Seafood
Halyards on St. Simons has been redefining Island Cuisine for 20 popular years. The Island's unrivaled see-and-be-seen dinner spot for locals who know and for coastal visitors who have heard that the locally sourced seafood, will make your and evening. The atmosphere is casually elegant (cozy lounge furniture in the courtyard and under the awning), the welcome warm, the service crisp and attentive, the wine cellar vast, and the comfortable bar hip and hopping. The menu is the brilliant handiwork of Chef/Owner Dave Snyder that changes seasonally and is bold, creative and gloriously rewarding. To be sure you are pleased, Dave roams the front of the house for comments when he is not out fishing for your dinner.

Food and service was fine. The outdoor table was dark, and not in a good location, limiting our ability to enjoy the meal.

Amazing grouper with risotto. Have been dining here every year for 15 years on our drives from the Northeast to Florida. Outdoor patio was good given the virus precautions. Friendly service!

A must try for any foodies! Delicious calamari starter! The guys had HUGE pork chops which were excellent value for money but left no room for dessert! Lol
My Mother in laws catch of the day (grouper) & my salmon with poblano peppers were absolutely awesome!!

Everything we hoped and more! We dined while on vacation from the midwest and chose Halyards based on their website, menu and reviews. The service was attentive and friendly from the moment we were greeted at the door. Charlie, our waiter, was top notch. Our meals were delicious and the presentation beautiful. Be sure to save room for dessert, as the special Mexican Chocolate Tart was quite possibly the best thing we have ever eaten! Wish we lived closer so we could visit more often....

Hostess was disorganized We had a reservation and made to wait while she seated several walk ups. Despite having a reservation a week in advance, We were seated at the back part of the bar area at a hightop next to an exterior door. The shrimp and grits were terrible. My friend said her steak was delicious.

Dinner was amazing! There were 6 of us celebrating a friends birthday. We enjoyed our dinner immensely! Our appetizers were calamari, tuna poke and pork dumplings. We had a few cocktails, which were delicious. I had Ramen with beef and shrimp. This was pure enjoyment! Aaron was our waiter. He was fun, knowledgeable, courteous and really fast. Dessert was creme brûlée and chocolate mousse. Unbelievable! Halyard’s comes highly recommended!!
