Best dining experience on Jekyll Island, a definite must! Excellent food and service. Squash casserole was the best I have ever had!

Good food and drink. Best roll I ever ate. Had the stuffed flounder. Was average. Owner came by to speak with everyone. Nice touch. When I left restaurant, fell out front due to uneven sidewalk and hurt myself. OUCH.

The shrimp and grits are my favorite. The rolls are deep fried, beignets I think they're called. Tasty. The bread pudding is a custard base and is quite remarkable.

Very well run restaurant. The food is reasonable and delicious. The flounder with crabmeat is fantastic and the fried shrimp is yummy. Don't miss the squash casserole and the fried okra.
