Crab bisque was fabulous, drinks were good, the tuna tartare was ok (a little too much chip and not enough tuna). I ordered trigger fish but they were out so I got red snapper, wasn't impressed. My husband loved the ramen noodle bowl (and he is a big food critic). I mentioned in our reservation it was our first year anniversary, I thought they would've done something special for us but they didn't. Overall we had a good experience but I'm not too sure if we'll be back.
Food and service was superb. The fried chicken is amazing!
Marvelous restaurant with superior food and fabulous service.
I highly recommend to anyone visiting the Golden Isles. It is by far the
most elegant restaurant here.
Our server was so attentive and made it her goal to make our evening extra special! The scallop appetizer and fresh catch were divine and coupled with the experience made for a brilliant night out!
Second time I've had the Salmon ... hard to pick another. The Snapper fish special did not fit my taste; even though our guests thought excellent. Feta/olive cuisine is more for my appetizer taste vs dinner choice. The crab bisque my wife had was the best ever ... glad she offered a spoon or two.
Excellent food and efficient, non-intrusive waitstaff. Very impressed that they took the time to know who got each dish-I hate “auctioning” off the food at the table and they didn’t clear until everyone finished each course. Let us enjoy each course at our pace. Each dish was very fresh and perfectly prepared. Didn’t give 5 stars only because there’s always room for improvement, but we highly recommend!
Food good, service just OK, sat us where requested...not up to previous visits
Another really good meal at Halyards! We always enjoy dining out at this local stand-out and often sit at the bar for an impromptu date night -- if we can get 2 stools.
Fabulous, as always.
It never disappoints
Always consistently delicious
Excellent staff .... always friendly and attentive
Our favorite restaurant on St. Simons! The food is always fresh and delicious.
Halyards cannot be compared to any restaurant in the area! Outstanding experience!!!
Halyards never disappoints. The menu offers a wide variety of selections and the food is outstanding. Great place and either #1 or #2 in the Golden Isles.
My husband and I came to Halyards to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly and took care of our every need, even changing out our alcohol drinks when we tried a new cocktail that we didn't like. Our meals were incredible and the staff prepared a complimentary anniversary dessert for us that was absolutely incredible as well! I had a set back with my credit card being charged more than I signed for and when I called, the problem was resolved promptly. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a romantic atmosphere with a personal touch.
It was Amazing!!!!
Excellent food, excellent service, excellent wine in a superior setting with friends.
Shrimp and grits was excellent! Tuna appetizer was also excellent.
This was an evening out for my wife and I. We had heard that Halyards was the place to go, and had never experienced this restaurant. We were not disappointed, as the food was terrific and the wine list was good, but a bit expensive. The service was first rate. It was the place to go for a special night out.
Great food. Great service. Ricky did an outstanding job. Bar table was a "little loud" for a sit-down dinner with several loud bar patrons nearby but the overall experience was great. Will gladly dine here again.
The food is superb, only to be outdone by the outstanding service. A great place to enjoy a romantic dinner for two or a larger group with varied palates. Excellent, thoughtful and affordable wine selection as well.
Food and service were fantastic. Would definitely go again.
My favorite on the island. Food, service and the best bartenders. It's just as much fun to go sit at the bar and eat. This restaurant never disappoints.
Our favorite dining experience on St Simons Island. Always excellent food and service. Highly recommend to people who enjoy good food.
Food and service Great
Great, great waitress ...Abbie....wonderful service and she couldn’t have been more pleasant. The waiters we have had in the past were always good but the waitresses ...not so much. This was a pleasant surprise.
Food was good too!
A reliably good place to dine. Excellent Old Fashions. I love it when they have fried clams.
made rreservation on Opentable-was seated at hightop table right beside the bar--very noisy-customers had to walk beside our table to order drinks/pick up drinks. disappointed
Excellent food along with excellent service!!!
We went to Halyards for Valentines and had one of the best meals we’ve ever had!! We’ve ate at some of the top restaurants there are all over the US and this can compete with any one of them!!! The Scallops with Sweet potatoes purée was amazing!!!
It was Valentines Day, so there were a few extra tables set to handle the number of guests. Because of the extra guests, it was a little louder than normal, but not an issue. Our server, Jamie, treated us like we were her only table. Great service, great food, and a very nice "datenight" for two that have been married 42 years. Thanks, Halyards, Jamie, and Chef Dave and his staff!
Halyards was recommended by Debi, from the Grey Owl Inn, as one of three local restaurants on Saint Simons Island. After reviewing the menus of each restaurant, I selected Halyards based on the very discrimenent and select menu provided. The choices off the menu we chose were nothing short of outstanding, prepared perfectly and delicious to our palettes.
The buttermilk fried chicken and the salmon, especially the salmon, was the just one of the highlights of the evening. However, the Chocolate Moouse cake should be illegal.
We will definitely return to Halyards on our next visit to Saint Simons Island.
Nice casual elegant restaurant with great food and wine. I had the shrimp and grits which was uniquely served. Crab bisque was excellent. Wife enjoyed the stir fry. Look forward to returning to this restaurant.
Excellent as always, we are loyal and frequent customers
Fresh seafood always prepared well have enjoyed our multiple dining experiences
Wonderful first time experience! Terrific food
As always a most satisfying time was had by all. The service at this restaurant is the best. The chef knows how to prepare fish better than anyone around.
Halyards never disappoints! I met old and new friends for dinner while at a conference on Sea Island and we had a great dinner. Their wine list is the best on Saint Simons in my opinion and the food was wonderful.
Met friends for dinner. Was in a booth. Allowed for conversation and friendly, attentive staff was not overly intrusive.
As usual, food was superb.
we love Halyards and go everytime we are on the island?
Emily, the hostess, was excellent! We had to call due to an illness in our party. She took care of us and made us feel welcomed. She greeted us like we were friends when we arrived. The food was delicious. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to return on our next visit to the area.
