This was a great find. Following the advice of a local for the best restaurant. We went to the Riverside Café. Great locale and view of the harbor plus outstanding food and service. This was an unexpected treat. Will visit again.

The food was good and primarily Greek. Our group had vegans, vegetarians, and folks with no limits. The menu had many tasty choices to suit everyone. It also seemed to be the choice for tour groups so it was really extremely noisy. Even with peak busyness service was good. All in all a good place if the tour groups aren't... More

The restaurant had food that taste amazing and a yearning for more even though I was stuffed. The food was amazing and I would visit again when in Saint Marys.

We ate here over the weekend while visiting Cumberland Island National Seashore. It was the only restaurant with any sort of crowd so we decided to give them a try. We were very pleasantly surprised. We expected the average southern fried everything but found instead a restaurant with a Greek flair. We tired their chicken lemon soup which was very... More

Just a really nice spot across the street from the St Marys river with excellent views. This family-run restaurant has consistently great, food and home-made desserts at reasonable prices. The owners and staff clearly care about their reputation for quality - very warm people. As a local, this is where we go as a family to dine, especially lunch on... More

We stopped here for lunch. There are plenty of different types of items on the menu, but we had a daily special (Pork skewers) and the 3-meat sluvalaki (no idea on spelling). Both were in good quantity and excellent tasting. We had our new puppy with us and they didn't have a problem with her as long as we sat... More

Tough combination to beat. It's a family run Greek restaurant with typical Greek but food not typically made. Their recipes have been in the family for generations! Their spinach pie and crab cakes should not be missed

We stopped here back in January just before sunset. We got a seat outside on the porch, ordered and got drinks and then I started to be bothered by midges. The entire porch was full and I seemed to be the only person that was impacted. We told the waitress we were headed inside and she told us she'd find... More
