We spent the morning at SAS Shoe Factory (recommended - quality shoes in EVERY size) and by 1 pm we were looking for a nearby lunch. Found this place on TA about 1.5 miles away. It is a kind of cafeteria-style place where you place your order, find a table, and they give you a buzzer to come and get... More

Food is great as usual. However, lately the wait time to receive our order has been 30-45 minutes long! The last time the manager was nice enough to personally come to our table to apologize. Today we had to walk up there to ask how much longer. The girl answered our question but not once apologized for the delay. I... More

The service was stellar for a counter-order place. We enjoyed the food too. Fried okra is one of my favorites and easy to get mushy-- theirs was better than any other I had during our visit to S.A. Decor and atmosphere were what you'd expect; my wife especially liked the gator above the hostess station.

Hadn't been to Sea Island in a few months - todays lunch was delish. Had the Shrimp Diablo Caesar Salad. The Shrimp Diablo is really spicy, as the name implies, which I love! Some folks say the house Caesar dressing is a bit on the salty side, but I find it quite good. My partner had the Lemon Pepper Fish... More

We had the coconut shrimp and the stuffed shrimp, both were excellent. The coleslaw was good but the fries were very average. The service here is very good, everyone very friendly.

After reading the reviews I decided to give Sea Island a try. I like the order up front and be seated format - staff were friendly and greeted me and explained how the process works. The stuffed shrimp was difficult to differentiate from the hush puppies that came on the platter. The deviled crab tasted of the artificial variety (something... More
