A family favorite! Great food service and ambiance.

We had the best waitress, Kenzie. She was amazing, took excellent care of us and made sure we had everything we needed. The manager of the night was Robbie and he was the best! The food was amazing! I can't say enough positive things about Sara J's!

The food is still great & the take out service is extremely easy. The bartender, Robbie is a wonderful ambassador for Sara Js.

Wonderful atmosphere and view. The food was great, and Rob was awesome bartender. Make sure you get the Saltwater Lemonade. It is very refreshing. A great place to eat and enjoy the marsh view!

It was ok.... nothing exceptional. Avoid the shrimp cocktail. Our dinner was good a little expensive for the quality.

We are on vacation from the Midwest and we're looking for good seafood last night and Sara J's was exactly what we were looking for. Our server was Virginia and she took excellent care of us. There was another young man serving the table near us and he, too, was absolutely wonderful. Plus, two other gentlemen came by and checked on u ... read more

Yum-Mazing! Our family was staying nearby for a week's vacation from Iowa and our group was torn between seafood or steak, so we went with BOTH! Service was outstanding (thank you, Virginia) and we even had two different gentlemen stop by our table to check on us and ask how everything was. Unfortunately, I didn't realize people actu ... read more

Sara J’s is the only place to get seafood on the south end. You get an abundance of delicious, fresh seafood for such a great price. I’m telling you, the amount of seafood they put on a plate is enough to share (though you certainly won’t want to bc it’s so good). I typically get the Sara J’s platter fried. The scallops are cooked pe ... read more

Service was the best we have experienced in a long time. Chapel was our waitress and was on her game 100%! Sirloin Steak & fresh Mahi was Outstanding. Shrimp scampi was “okay”; Lobster was done do perfection. Hush puppies were an enjoyable starter and the tea was great even for $2.99.

Their fried seafood is very good, it’s not over cooked or greasy. We went in about 7:30 on a Thursday night with a party of 6, and was seated immediately. We did had a couple small issues with the service, and our bill, which both were eventually corrected to my satisfaction to where I wouldn’t hesitate returning.

We sat on the deck at Sara J's and had a lovely meal. The kids were able to see some fireworks and the food was awesome. I had the shrimp scampi and was thrilled with the amount of shrimp I got. It tasted amazing! Husband got crab cakes and said they were great as well. We will be back when we come back to Garden City.

Ordered take out tonight. Chicken and shrimp was good but didn’t realized that I didn’t get my side of teriyaki until I was back to the house ☹️ I was really excited for teriyaki shrimp. Otherwise, very friendly staff, clean restaurant, and good food!

Good, but was better past years
We have been eating at Sarah J's for the past 10 years during our visits to Garden City. The quality and quantity of our meals has steadily decreased to a point we starting looking for a new seafood restaurant.

Cheddar grits are out of this world! Great little out of the way place to eat. Ordered takeout during COVID-19 and peak season with only 45 min wait. Seafood platters have ample portions and everything (shrimp, deviled crab, fish) were tasty. Homemade cocktail sauce was slightly spicy but not overly so. Will definitely visit again ... read more

We were told that it would be 45 mns and it only took 10. The waitress was very nice and kept our glasses full. A variety of different entree's were ordered and everyone was well satisfied. We would definitely eat here again.

This is our go to seafood restaurant when we camp at Ocean Lakes Campground. Sits on the inlet which makes for great viewing. We have mostly eaten on the rear deck area. If it’s a little cool, they lower the clear plastic so no worries. With great food and even great staff, why go anywhere else!

10 hungry guest, 1st time at Sara J’s and give it a strong 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️’s Oyster Stew, Seafood Chowder, shrimp & scallops to chicken and steak orders all incredible. The kids loved their chicken strips and grilled cheese and hush puppies with honey butter was a bonus. Fair pricing for quality food and large portions.

Our food was great as always but disappointed in the change in fries and coleslaw. I’m hoping this is a temporary change due to supply.

Good food and friendly staff. The service started off slow, but was quickly picked up by our server. Mojitos and signature drink were on point. Perfectly balances cocktails.
