Southern Tide

Southern Seafood Favorites at the Beach Club

A Favorite Oceanside Tradition

Take a Tour

There’s a beautiful slice of beach on our ocean’s edge. A place that is an essential part of the Sea Island experience. A place that has changed over the years. A place that has come back to itself. Where traditions that took hold generations ago, are once again brought to life before bright young eyes. But its real charm lies in its ability to be anything to anyone. Family catch-up after a day at the beach. Romantic night out. Incredible culinary experience. But it’s always a special place to all of us, the reasons as varied as the memories it holds. At once formal and casual, Southern Tide is inspired by the coast of Georgia. And sits right on its beautiful edge.

With arguably the most beautiful view at Sea Island, Southern Tide is completely al fresco, the walls have come down to open the space to the most beautiful thing we have to offer—the ocean. It’s Sea Island oceanfront dining, the way you’ve always loved it.
