“Basic seafood”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Friendly staff but was disappointed that the only fresh local seafood was the shrimp. Ordered the fried shrimp platter with cheese grits (good, not great) and sweet potato fries (very average). The shrimp were very good (8-10 shrimp) but I thought the menu was pricey for the atmosphere and menu. My platter was $16-$17 without a drink.

“great choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Spent the night in Brunswick on our way home to Florida. Wanted a casual, local place for dinner and a beer. This place was perfect. Food was good, beer was priced right! Wish we lived closer, this would be a regular stop for us.

“Good Enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

A group of us stopped by the Marshside (formerly Spanky's) for lunch on our way to St. Mary's to tour Cumberland Island. The stop was worth it - good service, decent food, plus a nice table out back on the marsh (just watch that the birds don't steal your crackers). The seafood was fresh and well prepared and served hot. The shrimp - believing that they're all local GA caught - are terrific, and one of our group said that the shrimp salad was the best she ever had. My ahi tuna, served nice and rare on a salad, was great. Nothing out of this world, but just great. No, it's not the haute cuisine that you might find at some fancy place... but it's just plain good and reliable seafood, and well worth the price. I would not hesitate to stop back.

“OK place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Great setting. It is right on the water, with a view of the water and the Lady Jane (shrimp boat). The staff was nice, but the food was unremarkable. We haven't gone to a lot of places on Jekyll/Brunswick, but I'd be inclined to explore other options before returning.
