Normally not a fried seafood fan but the oyster basket was tasty and ample. Plenty of decent fries and an average cole slaw accompanied the oysters.

We have eaten here a lot on our trips to Jekyll and we're never disappointed. The Brunswick stew is the best, hands down, I have ever had! So good with their cornbread. You won't be disappointed with anything you get!
