“Best place in Tybee!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We've been on Tybee for a week, and after a few days of trekking back to Savannah due to overpriced, mediocre food on the island, we decided to stay close for dinner tonight. This place wasn't too much to look at and kind of empty (due to PriateFest I presume), so we almost passed it up. I am so glad we didn't! Our waitress, Karie, was fantastic!!!! She seemed to be a genuinely happy person and stayed optimistic after hearing our fear of average island food. We ordered the chicken finger baguette with black beans and the TYB burger with green beans and stuck around for the sundae dessert. The chicken fingers looked overcooked to add to my skeptisism, but oh my were they perfect! They weren't the flat frozen kind, but thick and seasoned and breaded wonderfully. The black beans were not your average boring black beans either. My husband usually offers a taste of his food but didn't give me the chance so I assume his burger was good too. Karie gave the perfect amount of attention and even helped us figure out PirateFest events, in an attempt to help us like Tybee more. I doubt Tybee will be our favorite vacation spot, but TYB Grill was definately our favorite place to eat while here.

“don't let the outside fool you, great fish awaits you inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

our waitress was fun, quick and helpful. the food fare is simple, and the prices are low.
wish they had either place mats or table clothes as the tables were a bit tacky (humidity and all).

“LOVE this Place! Excellent Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We enjoyed a week's vacation at Tybee Island with our family, and dined at the TYB Grill twice during that time because we liked it so much--the owners, the waitstaff, the service and the food. The Salad presentation was very fun & unique, in a chilled Margarita glass. The Garlic Pommes Frites are excellent starters [french fries w/EVOO, garlic, parmesan cheese & parsley]. We were impressed with all the Entrees we tried: the TYB Burger, the Surf & Turf Burger, the Veggie Black Bean Burger, the Georgia Shrimp Platter and the Southwest Chicken Quesadilla. They have several specialty Martinis on the menu. The Blue Cheese Stuffed Olive Martini was amazing--by far my favorite, and the Pomegranate is also very good. My 20-something picky eater daughter said after the meal... "The only thing that could make this any better is Cheesecake." And they brought out the best New York Cheesecake! We plan to come back as soon as we can.

“service was great, food was....disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

we went to grab some dinner and we won't go back. The person serving us was thoughtful and attentive, but we can't say many good things about the food. I took the fried oysters out of the po boy and my friend's blackened tilapia on the salad was pretty good but the salad itself was mostly shredded lettuce
