I had pre-ordered a buffet and it was absolutely fantastic. A lot of times you don't get the best tastes and textures on a buffet, but all 24 of my group loved the food. Shrimp & Grits were delish!

We had dinner here last week, and it was amazing! We shared a couple of starters and had a fish and a vegetarian main course - and we loved every bite of it! Partly italian-inspired, partly local, all dishes were yummie, healthy, light and fresh.

Having dinner here was a delight, and would we live any closer, we'd be regulars for sure! Their service is great, too: the young lady who took care of us was quick, gave helpful advice and did her job with great elegance. Five stars, no less!

We enjoyed dinner there on a busy Friday night. The restaurant is located at the Jekyll Island Ocean Suites hotel ( a popular spot for large groups such as wedding parties). We enjoyed red and white wine from a good selection. Our server Jay was busy but still managed to make us feel welcome. I enjoyed the wood fired cobia and my spouse enjoyed the snapper, both were delcious! We saved room for dessert and had the wood fired peach blackberry compote with vanilla ice cream and the key lime tart with chocolate drizzle. They offer small plates and wood fired pizza, as well as larger dinner entree's. The atmosphere is a little loud and we would suggest some soft music to muffle the noise. We did have an issue with the bill ( 2 charges were added our bill by mistake). Jay told us the second one would be removed from our credit card and gave us her manager's business card, if we had any issues.

We appreciate you joining us for dinner recently. It sounds like you had a very enjoyable time-nice wines, great food and attentive service. We are always happy when guests leave room for desserts.

This was some of the best brunch food we've had in a long time. Top notch service-- they didn't miss a thing. Delicious food. Truly special. And the decor is lovely. A must if visiting Jekyll.

The restaurant and hotel are still fairly new and the décor does lend itself to being by the beach. We are glad you liked it. It is nice to hear you had a wonderful dining experience and enjoyed your brunch. We hope to see you again the next time you are on Jekyll.

A great causl dinner. We shared a delicious shrimp and crab appetizer. We then each had a good sized pizza - my wife's with a house made gluten free crust. Some very inventive toppings. Service was friendly and efficient.
