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.

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.

Food is creative yet simple. It’s fresh perfectly seasoned and delicious. The fish is incredible. Cooked to perfection accompanied with shaved Brussel Sprouts and Parmesan with a nut I can’t place. Service was attentive not rushed.

Menu is incredible. I eat here multiple times every time I visit. Great job George and Dave et. al.
