Good food great atmosphere

Atmosphere is what you want when you come to the beach. Probably some of the best fried shrimp I've ever had! Service was attentive and Gerald was there welcoming guests which in my mind is always a plus. I recommend a visit when on Tybee!

Our family of 7 ate here for dinner. We chose this restaurant based on other ratings. We were very disappointed. The shrimp were ok but not hot. The pork ribs were hard, dry and tasteless. Plain loaf bread was included. The coleslaw was good. But overall the meal was not worth paying $21.00 each.

I have dreams of Gerald's housemade limeade, it's seriously that good! They have a solid menu, tasty but fairly average. Fun ambience, I love their set up.

My husband had the oyster po'boy. Both of our meals were awesome! You absolutely must try the fresh squeezed limeade. Yummy! One of the best local spots we discovered while there!

All four of us had seafood so we can't comment on the bbq. My husband loved his sautéed shrimp. I had a shrimp po boy, and it was too bready, hardly any shrimp at all. The roadside set up was fun, with plenty of Tybee charm and goofy signs.

Best damn food I ate the whole time I was on vacation. Started off with the hush puppies, which were out of this world. I got the shrimp po boy and it was the best shrimp I had the whole time I was in Georgia. Husband got the pulled pork and he said it was even better than Wiley's. Gerald... More

...the oysters were artfully fried, not greasy, not overcooked...usually I think po boys are served with too much bread, but nesting the oysters on GOOD cole slaw, and the addition of the house made sauce, knocked this up to a four-star sandwich...!

Really great food the shimp was to die for! It was a little pricey, but definitely worth it. Hope to visit again really soon.

Plenty of seating and parking. Within our group we got fried shrimp, hush puppies, pulled pork and brisket. All was delicious. Fast and nice service.
