Our group had lunch here while visiting St. Simons Island. Fried, fried and more fried. Dill Pickles, Green Tomatoes, Deviled Crab and a large assortment of seafood. They have good ole American fare, friendly service and a specialty beer menu that changes weekly. The owner, Ryan Pope, came by and greeted us. Give the Vidalia Onion Pie a try and... More

This was a good lunch, I think what makes it above-average is that Gnat's serves a variety of choices we didn't see at all the other restaurants. I enjoyed their cole slaw with grilled shrimp, very tasty recipe. Others had fried green tomato sandwich, also very good, and the grilled mahi was perfect. This was casual, looks like fun place.

This was my first visit and I'll definitely go back. I was traveling with a large group and they did a great job serving us. I don't think anyone's order was messed up.

Even though Gnat's is a bar-type atmosphere, the food is definitely better than what you would find in most pubs. The variety of salads is terrific and they offer a number of healthy choices. The wings and burgers are quite good as well. Gnat's provides inside and semi outside seating, the latter better for conversation and with children and elders.... More

Was doing business on the Island and my guest and I stopped in Gnats Landing. Décor is outstanding, very nice island feel. Staff was very friendly. Food was outstanding, I have the catfish sandwich. Salads looked very good from the group next to us. Go by, have lunch, very good.

We've eaten here a few times. The pulled pork sandwich is great. Their bbq sauce is really tasty. Burgers good too. Big tv's with sports, cute island atmosphere. Only negative is the servers are the most disinterested folks I've ever seen. No smiles, no eye contact, no nothing. What's up with that??

The hotel we were staying at recommended we try this place for dinner. The restaurant is located in a nice little shopping plaza. The menu had a variety of items decently priced. Our food was just okay nothing special but it arrive very quickly. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful about places to visit while in town.

Was in town on business, and St Simons is a favorite place of mine. This is the first time I have been to this restaraunt, and decided to sit outside on the deck to enjoy the warm evening. It was later in the evening around 9, and had not eaten yet. Food I have never had grits before, so decided... More
