We went there to go to Coastal Kitchen. Fantastic meal, service and worth every bit of the price. Have the Lobster Nachos. Amazing

“Great location and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Parking can be tight, but the people working here are very helpful and the restaurant is very good. This is a great place to moor your boat. Many fishing boats and sail boats stop here.

“Walk about, rent a boat, get a good meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Marina rents boats to locals and visitors alike, but their biggest draw (aside from the boaters who rent slips there) is Coastal Kitchen restaurant. Nice dining room, party room for special occasions, and a small-ish deck for casual dining overlooking the marsh and waterway.

“Gone Fishing…..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Chartered a boat with Capt. Sonny and First Mate Brian and had a great 4 hours on the water. The fish were not biting that morning but that did not stop us from trying. Capt. Sonny and Brian were great and did not even snicker when I cast into the grass (well I would have). Their boat is quite wide and very stable. I preferred when we were in the marsh area looking for trout and redfish, this requires some precision casting. They use a bobber and weight rig, not sure how I feel about it, makes precision casting a bit strange and since the fish were not biting not sure how effective it really is, probably a few days experience with it and my casting would have come back to normal. Like Florida fishing live shrimp for bait, they did not let me close enough to hook my own bait and that was a fun luxury. We spent quite some time near the shore on the ocean side looking for "triple tails" - a fish I never heard of before, they lie on the surface and you try to tempt them by casting near them but not too close with either the boat or the bait because they dive quickly. Tricky fishing. We came up empty but that is how it goes sometimes, I had a great time, a great skipper and first mate, a wonderful way to spend a few hours and see the islands from the water.

“Nice restaurant and view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

we always stop by this marina when we are traveling to Jekyll Island or St Simon as the restaurant is excellent and the outside seating provides a great view of the boat slips and the inlet. We have brought our boat here in the past and found the marina very accommodating to visitors. It is a protected harbor and easy to dock your boat regardless of size.
