This seafood restaurant is a must if you are in the Sapelo River area. The food is fresh, tasty & not too expensive. Their fried oysters are outstanding. They prepare the food as ordered, so it might take a little longer. ,

The title used be posted on their menu, get the shrimp, you will not be disappointed, the scallops tasted like iodine this time, but the shrimp, oysters and fish were excellent.

My wife ordered fried shrimp which was perfectly cooked, fresh and a huge portion. I had the crab au graten. Although it tasted fine it was a little light on crab an heavy on filler. Overall great, enjoyable evening. Very friendly staff and be prepared to go right into the kitchen to pay the cook when you're done. Although the... More

While staying at Shellman Bluff on a fishing vacation we dined at Speed's Kitchen two times. The staff was delightful and accommodating. The atmosphere was "down home" and casual. The food was good. The prices were more than reasonable. We left full and happy with our experience at this small-town restaurant.

Excellent seafood! It may be a little difficult to find and it is a little out of the way, but well worth the effort. Some items take a little longer to prepare, but they tell you that ahead of time. I have found everything on the menu to be very good.

So the name is the opposite of this place...it is not in any way "Speedy". With that in mind, the food is completely worth the wait. The scallops were the best I have ever had. Juicy, moist...just amazing. The crab au gratin was tasty too. Our waitress was really great, making sure we had enough drinks, coleslaw, and crackers while... More

Consistently, Speeds has some of the best seafood in the area. Although the name is Speeds, each meal is made when ordered so there is always a wait. BYOB! It might be hard to find but just ask a local and they will point you to it. Enjoy!

First, the good. Sherry, our waitress was great. You can bring your own beer and wine without a corkage fee. The fried shrimp looked amazing, even though no one at our table ordered them. They had fresh trout and it was delicious. Hush puppies were great. The not so good.....crab au gratin was mushy, no lump crab meat at all.... More

First tip: Go. You won't regret it. As you see in all the other reviews, the building isn't fancy. Well, ok, it's a dump. If you happen to arrive before it's open, you might even think it is premanently closed. But don't give up. Second tip: Yes, the address says Townsend. But Townsend is 15 miles away on the other...
