Our family went to Spanky's after a fun day at the beach. It was nice to be able to go to dinner in our swimsuits while covered in sand. The atmosphere is great! Service was great. I loved the peel and eat shrimp. Hubby didn't care for his chicken fingers, which are usually a fave. He said they tasted like... More

Spent a few days on Tybee Island recently and hit Spanky's the first night out of convenience. Their fried mushrooms appetizer is the best ever, and a very generous portion. All other items ordered by my family were great, in fact so good we came back our last night in town. Good service also.

Nice family atmosphere, and delicious, hand made chicken fingers. The crab dip is another speciality. A baked potato and steak was a welcome change from everything fried, it was very good.

Great food but we wanted 30 mins to get a check to pay our bill. We were finished eating about 25 mi before anyone came to our table to even ask if we needed a refill.. We didn't need one by then. We had to ask a bus person to get out check. When we got our check it took... More

My husband and I ate at this Spanky's Beachside last weekend when we were in Tybee celebrating our anniversary.It was a convenient place to go because it was near to the Georgianne Inn where we were staying. We both ordered the chicken strips, I ordered fries and he got the spuds which they are suppose to be famous for. We... More

My wife and I and my in-laws went there last night. One reason we went there was many of the other places on Tybee were packed. Spanky's wasn't that busy which should have sent me a warning sign but we were hungry. We placed our order and 45 minutes later and after being ignored by our waitress I sought out... More

I had the Veggie Wrap and it was really tasty. Husband had the Chicken Fingers and he was impressed, he thought they would be greasy,... More

We shared a shrimp basket and the loaded quesadilla. Decent bar food. Shrimp was especially good and didn't taste like it was previously frozen. Cool view of ocean. Building could use some sprucing up/renos.

This place is known for its chicken fingers. One person in our group ordered them blackened, they looked great--nice not to have fried food all the time. I had the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp--plenty of shrimp, good flavor. We had stopped earlier in the week for drinks at the bar--nearly deserted in January, but I am sure packed in... More
