“Overpriced for what it is”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Stayed on St. Simon's for a week and ate here one night. Main dish was decent, I had jambalaya which was about two pounds of rice and a few pieces of sausage and shrimp, not what you'd expect for $18. The waitress kept telling us how spicy it was..... switch salty for spicy and she would have nailed it. Vegetables were frozen, not fresh. My Brussels sprouts were bland even though they prepared them with bacon drippings.

Overall not bad but definitely not worth going back again. Service was good, food was okay and the place is dated.

“Dinner while at St Simons”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Trolley tour guide said that the Blackwater Grill had the best steaks in town so we went there for steak. We thought we needed a reservation but the place was not crowded at all. My wife ordered a steak and I ordered pork chops. She ordered the steak medium and it came rare. She had to send back twice to get it medium. She said it was nothing special. My pork chops were OK. Atmosphere was dated and not festive at all.

“great "New Orleans" style cooking using fresh local ingredients”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

The amply serving of Wild Tybee shrimp were terrific grilled, and the collards (spicy) and the special potato were great, as was the cornbread. Crab cakes were the "can only eat one" size. Service was attentive, atmosphere pleasant. The quail was highly recommended, but we will save that for another time. I appreciate that they offer grilled and blackened, not just fried.... And they offerred a southern vegetable plate.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

Expected more from reviews. Food was just ok, but pricy. Ordered a fettuccine dish and it was very bland. Nothing terrible with my visit, but I wouldn't go back.
