St. Simons Island Eateries Your Tastebuds Will Thank You For (part 2)

7. Palm Coast Coffee, Cafe & Pub

Coffee by day. Music & brews by night. The Meza Plate has all the goodness (including spanikopita, tzatziki, tabouleh + more). Opa! Not feeling that level of Greek? Then you must order a wrap! We highly recommend the Thai Wrap the melding of Asian flavors in your mouth is to die for.

8. Del Sur Artisan Eats

“Rustic Argentinian/Italian artisan cuisine.” Where else can you order Roasted Lamb Empanadas as an appetizer?  Or dive straight into the main course with their Four Hour Lamb Shank (Ossobucco Style) on a Bed of Creamy Polenta. Mmmmm. You absolutely have to listen to their pairing suggestions, they’re talented at choosing the perfect glass of wine to complement any dish!

9. Sal’s Neighborhood Pizzeria

He began as a boxer in New Jersey and he’s broken world records, but it’s the food that will knock you out! Did we mention he can throw the dough? Yeah, total pro. Pizza is obviously delicious, but we also recommend trying the Salzones- only share if you aren’t into leftovers.

10. Delaney’s Bistro and Bar

This family business has been around for over 20 years, and as long as the locals have say in it, they’ll be here at least another 20! If you’re there for lunch, make a point to try the Tasso Chicken. (Fun fact, this family also owns Cafe Frederica, which is featured on our breakfast favorites blog here.)

11. Bubba Garcia’s

No list is complete without Mexican food. Ever. Personal favorites here include the chimichanga, fish tacos, and of course a margarita to wash it all down.

St. Simons Island Restaurant Guide – Part 2

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

In Part 1, our restaurant guide highlighted some popular local restaurants. (Click here to visit Part 1). In Part 2, learn about more restaurants that we recommend you visit while on our island!


Palmers Village Cafe


Palmer’s Village Cafe– This quaint cafe is located in the heart of the pier village. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with a unique twist on traditional comfort food.We love that their menu highlights fresh, local produce. Their location makes it the perfect place to grab a bite after shopping in the village. Staff Pick: Try a taste of the coast with their Surf Squared breakfast. Poached eggs over a crab cake served with a roasted red pepper grit cake.





Sals Neighborhood Pizzeria 


Sal’s Neighborhood Pizzeria– Sal’s is owned and operated by Sal Cenicola, a former boxer from New Jersey who makes the best pizza south of Jersey! If you are looking for an Italian restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and delicious food, Sal’s is the place. Many islanders who are originally from the north rely on Sal when they want an authentic pizza. So, naturally our staff pick is….pizza!






Delaney's Bistro 

Delaney’s Bistro– Delaney’s has been an island staple for many years and are located just a 10 minute drive from the resort. They are open for lunch and dinner and their menu offers something for every palate-from duck breast and lamb to fresh scallops and crab cakes. The restaurant is perfect for a quiet meal with good friends. Staff Pick- Their tasso chicken over linguine is delicious. Also, if they offer scallops as one of their specials, we highly recommend you try it!



Southern Soul Barbeque




Southern Soul Barbeque– Although Southern Soul has been around for a few years, they have quickly become a tradition for both locals and visitors. Their succulent BBQ and delectable sides have left us coming back for more, time and time again. We dare anyone to drive by their smoker and NOT stop! Dine outside on one of their picnic tables or, call ahead and take your meal to the beach! Staff Pick- Their ribs and brisket are out of this world and you cannot leave the island without trying their fried green beans!


Rx for a Great Escape – St. Simons Island

Monday, July 15th, 2013

A vacation means different things to different people. Some folks relax by taking on new sports, immersing themselves in foreign cultures or learning the history of exotic new destinations. For others, nothing relaxes like the comfort of the familiar. They dream of baking in the sun poolside with nothing on the “to do” list but applying sunscreen. Perhaps the only thing that’s universal about every vacation is that it should be an escape from the everyday routine, an experience that recharges one’s batteries. To help rate destinations on such a scale, I’ve developed something I call the “Rx” factor, for the power to help a vacationer relax. It’s my personal scale for rating the relaxation quotient of a vacation destination – a place’s power to meet a vacationer’s needs.

One of my favorite spots, hands down, is St. Simons Island, Georgia. This quaint island is part of the “Golden Isles” of the Georgia Coast,

where every visitor can feel instantly part of a time-honored summer tradition. And its “Rx” factor is through the roof, with these key ingredients making St. Simon’s a perfect place to relax.

A Slower, Timeless Pace

Nobody is in much of a hurry on St. Simons. At top island spots like the King and Prince Resort, for instance, the front desk staff works efficiently. But they’ll also take the time to suggest a favorite spot to watch the sunset. The entire island has a rhythm of its own, a pace that instantly eases the tension out of work-weary shoulders and connects mind and spirit with the gentle sounds of the ocean. It’s just as perfect for bike riding as it is for strolling. Bring or rent bikes and see for yourself.

Safe Atmosphere

By and large, this is a place you and your kids can walk the streets after dark in complete confidence. Like all vacation spots, it’s important to keep your valuables secured. But this is a pedestrian-friendly island, with plenty of foot traffic along the streets and beside the waterfront in the charming downtown area. A dose of common sense will keep you out of trouble and enjoying your vacation.

Pleasant, Colorful Locals

Shopkeepers, waitresses and locals can make or break a vacation town. St. Simons Island has plenty of townspeople who can jawbone for hours and sincerely welcome newcomers to the wonderful place they call home. They’ve got opinions and they don’t mind sharing. If you want an idea about anything from a great spot to fish to the best place to impress a date, you’re sure to find an answer.

Nourishment for the Soul

For our family, great food at the beach is a non-negotiable. St. Simons doesn’t disappoint. Charming local haunts like Iguana’s serve fresh-from-the-surf seafood. Sal’s Neighborhood Pizzeria offers a bit of New York, with delectable pizza, sandwiches, salads and Italian specialties all made with care and served in a bustling Little Italy atmosphere with colorful commentary by Sal, a former boxing wunderkind. And for a special treat, the King’s Tavern restaurant at the celebrated King and Prince Resort presents fresh catch of the day seafood dishes that you’ll remember long after you’ve shaken the sand out of your shoes back home.
