Crab Stuffed Flounder....excellent. Fried shrimp...excellent. Lynn's favorite...excellent. I could go on and on. We got the same waitress each time. Heather was a sweetheart. On... More

Went to MacElwee's with a group of 8. Everyone pretty much enjoyed their food. I had the snow crab and shrimp platter which was really good, and you get a nice helping of food for $23. (Another guy in our group ordered a similar platter at another restaurant for the same price but got less food.) Husband had raw oysters... More

There was nothing about this place that was memorable. The fried calamari was not fresh and the breading was bland. My husband had Mahi Mahi pasta dish and for a man who cleans his plate, he didn't finish it; which tells me he only ate to satisfy his hunger. I got some sort of sampler platter that I can't remember... More

Cozy, well appointed seafood restaurant with great food and reasonable prices. A very deserving great alternative to the other known and well advertised seafood restaurants on Tybee Island.

This is a small, family friendly restaurant where the food and drink is very good and not pricey. We've never been disappointed here.

Service was very slow. Kids meals were $6 without a drink and were very lite on the food. I got the lite order of flounder. While the fish was good, it was a very small portion for $4 off the full price. We were served 2 tiny hush puppies with the meal that we waited 20 minutes for. The tossed... More

MacElwee's is a nice, quite family friendly place to eat on Tybee that has good food. I've eaten there several times and it is always nice and clean. The food taste good and the service is good, but the price is a little high for me. The only thing negative that I can think of is the parking, but that's... More
