Janie was our server and she was very attentive and knowledgeable. We had the salmon and a beef/shrimp stir-fry and both were excellent. Would highly recommend.

This restaurant came highly recommended to us and didn't disappoint. We ordered a variety of appetizers and sides and shared those (and didn't actually order any entrees because we had plenty of food). Crab Bisque was very good and the Brussel Sprouts were some of the best we've ever had. Clearly a number of locals frequent here for nicer meals.

We had a fabulous dinner on 2/15/17, and our server, Charles, provided excellent advice on favorite dishes. I had the beet salad as a side dish, and it was splendid. I ordered the grilled beef and shrimp dish, which was marinated in soy sauce and other seasonings. Really delicious. Everything we ordered was beautifully presented, The chef was trained in... More

Wonderful meal with excellent service. Pork chop and fillet were both great. Love the shrimp taco appetizer and wedge salad. Brussel sprouts are also wonderful!

We were given a quiet table and had impeccable service. The beet salad with mixed greens, apples and pine nuts was excellent. We also had shrimp and grits and the coconut pie which were both delicious!

My husband and I ate at Halyards at the beginning of February. It has a very nice ambience - not too casual, not too formal. The service was very good. My husband had the hanger steak, which was very good, and I had the spice-rubbed flounder, a special that evening. My dish was probably the best entree I had during... More

We were traveling from Juno Beach to Atlanta and decided to stop in St Simons Island for the night. We checked Trip Advisor for a restaurant suggestion and found great reviews for Halyards. Wow! What a gem. Busy night because it was Valentines weekend but we were treated like VIP's from the moment we walked in. From the ever gracious... More

Went to dinner last night. Had best meal in a 2 day stay. Pleasant surroundings. Somewhat quiet. Service was more than excellent-thanks Carol. The food was out of this world. Best Clam Chowder I have ever had. Fresh red snapper was to die for. The bill was very reasonable. They even accommodated my wife with a 1/2 glass of wine... More

We arrived in the area on vacation nearly a month ago. Halyards was rated #1 on the Island. We have had many fine dining experiences on St. Simon's Island but this was the best. Food was superb, obviously fresh ingredients and properly prepared. Service was also superb. Good information and advice, no pressure, well timed. Since the ratings were so... More

Description
Halyards on St. Simons has been redefining Island Cuisine for 11 popular years. The Island's unrivaled see-and-be-seen dinner spot for locals who know and for coastal visitors who've heard that the Seared Tuna with a Plum Wine Reduction and the Prime N.Y. Strip with Soy Lime Butter will make your evening. That's not to say you should skip the Creamy Blue Crab Bisque or the nightly specials. The atmosphere is casually elegant (coozy lounge furniture in the courtyard and under the awning), the welcome warm (usually by name), the service crisp and attentive, the wine cellar vast (7 Wine Spectator Awards) and the comfortable bar hip and hopping. The menu is the brilliant handiwork of Chef/Owner Dave Snyder that changes nightly and is bold, creative and gloriously rewarding. To be sure you're pleased, Dave roams the front of the house for comments when he's not out fishing for your dinner. As you would expect at a restaurant of Halyards' caliber, reservations are a good idea.
