“Unique BBQ Joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We ate at Geralds on the 4th of July. Lauren our server, was prompt and friendly. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich. It was delish! (Ask for cole slaw on your sandwich). Others in my party ordered low country boil and fried shrimp. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We will make Geralds our 1st stop on our next trip to beautiful Tybee.

“Not worth the price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Everything would have been better if it wasn't soooo over priced. The staff was very friendly and pleasant, but the food was just ok. The shrimp was fresh and good, the BBQ was ok, the sides were canned and frozen, but portion size and quality was not comparable to the price. All seating was outside which is fine but the flies were unbearable.

Shrimp and BBQ with 2 sides is $17.95 + $2 tea
Will not go back

Food was okay. Definitely priced a little higher than it should be. Won't go out of my way to revisit

“A great place to stop after the beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We went with a party of 8. We had to sit at two tables. They had a good variety of beer but no draft beer. The shrimp were very good and the prices were not too high for the area. The seating is all outside with some under a roof but open and a citronella candle was used for the bugs. Everyone enjoyed the food also. The place is kind of funkey and has a good beachside feel but not on the water.

“terrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We live in savannah and pass by this restaurant on the way to the beach. I "looked" like it might be a good place. Its all window dressing. the entire experience sucked....don't waste your time or money. Service was poor and slow. rude staff. food was marginal to poor. shrimp was no better than frozen out of the box. corn on cob .....I cant believe they tried to pass it off as food.
I try and give fair ratings, also taking into account bad days...but this experience was so bad. Tybee has some great places ....this is NOT one of them.
