This was our first food stop after arriving on the island. The mako shark tacos were one of the lunch specials. They were amazing. 5 stars for presentation and taste. You get 3 tacos with a fresh pineapple salsa, fried plantains and a side. I was glad I chose the sweet potato fries. Tea was not included with this lunch... More

We booked a kayak trip on Tybee Island and looked at AAA for places to eat. AAA panned the place. We went there for lunch anyway. OMG, it was fantastic. We enjoyed it so much that after we did the kayak thing, we went back there for dinner. White table cloths, candles, etc. It looked like a blue collar place... More

We went past Sundae Cafe thinking it was an ice cream We had dinner here on the recommendation of our condo manager. What a pleasant surprise! A white table cloth restaurant! Wonderful food and terrific service! I asked our waiter a ton of questions and he was a gem! Highly recommend that you do not miss Sundae Cafe!

The Sundae Café is more than excellent for lunch. The sandwiches and specials are very good. The fried green tomato BLT and the grouper sandwich are the best. At night, the prices and the food quality changes. It is still good, but not as good as during the day. It is overpriced at night, but not so during the day.... More

Sundae's has been on the get by list for awhile, but I rarely am in the neighborhood. I stopped in for lunch and the fried shrimp I have heard about for quite awhile now. The Shrimp were as good as they get. As good as Flying Fish. Nice to have two places to get perfect fried shrimp. It's a little... More

Thanks so much dining with us. We are glad that you rated our fried shrimp as all that! We take pride in consistency, preparation, and getting the freshest and best products. Our shrimp come from a local Tybee Shrimp boat, the Agnes Marie, docked in Lazaretto Creek (just under the bridge coming onto the island). We carefully set our rates... More

Have to have lunch at Sundae Cafe each August while on Tybee. Their lunch specials really are special, lots of good food, cooked to perfection at a great price. For us it's a must. The place is always busy around lunch time with as many locals as there are tourists...and with the food, pricing and service, it can't be beat.... More

We appreciate your repeat business! We do have a lot of local fire, police, and other restaurant owners as well that dine here, but everyone is welcomed. Our $10 daily lunch specials are home cooked southern specialties that are made especially for new and regular customers in hopes of return. We are so glad you enjoy them and look forward... More

By far the best food on Tybee Island, no question about it. Service was also top notch. Not sure why they are located in such a small space in a strip mall, they are definitely deserving of a bigger space!

If you're planning on eating here, call ahead of time and book a reservation. I went in one day at around 6pm. They didn't have a table for 8 people. They suggested that I make reservations. So I made reservations for the next day and when we walked in our table was ready. They don't have a kids menu listed... More
