    Ambience and Service was outstanding! Several of our dishes were not enjoyable due to the over seasoning-especially on salt. Would I go back…possibly but not in the near future.

    Dorothy’s is unique to St. Simons. The feel is more cosmopolitan than many of the other local restaurants. The interior is well decorated. The atmosphere lends itself to a fun dining experience. All of the meals we’ve enjoyed at Dorothy’s are top notch. And the drinks are quite nice, too.

    I’ve had dinner with a friend here and enjoyed it so much that I wanted to bring my birthday. Our server was so great and made great recommendations on dishes to try. You can’t go wrong with any of the cocktails or dishes!

    Our experience at Dorothy’s was very good. We were seated right away and our Server explained the ordering process was was very well educated on the menu. She guided us through our selections and was attentive to our needs. The food was good overall but we did find the the Scallion Pancake a bit greasy. The Tuna Tartar was the amazing along with the Cabbage Rolls. We also tried the Fire Roasted Chicken. The smoke level and seasoning were good but the breast ate a little dry. We finished with almost the best Bread Pudding we’ve ever experienced. Thanks for the great anniversary meal.
