We stopped there for lunch and the chowder was very good. The service was quick with a friendly waitress. The price was very reasonable also.

We wanted a Bloody Mary and the place looked relatively 'unbusy' so we stopped and said we were only there for drinks and wanted to sit outside. NO PROBLEM. Saw the menu and decided on breakfast the next day (btw- the Mary's were really good). Breakfast is great southern food- yummy biscuits. One of our party had the gravy to... More

After seeing an interview after hurricane Matthew past on our local paper website, I had to go and visit. The senior citizen breakfast was good with choices of menu for a low price. However, bearing in mind it was quite busy at 08.30, my pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon could have been a tad hotter. I do wish restaurants would... More

To-day we had lunch at the Sandcastle Cafe & Grill at Saint Simons Island (between Savannah and Jacksonville). The Sandcastle Cafe & Grill is located in the pretty village center and close to the sea and the pier. We very much enjoyed this restaurant, the good food and the service.

I can't say enough great things about this little restaurant in the Village area of St. Simon's Island. We went there for breakfast, to sample the items on their buffet. Normally, we avoid buffets because the food tends to be bland, mass prepared and just plain yucky. The Sandcastle's breakfast buffet was outstanding! As soon as you walk in and... More

Traditional southern buffet with sausage gravy, biscuits, bacon, 3 types of sausage, fresh fruit, etc. I swear I just ate the best blueberry muffin in my life and I'm not really a muffin fan. They do waffles, pancakes, French toast, and eggs to order. Very sweet wait staff and outdoor seating as well. Great for kids and adults alike!

You know cafe is good if they only serve Breakfast & Lunch. How else can they afford the "rent". Like the atmosphere, not over the top, just an SSI feel. Owner, Melissa is a hands on type of restauranteur - she knows what works, what people like to taste,,,,,Jack Davis knew it. One of his favorite breakfast spots. And that... More

I have only had breakfast here until this visit. Their breakfast has always been delicious and now i know their lunch is great too. A great place to sit and relax while you enjoy the ocean view (if no cars are in the way) and have a great meal.

Thank mark c
