Great Food and Service!

We are here on a recommendation from a friend. We were greeted and sat promptly. I ordered the grilled shrimp with crab cakes platter. The food was great! Our server was attentive. I will eat here again if given the opportunity.

Had a nice lunch at Spanky's during my recent visit to Tybee Island. The menu has a varied selection and the server was excellent. Spanky's is just across the public parking area from the beach so the location is great for a good, quick meal during a beach day.

Skylar is friendly and attentive. Crab dip is good but not excellent. Cold draft beers and good portions for the prices.

I liked Spanky's a lot. It is next to the beach, although the parking lot obscures most of the view, but it's conveniently located. I got the fried shrimp platter for $16 and my wife got the fried scallops for $17.25. Both dinners came with twice-baked potatoes, and salad or steamed veggies. There was enough food for each of us... More

They were all good, reasonably priced and clean bathrooms. Nice view of the parking lot in front of the ocean, but can see some of the pier.

This was a very crowded indoor/outdoor bar restaurant. A one man guitar singer was on sight. He was pretty good. Once we were finally seated the waitress was on top of things and very nice. Our son's fish came very under cooked and we had to send it back. The waitress said that they had a new summer crew of... More

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 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.
