This is the classic diner-type restaurant (even though this one is not actually a diner), with the friendly waitresses, that every touristy town must have! I had the rosti - a bunch of hash-browns topped with a lot of ham and a lot of Swiss cheese, all browned in the oven, and a poached egg on top of that. Interesting... More

Sandcastle probably had the best food/service combo of any restaurant we tried during spring break. Excellent value- tasty shrimp sandwich. Waitresses were quick and efficient. We had 9 ppl and didn't have to wait at lunch.

Great for breakfast. Wonderful buffet plus made to order other items. The servings are huge and you cannot go away hungry. Would definitely return.

We were a little unsure of this place but seemed to be where locals hang out so went for the breakfast.Don't usually go for a breakfast buffet but hey why not. They cook your eggs to order, we tried poached and fried over easy, both very good. The buffet had a good selection and all was freshly cooked. Service was... More

The breakfast bar is - hands down - the best breakfast on Saint Simons Island for both taste and value. I never miss a chance to eat at Sandcastle - one of the reasons it earns such high marks is it is consistent - year after year after year. I have never had a bad breakfast serving at the breakfast...

My husband says they have great breakfasts. I was there for lunch. The food was ok and the 60's music was funky, but I think they should spruce up & redecorate - the ambiance was grungy.

Wife and I and another couple ate breakfast one morning on a recent visit to SSI. Pretty standard southern breakfast fare. It was good, service was quick and adequate. We would eat breakfast here again.

My husband and I went to Sandcastle with some friends for lunch recently and were not disappointed. The food was pretty good, but the drinks are what really stood out. For only about $4 a mixed drink, it's totally worth it and the drinks are strong. We showed up right before they closed in the afternoon and they were very... More

For a solid breakfast option in St. Simon's head toward the water on Mallery Street. Small patio offers outdoor seating, no need to put your name on a waiting list here, just get in line. We had a very short wait, don't be intimidated by the length of the line, they stop serving breakfast at 11 so don't be late.... More
