You will never be disappointed with the Fried Shrimp Dinner at Frederica House. Add a Salad with Fries & it is a "joy to the world" experience. Don't forget to add a "fresh cup of coffee" or alcoholic beverage of your choice (full bar) for good measure. The Sweet Tea is also good. ENJOY !!

Best fried shrimp on the island, only a cool baked potato kept it from 5 stars. Been there many times, always enjoyable the potato is the only shortcoming.

We enjoyed a delicious meal at the Frederica House. It has a vintage feel but we couldn't tell if it was old or just built to seem older. The service was amazing and all of us enjoyed our meals. In fast, my kids asked to go back the next night!

Arrived early and waited outside for the door to open. Seems to be a local hangout. Waitress not particularly friendly to us being tourists. I ordered shrimp salad for $15.95. Was served chicken salad. The chicken was NOT cut up. Shrimp salad arrived and had only 7 shrimp. The lettuce was not the best. One of the worst salads I... More

We took our family for dinner while visiting SSI. The menu offered quite a variety & the food was good. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful. Service was fast, but not rushed. Overall, a good pick!

A strong local menu, excellent fried food. The tempura-type batter provides a light touch and smaller servings of old standbys like fried local shrimp are welcome.

Excellent fresh seafood and in a convenient location. We have eaten there several times and always good. We only had one issue. The crab stew had to be sent back because it was only warm.

Came back for the second time in two months, and the host remembered us - a real surprise in these hurried times. The food is excellent, and service is too. We like the section "up the stairs," because it is quieter. The whole experience "felt like home." St. Simons has an abundance of restaurants, but his one has good food... More

This was by far the best dinner we had in Saint Simons Island!!! EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE!!!!!! Our waitress (Lisa I think was her name) was so nice! They are known for their seafood and burgers. I got filet and the Frederica brownie! I can't wait to eat there again next time we're in SSI!

The crab cakes are a very good choice and the daily specials are very reasonable in price. The service was excellent!! If you are looking for a great dining experience this is a great choice. If you save room for desert try their brownie a la mode!!
