First, let me just say that I had the shrimp and grits at the excellent Jekyll Island Beach Club a few days before (it was excellent). Fins had a lot to live up to. However, they completely removed the previous meal from my memory. Wow. Tons of flavor, spicy and savory. Wonderful. And most shocking of all? There was CHEESE in the dish. Parmesan. Cheese and seafood is on of the deadly sins, I believe. But they pulled it off. If I could have licked my bowl, I would have.
Everyone in our party had a wonderful meal, and the waiter (sorry, I forget his name) was friendly, quick, and nice to my kids.
If it's not too hot, I recommend the beachfront dining outdoors. In the evening especially, the view over the ocean is incredible. They don't apparently take reservations, so plan accordingly.

It was some of the best tasting BBQ I have had in a while, and that includes KC, famed for its BBQ. The pork sandwich and beef I ordered were both very good and in depth taste of smoked meats. The sauces compliment the meat well. A rack of ribs was $20, and Micky had that. The atmosphere was nothing special, but that was okay because the good food made up for it.
Favorite Dish: The ribs were so very good tasting and the sauces were special, but plain meat that was smoked was the real treat

The food was basically okay, but not that good. It was apparently prepared ahead of time for the fried items, and the catfish were cool and that makes it more greasy than normal. YOu have to maneuver around picking out the bones because they come whole, and each may be about 1/3 pound.
It was a recommended place by a local, but I think its day has passed by, except that locals get used to the food without complaint. Service by the waitresses was mundane, and they had been there way too long, so the routine was boring for them.
Favorite Dish: The catfish plates come with one of more; so I chose three. It was filling enough, but

Hot dogs is the main feature-but a apparently lot of local people like the porkchop sandwich. All I read had rave reviews for this fast food (of sorts) place. People come from miles around and many out of state people have heard of the place and stop while driving along US 95.
Open 10-10 Tue-Sat
Favorite Dish: The cheese dog was very tasty, with great depth in flavors rather than the old traditional taste of a balony dog in casing

This is the place where locals come and drink beer and get a meal. A lot of them are families, so it is not just a youth hangout. The burgers must be the more popular, but they also have chicken, pasta, and seafood array to select from. Prices are reasonable, and the burgers run about $7.75-$.8.95, and Micky had the blacked grouper for $8.95. Steaks and seafood cost more, or course at $16-20 range, or market for scarce seafood
Favorite Dish: The hamburger was very good, and the beef high quality, while there was a load of fries. Beer was reasonable at $3 a pint

Mt Husband and I adore this place! We visited for our honeymoon in August of 2009 (a rainy weekend for the Beach Bash). Early Saturday morning we took a bike ride to the Rah bar hoping for shrimp and grits. They were not yet open, but we did have the pleasure of watching the shrimp boat bring in fresh shrimp (chatted with the captain, watched Trey the alligator scope out any unwanted fish as the shrimpers cleaned out their nets). We hung around the historic district for a few hours, waiting for the Rah bar to open. First in line for a seat on the pier, we ordered a couple of pounds of "u peel 'em shrimp" which comes with a delectable buffalo sauce, a bloody mary for me, and a beer for my husband. Omigosh, the food was fabulous, fresh, and we watched as their pier seating quickly filled up, while the pleasant, cheerful wait staff ran back and forth to the kitchen on even a dreary rainy day.
You MUST eat here!

Maybe I am dealing in the irrelevant but when I see a name like Latitude 31, I want to know where the name came from. Evidently this restaurant sits pretty much at 31 degrees latitude north. At any rate it is a pretty good place to eat. I found the food quite good and it is hard to beat the setting on the wharf at Jekyll overlooking the Jekyll River and the Marshes of Glynn. In my opinion, it is not a beautiful place as the décor is definitely minimal, but it is not ugly either. Our service was pretty good and the prices, while a bit more than some other places on the island, are not unreasonable. This restaurant also has the Rah Bar behind it (see my review of the Rah) and is a sister to the Driftwood Bistro at Villas by the Sea which is the best place I have found on the island (haven’t been to all of them yet).
Favorite Dish: I had a delicious spinach salad with candied pecans and mushrooms. I don’t know what the dressing was but it was light and delicious. My main course was James pasta which had fresh diced tomatoes and artichokes and topped with nice grilled chicken (blackened chicken was an option) and accompanied by their house bread with garlic butter. All of it was delicious.

