Fish today, tomorrow the rest

Simply great food, imaginatively prepared. Calamari is fresh, not frozen, lightly fried, with a jam dip. Sushi tacos were tangy without losing the taste of the tuna. Entrees: whole flounder was perfectly cooked with a crunch on top and tasty fish underneath. Fried scallops, 8 to an order, were... read more

You would never expect such a fabulous restaurant to be located in a strip mall on a small island. What a find! We were fortunate they could fit us in to their schedule as we did not realize reservations are strongly recommended for dinner. The ambiance was perfect for a "date night", the food was simply amazing. Really...you must try... More

You wouldn't know it at first glance, but this little cafe located in a tiny strip mall hiding behind the gas pumps has all the delicious food and ambiance you could ask for in an island restaurant. We visited with friends for dinner while in Tybee for the Mardi Gras Festival. They were very busy and there was a special... More

We drove by this place 2 times as we were not expecting it to be located inside of what basically is a gas station building, parking is slim to none. That being said we ate here for lunch this past Saturday and had a 5-10 minute wait. The place is decorated nice the food has a little bit of everything.... More

I'm sorry you had a hard time finding us. We are always happy to help if you call and ask. Our location does seem a little congested at times since it's in a strip mall and shared with other businesses. It's great that you only had a short wait and you liked our menu selections. As for Amy, she must... More

Drove by several places that were listed on Trip Advisor before settling on this restaurant for lunch while on the island for the day. You would normally just drive by it but the past reviews were so good, and we now know why! Really good - excellent, fresh seafood. We tried the oysters, shrimp and scallops. We would've returned for... More

Despite requesting a different table when we made reservations, we were seated right by the door on our evening at Sundae's. Not a good table, and one made considerably worse by the periodic blast of cold air that hit us as diners came and went. The hostess told us that the only other table for 2 was already booked, but...

It saddens me to hear about both of your table issues. We always try to give you a better table if we can, and you can request a specific bigger table if you call a couple weeks in advance. The Lobster Mac n cheese has always gotten great reviews and been featured in Magazines. It's supposed to be rich with... More

Food was AMAZING!!! The ingredients in the apps & main courses were brilliantly intertwined. My husband & I were beyond words when leaving this place. A little hole in the wall amongst strip mall renters, this gem was compatible to 5th Ave., NYC cuisine. Atmosphere was romantic/cozy... Service was attentive, but not overly rushed. An absolute MUST TRY when visiting... More

The Sundae Cafe is a small restaurant right on Highway 80 on Tybee Island. It is a nice looking room, not posh, but large canvas prints of beach scenes give it an upscale vibe. The staff were super friendly. However, despite visiting on a relatively quiet evening the service was kind of slow. But I had lovely company to pass... More
