Sea Jay's Waterfront Cafe: Brunswick Stew
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).

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