Fodor's Review

This elegant restaurant with a laid-back attitude makes everything except the ketchup right on the premises. Chef-owner Dave Snyder's devotion to quality has earned a faithful following of discerning locals. Slide into a cozy, tufted booth or sit at a table or the sophisticated bar lined with photos of yachts. Headliners include the seared, sushi-grade tuna with a plum-wine reduction; the Asian-style diver scallops; and the Georgia white shrimp and grits. The signature coffee hits the mark, accompanied by a vanilla bean crème brûlée with fresh strawberries.

Wonderful Food and Service

Creative food and excellent values from a top quality restaurant, David Snyder is always trying to meet the needs and wishes of his customers. The most customer focused chef/owner I have ever met. Great staff, especially Maxie at the bar, which is our choice of locations to dine. Fish is so fresh, becuase frequently the "Chef" caught it that day.

Type of place you would find in a larger city.

By far one of the best restaurants on the Island. Prices being extremely high are myths. If you're looking for a nice dining experience, this is the place to go.

best on the island

DonnaJo must have caught Halyards on an off night, because we've never had anything but fabulous dining experiences there. Their fall menu is great -- definitely worth a try!
