Have been coming to St. Simons Island forever. Never had eaten at Blue Water Cafe in the village. Thought it was much more of a bar with typical bar food. What a mistake. Great seafood. Great service. Great atmosphere. Will return upon every return visit....More

Great views and food. Black beans and rice very tasty. Blackened Snapper a tad spicy but excellent. She crab soup was good and creamy. Creamed spinach excellent. Homemade chips very nice. Cole slaw was just so so, tasted too sweet. Nice beer selections, no drafts.
