Welcome to Sterlings the most inhospitable restaurant in the South! I have had several experiences here, the first is the snooty attitude of the staff, but it is quaint & the food ok so I overlooked that. Next, I bring my boat club friends here to dinner. Not only have they run out of dessert (the whole reason for going)but the server empties a glass of ice water down the back of one our guests, remember we came by boat & walked there, it was 25 degrees walking back. My mother in law, a native, called to make arrangments for a baby shower with approximately 20 guests. No problem, we have showers all the time. She even called to verify the reservation & was told no problem. When the 20 guest arrive, we are told NO GIFTS, NO PARTIES. Are you kidding me? I have guests from North Carolina & Orlando, FL & they wanted us to leave because "They are trying to run a business!" Excuse me, we are your business. Also we were told if we have one more guest show up, then we would have to pay $45 per person for a $9.95 lunch plate. The place never filled up, there were no people waiting for our tables. The guy can't count either, he tried to put 20 adults & an infant into 15 chairs. We should have left, but where do you go with 20 guests toting gifts? They didn't want to give up the dessert either, We were told there was only one piece of cake left, then as if by magic, another entire cake appearered. By the way, we asked if they would order extra Lemon & Coconut pies prior to our reserved day, NO, if we run out then it is your fault for not coming earlier in the week. There are other eateries to choose from with genuine Southern Hospitality.
MM 712.0 Lang's Marina
This marina has two parts - one part is for long term dockage. The other part is mostly for transients. The transient part has floating docks (almost a necessity), and two bathrooms with showers (one each sex). There is CONSIDERABLE tidal range here, and also it is quite subject to wakes - even the wakes of small boats going relatively slowly will slam into those on the outer docks. The exposed tidal flats also give rise to many no-see-ums.
NOTE: If you are tempted in spite of the no-see-ums and wakes to stay here, be aware that you may not stay on board your sailboat more than 30 days per calendar year. They have fuel, pumpout ($15) and dockage is $1.00/ft. They had a dockmaster when we were there, but she was quite new, and isn't always available. Facility does not provide launching
The website says: A full service marina that can accommodate a variety of boats ranging from a luxury cruise liner to a small fishing boat. A concrete floating dock is on site and services such as fuel, provisions, and shower facilities are available.

Georgia the Peach State
"Southern peach pies."
I spent a whole month in St. Mary Georgia, and the heat and humidity was something else, I felt like melting and drowning at the same time.
So much trees and flat lands, lots of paper factories in this State.
