Awesome place, best kept secret on Tybee. Fried Shrimp and hushpuppies to die for. If you want a quaint eatery without the loud music so good friends can spend time then this is your place. Thanks Gerald for a great Sunday afternoon.

Not peak season, there were some locals sitting outside enjoying the fire and talking, everyone from the customers to the staff were very inviting and friendly. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is casual. The food was Fabulous, I had ribs and a shrimp poboy.

Family has a late 2pm lunch here. Great spot, quiet. Second time here. Wife and I had shrimp Po boys. Shrimp was excellent. Reasonable prices. Would like to see a lunch menu with more variety. Just had a few sandwich items. Will stop back again.

I've been to Gerald's several times. I love the fried shrimp there. His BBQ is great, too. I have also had him cater several oyster roasts for me. He has a great set up for it, very efficient, very little mess. One of my favorite things about Savannah in the winter is oyster roasts. Having Gerald cater it makes it... More

Gerald had his Pig & Shrimp ready for our party of 40 + hungry travelers on a Monday night when he is normally closed. The fried shrimp was outstanding ! Green beans, fried okra, hush puppies, pork & beef BBQ, oh what a meal it was ! Good time had by all. Seventeen years ago Gerald fed the same crew... More

This island dive offers an ambient rustic feel with humorous signs and fishing nets decorating the scene. They're food is a bit pricy but the ribs, brisket, and pork is absolutely amazing. So glad we tried it out. And do not forget to try the hush puppies.

Gerald's can be counted on to satisfy your taste buds when you're at the beach! Casual, low key, and delicious! The brisket and the shrimp are so amazing that I may never even try anything else on the menu! Gerald keeps it friendly and light-hearted, so it's exactly what you want when you're at the beach!

Honestly, this place was the only one open when we needed to eat late lunch on weekdays. We ordered seafood and the shrimp tasted just ordinary. We did not think this was that good. Just boiled small shrimp, tasted not so fresh, smelled. Maybe we should have ordered BBQ. There was only one lady waiting the entire place by herself,... More

Ok, so this is my second review for this place. Last year I said they are a "solid 4". Nope, I was wrong - they are a big fat 5! We ate here twice this week. If they were open during the week we'd eat here every day. Sautéed shrimp is out of this world. And, as The Man himself... More

Thanks, Even though Gerald's is just a small "Roadside Joint" I try very hard to serve the best that is available . True I may not be the brightest bulb in the pack, But I do know how to Fry Shrimp. At this time of the year, the Shrimp I serve might have been caught the night before. Thanks for... More

The food here is the best on Tybee. It's fresh, and cooked to order. Gerald is very friendly, and an interesting guy to talk to while you wait for your food. We eat here as much as possible when visiting Tybee. Why go elsewhere or pay more?
