As usual, Gerald's Pig and Shrimp exceeded expectations! The menu of BBQ Pig, wings, slaw and macaroni during the Tybee Island Business Social was a culinary event! Earlier in the day I ordered a shrimp Po boy at his restaurant. It was delicious and looking forward to going back.

Party of three stoped in for a quick laid back lunch, and were not disapointed. We all ordered the shrimp poboy's with cucumber salads. The shrimp were not overly breaded and cooked perfection. Everyone was very happy with our choice for lunch and we would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal in a relaxed beach atmosphere. If... More

Stopped by in April and met Gerald who was so personable and friendly! The shrimp is incredible. We had the ribs as well and they were done perfectly. Everyone - parents and children - had a great meal and experience.

Was a last minute decision to pull in and eat there. One of the best decisions I have made regarding food in a long time. I had the fried shrimp. I am a coastal Ga. resident, so I speak with some experience and expertise. This is unequivocally the way fried shrimp should be cooked and taste. Delicate, very minimal light... More

Looks a little scary from the road but so happy we stopped! Absolutely great food!. The shrimp tacos ROCKED! Has a great children's menu. This place is outdoors and has a wonderful beach feel. The owner, a very nice man, was on site and went table to table, chatting with all his customers. My only complaint is the metal chairs... More

Everyone talks about Geralds so we had to give it a try. We tried the sample plate with barbeque shrimp and ribs. Shrimp was ok. Ribs were meaty but under cooked. The mango sauce was wonderful. You can put it on everything. Fun atmosphere as you sit outside on picnic benches and can visit the local shops after some barbeque.

My boys and I love to stop by Gerald's Pig and Shrimp. The Fried okra was the best I've ever had, and I am a good 'ol southern girl. Gerald is a ice guy too. He stopped by to check on us while we ate.

My wife and I have been to Gerald's twice during visits to Savannah over the past six months. Each time after eating there, we both commented that it was the best seafood we had while in the Savannah area. We typically eat at restaraunts with a variety of price points, ranging from hole-in-the wall places to nicer ones such as... More

Gerald's is always on our list of places to eat when in the Tybee area. I love the bbq and my wife loves the shrimp. The limeade is a real treat also.
