st. simon's island with kids

hi y'all-

we are heading to st. simon's for a short vacation in about 2 weeks. this is our 2nd time, having traveled there last year as well. we are a large group - 6 adults, 4 young children. our favorite restaurants were Barbara Jean's (so good we went there twice!) and Fourth of May (easy stop for lunch). would love any other suggestions for places that are kid-friendly, as well as your picks for best breakfast on the island.


Barbara Jean's
214 Mallery St, Saint Simons Island, GA 31522

  1. If it is not too hot, Southern Soul, but most of their seating is outside, If you are in a condo or house get Southern Soul take out. Kids love the pork. Also go to Moo Cow for Ice Cream have flavore for every one. CJ's or Sals Pizza to go both have small dining rooms. Blackwater & Gnats Landing in Red Fern are good choices.

      Moo Cow was amazing on our last trip this summer. I loved the banana pudding ice cream while my girlfriend loved the Salty Caramel and cookie dough (very sweet). They also have some very unique flavors.

      I guess I forgot about CJ's (in the past) but I think their pizza is some of the best on the island, followed closely by Sal's. We had CJs twice in a week.

        My favorites are sundried cherry granola & lemon custard.

    2. If you are going to do any cooking, check out St Simon's Seafood, excellent high quality and mostly local seafood.