The RAH Bar is a hole in the wall kind of place nestled behind Latitude 31 on the Jekyll wharf. Insided it will seat maybe 8 people at the most but there is ample seating on the dock overlooking the Jekyll River and the marshes. The day we were there it was too cold for outside dining but the smallness of the place makes it almost mandatory that you converse with other visitors. The menu is not extensive but what we had was really good and they seem to have a really good rep for mixed drinks. The bar seems to be associated with Latitude 31 which is adjacent and also quite good. I want to return for a drink and a snack during warmer weather to watch the sun set over the marsh and possibly catch a glimpse of some of the wild life that is so abundant there.
Favorite Dish: The prices are not exorbitant but about $20 for a low country boil seemed a bit much so my wife and I shared one. It was plenty of food and really good – shrimp, crawfish, sausage, crab legs, corn and potatoes and all washed down with a Newcastle Brown Ale. I am not a fan of raw (or rah which I think is taken for the “snow-birds” pronunciation of it) oysters but one of the guys at the bar really relished them so they must be good.

I have spent summers on Jekyll Island since I was a child, and the height of the trip was always dinner at Latitude 31. Last year, for our honeymoon, my husband and I continued the tradition with the final meal of our visit at this restaurant, and unlike others in the area I remember from my childhood, this one has remainded true to memory. The sky was clouded and the air was so thick we felt as though we were dog paddling through lava just to get to the end of the pier. Once inside, the air was cool, crisp, bright, friendly. The staff welcomed us, and after a quick drink at the bar with the locals, settled us into our table with a beautiful view of the sunset. The waitress was superb, efficiently refilling our drinks, knowledgeable about the menu and preparation of the food, and extremely accomodating to special dietary needs. The minimalistic setting of this restaurant is perfect for the view (anything more would over power it).
Once our orders arrived, they were not only beautiful upon presentation, but steaming fresh, and cooked to perfection! This restaurant is a MUST VISIT for your trip to Jekyll Island.

From the Upcountry of South Carolina, I have grown up vacationing on Jekyll Island. One of my first memories as an adult is visiting with my first "true beau". Blackbeard's has always been a staple on our family visits, and I reccomended this restraunt as a "night out". We ordered the low country boil and had a blast. That was almost 10 years ago. Last year, my husband and I spent our honeymoon on Jekyll Island, and lo and behold, found ourselves at Blackbeard's. The wait staff was too busy to take our order (too busy socializing, as we, and three other couples seated outside, along with the few meanderers at the bar, were the only ones there). When our order was taken, I had to go inside to ask for a refill of water (it had been 30 minutes since we'd seen our waiter), and when the bar tender refilled our glasses, they allowed me to carry them back outside to our table (as a southern gal, I found that extremely rude). Our food finally arrived after a 45 minute wait (I ordered a crabcake served on an English Muffin, which had delicious flavor, but was so cold, the sauce had soggied the "toasted dark" english muffin I had ordered). On a side note, after our food was delivered (at the same time as the other two tables around us...the waiter must have been too tired from his partying the night before at the Beach festival...as I'd overheard when I was requesting more water earlier...), he never brought us silverware (or the couples at the other tables. I literally had to go back inside to request silverware from the bar, for ourselves and the other tables, and when the bartender handed me ours, and the four other sets, there was no apology, no rush to fix it, just "here ya go", and a back turned to commiserate with the patrons sitting at the bar.
Long story short, I was extremely saddened and disappointed that a place I'd grown up looking forward to for a good meal could let me down so fiercely.
