OK - since we have NEVER been on this drive - would love to have a few ideas on where to stop for a late lunch early dinner?

      Skippers in Darien. Really great fried seafood, nice atmosphere, great deck, oyster bar if you want. There's a really cute wine shop close to the entrance of the restaurant that I love going to also.

        B&J's is your best bet close to the interstate. If you want to explore Southern Soul Barbecue on St Simons is a 30 minute detour but worth it. The smoked sausage at Gary Lees west of 95 at the exit south of Brunswick is very good also.

            Don't you mean B & J's, as referenced in beteez's post above yours?

              At Darien exit - do you go to the right if you're heading south? Is it east or west of I-95?

                Just to reiterate, it's really really a hole in the wall. Not that the food isn't good but, seriously, a hole in the wall.
