for “Shrimp & Grits”...as they may not be on the menu. My next most favorite is the grilled shrimp dinner. Come hungry.More

If you’re staying in St Marys, they use DoorDash to deliver but it wasn’t working for us so we went and picked it up. Lots of food on the dinner platters. Fried shrimp were a bit salty but very tasty. The fried scallops are bay...scallops, not see scallops. Fried oysters were excellent!More

With all the great ratings, I expected something great. Blah appearance and decor. Restrooms could certainly stand some paint. My fish was good, fresh and well cooked, but no special enough to go out of the way for.

This place has the best seafood I've ever had in Georgia. I also ate at their other outlets near Jacksonville (Florida) but this cozy original outlet hit the spot just like the rest. I loved their deep fried seafood platter - can't beat it -...and their side dishes (such as their fried okra) is to die for. I'd eat here 3 times a week if I lived close by!More

They claim to have the best seafood in Georgia - NO WAY! We had late dinner and were not pleased. Catfish: OK at best. Crab bisque: lots of bisque, no crab! Oyster pita boat: Not bad. Crabcakes: Tasteless. Green beans: overcooked Clam strips: just OK....Shrimp scampi: OK at best. Maybe they were having a bad night. We'll try again.More

We continue to support our local eateries as much as possible and appreciate what they are going through. Do yourself a favor and order from their family style takeout menu while still available, Was a lot of great food at a very reasonable price! Thank...you for the 50 piece shrimp meal (ordered twice this week!) and back tomorrow for the seafood meal for 2 (wife and I enjoyed every meal so far!) All the Best to our friends at St. Mary's seafood , World Golf Village.More

My husband and I were seated in the half-full restaurant on a Monday night. (Beware, the wooden benches are just hard, uncomfortable wooden planks.) We sat for a long time with nothing but menus on the table, despite various waitstaff passing by our table again...and again. Finally one server went to the hostess to alert her. Another server came, took our order, never returned with water. I finally went to the hostess to request water. When the meals finally came, we had no silverware and my husband's sandwich did not have onion, which was listed on the menu and he specifically asked for. We had to flag down our server again to remind here we didn't have silverware and for a slice of onion, meanwhile our food was getting cold. She never returned to our table, so I got up once again and asked the bartender for silverware. The hostess delivered it, and we again requested onion. By now the hostess had many flags that our table was having problems with our server, but she never checked back to make sure we were taken care of. When we were about done eating, a small plate was delivered with a single, outer ring of an onion, about an inch thick. For a sandwich?? We wished we had our phones to take a photo, it was so laughable. To make things worse, the quality of the food was poor.More

We really enjoyed St Mary’s Seafood. Drinks, good. Salad bar was very good and their fried shrimp and oysters excellent but their fried grouper took the prize!! The hush puppies were not done but we’re replaced quickly - it happens. We’ll be back!!

Great food for the price. I ordered the lighter portion butterflied shrimp and it was enough for 2 people.
