Seafood
Located just north of the Demere Rd. round-a-bout in Redfern Village, in the heart of St. Simons Island, we offer a full bar, a wide selection of appetizers and seafood with an extensive raw bar and feature a pristine marsh view. Oyster offerings rotate from aquacultures up & down the East Coast, and are available raw or steamed as well as stuffed & baked. Meat eaters fear not! We offer a Filet, NY Strip and Pork Ribeye that will compete with any steakhouse in the area.

Enjoy cocktails & appetizers and enjoy the marsh view from the lounge on our back porch!

Notable appetizers include the Raw Oysters (of course!), Old Bay Chicken Wings, Drunken Clams and Southern Crab Dip. You can also, graze on a Double Cheeseburger, Po' Boy or Fish Tacos.

For dinner, Chef Ben's Special of the Day usually takes top billing, but the Seared Scallops with Tasso Cream and Shrimp & Grits with Red Eye Gravy are popular too. However, the Seared Pork Ribeye with Guajillo Butter is an unsuspecting hit!

    The food was good ~~ but the service was hiccupy ~ felt like maybe the restaurant had not been open long. The chilled oysters and crab came out after the hot meal. The biggest thing though is that staff was on their phones most of the time. So dishes weren’t cleared etc. would eat here again, but for a lunch date.

    Friendly waiter but slow service. Had to go to bar to get first drinks. Got ketchup instead of cocktail sauce. Waiter never came back so just did without. Third time trying this restaurant. Issues each time. Probably won’t go back.

    Went on Mother's Day and waited for 30 min. for our beverages. Server said they were out of glasses and the bar was backed up. No fruit for the sides because they ran out?! Once we got our drinks the glasses were dirty.

    I ordered the catch of the day seared but it was presented blackened. The server offered to redo it but we had already waited some time as it was. The server did not write anything down so I am not surprised the order was incorrect. Menu is very limited, mostly bar food.

    My wife and I live on Saint Simons Island. We are always looking for a new favorite restaurant. WIO is it. What a wonderful addition to the island. They did a great job remodeling the space. Fun atmosphere, great menu and super place to take family and friends. Highly recommend.

    Atrocious! There were few customers. Our server rarely checked in and both forgot food and overcharged us (told him to leave bread off fish sandwich order so he charged me another $10 for platter but gave me sandwich sides). Then proceeded to argue about it. Never ever going back or to any of their affiliated restaurants again!

    The food was great! Seafood was fresh and had lots of flavor. It’s a beautiful restaurant overlooking the marsh. The iced tea is AWFUL!! It’s from a fountain. Bless their heart. Any good southerner knows you don’t serve tea from a fountain. Cut costs and make it in house. The server was friendly but forgetful. It took forever to get water to drink. I would give them another shot as the food was delicious and they do a nice job of accommodating large parties. Hopefully the service will improve and the will serve real iced tea.

    The restaurant appeared understaffed during our visit. The servers seemed overwhelmed and, due to a communication disconnect, we sat for 30 min before getting first service. Also, the TVs were all playing bare-knuckle fights, which was a rather bloody and violent backdrop for having a lot of kids in the house. The overwhelmed staff were unable to change the channel. That all said, the food was generally very good. We had one bad oyster, but always a risk when going with raw. Tuna dish was great.

    We come down to St. Simons several times a year and frequently make Wolf Island Oyster Company a part of our eating out schedule. We Love the laid back atmosphere combined with good food and experience . Last night I had the Caesar Salad with Salmon and my wife had the Pasta with Shrimp. I’d recommend both. Actually, I’d recommend anything off the menu as I feel we’ve sampled most everything. Service is attentive without being overbearing. When the weather warms up, they have great outdoor dining as well.

    We loved eating lunch here. The deck is fantastic and food was great. We started with Tuna nachos and all loved them. It is a small portion ( there were 5 of us) but would definitely recommend them. Then had the burger which was really good. We will return when we are in the area next.

    Had an amazing evening with outstanding food and service by Lorna. She is a true gem and made our experience unforgettable! Oysters were delicious and fresh and shrimp and grits; as well as Tuna and risotto were one of the best we’ve ever tasted. Don’t look any further for a fabulous dinner and experience! Tell Lorna the fun couple from AZ says hi!!

    All of the food was amazing and very reasonable prices considering the quality. We had the low country oysters, shrimp and grits, and fish tacos. Everything was really good but the low country oysters were probably our favorite. Service and atmosphere were both great as well. Overall, this place was better than expected and we would highly recommend it if you’re looking for good food and value.
