Description: Welcome to Bennie's Red Barn, the oldest privately owned restaurant on Saint Simon's Island! Nestled between beautiful live oaks, Bennie's has been a favorite of locals and tourists since 1954. No visit to the Golden Isles is complete without a visit to Bennie's! At the Red Barn you can enjoy steaks grilled to perfection over an old-fashioned open oak flame, seafood, chicken, or spaghetti in a classic, family-friendly setting. If you had visited us back in 1954, you would have enjoyed the best steak and seafood served in the Golden Isles. Some things never change! Our steaks are still cut fresh and cooked over an old-fashioned wood fire and our fresh, local seafood is brought in daily. The Club at Bennie's is a rustic, indoor and outdoor venue located just next door to the Barn. Enjoy a cocktail at our famous TREEBAR or watch the game on either of the 2 big screens. Two outdoor fireplaces and multiple heaters will keep you warm in the winter while the ice cold beer, ceiling fans, and AC will cool you in the summer. The Club is southern casual and ready for your party, but we can help you gussie it up for a more formal event. Experience an Island tradition at Bennie's Red Barn! We look forward to serving you soon.

This has become an annual event for us when we visit St. Simons. The food, especially the steak, is excellent. A big fireplace warms the dining room in the winter, making it especially delightful in the Christmas season. Service is good, though not always the most attentive. This is a popular place for the locals, so I would suggest reservations, especially if you go on the weekends.

Visiting from the North, we were hankering for Southern comfort food. We found it at Bennie’s Red Barn. The buffet, among many items, offers tender, mouth watering fried chicken; fried liver; meatloaf; roast beef cooked to perfection whether you want rare or a well-done cut; fried okra; lentils; beans; fluffy biscuits; corn bread; banana pudding; blackberry/peach crisp; pies; cakes.....can’t list everything. The service was friendly, the price reasonable, plus most of the folks were locals. We hid the jackpot.

Service was very good considering the crowd! This is a good place to go with a crowd. Food is okay, but entertainment is outstanding. The fried chicken was raved about as was the spaghetti. The fried shrimp was mass produced but okay.

Chris took awesome care of our party...the food was excellent. Fried chicken, mac n' Cheese, green beans, salad in hearty servings, the fun casual atmosphere and a roaring fire on the deck made for a wonderful evening. Our guests bragged all weekend on how much they enjoyed it. Thanks Chris!
