Where to Eat

Jim & Veta Recommend

Jim & Veta Recommend

Veta is an experienced cook and can whip up classic southern dishes like nobody’s business. She doesn’t fool around when it comes to good southern vegetables either! Jim is a great cook in his own right. He can often be found in his backyard beside his Big Green Egg with a tasty beverage in hand… But when the occasion calls for a little dining out, their favorites include:

Crabdaddy’s
1217 Ocean Blvd., St. Simons Island, GA 31522 912.634.1120

Jim says: “I pretty much like everything on their menu but I really like their daily fish specials and their Parmesan Crusted Chicken is great dish .”
Jim’s advice: “Make reservations early, the place fills up. If you can’t get a reservation, you can always try your luck by just showing up and they do their best to fit you in.”

Veta favorite here is: “Shrimp. I love their shrimp. Grilled if I’m being good. Fried if I’m in the mood to be bad.”
Veta’s tip: ” “Order the bread pudding. Even if you don’t like bread pudding… order it.”

Sal’s Neighborhood Pizzaria
3415 Frederica Rd, Suite E, St. Simons Island, GA 31522 912.268.2368

Veta recommends: “I really like their chicken piccata but my absolute favorite here is their sausage and peppers!”
Jim’s advice: “The place is small and they really squeeze you in. So make some new friends while you eat.”

Nazzaro’s Italian
196 Retreat Village, St. Simons Island, GA 31522 | 912.634.6161

Veta’s recommends: “The Chicken Montrano. It has all my favorites, chicken, sausage, peppers and a garlic cream sauce!”
Jim’s favorite here: “I really enjoy their nightly specials, whatever sounds interesting. I’m never disappointed.”
Their advice: “You may need to use your phone’s flashlight feature, the dining room’s mood lighting isn’t very conducive to reading menus.”

Indigo Coastal Shanty
1402 Reynold’s Street, Brunswick, GA 31520 912.265.2007

Veta’s favorite here is: “…the Bahamian Curry Chicken. A great combination of flavors with sweet potatoes and kale in a delicious curry. It sounds a bit odd at first, but it’s really delicious!”
Jim’s tip: “Get there early because it gets crowded and they don’t take reservations! If it’s nice out, sit out on their deck!”
