Fun, quirky, and a great meal

I did have advanced information on this place- it came up on a list of Top Ten Seafood Places Around Savannah, and my parents ate there the night we joined them on Tybee.

I had the corvair fish with asparagus! Double yum! It is away from all the hectic restaurants by the beach so it was very enjoyable! Get there early as there was a two hour wait, I got there at 6:30. Thanks goodness I was a party of one so I sat at the bar and enjoyed the company! Try it... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant has island written all over it. The dining on the dock was an excellent place to relax and enjoy the food and bay inlet waters. Our group of 8 had everything from appetizers and drinks, shrimp dinners to sandwiches. Service is fast and accommodating especially with children. We have been here before two years ago... More

Conch Fritters and Buffalo Shrimp. The buffalo shrimp was amazing. The best shrimp I have ever had. Sitting on a dock at a picnic table under an umbrella watching the people and the boats come and go. The cold beer was flowing and I did not want to leave. I want to go back now..

The view cannot be beat. We lucked out and were seated right away out on the dock. I got a chicken sandwich and salad and it was really good. My wife got the fried shrimp with mashed potatoes and asparagus- she loved it. The wait staff were friendly and checked up on us often. We enjoyed our food and the... More

This is a small hideaway at the end of the street with an awesome view of the bay waters. We had a cheeseburger and the shrimp poor boy sandwich. Both were tasty and the portions were huge. If you have a phobia of birds, ask to be seated indoors. Service was great!

Good food and good service. Meals included Gumbo, Snow crab, chicken fingers and salad. All were really good except the Chicken fingers which were overcooked. We sat on the deck out back which provided a great view of the river. Great atmosphere. A little pricey for dinner but was worth it. You can't go wrong with the gumbo!

Restaurant has been around a while and has always been a great place to go for fresh cooked seafood and the best view on Tybee for sunset. It is now open for breakfast with several good options and I highly recommend you try an early morning visit.

The food was delicious and they had live music the night we were there. The wait was a little long. I had the maui maui blackened sandwich which was very good. My husband had boiled shrimp.
