    Capital Steak & Seafood House: The Perfect Steak

    by Staciajc Written Jun 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place was awesome! We ate there 2 nights (one for Room-service @ the Clarion, one inside the restaurant!) Both times the steaks were PERFECT! Service was a bit slow - but worth the wait for a great steak!

    Favorite Dish: My husband got the seafood buffet (Saturdays for dinner) - he loved the crab legs!

    Sea Jays: Low Country Boil!

    by Staciajc Written May 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is tres casual and so good! Waitresses in t-shirts bring cold drinks to the back deck and then it's off to the buffet where the cooks offer up a traditional Low Country Boil - Shrimp, Sausage, Corn, Red Potatoes...if you don't see a lot of shrimp - just ask your servier - they'll bring more!

    Don't like Low Country? It's OK - they have a menu if someone wants something else!

    Favorite Dish: The Low Country Buffet

    Sea Jay's Waterfront Cafe: Brunswick Stew

    by grandmaR Updated Jan 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A nice family type restaurant where the waitresses are friendly, service is good and the prices are low. You can eat on the porch, but the no-seeums may be bad in some seasons. Inside there is a bar, and you can seat yourself where you can watch TV or not.

    Winter sunset deck specials (Dec 1 to mid March) 5 to 6:30 pm
    Sunday Scampied Coastal Shrimp
    Monday Crispy Crab Cake
    Tuesday All American Pot Roast
    Wednesday Chicken Parmigiana
    Thursday Bar-B-Que Bacon Wrapped Scallops

    Favorite Dish: Brunswick Stew is my all time favorite here.

    They also have a signature buffet (all you can eat) dish called Low Country Boil which includes shrimp, corn, potatoes and sausage for $14.95, but Bob feels like there's too little shrimp and I think there's too much sausage, so we don't get it.

    Hearty Brunswick Stew - Bowl $4.95 or Cup $ 3.75
    Tender Pork in a Tomato & Veggie Stew, with Cornbread Twists

    They have sandwiches, snacks, entrees and desserts.

    When we were here in November 2001, our bill was $39.66, but that included a big serving of Brunswick stew which we took back to the boat. I got it in case we had to eat on the boat at Thanksgiving.

    When we visited at lunch in 2007, we each had a cup of Brunswick stew, Bob had a 1/4 lb. of steamed shrimp, and I had a BLT (pictured) and a Friazo (pictured).

    Sea Jay's in the spring Sea Jay's from the parking lot in 2007 My BLT with pasta salad ($5.95) Peanut Butter Friazo ($4.95) Sandwich section of the menu

  • Zachry's Seafood Restaurant: Don't waste your time or money here!

    by MrsMichael Written Jul 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Overpriced, small portions, slooooow service, waaaay overpriced! Service was pathetic, and once they realized we were displeased, no effort was made to make us happy. The $100 meal should have been spent at the Jekyll Island Club!!! This restaurant is directly across from the Conference Center - you'd think their service and food would be good. Six thumbs WAY down!!!

    Favorite Dish: Not a thing! All six of us agree. Not much better than eating at a Waffle House - and we love waffle house, but when one goes on vacation to a local seafood establishment, one expects more for their money!

    Bennigan's

    by vhasouth Written Aug 24, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bennigan's is a chain, but it is convenient to the Days Inn. We wound up eating dinner for 2 nights here and honestly, enjoyed our meals.

    Jekyll has a limited number of restuarants. We found Bennigan's to be "family-friendly" and with its fast service we were able to eat quickly and then continue exploring the island

  • Lattitude 31: Best FRESH Seafood & atmosphere!

    by poochiekins Written Aug 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lattitude 31 is by far THE BEST Restaurant on Jekyll Island, nothing else comes close, hands down!

    Favorite Dish: If you are eating at the 'Rah Bar' on the deck outside, the Shrimp and Crab Legs are delectable!!!!! They also have live local entertainment during the Spring and Summer - it's great! Plus, you're out on the water, beautiful sunsets and you can look right at their own Shrimp Boats docked right there.
