Based upon the good TripAdvisor reviews I was expecting more from our dining experience. Just so you know my wife and I are not food snobs and keep an open mind when it comes to food and service.
The restaurant was busy, but we were seated in a few minutes. We were warmly greeted and given our menus. My wife ordered the Shrimp Creole and I ordered the Shrimp and Grits with a side of Fried Okra. We both had our shrimp grilled.
The Shrimp Creole was bland tasting and any sauce was sucked up by the rice. The shrimp themselves were grilled, tasty and cooked appropriately.
The Shrimp and grits were a disappointment. The order was to contain mushrooms, leeks, ham, roasted red pepper cream sauce over cheese grits. All I saw was one mushroom and a white cream sauce over the grits. The sauce was plain and reminded me of white gravy that is served with chicken fried steak. The grits underneath were good.
The worst part of the meal was the fried okra. Usually you would get slices or chucks of okra with a moist center and fried with a breading of some kind. The pieces were squished flat and the first bite I had to spit out because it was all fibrous and not eatable like a hard stem. I tried another piece and it was the same way. I asked the waitress to take it away and ordered cream corm instead which was good.
The best deal is that you can order a bottle of a good wine for $10.00 and have it with your dinner or take it to go with you.
No problems with the service or the atmosphere or cleanliness of this place. Maybe we hit it on a bad night? Next time in Jekyll, may try again, because of the other good reviews.
