Been to Delaney's a number of times, and just felt it was time to pay respects to one of the best restaurants anywhere.
Great service, knowledgeable on the menu and wine pairings. Best duck breast on the planet. Also, if the special happens to be the salmon on a bed of creamed corn, somebody must try it.
St. Simons has some truly great restaurants, and this is one of them.

This is a really enjoyable restaurant with excellent service. It is medium sized -- not too big and not too small, not too loud and not too quiet. We had a group of nine and were seated at a nice round table where we could all talk together or chat in groups. The wine list had some good selections. The food was very tasty and served all at once, despite our large group. The swordfish with caper sauce was delicious, the steaks large and juicy, and the appetizer specials were numerous. The local crab, the warm goat cheese salad, and the foie gras were hits. The staff were friendly and appropriately attentive. We had a really nice evening.

First visit and we'll be returning for sure....We went there on a Sat. with no reservation and they were kind enough to accommodate us in the bar area. The host and wait staff were fantastic. The waiter had 20 specials and went through the list like a pro. We LOVED everything we had. My husband had the lobster and I'm from the NE where we get live Maine Lobster all the time, but honestly, you won't be disappointed! It was sweet and perfectly cooked. I had the buffalo and it was amazing! Our appetizers were great too! If you haven't' been, GO! it's great!

Delaney's has been, over the past ten years or so, our favorite Georgia coast restaurant. When we come down for the winter it has been the first restaurant we go to and the last one, before we leave. This last time, instead of carefully prepared, delicious food and friendly, welcoming service we got not so much of each. To begin with the waiter appeared rushed and anxious to get going. We had just gotten our drinks when he appeared reciting the usual litany of specials apparently expecting us to order something. Poor form indeed! The food was a mixed bag, The appetizers were wonderful; a silky pate de foi gras and a fulsome portion of lump grab meat.
The reader should know that Delaney's always has about as many specials as there are items on the regular menu. We selected ostrich and creamed veal scaloppini from the specials, The ostrich was tough and dry and the veal dish did not work, The reader should also know that the specials are very expensive belying the reasonably priced printed menu. So to sum up, our experience at Delaney's this time was an expensive disappointment

The food is wonderful and the staff friendly and helpful. It is a favorite of mine. If you go for dinner, you will need a reservation, but none are require for lunch and it is a great time to enjoy the food, wine and leisure time with friends.
