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.
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.
we love Halyards and go everytime we are on the island?
Friendly, attentive, knowledgeable staff - great food and great bar! Always a joy to see George.
Always a treat- from warm welcome to great delicious food!
First time in Halyards with a group. Smoothly accommodated and waited upon. Very pleasant experience.
We have ALWAYS enjoyed dining here, however, this occasion was a disappointment. After 18 minutes we finally had to signal a waitress who came over and poured our water, spilling it on the table and held menu. Not acknowledging this, she took our order, said she would return with bread. Our chowder came and she was leaving when we reminded her of the bread. Two of us ordered the dumpling w/ LUMP crabmeat. There was not a smidgen of crabmeat in that dish. The next evening I took my guests to Barbara Jeans and the service, food and price was excellent. Need I say more.
A delightful dining experience from start to finish. Very good wine selections by the glass, enjoyed the she-crab soup and our seafood entrees. Plus an excellent dessert to share.
Everything worked well. The waiter was attentive, informative and friendly. The menu was excellent with a really good selection that would suit most tastes.
The food was very good, served hot ~ one of the things we find difficult to understand is that many restaurants serve food that is tepid, luke warm and has obviously been waiting for other dishes to be prepared before being served!
A good choice of wine either by the glass or bottle, prices reasonable.
We were not rushed nor were we left waiting.
Very nice evening and will certainly be returning.
Halyard's is one of our favorite places to go while we are on the island. Atmosphere is great. Food and service is always impeccable.
Excellent menu, food preparation and flavors were unique and well done. Attentive staff. A special dinning experience.
Please put back fried clams on your menu which you had as a special on occasion. Like a permanent appetizer.
The service, food and drinks were excellent. Christin was our server and she was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.
Every time we visit Sea Island, we make Halyards our place to eat if not eating at the Cloister
Food preparation etc was excellent. Really really good.
