After our first try we were hooked. We ate there three more times during our stay to St Simons Island. The food was superb. The atmosphere was friendly and elegant, and, if you are lucky, the owner will play timeless tunes on the piano as you eat. We are planning on coming back to this area and JMacs will be at the top of our list.
J Macs is an island tradition that has undergone many changes with the times. Totally redone with an emphasis on being top flight - the original Mac Mason has regained the helm and brought new visions of what the best can be on Saint Simons.
We found that we love it more than ever with the most professional waitstaff seen in our recent travels -- ask for Robert!
It was fairly slow the night we dined, and although we were satisfied with almost everything, there were a couple mistakes we noted. They would not keep us from going back though. Our Greek Ceaser salads, a standard menu item, not a special, were missing their olives. Also, my lemon pie dessert had no lemon taste whatsoever. Other than those 2 small things, everything was great and the service was excellent.
As owners of a vacation cottage on St. Simons Island, we wouldn't think of visiting without at least one night at J. Macs. We have recommended it to all of our friends and family, and left a copy of the Island Guide with the J. Macs page turned down for any guests that visit our cottage.
The appetizers are always wonderful and on evenings when dinner doesn't fit our plans, stopping bythe bar for martinis and a selection of appetizers is delightful.
The dinner menu changes based on the fresh ingredients that inspire the chef and his creations are never a disappointment. The combination of the attentive wait staff and the comfortable ambiance make this a nearly perfect restaurant destination.
