Regional cuisine prepared by our skilled chefs is a highlight of visits to Little St. Simons Island, with three meals daily as well as soft drinks, beer and wine included in the nightly rate. Simple yet delicious meals include fruits, vegetables and herbs from our organic garden as well as local seafood and produce. Our seed-to-table program is dedicated to the research and demonstration of organic crop methods for coastal southeast soils, while providing the best possible produce for our guest meals.
Breakfast and dinner are served family-style in the Hunting Lodge dining room. Lunch is served there, too, except on most Saturdays (weather permitting) when it is presented seaside. Picnic lunches are also available.
Each evening before dinner, a delightful social hour with wine and hors d'oeuvres is held, including Friday evening oyster roasts (seasonal when local oysters are available) on the Lodge grounds. All are favored times to recount the day’s adventures with family and new friends.
In addition to growing fresh produce, herbs and flowers in our own certified organic garden, we are proud to support local farms, fishermen and products. The Lodge kitchen uses the following local suppliers:
