Description: Welcome to Bennie's Red Barn, the oldest privately owned restaurant on Saint Simon's Island! Nestled between beautiful live oaks, Bennie's has been a favorite of locals and tourists since 1954. No visit to the Golden Isles is complete without a visit to Bennie's! At the Red Barn you can enjoy steaks grilled to perfection over an old-fashioned open oak flame, seafood, chicken, or spaghetti in a classic, family-friendly setting. If you had visited us back in 1954, you would have enjoyed the best steak and seafood served in the Golden Isles. Some things never change! Our steaks are still cut fresh and cooked over an old-fashioned wood fire and our fresh, local seafood is brought in daily. The Club at Bennie's is a rustic, indoor and outdoor venue located just next door to the Barn. Enjoy a cocktail at our famous TREEBAR or watch the game on either of the 2 big screens. Two outdoor fireplaces and multiple heaters will keep you warm in the winter while the ice cold beer, ceiling fans, and AC will cool you in the summer. The Club is southern casual and ready for your party, but we can help you gussie it up for a more formal event. Experience an Island tradition at Bennie's Red Barn! We look forward to serving you soon.

The atomsphere and staff are very unique. The food was delicious. The menu is verbal so it is hard to decide what to order know what you are paying.

“Crazy Good Ribeye !!!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed the best steak we can remember. A little sticker shock at first but now we know why. Men were sharply dressed and remarkably courteous. Great ambiance, pleasant music. We'll be back here again.

“Nice place”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Food was good. Tea was way too sweet. Had the seafood platter. Portions were kinda small in comparrison. Scallops were small as were the shrimp. The crab dish they have on their menu is good.

“I've been to Bennie's many times”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

After the novelty wears off itds just an average restaurant. Two in our party had steaks, their specialty, and found them to be OK. Two of us had fish and same response. We might go back but there are more interesting options on the islands.
