Dine oceanside overlooking the dunes of Sea Island Beach and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. You don’t have to dress up, but that doesn’t mean we won’t put on our best. A beautiful setting. Fresh coastal seafood with a modern, Southern approach. Ingredients sourced from local farms. A refreshing cocktail. A well-deserved break from the activities of the day. Southern Tide’s casual, comfortable atmosphere makes it the perfect place to bring the kids, gather around a table, and share lunch or dinner. And stories of your Sea Island day. Our Chef’s goal is to provide a beachfront restaurant that is full of life, lots of laughs, and sunny smiling faces where all enjoy themselves.
In Chef Michael's Own Words
Being one of the youngest in a big family, my favorite times were with my grandmother, GG, in her kitchen. She taught me how to cook from the heart to actually love what you do. Now, I love cooking for others and watching how my food makes them happy. I also have an inherent love of seafood as I never lived more than five minutes from the beach. At Sea Island, whether it’s with the Tidal Tower, fresh Georgia shrimp and grits, guacamole, or triple tail, my goal is to see our diners bonding over lunch or dinner, sharing stories, making memories. There is nothing more important than family to me and my team and I look forward to welcoming you to the Southern Tide family.
With ocean views from your seat, what is more appropriate than a Tidal Tower for the table? Oysters on the half shell sourced from locations along the East, Gulf, and West Coasts. Locally caught wild Georgia Shrimp, known for its sweet taste, and meaty King Crab Legs. All of this paired with traditional accompaniments such as cocktail sauce, saltines, lemon wedges, and mignonette. It doesn't get any fresher than this!
