Date Night Dining on Saint Simons Island

Feb 7, 2023

What could be more luxurious than a leisurely evening on the town? Whether you’re an early bird or a laissez-faire late diner, we have a list of the most celebrated date night locations on Saint Simons Island.


This impossibly chic Eurocentric eatery features limited seating, a classically curated menu that changes nightly and an atmosphere of elegance. Dining room, outdoor dining and bar seating are available, and the service at each we found to be impeccable. Whether you join them for dinner Wednesday through Saturday or Brunch on Sunday, ensure your reservations are made well in advance.

Dorothy’s Cocktail and Oyster Bar 

This is a haven for fresh oysters and other delicacies with purposeful elevated Japanese influence. From the stunning raw bar featuring crudos and tartar to the substantial and inventive cocktail menu. The stylish atmosphere is sure to wow a significant other when visiting for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, reservations recommended.

Georgia Sea Grill

Located in the heart of the village and pier area, the Georgia Sea Grill is like a familiar song. Always sophisticated with white linen tablecloth service and warm welcoming charm that is determined to not take itself too seriously. This restaurant is special, as many of the vegetables featured are grown specifically for the restaurant at a nearby farm, that shares the same owner. Join them in the dining room or select from two separate bar areas Monday through Saturday, reservations recommended.


When the Chef Owner of this restaurant (and other restaurants), is the one doing the fishing, you know you are in for a treat. Halyard’s is refined and modern with a bold, ever-changing menu. Pair an impeccable wine menu with an exceptional sommelier (and general manager) and enjoy a refined dining experience with indoor dining, outdoor dining or bar seating, Monday through Saturday, reservations recommended.
