“Delicious food - great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is our second time at Gnats Landing and we were definetly glad we returned. The Vidalia Onion pie is a must; so much so, that we were all scrambling on our electronic devices to see if we could find a similar recipe online. We were with friends who are vegetarians and they claimed that the Veggie burger was really yummy. Everyone in our party of 9 went away completely satisfied (plus they were able to seat our big party right away over a holiday weekend - and added bonus!)

“Great "Island Time" Atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We recently dined at Gnat's Landing on St. Simons Island while on a weekend getaway. The atmosphere is casual---- very very casual--- outside on plastic chairs at what looks a lot like picnic tables. If it is hot outside, you are going to be hot eating. The seating is extremely close together and elbow to elbow. The servers seem to be zipping around but it took awhile for the food. when the food was delivered there were problems. Cole slaw was warm- ugh! The shrimp fettuccine Alfredo had approximately 6 button shrimp on the plate. Orders were wrong, etc. However, we keep coming back because you can come here in your shorts and t-shirt over your bathing suit or dressed to go out and still blend right in with the clientele. And they do get it right many times!

“Fun without the frills”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Good food and service. Liked that they had healthy options like grilled asparagus, not just fried everything. Plenty of that too though if that's what you are looking for.

“Terrific Bar Food!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I never thought that there was such a thing as good bar food until we ate here. It is rather difficult to give bar food 4 stars but I figure it is very good for bar food. Relaxed atmosphere, good place to watch sports. While it has a prominent bar, it also has a large patio and is a family friendly place.

Good vegetarian selection too!
