The only oceanfront dining on St Simons Island, ECHO at the King and Prince Resort, is fantastic for a meal with the whole family or for date night! With indoor and outdoor seating, ECHO St Simons Island offers something for every occasion and the food is unbeatable.
We dined at ECHO when we stayed at the King and Prince Resort though you do not need to be staying at the resort to make a reservation. In fact, I’m considering taking a detour to St Simons Island just to eat at ECHO next time we’re making the drive from North Carolina to Florida!
We opted to have lunch inside since it was kind of windy and were so excited to have a window table with a great view of the water. But I definitely want to sit outside next time we go!
If there’s shrimp on the menu, you can bet this guy plus at least one other kid will order it for an appetizer/entrée. And let me tell you, the peel and eat shrimp at ECHO was probably the best I’ve ever had!
Wild Georgia Peel & Eat Shrimp: Wild Georgia Shrimp, comeback sauce, spicy mayo, cocktail sauce
Grouper Tacos: Fried and Blackened, flour tortillas, southern slaw, red pepper chow chow, tartar sauce
First of all, these grouper tacos are considered an APPETIZER but you could totally make a meal out of them – especially if you added a side. We all gave a slight edge to the blacked grouper though the fried was still tasty.
Happy faces, ready to enjoy a delicious lunch! The service at ECHO was absolutely phenomenal. In addition to checking on us and keeping drinks refilled, our waitress brought out a bunch of strawberries once she heard they were Ellie’s favorite. I swear, this girl could LIVE on strawberries!
Crab Cake BLT: crab cake, bacon, heirloom tomato, frisée, dill mayo
Salmon BLT: salmon, bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo
Nick and Ben both loved their sandwiches! Nick said the crabcake was flavorful with not a lot of filler and Ben said the salmon was cooked perfectly. We also enjoyed the Grouper Sandwich, the Seafood Mac and Cheese, and the Island Sampler (shrimp salad, maple pecan chicken salad, fruit salad, crackers).
And of course, we finished up our lunch with dessert. We ordered several different things to split and the Fudge Brownie Cheesecake and St Louis Gooey Butter Cake were the overall winners.
I cannot recommend ECHO highly enough. Everything about our meal was perfection from the atmosphere, to the food, to the service. We will most definitely be visiting again – hopefully soon!
