“Great, as usual”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

The food is as good as the view. The place was packed but the hostess found us a spot. The bartender knows how to make a drink and the food is first class.

“The food was delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

I will drive to St. Simons just for the food at The Rooftop at Ocean Lodge! We had a 3 course meal and everything was cooked perfect. The service was good and our food came out timely. Loved it!

“Awesome view, Awful service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We went to twice and attempted to enjoy a meal last weekend at the Rooftop. Both nights were very crowded and service was totally inadequate and made our experience miserable. There were constant errors in orders, cold and inconsistent food and intolerable waits! Even if the food had been good the service would spoil any chance of enjoyment. Go early and enjoy view ( it is truly a beautiful view)-if lucky you can get a cocktail-no guarantee- go to bar yourself as we had to do to get a bottle of wine. No wonder this was only place we could get reservations at a late date. I KNOW -fool me once........ We really did give them a chance

“Compares to a 5 star restaurant in New York City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Living near the city, we are spoiled with many 5 star restaurants. The Rooftop restaurant was recommended to me by a local who gave me a pedicure. We decided to go for cocktails, but liked it so much that we stayed for dinner that night, and came back the next. The food was exquisite; tasted delicious, portions were perfect and nicely displayed, and the service was friendly, staff seemed proud to be a part of it - all for reasonable prices. We would highly recommend it.

“Nice views, Great Food, Awsome Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We recently ate at the Rooftop at Ocean Lodge during our anniversary vacation. We had a wonderful meal outside overlooking the ocean.

We had the Mussels McDonough and the Scampi for appetizers, and the Wild Mushroom Ravioli, and the Scapmi Vegatable with Shrimp pasta for entrees. Everything was excellent.

The best thing about the Rooftop was the service. All the staff were very attentive, and the owner of the hotel walked around checking on tables. They also make a great Martini!

We highly recommend the Rooftop at the Ocean Lodge if you're on St. Simons Island.
