“Not Worth The Price, The Time Or The Effort”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We went with a party of seven. Service was some of the worst in the area. The food was just not up to par. The chicken fingers were small, over priced and the spuds not as many as you use to get pus had to spend them back because they were not crispy. If the grat had not been included, the server, a young gal, would never had been tip. No refills. The table was sticky. The place was not great as Spanky's either. Been a couple times but after this last time, I think it is crossed of my list. I cannot ever recommend it to guests in good faith.

“Better than Spanky's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

yes, this is the old Spanky's and they still serve the chicken tenders with honey and potato spuds like but the atmosphere is definitely more family friendly. On our list of favorites.

“Good fried seafood, average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Marshside has a great location, right on the river. The fried seafood (oysters, shrimp) were very good and seemed fresh. The rest of the meal was fair, but seemed a little pricey for what we got. The service was okay, but could use a little improvement. There is an outside deck that is nice with a small play area for the kids. I would go there again, but only order the fried seafood dishes.

“Great Shrimp!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

My husband and I ate here a few times while on vacation in Jekyll Island recently. The shrimp is fantastic and very fresh. The Brunswick stew was also very good. Reasonably priced, clean, friendly service, and comfortable atmosphere. Nice view of the bay and you can watch the shrimp boats come in which is fun. We will definitely return if we are ever in the area again!
