The food and service here are just average. The servers are OK and the location is great, but don't get your hopes up. The interior of the restaurant is rundown and the restrooms need work.

While we love Spanky's and the food is very tasty, the service is horrific! A customer should not have to ask for their food. We waited 1hr 40min to sit down and it was another hour to get food, with a half empty restaurant.

The restaurant desperately needs a thorough cleaning, and could benefit from non - thrift store decor. The mismatched decor also sends a message that the owners couldn't care less. We were seated immediately, but once we placed our order, the wait was ridiculously long. We were tempted to leave. A neighboring table was also grumbling about the wait, and the... More

We visited with a party of 10 for an early dinner. We were sat pretty quickly for a party of our size. The food was passable but the restaurant seemed to need a good cleaning. Our server worked hard and the food was ok. I went with a burger. Others went for seafood. Not my first choice on Tybee.

We went here for lunch in June, 2015 and were very disappointed at the limited number of seafood selections on the menu. We were also disappointed in the small amount of food that was served. I mean who doesn't serve cole slaw and hush puppies with a shrimp basket? All we received was shrimp and a potato. Bleh! The waitress... More

We were walking the beach and wanted a late snack. Spankys was open and going strong. We stopped in to split a sandwich and got the Chicken Club and spuds, you must try. The spuds are not French fries like you have ever had, they are sliced whole round potato pieces drenched in a batter and then deep fried. Wonderful.

Went here with the family after a day at the beach. The food was good. The service was great. The heat in this place was unbearable. At 7 at night I was sweating my keister off. Turn on the a/c and this would be a 5 star rating.

The food variety is good - many choices and the food was good. I would've rated this restaurant higher but the fact that my feet stuck to the floor to the table as well as under the table made me re-think my choice. Our waitress was very friendly and great at refilling drinks. I get that being close to the... More

We have been coming to Tybee many years. Spanky's has always been one of our favorites. We love the spuds! The staff is friendly, attentive and smiling! You can't go to Tybee and not eat here, you will really be missing out!

Food was good. My husband enjoyed the crab cakes and I loved the fried shrimp. It was hot and fresh. We both liked the horseradish kick the cocktail sauce had. Frozen drinks not the best mix, but friendly bartender!
