Dinner with a View
Excellent food and service. The Buffalo shrimp appetizer was a great choice. Had the Polynesian chicken, teriyaki chicken breasts with pineapple and cheese melt on top. Great view out on the deck.

We always eat here when we come to the beach and enjoy it every time. This time there were some minor problems. To start the waiting was terrible. An hour and a half for a table then another 45min for our food. It was a slow process. The food was also messed up a bit. We didn’t receive two of our coleslaws with the meals and one of m ... read more

Basic scampi and Buffalo shrimp were good, but packaged so that the celery was warm and limp. The fried oysters, scallops and stuffed crab were mediocre at best, greasy and bland.Sides were wrong/left out and condiments were limited. I know it is tough right now getting good help, but our dinner was way overpriced for the quality.

Awesome! Everything was delicious — hush puppies, grits, salmon, mahi mahi, all of it! An amazing meal, short wait and friendly service. Couldn’t ask for more! Thank you — we will be back!

Good but not great I feel like it's a tourist trap. The crab soup had no flavor, the half and half tea was just as sweet as the sweet tea was, the shrimp pasta had a inch of butter/sauce at the bottom of the bowl just wasn't good. I had the mahi with mango sauce and green beans.... Sadly the green beans were the best part of the meal ... read more

Just average, the wait for the table was not too bad, but the wait for the food was excruciatingly long. When our broiled platter arrived it was luke warm at best, side of slaw never arrived, baked potato was hot and the best thing on the plate.

First Seafood Stop Of The Week
I'm not a big seafood eater but my wife is and we decided to check out Sara J's and was happy with the result. I ordered a ribeye steak and honestly it's one of the best I have eaten. It was so juicy and tender. My wife and daughter had some seafood plates and the food was pretty tasty. The alchoholic drinks were a little on the weak ... read more

The service and food was very good, wth big portions. The only negative was that the front earing area got loud from all the customers but that later evened out. Still, a great place for seafood and a lovely view as well.

Josh Merlow was my server and not only was he very handsome he was very hands on with us! I loved it and he was so smart. The food was okay but he made up for it with his good looks. The awe behind his intellectual persona made my evening at "the j" even more enjoyable than imagined.. thanks josh!!

We come here for many of our special events! This place never disappoints, I hear a lot about it being overpriced, but this isn't a fast food joint!

I was disappointed. Good but salad was old and wilted. My chicken with cheese n pineapple was not grilled. Cheese very melted. Pineapple no grill marks at all.

This place should have at least 4 stars on yelp. Our fresh catch market fish meals were delicious and large portions. Mahi was fresh. The complimentary hush puppies instead of bread were sweet and crispy. The cheesy grits side were some of the best I've ever had. We sat outside on the patio which was perfect with a slight breeze.

Little Disappointed. Great view.
To be fair most of the group aren't seafood lovers. My husband loves seafood he thought it was good but didn't rave about it. Mom had chicken fingers but couldn't eat them because they were mostly all deep fried breading.
