Best Dinner

Filet Mignon and Oysters Rockafeller, grilled shrimp, Malbec Wine. Superb... Make reservations. We stayed at the Surf Song B&B and this restaurant was highly recommended. It did not disappoint.

There's a reason this place is ranked #1 in Tybee. I has the best/unique shrimp and grits I've ever had. My wife had the surf and turf which was also amazing. It's a very small restaurant that takes reservations...make one and go enjoy the wonderful food!!!

Outstanding service, food and atmosphere. You'd never expect this place to be what it is by simply looking at it from the outside. Don't waiver! Go in and experience a fantastic meal for a great value.

Sundae Cafe is great for just about any meal or snack. Located on Tybee, and should not be missed. The place is small and sometimes you may need to wait for a table. Reservations are suggested, that will make your wait shorter. But,wait or not, it is worth the wait. Everything on the menu and or the specials is worth... More

After one poor and one mediocre dinner in Tybee Island, my wife and I tried Sundae Cafe. Our faith in restaurants was restored. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. You need a reservation which is understandable. Really enjoyed our stop there; would definitely eat there again. Nice place

My companion and I ate two meals at the Sundae Café and were delighted to have eaten there. The place is not very large and is located in a strip mall with limited parking. When I pulled up I saw that I was parked in an ATM only slot, but one of the employees said to stay put. Then suddenly... More

Upon our arrival, we asked some of the people leaving how the food was here. One southern lady drawled, "Honey, this is where Taaahbee (Tybee) eats!" So we knew we were in the right place! The food was amazing! I had the catch of the day (grouper) with fries and cole slaw. My friends tried the club sandwich, crab cake... More
