Service was good. We came for The Low Country Boil but skipped it because it looked overcooked. The only seafood in the boil was shrimp. The shrimp and grits were good.

Thank you for your review. Im sorry the Low Country Boil looked overcooked. I will look into this and see that our cooking time is watched more closely. I am glad to hear that you did however enjoy the Shrimp and Grits. Thank you again for your review.

Seajay's is a fun casual cafe with very good ribs and shrimp, but what I enjoyed most was their pecan pie. It was the Best.

Seajay's is an out of the way restaurant on Jekyll Island. I've been to the island many times, but had no idea it was hidden down an isolated road, right on the water. We went here on a whim. The restaurant has a lovely location with outdoor seating. We wanted to sit outside, but it was too cool for us on this particular occasion. The menu is not that extensive, but it seems they stick to the basic seafood and sandwich items and try to do that well. It makes sense. There was plenty to choose from, but we decided on the crabcake sandwich for lunch and one person in our party ate the burger. The crab cake sandwich was good and the prices were affordable. I would like to come back and try the Low Country boil buffett. The waitress was gracious and happy to discuss menu items with us as well since it was our first visit. There is nothing fancy about Seajay's but it was worth checking out on this trip.

We had a nice dinner - very friendly service, great crab soup and shrimp salad sandwich. It was too cold to sit outside but we enjoyed watching the sunset from the window!

My husband and my girls loved the Low country boil buffet. I had the crab legs and they were overcooked. Nice setting but the nats were hungry also. Waitress was very good!

Thank you for the kind words on our Low Country Boil. I apologize the crab legs were over cooked and that the gnats were out that day. We can't control the bugs, but the crab legs should not have been served over cooked. I will look into the matter to make sure proper cooking times are double checked. Thank you again for your review and we hope the rest of your visit to Jekyll Island was full of memories to remember.
