Chef John Helfrich offers a variety of wet- and dry-aged beef, and fresh seafood at Colt and Alison. The restaurant, located in The Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club, offers a tasty menu, expansive wine list and a delightful ambiance.
Southern Tide at the Beach Club overlooks the dunes and ocean. Chef Jason McGarry prepared a smorgasbord of regional entrées served family style. The slow-smoked, oak-brined pork ribs, grilled quail, seasoned oysters, baked beans and southern fried chicken were delicious, as was an assortment of scrumptious desserts.
Chef Paola Bugli presented an array of Italian-inspired dishes at The Cloister Tavola Restaurant. A mouth-watering medley from the open kitchen included fresh-made, thin-crust pizza, eggplant cannelloni, risotto, house-cured prosciutto, olive ciabatta and cannoli.
The Oak Room offers an extensive tavern menu, ranging from blue crab jalapeño hush puppies, shrimp and grits, and tuna tartar to a classic Caesar or Cobb salad. It's an ideal location for a relaxing meal with beer on tap, broad selection of wines, assorted single malts and cigars from the humidor.
The good weather and natural beauty have made the area an exclusive place to live. Many visitors come each year for the island's beaches, wetlands, subtropical forests, water recreation and golfing. Proximity to Jacksonville and Savannah makes for a short drive to and from the airports.
The gracious hospitality at Sea Island reflects a time gone by. Everyone seems to have an inherent character that nurtures a slow and easy lifestyle, as natural as conserving the environment around them. I still get an easy, peaceful feeling first felt many years ago on my first visit to this magical place by the sea.
