St. Simons Island is a food-lovers paradise. From fresh seafood to restaurants using farm-to-table ingredients, you can dine like royalty at many spots on St. Simons Island. Of course, we love ECHO, our own restaurant located here at the resort which features classic coastal cuisine and handcrafted cocktails (and beautiful ocean views!) but we love all of the dining options on St. Simons Island as well! Here are our top restaurant picks (along with some favorite menu items):
1) Crabdaddy’s Seafood– Located just a block from The King and Prince, this island landmark always serves up delicious seafood and great service! Crabdaddy’s is a favorite among resort guests and locals. Staff Pick: Try the Teriyaki Steak & Scallops for their take on “Surf & Turf.”
2) Brogen’s– If you are looking for a fun, casual place to catch the game and grab a bite to eat, Brogen’s is the place to go. They have a great selection of burgers, salads and sandwiches and their menu will not disappoint. Their prime location in the pier village area makes Brogen’s a great location to grab a bite and then do some shopping or people watching. Staff Pick: The Mushroom-Swiss Burger.
