Reviews:"On my latest trip down south, I decided to skip the regular barbecue fare and check out the local sushi. While I had no reason to expect good sushi in Georgia, I was curious. 10 minutes from my hotel, located at a shopping center on St Simon's Island, was Miyabi restaurant, one of 9 in the South. The restaurant has a large sushi bar with seating for 14, as well as many secluded tables, and several hibachi grills. The sushi chef was not the usual mono-lingual Japanese expert, but, in all honesty, a southern "good old boy" whom I wouldn't be caught dead buying a car from. But god bless the South for men like this chef, because his expertise in sushi was stunning. The fish was excellent, fresh, and surprisingly varied, Uni and fresh scallops were in stock, but the real stars of the meal were the rolls, interestingly flavored and hand-crafted precisely. The flavors were authentic Japanese, simple, light, and elegant. The influence of the South was very evident throughout the meal, however, with several baked and tempura-fried rolls available as an alternative to the raw fish. Lots of sweet plum-soy sauce and Japanese mayonnaise permeated baked scallops with smelt roe and avacado. The quality of the meal is only unsurprising given the fact that this restaurant has been open for 15 years! My recommendations are to forego the menu, and take advantage of the interesting special rolls of the day. "

"Miyabi is closed; there is no sushi restaurant on Saint Simon's Island anymore. Sushi purists must for now be forced to swallow their pride (and some sub-standard sushi) at Tokyo Joe's in Brunswick, the closest venue for Japanese cuisine at the moment. "
