This is our "go to" restaurant in St. Simon's. They have the most wonderful "She Crab Soup" --- we ALWAYS order that.

We ate here and the food was good but average. I had eaten at a Barbara Jeans in Beaufort before but this was not as good. It seems to be a popular place and location was convenient.

I loved the fried chicken with gravy, okra, and onion rings but the crab soup of the day was average. Our friends felt the same way. If your hungry you can find some soul food for sure but don’t expect the best meal you ever...More

I don't believe they take reservations. Just get your name on the list and enjoy shopping at the shops at the pier while you wait!
