One of my must stops in Tybee is Gerald's Pig and Shrimp! Gerald's is a one of a kind atmosphere! The food is super fresh and they have some of the best ribs around.

Mediocre food, service and lots of flies! You pay so much for so little portions to have flies land all over your food. It wasn't much better when my dad noticed a waiter killing flies on the tables. Blah! Absolutely no air conditioner either.

Gerald's has great shrimp, cold beer and good service. We had a great time reading the signs and sipping beer. Nice place to go when you don't want to dress for dinner. They're also right by an ice cream spot to finish off the evening.

We ordered the deal for two that came with brisket, chopped pork, three ribs and double shrimp with fries and Cole slaw. The best thing in the dish was the ribs then the shrimp and fries. The pork was OK. The brisket didn't have much flavor and was extremely fatty. The slaw was basically cabbage in mayonnaise. Service was fine... More

My wife and visited Tybee a few weeks ago and fell in love with Geralds Pig and Shrimp. We ate there three times, the shrimp poboy is fantastic. It has a great atmosphere and a very good staff. A great place for a relaxing laid back meal. Will eat there again.
