Halyards was very cautious re COVID precautions, which was good to see. Our waiter was exception...knew his wines. I had seafood as a preconceived dinner item but the waiter highly recommended the double-cut pork chop! It was magnificent with the pepper jelly gastrique! My wife’s flounder was exceptional as well!
Great presentation and great food. Everyone at the table raved over the shrimp and grits which made me jealous since I didn't order that dish!
We celebrated our anniversary here. The complete staff went out of their way to make it memorable.
Food and service were great.
Great experience. My steak wasn’t quite as rare as I like it but they whisked it away and provided a perfectly cooked replacement quickly! The manager apologized and comped dessert. Delicious!
We picked a “winner “ again! While visiting Jekyll Island, we decided to try Halyards on recommendation of locals and information found on Open Table. St. Simons isn’t far away and offers variety of dining options. Easy parking is a plus,too. Arrived a little early for our 6:00 reservation. We had asked for a hi-top table which was in the bar area and very comfortable. Greeted and seated immediately and introduced to multi-tasking David at the bar. He set us up with table settings, water, and menus. Catch of the day was red snapper, so we were assured it was the freshest possible. Janice chose the blue berry salad topped with goat cheese and I the crab bisque. Whenever possible Halyards uses local sources for their offerings. Georgia grown and harvested is the order of the day. Can’t go wrong there. We both ordered the snapper. I got mine with green peas and sun dried tomato risotto. Janice optioned to grilled asparagus instead. Entrees arrived promptly after we finished our appetizers. Served hot and well prepared. Topped off our meal with flour-less chocolate torte, raspberry sorbet, and good coffee. Throughout the evening, David made sure we had everything we needed and carried on an amiable conversation while tending bar, taking orders, and delivering on every request. Was just plain entertaining to see him in action. He asked where we are from and noted that he had met several travelers from Athens recently and commented that his daughter was in school in Anderson, SC. Easy to talk with and helped to make for a delightful evening. Thanks again David. When back in the area, we will make it a point to visit Halyards again.
Loved Halyards - only restaurant we felt safe enough with Covid risk to go into during our beach vacation, and they did a great job! My grouper dish was delicious as was my husband's pork chop. The calamari was great too. Our server was wonderful - attentive, knowledgeable and kind. We had a cozy booth off to the side. And noticed on our way out that the bar looked very inviting - we'll have to try it on a next trip when no Covid around! Thoroughly appreciated the experience!
My boyfriend and I were staying at the Cloister for his birthday getaway weekend, and it was our first time to Halyards. I had previously told them it was his birthday and to make special arrangements (I.e desert). Server came up to our table with no introduction and asked what we wanted to drink. We spoke to the wine menu and no recommendations were made. Overall very poor service, no one wished him a happy birthday - not even the supposed manager - and a desert was never brought. Very unfortunate experience given the food was very delicious. Was our only one star service experience on the island.
Not a big menu, but could be because of Covid19. I have been in the past and thought it was better then. I will go back when Covid is well behind us.
If you want one of the best crab bisque you've ever put in your mouth, then this is the place. And don't scrimp on the sherry. I also had the shrimp and grits which our server told us wins awards every year. The sauce is darker and has a nice richness, The made in-house tasso ham is very flavorful. The shrimp tasted fresh and not chewy. Grits have a great hearty texture. Great entree. Carol are server was super pleasant, informative and provided great service.
The service was amazing and the food delicious. We were celebrating a birthday and it was special. Always the best place on the island to have a nice dinner.
Great food and service. They want me to type at least 50 characters, but that was all I have to say.
Our server was very pleasant; however he needed to cut his finger nails!
Great food. Great service. Felt safe with distancing and cleaning and precautions taken.
Our family enjoyed a lovely evening at Halyards! The scallop app was delicious, our entrees were amazing and the chocolate mouse dessert was a perfect ending. Great place, fine dining in a casual elegant atmosphere.
We were staying at Sea Island but decided to have 2 dinners off the resort property. Dinner at Halyard’s was our favorite dinner of the week - all 4 of us agreed! And the 2 gentlemen behind the bar that waited on us were exceptional! Would return to the area just to have dinner here again!
We eat at this restaurant every time we vacation in Sea Island. Always a great meal.
Great food and service. And the take precautions against Covid seriously.
Food delish as usual, had the salmon & grouper. Shared the fig salad & a tomato pie (awesome). Seating was widely spaced, only every other table in use. No music so you didn't have to talk loudly. All staff wearing masks. Felt totally safe. Great service as always.
Delicious! Very professional!!
Great attentive service, delicious food, quiet atmosphere.
Incredible service and exceptional food. Patio was lovely!
It was my 60th birthday. I made the reservation a couple of weeks ahead of time and indicated that we were celebrating a birthday. We were stuck in a back corner and had the worst service I have ever experienced on the island. The waiter came to the table and said “drinks?” Nothing like “ how are y’all doing tonight?” He totally acted as if he was doing us a favor to wait on us. There was never a mention of a birthday. They could not bother to give us good service so we can not be bothered to ever go back to Halyard’s !
Our dining experience at Halyards’ was wonderful! The service, ambience, and food were all superb! Our adult kids sat outside and we parents sat inside. Everyone was so accommodating, and we all had a wonderful time!
Amazing food and service. The tuna poke and salmon were delicious.
Halyard's is an Island mainstay. Whether celebrating an important event or just rolling up to the bar for a casual dinner, it's one of our favorites.
Delicious food prepared uniquely! Loved everything we had!
We were very satisfied with every aspect of our evening there. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
Aaron Bell made us feel very welcome since it was our first time at Halyard’s. He was helpful and very personable in not only making food choices but in places to see around St Simon. Would go again and request him.
Everything was fresh and yummy. The wine list is great!
Anniversary. Table next to us was recognized for their anniversary but we were not. Ordered dessert and it was not placed in bag. Had to return to get it. Overall great dinner and ambiance.
We brought family, visiting from Atlanta, they were still raving about their meal the next day! Always excellent service, too!
Interesting menu choices that didn’t disappoint.
Would definitely come back again when in the area.
Bonus: Very attentive to COVID precautions, felt completely safe eating here.
Our server Michael was fantastic and made our experience a real pleasure. I particularly liked the blueberry salad!
Great food, great vibes! If you’re staying in the area you need to take a night to eat at Halyards
Great food and our waiter was very attentive. My husband wanted grilled shrimp and not one of the entrees and the chef made his plate just as he asked.
Check in was a little uncomfortable (stading directly in sun wating for temperature to be taken), but the extra safety measure was appreciated. Food and presentation were nothing short of amazing.
Absolutely outstanding in every aspect. The precautions taken were excellent yet not overly intrusive. Our server was a delight. The courses each impressed in taste and presentation. They have really upped their game. Wonderful evening.
The staff was friendly and super accommodating. Food and drink were delicious and timely. Had a lovely night celebrating 5 years spent together. Thank you!
All great but we split a 16 oz ribeye and it was filled with grissel and we only ate a small portion.
Otherwise a great evening with my family.
