Had lunch there today - we will never return! The waitress paid attention only to the locals and was rude. The crab "bisque" was more like salty potato soup with extra salt and light on flavor and crab. No apology from the waitress when I returned it, but she didn't charge me. The blackened fish had curry and other Indian spices - never seen that before, and it was not pleasant. No opportunity to complain, or get drink refills, as the waitress never asked how we were doing, etc. The 20% tip (said to be their policy for 5+ but not stated on the menu) was the final straw. When I complained about it the gentleman working there just turned his back on me. This was a real surprise because I had been there several times for dinners that were good, with good service - but I think the difference was our host (for a seminar) had rented out the entire restaurant.
Great dinner there. We had bacon wrapped shrimp and lump crab meat as appetizers. Fantastic. We followed that with duck breast as one entree and scallops with a ponzu sauce for another. Incredible. Dessert was a disappointing chocolate pecan pie slice served with ice cream. Very dry. Good wine list. Waiter steered us to good affordable bottle. It was expensive but worth it. Some of the best food on the island. 1/2010
I went with my parents to Delaney's last night on our first night in st. simons. We had late reservations so I was very tired but the meal was still excellent. I got there and ordered an ameretto sour to drink. The bartender was nice and the drink was excellent. We sat at our table and the waiter came by. He was very knowledgeable. They had a ton of specials but We all ordered something off the menu. I ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer and the Shrimp provencal(the shrimp were huge and like 7 in the pasta) for entree. Mom ordered the eggplant for appetizer and the ny strip for entree. Dad had the baked goat cheese and Filet Diane. Everything was yummy. Dad said he could have eaten a full plate of the goat cheese for his meal(it comes with 2 medallions). The entrees also come with a mixed green salad. For dessert dad and I shared the raspberry white chocolate cheesecake. Mom had the peach and blueberry crisp. She said the chefs pies are much better than the crisps.

I was referred here by a friend while visiting St Simons Island. Yes, there are some incredible restaurants on the island but this one really fit the bill. There are times when you just want a quiet, tucked out of the way place. Simple with good authentic food. Chili Peppers fit the bill. This is a tiny Mexican restaurant that is as authentic as they come. The owner Mayte is from Mexico. She is an incredible cook in her own right and had developed a menu of totally authentic food. The front of the building features a take out that is quite busy. Around the side is a door into a small rear dining room. The place is clean, cozy, and looks exactly like you expect a small Mexican restaurant to look. The staff was friendly, and the food was really delicious. Please note, there is no liquor license. But there is a liquor store right across the parking lot. They had no problem allowing us to BYOB. Nice comfy place for an authentic dinner!
Our first time and we're pretty happy with our meal. The cheese dip w/ chorizo was good. Also ordered the carne asada and shrimp tacos. The carne asada was excellent. The hot sauce was definitely super spicy!!
We were looking forward to a small, casual and quaint Mexican dining experience when we arrived. The margaritas were good and the cheese dip with chorizo and guacamole were very good. However, they we over whelmed with a larger table and we waited longer than we should have for our entrees. When they arrived, they didn't taste like Mexican food at all - rather, the shrimp tacos tasted eerily similar to the Thai restaurant next door. Do they share the same kitchen?? Apps and drinks were good - not crazy about the meal.

Favorite discovery on the island! We've enjoyed both lunch and dinner here! The ingredients are fresh and delectable! I've gotten the veggie fajita twice, and it was incredible! Great for families, couples, groups of friends, and they even have a bar area of you are solo.
My party of 4 including my daughter and he boyfriend were seated and it took 1 hour for food to arrive. We complained to the manager who made excuses about a large table ahead of us, we suggested he comp us an order of margaritas and he refused and apologized about the large table. If good service is important to you, avoid the place and go to nachos nearby where the manager cares about service and food is truly excellent every time
Dont waste your money here. This is NOT a good Mexican place. Move on over to Bubba Garcia's. Service was good though. I will say our server was super sweet but got most of our orders wrong. The food just was NOT good. I felt like they got frozen food from a grocery store and served it as fresh.

Great Southern BBQ! This is where it's at guys. You will not be disappointed at all. Had pulled pork, beans, and slaw. Sauces where more on the sweet side. However this is not a deal breaker. Good food.
UPDATE: Burgers are good! Bar is chill spot to hang out and drink late at night. Interesting atmosphere. Mixed feelings. Nice employees Overpriced, decent at best, nothing special, pork doesn't taste smoked, bbq sauce tastes like KC Master piece, out of mac n cheese....etc. paid $30 for 3 sandwiches, 2 sides and 1 drink. Sorry, but Southern Soul was amazing....
Much respect lost for Alton Brown.....this place has either suffered an epic loss in quality or you seriously have to question his mental well being! Pork, brisket and chicken all consistently overlooked and incredibly dry. The Mac and cheese was simply Velveta and noodles. Packets of fake lemon juice for the tea. Ice machine with no ice....and most off-putting was that the dining area was overrun with flies!

