The staff is great! I've been coming to this place the last 5 years I've been coming to Tybee. I love the shrimp po boy so much I've never got around to trying the BBQ! (maybe next time) Finally got my own bottle of Tybee Sauce! Good stuff.

It was a chilly day and this is an outdoor place but they had a fire pit which made the temperature tolerable. The fried shrimp is excellent!

Great pork, ribs barbeque. Love this place for a quick inexpensive meal. Good but not great sauce (only reason for the 4 stars) but love the smoke

We have to go to Gerald's at least once when we are on Tybee. Otherwise it's not a complete vacation. We ordered low country boil, fried shrimp and ribs. Everything was delicious (as always) and there was plenty of food (as always). The service is very casual, but in the best way possible. It doesn't even feel like you are... More

Recently a group of my fellow retired law enforcement professionals had an event that was in need of a caterer. Gerald, a friend of mine on Tybee Island, provided our lunch meal of barbecue, potatoes salad, cucumber salad, bread and dessert. The food was great, hot and fresh. I strongly suggest if you are in need of a traditional southern... More

Only giving 3 stars instead of 2 because my dining partner had half way decent brisket. I ordered the ribs and they were not even lukewarm. Server was nice but did not offer refills or seem concerned about our food. Incidentally we were the only people dining at the time... which was maybe should have been an indicator of possibly...

We went here on our last day of vacation because it was close to our condo. Seating was outside and it was an old coastal bar setting. Food was mediocre at best. Pulled Pork was so fat and tough it was hard to eat. Shrimp poor boy was okay but the coleslaw was a little heavy and shrimp was minimal.... More

Gerald was sitting at the bar as we walk in, he recommended to us what to order. We only wanted a sandwich or something small it was 4:00pm on Sunday. The both of us had a Cuban Sandwich and we shared the french fries. Delish, more than I expected! Be sure and add the homemade mango hot sauce.
