Outstanding roadside food

Gerald's provides a unique roadside dining with classic southern barbecue and seafood. His fried shrimp, shrimp po boy and oyster po boy are all delicious.

Delicious shrimp, and hush puppies. The shrimp had flaky light batter, and hush puppies amazing. Loved atmosphere and would like to try brisket next time. It smelled wonderful.

had the low country boil which was excellent. Two of us had the shrimp po boy sandwich which was lightly breaded and very good, one of us had the pork BBQ and thought it was okay but not special. Would come again.

I would recommend the Tybee Po Boy Oyster or Shrimp served in a bed of fresh cut coleslaw on a hoagie bun! The key to this sammy is eating it quickly which is easy to do. SECONDS PLEASE! A Tybee Island Blond brings a nice warm belch while patting your tummy in the afterglow of a great meal. Great food... More

This person does not understand that Local shrimp come in different sizes. They also do not understand that at a BBQ Joint we try to keep everything fresh, so On a late Sunday afternoon we could be out of some items because we can not pull something out of the freezer. she also felt privileged as she let her dogs...

The atmosphere at Gerald's is great! Even in the cold it was an enjoyable experiences and I can only imagine how it is in the summer! The ribs and brisket will satisfy any BBQ-lover, and the shrimp is the best I've ever had. Gerald even talked to our group during our meal and gave us the background story on how... More

We stopped in on a sunday ( opened for weekend in winter) and had a late lunch. We both ordered the shrimp po ' boys with a cucumber side and I went... More
