We walked into this restaurant, which had a "wait to be seated" sign, but no on was attending to us. We tried sitting at the bar. The restaurant was NOT busy and the bartender just kept walking back and forth past us, not even looking in our direction and blatantly ignoring us. So, after 5 minutes, I grabbed a server... More

We came here to celebrate our daughter's 32nd birthday, and what a great place to do just that. Our waitress was Katrina, and she was courteous, attentive, and even brought a cute chocolate lava cake with a sparkler in it to celebrate the birthday. Plenty of snow crab legs for the price, the crab quesadillas were excellent, and the Margarita... More

Perfect evening to sit outside and enjoy the beach view at dusk, and then watch the stars pop out. The table of about 10 next to us was doing a painting class so that was fun to watch. We ordered the flower pot bread with dipping sauce, ribs, and fish tacos. They were all tasty.

Great atmosphere with live music on the beach. I had the low country boil which was good. The wife had fried ship which was excellent! Their cocktail sauce was amazing...definitely worth a try!!

We decided to make a side trip to Tybee Island while staying in Savannah. We had recommendations to 2 places...so glad we ended up here. I love a good beach bar -- breezes blowing through your hair, great music, fun bartenders, good food & cocktails. My blood pressure lowers immediately! I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. Just go...relax...and... More

Came in to eat off of the beach while on a girls trip and we were all very excited to find a bar/restaurant that was close. Came in and had a very unpleasant interaction with a rude bartender while we were waiting. Decided to brush it off as that guy just being a jerk and went to sit down and... More

We ate here for the great location, right by the pool and beach! It's perfect to put an order in, hop in the pool and the jump back out when the food is delivered. The staff was friendly and gave good service. The food was good also! Overall it's a nice place to eat and play!

Great place to get drinks you can not beat the view. They also have live music. And in 100 feet you are at the beach.

We had the Low Country Broil and very pleased. Sat. night and very crowded, but got a table outside by pool. Only complaint was waiter at the end wanted to wait on his tip before taking card to be run and he had another customer's card also. Thought that was a little tacky so we asked him to go on... More

The restaurant has a lovely view, that much is true. I ordered the fried artichoke hearts appetizer and did love them with the horseradish dipping sauce. My entree was the shrimp nachos. The portion was huge which was fine. The shrimp was a little skimpy for the amount of chips and while the menu promised "fresh" guacamole (which was one... More
