St. Simons Island Eateries Your Tastebuds Will Thank You For (part 1)

Monday, June 5th, 2017

1. Georgia Sea Grill

Zack Gowen and his crew do an amazing job of creating pure deliciousness. Never had a bad bite (nor do we know of anybody else who has). Order anything. It’s all fantastic. Seriously. If you need more direction than that, go for the Wasabi Pea Encrusted Tuna. If you’re looking for a larger dish and the Fresh Catch is your game, try having it prepared Cajun Spiced. No regrets!

2. Gnat’s Landing

Great atmosphere, especially during football season. Definitely a “flip flop friendly” place to eat!  Everyone loves the bustling porch outside, it’s covered which makes it great for outdoor dining whether it’s rain or shine. If UGA is playing, then this is the place is going to be packed so be ready to cheer “Go Dawgs”! Fried Pickles are always on point, and the Gnat’s Famous Slaw Bowl is just that, it will change your life! The Fried Green Tomato Club is also a local favorite.

3. Crabdaddy’s Seafood Grill

Two words and two words only will come to mind if you ask a local about the menu: Bread. Pudding. Splurge on dessert. In fact, there’s no shame in starting with dessert and working backwards. Life is too short to not try Crabdaddy’s Bread Pudding!

4. Sandcastle Cafe

Oh, the sandwiches. The Crab Cake Sandwich is basically perfection on a Kaiser Roll. (Their breakfast buffet has everything, but more on that in our best breakfast blog here.)

5. ECHO

The Southern Club Sandwich is the tallest and the best. Pimento Cheese Hummus- Oh. My. Goodness! Did we mention Sunday Brunch? Bottomless Mimosas or an Unlimited Bloody Mary Bar… oh, and all of that at the Island’s ONLY oceanfront restaurant. Happy Hour is daily. You’re welcome. They also have 5 kinds of ice cream daily (more on satisfying your sweet tooth here).

6. Southern Soul Barbeque

Prime Rib Sandwich. The End. This gas station turned restaurant is in the heart of the Island and is the epitome of relaxed, just like the owners. Sound familiar? You may have run into them at any number of Food Festivals or music festivals or maybe saw them in Southern Living. They’ve been at the BBQ game for a decade now and are who we would call a “Home Team”. We’ve all enjoyed cheering them on as they’ve achieved tremendous success & garnered serious respect in the world of Southern BBQ.

Friday, November 15th, 2013

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):

Crabdaddys Seafood

 

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.

Halyards Restaurant St Simons Island

3) Halyards & Tramici– Whether you are in the mood for seafood or rustic Italian cuisine, executive chef and owner Dave Snyder has you covered.

Mussels to share and don’t forget about their homemade pizza.
