The Blue Parrot is a local’s favorite, located at 68 West Gorrie Drive. Enjoy indoor seating in an air-conditioned dining room, downstairs in the sunshine, or upstairs on the covered deck. You can even kick back with your feet in the sand, drinking a cold Margarita or beer as dolphins jump in the waves. Try the world-famous oysters or Blue Parrot Seafood Platter or enjoy one of their signature sandwiches like the Blackened Tuna BLT.
Beach Pit features the culinary genius of Chef John whose cooking career got started when he was just a child. In his teens, he perfected his menu while working for an aunt in Texas before attending culinary school and taking a job at Wendy’s. He eventually became a trainer for the food chain working alongside Dave Thomas for many years. He eventually moved to Georgia where he joined forces with Mike and the two opened a barbecue restaurant. In 2010 while vacationing in St. George Island, the two decided to open a second location. The Beach Pit offers more than just barbecue, featuring steak, seafood, and burgers. Bring in what you catch, and they will cook it for you. Visit them at 49 West Pine Avenue.
Mango Mike’s is a family-friendly location serving sandwiches, entrees, and seafood made from the freshest ingredients. Try their smoked barbecue or buffalo oysters or grab an order of Oysters Rockefeller. Other favorites are the shrimp nachos, St. Louis style ribs, and Hawaiian chicken sandwiches. Specialty drinks include Mike’s Mango Margarita, Goombay Smash, Hurricane Michael, and the Lemon Drop. They are located at 36 West Pine Avenue in Eastpoint.
Locals claim that if you want the best pizza at the beach, you have to go to BJ’s Pizza & Subs. Originally opened in the Pine street Mini Mall with just two tables in 1990, the location may have changed but the food is the same, made with the freshest ingredients. They emphasize family, atmosphere, and environment. Enjoy your pizza on the deck with your four-legged family members as well. Visit them at 105 West Gulf Beach Drive.
There is nothing like ice cream at the beach and when people who live in St. George Island want ice cream, they head to Aunt Ebby’s Ice Cream at 147 East Gulf Beach Drive. There you will find huge scoops of ice cream handed to you with a smile. Enjoy views of the Gulf while you eat your hand-dipped ice cream and listen to some great classical music.
