“Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

As soon as we arrived on the island we headed here for lunch. It was a pretty day and we sat upstairs--what's better than an ocean view for lunch!! The menu was what we expected, lots of fried sandwiches and entrees. I had the crab cake sandwich which was delicious. It's not fancy but it's not fast food either. There was one ladies room downstairs and the wait for it was rather long. This place is great for couples, friends, and families.

“It's great beach food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Wife and I ordered crab dip appetizer and chicken fingers and spuds. All of it was really good. Server was excellent. The items were a great value, especially given the location. We will be back and will order the steaks next.

“Um, service was good but I wouldn't go back.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

So I read good reviews about this place. Great location good service but food was not so good. Prices were ok being that it was right on the beach. It was kind of dirty, old and kind of run down in my opinion. It needs a facelift. And a new menu.

“Wonderful service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

A group of 7 of us ate here twice during our Tybee stay. The restaurant is in a very convenient location, and there was no wait. The servers were fabulous amd friendly both nights, and the food was fresh and tasty. Everyone in our group thought their entree was delicious, from the shrimp to the wings to the quesadillas. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for great service amd top of the line food.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We had to wait over an hour to be seated. We had 6 in our party. Everybody was happy with what they ordered. The staff seemed a little overwelmed.
