Coastal Kitchen, one of the best restaurants on St. Simons.  Look out on the boats at the marina.

Jaxspice, a great Indian restaurant in jacksonville.  Well worth a drive. 

Mallory Street Cafe

Reuben at Mallory Street Cafe.  Even though this sandwich looks great, it wasn't.  It was dry and tasteless.  It's a shame, though since the Mallory Street Cafe usually has great food.  My favorite is the Eggs Benedict.

The potatoes were great and the chicken piccata was also good.

We'll certainly try again.

Bonefish Grill.

Bonefish is a chain, but usually a good one.  This is lobster and broccoli and spinach.

Bonefish Grill, St. Simons Island.  Come visit and join us for some good food.

Grouper at St. Simons Seafood Company

Grouper at the St. Simons Seafood Company.  The food was good, the decor not so much so.  The restaurant is cold, industrial, and has metal chairs.  Not a place where you would like to stay and drink a bottle of wine and enjoy a meal with good conversation.

Coastal Kitchen, St. Simons Island, Georgia

We hadn't been to Coastal Kitchen in a while.  Right after they changed ownership, we felt that the quality wasn't what it had been.

We were pleasantly surprised this week, though, when we took guests to Coastal Kitchen.

This is the Snapper special on mashed potatoes and green beans.  It was delicious.  it was so good, I couldn't stop eating, but wound up with lunch the next day.  The fish was cooked in wonderful seasonings and the mashed potatoes (something I rarely eat) were just so creamy and full of flavor. 

This is the Paella, also great.  The shrimp was so moist and juicy.

Even the fried shrimp looked great.

Coastal Kitchen is one of the few restaurants on the island that takes advantage of the island view.  There is an outside seating area overlooking the marina. 

Wonderful location and now they seem to have gotten the food together. 

I would highly recommend this restaurant.

If you're coming to St. Simons, check out Farmer and Larder in Brunswick.  It's one of the best restaurants in town.
