We stopped here for lunch when we arrived on St. Simons Island before checking into our B&B. Lunch was good and different.

Excellent food, good service. They have a turkey burger that is very different and very good. My wife enjoyed that as well as the soup.

The food was Ok. Very busy, noisy and crowed.. Did not care for the shrimp & grits. Seemed a local favorite.

The old King and Prince is dead! Hail to the new King and Prince! That is if you like informal, open dining with not much character and none of the tradition of the old King and Prince. That was a place for special occasions in the dining room with traditional service, the ocean view, and a quiet meal served at... More

Because of the remodel going on in the hotel we did not actually eat in the King's Tavern, we ate in a dining section set up in the lobby of the hotel. We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and decided to have a nice lunch at the The King and the Prince. We made reservations (with the restautant manager)... More

This is one of the very few restaurants on SSI where you can enjoy the most delightful ocean view, see shrimp boats trawling and catch a glimpse of Jekyll Island while you are dining. One especially nice feature is the choice of inside or outside dining-both with the same view! We had a scenic and delicious lunch of crab cakes... More

The chef had created a crab stuffed jumbo prawn that was just incredibly yummy! All of the staff were friendly and accommodating without overly "hovering" over my meal. Just what I wanted!

Our family has been coming here for over 15 years now and this place used to be really good. But I think that when economy hit the downturn in 08, they cut back on the quality of ingredients because it is not as good as it used to be. Something happened and things changed. The Friday night seafood buffet used... More

The food is decent. I have no complaints. There are better place to eat on the island, but no view like this one! Right on the ocean! Large windows, so you don't have to be right at the window to enjoy the view. They have been voted best shrimp and grits on the island. I can see why, it's a... More
