Pool, ping pong, corn hole, bowling and lots more to do! Had the brisket tacos and it was great! There was a band at 5pm which couldn’t have been. Worse idea. Way TOO loud, plus they were terrible! If there’s a band stay away!

My husband and I loved the food here. When we finished eating we wished we had room for more. Totally worth waiting on line for.

Evacuated South Carolina due to Hurricane Florence and made the smart choice to land in St. Simon's Island for a few days. Southern Soul Bbq was so outstanding we ate there twice in 4 days! The food is out of this world; ribs, pulled pork,...More
