My parents were in for a visit and we decided to trek out to places we've heard about but had yet to venture out to. This hidden gem, literally off a dirt road and across the Julienton River, was superb. The Boom-Boom Shrimp appetizers was a great surprise. I expected something like Buffalo shrimp but this had a sweet kick... More

So we drove past Hunters the first time and to be honest...we weren't sure if we wanted to eat there because of the exterior. We drove around the block and decided to go back. We parked across the dirt lane facing the beautiful bluff overlook the river and marsh. We entered the restaurant and made our way around to the... More

I have been eating at Hunter's for years during our weekend trips down to Shellman Bluff. I have chosen it as my favorite spot many a time to celebrate various life events and to just come have a good time. The food has always been good, but they have slacked off a little the last few times I've eaten there.... More

Excellent restaurant at Shellmans Bluff in Mcintosh County along Georgia's coast. Truly unique and an ambience all its own as well as excellent food delivered promptly. The food is well prepared and tastes great.

Stopped for lunch on a local friend's recommendation. Fresh seafood any way you like it. Great views from the fish camp. Our group had hush puppies, grouper sandwich, fried shrimp, and fried oyster po boy. All very fresh. Left our decorated dollar on the wall with the others.

Great Location, friendly staff and some of the best shrimp ever. My wife and I went in for lunch on a Saturday. Had a hard time finding the place but several elderly gentlemen at the dock a block away showed us where it was. Everyone we encountered was super friendly. The shrimp were local and fried to perfection the fries... More

Good atmosphere. A lot of locals go there for drinks. View of the river. We didn't have anything special there. Cheeseburger and french fries and a grilled chicken ceasar salad. Very good but ask for the dressing on the side. A little too much for me.

Based on the reviews my wife and I went to H's expecting at least pretty good seafood etc. Her steak was stringy, not tender. My shrimp and oyster platter was nothing special; the oysters tiny and the shrimp not up to what most coastal places serve around here. The sides were what you'd get in a fast food joint. We...

Hunter's is a fun spot sitting just across the river in Shellman Bluff. It feels like a local place, pretty ramshackle inside, with friendly wait staff and tasty food. When my husband couldn't decide on a beer, the server got him a sample, which we appreciated. We started with the hush puppies basket which were fried to perfection and I... More
