My husband and I went in today the first day of Restaurant week at Tybee Island. When we asked our server about it she knew nothing about what Spanky's had to offer. We ordered crab dip and have to say that the dish was less than half full, which was a good thing as it was terrible! There was only... More

Potato spuds? Never had them before. They are great. Dip them in ranch dressing.....yummy! Great location, right on the beach. Their fried seafood has just a light coating on them. Very good.

Spanky's is a decent place to go on Tybee for chicken fingers and fries. Most of the food is pretty average, the drinks are predictable, the beer list is fine, and the service is pretty good. There are tvs showing whatever games are on. It's clean and well kept. You can't go wrong here, but you won't be wowed either.

Waited forever for our food...nothing special, just simple burgers and they took forever. The place was not very busy either, so I don't understand what took so long. And they just let you sit...no one stops by to check if you need anything, or offers an explanation of what is going on. They could have at a minimum offered some... More

We have been to this Spanky's multiple times. Every time we sit in the same seats and have the same server. Our last visit was exactly that, our last visit!! The male server was really nice taking our order then when he brought the food he sat it down without asking if we need anything else and almost literally ran... More

We walked to the restaurant from our hotel, we usually go to CoCo's whenever visiting Tybee but opted to try this one since it was walking distance. The food was very good and the serving was a very decent size. Service is very laid back, as is everything Tybee. The frozen drinks however didn't live up to the $8 price... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local resident. The atmosphere was casual and relaxing -- right on the beach. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. The portions of food were huge. The mushrooms dipped in ranch sauce were a nice treat.

The chicken tenders are probably the best I ever had. Crispy outside and juicy inside. I loved the family friendly environment, mom was with me so that was important. The salad was too limp and should have never been served, but they made it right after I brought it up. Will go again!

Had the Mahi Mahi dinner. Wasn't prepared for the amount of food we were going to get. The salad was piled and falling off the plate. Had the 2 biggest pieces of Mahi I have had anywhere. Large baked potato. Service was good and food was fair priced.

Walked to Spanky's from hotel for lunch.we were seated right away. Our waitress Sarah was very friendly. She kept our drinks full and checked if we needed anything often. We both had burgers. Must say best we have eaten in a long time. Must try mushrooms made fresh. Will definitely eat here again during our stay.
