This must be your first of many meals on SSI! My family and I had 3 successive meals in 2 days and all were wonderful. Service is terrific.(ask for Chris) and we will be back many times in the remaining month we are here. Thanks Palmer! Maureen

Palmers is a great place to go for any meal of the day. We've had brunch and dinner and have enjoyed every meal! In addition to excellent food, Palmers has an excellent staff who serve you with true Southern hospitality. The atmosphere is comfortably casual.

In the past I have always had great service and food but they really dropped the ball today.I am very disappointed that this happened, the owner wasn't there or I'm sure this wouldn't have happened..so I packed up...

Found this little cafe through TripAdvisor (thank you!). Doesn't look impressive from the outside, but don't let the weathered strip mall fool you. Excellent breakfast with reasonable portions (quality over quantity). Huevos, steak & eggs, blueberry pancake, and a Rueben (for our non-egg eater). Everything just right. Highly recommend l!!

Stopped in for breakfast early on Sunday, already had a wait of twenty minutes. No problem. Very well worth the wait. Each of us ordered something different, but I had the biscuits and gravy, sausage and two eggs over easy. Best breakfast sausage I've had in years. Spicy, full of flavor. The gravy had chopped sausage in it, the biscuits... More

I and 8 co-workers were on the island for a staff planning retreat. We ate breakfast here and it was amazing! The portions are large. I had an omelette stuffed with sausage, and it was outstanding. Breakfast potatoes were red-skinned potatoes - not your typical breakfast style, but very good. Service was outstanding. Can't wait to go back with my... More

We found Palmer's through Trip Adviser and we are go glad we did. There were people waiting on Saturday morning for breakfast. We didn't wait to long and it was fun to sit on the bench and people watch. Once we were seated, we ordered the special for that morning, shrimp in enchilada sauce over 2 palenta cakes..........heavenly. Palmer's is... More

I had breakfast there on 3/3/17. I had the special which was an open faced omelet with pinto beans, sausage and peppers which I don't remember the type. It was fabulous! I also tried their special breakfast sausage which was deliciously spicy. I also tried a half order of biscuits and gravy. I can't tell you how great it was.... More

The food was the best I have had on the island. My wife's​food came out cold and they immediately took care of it and we're extremely apologetic. Even my son who is a picky water loved his pancake. This is the only restaurant in st Simon's that I can't wait to revisit.
