Got take out from here last week. Had the combo for 2 and it was great. The shrimp were lightly coated and delicious. same with the ribs and brisket, not heavily seasoned but great. Their BBQ sauce was really good but I was disappointed they were out of the hot. The server was friendly and personable ( sorry I forgot... More

We enjoy exploring local establishments and found this one. Service was faster than I had expected. I had a pulled pork sandwich. The taste was ok but I prefer a slightly moist pulled pork and this was wet and mushy. My wife enjoyed her po boy. The atmosphere was great and just what was needed after a long week. The... More

Went there on Sunday evening around 7pm with a party of five. A group left as we were coming in and we took there table. A man behind the bar said they would get the table cleaned quickly. It wasn't quickly and it wasn't very clean afterwards (white plastic shows how clean or not), the wait to get drinks wasn't... More

Gerald's Pig & Shrimp wasn't anything fancy, but that's not why you go there. You go for food that tastes good, and that's what we got. We both ordered fried shrimp, along with hush puppies and fried okra. The hush puppies were hush puppies, and the okra was okay. But the main thing was the shrimp, and the shrimp was... More

Food was good, service was good. The brisket was the best compared to the ribs and pulled pork. The fried shrimp was also pretty good, especially with the cocktail sauce. I would recommend it but don't believe it's a place I would absolutely have to go to again next time I visit.

Open air BBQ joint with a roof over head, and LOTS of things hanging on the support beams to look at! Staff is friendly and attentive, and the BBQ is delish! We LOVED the vibe and feel of the place on our last visit, and tell anyone who will listen to visit this place on a trip to Tybee

Gerald's is a must stop if your visiting Tybee. It is only open Thursday to Sunday. They do take credit cards and take out. The shrimp is very good either fried or sauteed. I had the oysters and enjoyed them as well. The hush puppies are excellent, crunchy on the outside but moist on the inside. The ribs get rwo... More

This is no frills, however really good food and quick service. The kids loved their shrimp and my husband loved the beef brisket and pulled pork! Was a great stop after jet skiing.
