Halyards on St. Simons has been redefining Island Cuisine for 16 popular years. The Island's unrivaled see-and-be-seen dinner spot for locals who know and for coastal visitors who've heard that the Seared Tuna with a Plum Wine Reduction and the N.Y. Strip with Soy Lime Butter will make your evening. Don't skip the Blue Crab Bisque or the nightly specials including an array of small plates. Every night has happy hour at the 20 seat bar that is full service and first come first served. 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're pleased, Dave roams the front of the house for comments when he's not out fishing for your dinner.

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!

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.