The atmosphere is of a rustic and warm kind which draws a certain southern charm. We were greeted by the waitress who wasted no time in bringing us some water and gave us ample time to look the menu over. I ordered a crab cake appetizer and was very pleased. The cake had been cooked fresh and was at a perfect temperature when it reached the table. The house salad was simple, with mainly ice burg lettuce with few vegetables, so I would recommend a different salad to accompany a meal. I had the catfish special with cheese grits and the vegetable of the day. The fish was fried to a golden brown and really tasty. The cheese grits were some of the best I ever had. As for the vegetable of the day, it was never brought to me, although I never queried the waitress. The only other downside to the meal was that I was never asked if I had saved room for desert. The waitress simply came around with all of our checks, which is a shame because the portion sizes given were perfect and I had ample room for some desert and coffee. I would still recommend the Frederica House to anyone, just be sure to ask for desert! I'm sure it would be great!
Went looking for a home cooked southern seafood meal. Rustic atmosphere was neat that is about it. Only crab on menu was Alaskan king. This is Georgia and this place is on an island. The only local seafood was shrimp. Even the fish of the day wasn't sold as fresh that day. Nothing really southern or fresh about this restaurant. Skip this one.
Great Service, food is Ok but would not make a special trip to eat there

ECHO

Reviews:
Echo is the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful St. Simons view and some awesome grub. I thoroughly enjoyed the filet which came with TRUFFLE grits (uh-mazing) and broccolini (special order). Speaking of special orders, I asked for a greyhound as my beverage, which was not on the menu, and Kristopher was very cool about making it happen. Definitely order the chicken dumplings. They were the best dumplings I've ever had in my life. In fact, I could eat some right now. Can't wait to return and try another dish!
I visited Echo at the K&P for breakfast yesterday with one goal...a glass of champagne while sitting at an ocean front table enjoying breakfast. I checked their website, saw that breakfast service began at 7:00 am, previewed their Breakfast Cocktail Menu (mimosas, yes!...if they serve mimosas then they obviously serve champagne) and eagerly planned my visit. Upon arrival at 7:05am, I was seated outside at a beautiful and comfortable ocean front table. When I ordered my much desired glass of champagne, the waitress told me that bar service was not available until 8:00 am. I stated that the hours were not indicated on the breakfast cocktail menu, she apologized and said these were the rules. So, I decided to have breakfast first and then champagne at 8:00. Whatever, I'm flexible. I ordered the spinach, artichoke and tomato quiche. It was about the size of the palm of my hand and perfectly cooked. I'll be the first to admit that I do not have a discerning palette, but I'm pretty sure there were no artichokes or tomatoes in the quiche. It was served, however, with a large spinach salad with artichokes, tomatoes and mushrooms. I'm not a fan of dinner salads for breakfast...fruit would have been a better choice but I guess they were going for a low carb option. About halfway through my meal, the waitress brings over my check. I reminded her that I was planning to order a glass of champagne at 8:00 when bar service began. At this point the landscaper arrived, fired up the loudest gas powered weed eater ever, and began weed eating a few feet from my table. I get it...there's probably no good time to do this...but it diminished my experience. It's now about 7:45 am...I'm just killing time until 8:00. Around 7:55, the waitress comes to refill my coffee, I remind her about the glass of champagne and she now says that bar service begins at 8:30. I'm annoyed, frustrated, etc. I contemplate leaving but I've already invested an hour into this experience and decide to just wait it out. Meanwhile, flies are buzzing around my plate which still has not been picked up. Fast forward to 8:30, waitress comes by to tell me that they don't serve champagne by the glass. She confirms that they sell mimosas, I ask if I can order two mimosas but have all the champagne in one glass and all the OJ in a second glass...she looks puzzled. I should have left but I just wanted to salvage the experience so I ordered a glass of moscato (gross!) and choked it down. In summary, I guess I should have called ahead and explained what I wanted but I feel like my desires were reasonable based on the internet research I did ahead of time. I do think the staff should have been better trained. If I had been told at my 7:05 arrival that bar service began at 8:30, I would have come back the next day (bonus...I would have missed the landscaper, too!).
The atmosphere is great. Renovated about a year ago and much nicer than before. Our waiter was competent but didn't seem fully comfortable, maybe he was newish. Food was decent. I had shrimp and grits. Fried pickle app was ok but it's just pickle spears deep fried- a little too much pickle and not enough batter for me. Pickle chips would be a better balance to me. Dinner for two, one app, one drink each, no dessert for almost $100 after tip. A little pricey to me.
