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.

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!!

Always a treat to dine at Halyards. We had dinner there last week. Love this spot. Service is always great as is the food. We shared some appetizers as we had 8 people. Calamari, Potstickers and the Baked Oysters all great.
Dinner was great, several had the Grouper, one person had the Snapper and two had the pork chop, all cooked to perfection.

My husband and I have long been a fan of Halyards. Like Cheers Bar, it is a place where nearly “everybody knows your name!” Our server Carole was terrific as always and the bar men make our drinks so well, that one would like to have another!
Thanks to the team!

We were stuck at a table outside that was hot. No room fir us inside. Our waiter was very good, attentive, and knowledgeable. The blueberry salad was delicious. However, the Drum fish was overcooked.

Every time we visit the area we have to visit Halyards. We are never disappointed. First, Halyards is one of the few restaurants in the area that takes COVID-19 safety precautions seriously. The bartenders always make perfect drinks; it also has a nice, reasonably priced wine list. The atmosphere is always comfortable, the service is attentive, but not overbearing. Now, the good stuff... the food is incredible. We started by sharing the seared diver sea scallops, and the tuna poke. Both were excellent, with the scallops seared perfectly. For our main courses we had to catch of the day which was flounder in the Ramen noodle stir fry. We loved both, but, I really love the stir fry!! The dessert was the chocolate beignet, with a glazed banana and vanilla ice cream. It tasted as exceptional as it sounds. Thanks for such a great evening!

They took the covid procedure more serious than anywhere else we’ve been on the island. They took our temperature when we came in, debriefed us on protocols, had the tables actually spaced out, and the servers wore masks instead of chin guards. Made a very good meal better just by making us more comfortable.
