We're from the north and there are lots of places that try hard to emulate a funky BBQ joint, but Gerald's has it down! Not only is the atmosphere authentic, the food is excellent! I had the pork and shrimp dinner and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich. We also had a side of hush puppies. The BBQ was... More

I eat fried shrimp at most seafood restaurants. This was some of the best I've had anywhere. It was very lightly breaded. It comes with two sides and hushpuppies. I had the plain hush puppies and they were okay. They also offer a a jalapeño version but I didn't try those. The french fries were really good - didn't taste... More

We have never had better BBQ. Everything from the quirky shack, awesome server, sweet tea and everything we ordered (pulled pork, shrimp, ribs, wings, baked beans and coleslaw) gets 5 stars 👍👍👏👏

Our family went there a couple of weeks ago and had a great time. It was a little after lunch when we got there; a few other groups were there and a couple of fishermen at the bar. One waitress was assigned to everyone and she did a good job. Service was friendly; food came out without a big wait... More

The service was not engaged and the food was extremely over priced for the quality. The shrimp had no taste and the BBQ & Brisket was overwhelmed by the sauce. Definitely a no go.

Best fried shrimp and hush puppies in Tybee/Savannah area. We always stop and have the best meal after the beach. Laid back atmosphere - nothing like mauling a perfectly cooked and fried platter of shrimp and hush puppies with ice cold homemade lemonade/limeade. It takes the sunburn away!! Staff is the warmest and most accommodating ever - you can call... More
