Oh my heavens, this has to be hands down the best fresh seafood restaurant I've ever had the pleasure of dining at. From the perfectly seasoned, juicy shrimp to the succulent fried oysters. The sides even shined in their own right, such as the tempura french fries or the butter-soaked red skin potatoes. The service was downright wonderful as well, friendly and attentive to your every need while indulging. I dare say, if you ever find yourself coming to Jekyll Island, you simply must swing by and make it a meal worth remembering.

Great experience at Zachry’s Riverhouse. Drinks (Old Fashioned) was well made. Apps were absolutely fantastic. We ordered both Crab Cakes and Tuna. I could’ve ate 3 orders of the crab cakes as my all and entree and been satisfied. I would 100% come back even for the Crab Cakes. Georgia Shrimp baskets were really good. Hush puppies were delicious. Overall very impressed with the this restaurant

Absolutely the most delicious seafood I ate on the island! The peel and eat shrimp were SO big and fresh, the crab soup was very light and tasty, and the hush puppies were spot on. I highly recommend this yummy spot for lunch!

The Zachry's have long been a fixture on the island from the days when their family operated a shrimp boat and seafood market until the opening of the original Zachry's (1987) in the old shopping center.

Come on down and join us in our new location to relax on our front deck and listen to local live music while taking in the views of the Jekyll River and beautiful sunsets.
