Last night was our first visit to this trendy restaurant and we were so glad we were able to get reservations on this busy holiday weekend. Fortunately at the last minute, Angie, the smiling and friendly hostess, was able to enlarge our reservation from 4 to 6 and all six dinners were delicious.

The chef knows how to fry shrimp!! They were simply and perfectly prepared. The special of the evening, black grouper, was cooked to perfection -- ordered blackened. The sides weren't quite as good. The cheese grits weren't special and needed more seasoning and the squash medley was slightly overcooked and mushy. BUT, that having been said, the restaurant was packed and the food was coming out quickly so I'm not complaining, just commenting.

The surprise of the evening was the desert -- Apple Tort. Wow -- just wonderful. Flakey puffed pastry with sliced apples and yummy sauce served with a big dollop of Creme Fraiche. Delicious.

It appears that this is where St. Simons' beautiful people are congregating as the restaurant was full of tastefully dressed men and women. Not a good choice for children or T-shirts.

Visited the restaurant with another couple for dinner, this last weekend. The service was awful, and the food wasn't much better. After ordering a bottle of wine, we waited for over an hour for our dinners to be served. After being told there had been a mistake in the kitchen. Once the plates came up they sat for several more minutes before being brought to our table and were still wrong. No one even bothered to stop by the table and apoligize for the mix-up. Will not return.

We stayed at the ocean lodge and decided to eat on the rooftop. Beautiful views and breezes but food sucked. Short ribs fatty but dry. Chicken with pecan crust inedible.
Stay here but avoid the food from this tiny ill equipped kitchen

We arrived on a Tursday and the Rooftop had half price appetizers - so we tried their fried green tomatoes, mussels as well as the cheese plate. Everything was outstanding. The service was outstanding as well - if there is a drink you want and know what is in it, they will do their best to make it for you. The staff at the restaurant really went out of their way to make sure everyone in their restaurant was happy with whatever they ordered.
