Without question,the hamburger and fries are the best on St. Simons Island. The salads are also top notch as is the chili.

Last evening my wife and decided to eat at Brogan's North on Frederica Road. Many of our friends and neighbors were seated around us. Now this is a very friendly neighborhood sports bar and grill! The sports channel and Poker Championships were on the big screened TVs and the drinks were served promptly and COLD. The two orders came a little slower than usual (about 30 minutes after ordering) but the veggie pizza was good and the cheeseburger was cooked to perfection (medium rare). The onion rings were served hot but somehow the flavor of the onion was lost. Ate two rings, left four on the plate. They cater to solos, couples, friends and families. You always feel comfortable and welcomed when you come through their doors. The outdoor dining is wonderful in the spring and fall and some winter months. My wife says it reminds her of the small cafes in Spain or Italy. Next time, NO fried anything! Just those great burgers!

Being a commercial pilot and visiting many different towns, I try to frequent restaurants that locals visit because if the locals go there-there must be something to the restaurant. Full parking lots are a good key to good places to put your feet underneath a table. Brogen's North on Saint Simons Island, GA is one of those kinds of places and nostalgically, it reminds me a lot of the Cheers show of yesteryear. It not has great food, it has an atmosphere that makes you feel like one of the family. Now that's my kind of place and I would recommend it to you for your family.

While I have been eating at Brogen's for over 28 years and to this day the BEST sandwich they have is the Grilled Chicken Swiss! There is nothing more to say until you give it a try!

Just to clarify, because it seems like maybe some of the reviewers were confused about the location (and the photo is incorrect), this is not the Brogan's by the pier. This one is in a small strip mall in the center of the island. There are a few tables for outside seating, but we needed to cool off so we went inside. It seemed a little like a cave...it is dark and stuffy. The waiter was friendly, quick and competent, and the food was decent pub fare. There is something for everyone on the menu...sandwiches, seafood, pizza, etc. but just isn't remarkable in any way. They do have a big TV over the bar, in case you want to catch a game.
