This restaurant is closing down and will become the College of Coastal Georgia Culinary School. It will still serve limited meals (2-3 parties at a time) as a culinary school.

We ate here for lunch one day and really enjoyed it. I"m not a seafood eater and expected to be served rubber chicken, however their pecan encrusted chicken was delicious! Everyone else enjoyed their meals as well and the service was nice.

The food was delicious and there was a great variety of local seafood, but the wait was +1hr. Go early.

The food at dinner last night was excellent. The hush puppies are the best anywhere and a great way to start the meal!!! The salad was a plate FULL of salad greens, tomotoes, and large sliced cucumbers. The salad was one of the largest I've ever had as a side salad. The fried shrimp were awesome and the roasted potatoes were great too! While dining, I learned that the JIA was closing them down at the end of October to do some crazy thing with the local college's culinary arts students. The place won't have a bar, they'll feature a bakery (we don't need this on Jekyll!), and the chefs will be students. I can only imagine how inconsisent that will be!
