Without a reservation, we stopped by. We got the last available table and were so glad. The food was excellent and the wait staff very good. You could tell from the banter that a lot of local residents eat here. I would highly recommend it.

Had the ribeye and it was absolutely delicious. However, the waiter told my guest that the shrimp and grits she ordered wasn't spicy and it had quite a kick so she was unable to have more than a couple. They also forgot our appetizer and I don't think I've ever had a more pretentious waiter. Despite this, I would recommend... More

We ate here on 5/18/15, the food is fantastic! We enjoyed Fire roasted ribeye, the ribeye special, and another entree. Superb taste, this place was our favorite during week stay at Savannah/ Tybee Island. Recommend reservations, they were super busy on week night.

Still by far the very best restaurant on Tybee Island. Pricey, but well worth it. Excellent menu, staff, cuisine. Well worth a try.

Excellent dinner experience, superb service. We had the Oyster Rockefeller for an appetizer, it was delicious. My husband had the Pistachio Crusted Ahi Tuna, it was delicious, perfectly cooked and the sweet potatoes served with it were some of the best I've ever had. I had the Shrimp and Grits, loved it. Very unique and delicious. We will definitely return!

Today is our last day on Tybee Island, and our third meal at Sundae Cafe in one week. Last night I ate the best Flounder I have ever tasted! Today I had the best chicken fingers and sweet potato fries ever. If you are anywhere near Tybee, do yourself a favor and eat here.

We were staying on Tybee in celebration of my mother's 80th birthday.This restaurant did not disappoint. The food was excellent. Each of us ordered something different and we all enjoyed our food tremendously. we started with pear martini's, had fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, I had the crab cake as my entrée and even though I am leery of...

Once I got past the challenge of making a reservation (they are not that helpful!), the meal was worth the hassle! What a terrific meal. The salmon was good, the chicken was good. That shrimp, crab cheesecake appetizer was flawless. And the chocolate peanut butter pie was a perfect end to a perfect meal.

Ask a local for a recommendation and you often get sent to off-beat places. Parking is limited. We were seated right away but waited a long time to have our orders taken. For resort area food, this is reasonable. While the rest of our group had juicy hamburgers, I opted for the pork chops. There was a wonderful, light crust... More
