“Best brisket I have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

After visiting the cute little shops on Route 80 we had lunch at Gerald's. I had shrimp and brisket with green beans and coleslaw. Best brisket I have ever had, melted in your mouth. The shrimp was cooked perfectly and the Tybee sauce was amazing. Also, the best Hush Puppies on the island. My friends had the shrimp po boys, they thought they were fantastic. Very friendly staff and the chef showed us the brisket he just took off the grill - a work of art!!!

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Enjoyed the food, the band was playing, storm coming in and we loved it! We arrived just as the storms were coming in and we were worried, but the staff reassured us that it would be fine. Food was best on the island.

“Unique essential Tybee Island Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

When you are on vacation at the beach, this is where you want to eat.
The wait staff couldn't have been more eager to please. The owner looks like he is a refugee of Margaritta Vill.
We went there several times because it was good but our experience was a mixed bag like the reviews.

“Good food & neat place to eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Food was good. The wait was a little long but it may have seemed that way bc I was so hungry! Service was ok. Had to ask for refills of our drinks. Had to swat a few flies away from our food. Will eat here again! The fried shrimp tasted fresh & the pork was good.
