Halyards Good food and service. My wife loved her shrimp and grits. My sea scallops were good. Ambiance is nothing special. Tables are close together so not suitable for private conversations. Lots of free self parking.

Went for Happy Hour - discounted drinks, appetizers and soup. The restaurant decor was lovely. Though neither my friend nor I had ever eaten calamari with jalapeno's and / or mandarin oranges, it was excellent. Following the appetizer we both opted for the wahoo, whipped...More

Halyards on St. Simons has been redefining Island Cuisine for 11 popular years. The Island's unrivaled see-and-be-seen dinner spot for locals who know and for coastal visitors who've heard that the Seared Tuna with a Plum Wine Reduction and the Prime N.Y. Strip with Soy Lime Butter will make your evening. That's not to say you should skip the Creamy Blue Crab Bisque or the nightly specials. The atmosphere is casually elegant (coozy lounge furniture in the courtyard and under the awning), the welcome warm (usually by name), the service crisp and attentive, the wine cellar vast (7 Wine Spectator Awards) and the comfortable bar hip and hopping. The menu is the brilliant handiwork of Chef/Owner Dave Snyder that changes nightly and is bold, creative and gloriously rewarding. To be sure you're pleased, Dave roams the front of the house for comments when he's not out fishing for your dinner. As you would expect at a restaurant of Halyards' caliber, reservations are a good idea.
