Service was not very good. Waited an hour for our food and it was not seasoned. My grilled shrimp were cold. Not a good impression on our fuse and definitely last visit. Two thumbs down!!

I think we may have missed out on part of the ambiance, b/c our table was just past the host(ess) stand. My sandwich was okay, but my wife really enjoyed her shrimp and grits. Our service was good.

The staff was very friendly to my family. We were there with 3 children, my husband and I. Plus, some more couples with their children joined us. Everyone was super friendly!
We enjoyed our visit.

Enjoyed our experience and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and service. Had a diverse sampling of the menu from pizza to seafood chowder to salad and sandwiches and enjoyed all of it. Service was pleasant and prompt and as a busy night.

There is a reasonable selection of coastal seafood that will satisfy the palate of most patrons, although nothing we had was particularly memorable.

We celebrated our anniversary. We had the calamari, and it was really good. We also enjoyed some of their beer and drinks, and they were delicious. The waitress was lovely, and the place was clean, bright, and beautifully styled. We had shrimp and scallops and cheesecake, and it was all really delicious. I recommend this place. You don't feel like you're on top of other people or listening to their convos, and there a fun game by the bar to play while you wait for things to come. Thanks for a lovely evening!

We dined on New Years Eve, not a busy time here on Jekyll Island. Loved our server (can’t recall her name) - she was very friendly and accommodating. The food was good but overpriced given the smallish portions. My crab cake dish could be improved by adding mango salsa and skipping the jerk sauce. Their custom martini totally missed the mark, but they were happy to swap another drink. We came back for breakfast and were quite pleased.

Most of my group got the Pasta/Salad Bar which was really good. One person got Blackened Catfish and really loved it. The desert was pretty good but alittle pricey for them. I would totally recommend this place love the decor and the atmosphere.

While the location can’t be beat, the food was so-so...service at dinner was wonderful, service at breakfast was seriously slipshod, hubby asked for sausage, got bacon. I asked for biscuit and got nothing. Waitress ndidnt get back to us until it was time for the bill. More training necessary.

Service was excellent, but the food was mediocre. Got crab cake, but it tasted like burnt grease from the pan. It came with sweet potatoes, but they tasted the same.

We also got calamari, but it was rubbery and also tasted like burnt grease.

Drinks were good. The kids got french fries with their food and the fries were good.

Nice atmosphere, and pretty view of the ocean.

Overall, it wasn’t bad, but we probably won’t return.

The soup was extremely salty. The staff didn’t seemed surprised when we told them. Our waitress was phenomenal! She was very attentive. The value was definitely not up to par with the food. There were other places on the island that had better value and 10 times better food. The decor and the building are beautiful but the food has not caught up to the ambience.

It has expansive seafood menu but my spouse eats beef and there was minimal selection. He got pizza and that was not spectacular. the place was very noisy with loud live music and the service was slow and inaccurate. Daughter-in-law got a house salad with mozzarella cheese when she ordered Greek with Feta. My crab cake was rather ordinary. My son got a redfish sandwich that he enjoyed. My Prosecco came from its own miniature bottle so it was fizzy and fresh. I recommend it with the caveat that it is convenient, lively with a local charm but if you go, have lots of patience and evaluate what you are served carefully to be sure it is accurate. When we pointed out the salad error it was corrected.

Not a lot of options on Jekyll but this place is consistent. It won’t be the best meal you’ve had but there are far worse options - call it a “safe” play.

Beer overpriced $6-8 for a pint, fried shrimp, fried oysters, and steak (filet) were the best things at our table. The seafood capellini was not good (decide if you’re intending to be a wine sauce or pesto...it shouldn’t be both).

It took 10 mins to get our drinks. My husband never got a refill of his tea. I ordered a margarita. It did not come until we were more than 1/2 done with eating. I ordered at the same time we ordered our food. It was not the correct margarita as well. However, the server assured me it was. He never apologized for the lateness of our items.

Started out rough because the hostess said she didn’t have our table because she went to the bathroom and someone else sat people there. Ended great because the manager made up for the error and really provided great customer service. Keep the manager and train the rest of the staff on customer service.

Well it was ok. Take heed of all reviews about slow service. At first they seated us fast and got first round of drinks quickly. Appetizers came out and were very good- we had Shrimp and grits lollipops which were delicious. The caprese salad was good. Then it all feel apart. We waited for quiet some time for lunch. She cAme back and placed drink order that I never got. Needed refills and made four trip before everything was correct. Finally, said something to manager to get drink after asking waitress 3 times for refill. Finally our food got to table and most was ok. I got the shrimp flatbread and it was lukewarm at best. Everyone else’s entrees were ok

Had a reservation, hostess did not greet us as we walked in. Hostess stated she had no tables to seat us, there was plenty of tables. She did not speak much and just pointed to empty tables (?) and to screen on tablet, I tried to explain our reservation and how many was in our party. She had to go grab another server, which they whispered back and fourth until I asked to speak to a manager. The manager sat us right away with no hesitation. Our server was sweet, the few times we saw her. Drinks were not made well and were different every order, drinks took 15 minutes to receive, food took about an hour and came out separately. Food was great, but will not return or recommend.

Our first day for dinner was decent but service was slow. There was a junior golf tournament in town and they weren't prepared to be busy and didn't have enough servers to cope. Breakfast the following day was decent but again, not enough servers. Slow service! We tried beer and appetizers while watching sports on Sunday but they were out of all of their mozzarella cheese balls and all of their tv's weren't working due to the bad weather. Very poor experience and won't eat there or stay at the Holiday Inn next door as a result!
