How did I forget to leave a review?! 3 visits in 4 days! Booking our annual trip to tybee tonight I went here to trip advisor to see if there were any new "must try" dining choices added over the past year. And my thoughts...took me right back to Geralds! Cold beer, awesome fresh food, great service. I don't doubt that we will be over at least once a day to hanker our cravings!More

We both ordered the shrimp and pulled pork dinners. Outstanding , fresh shrimp and oh-so-tender pork! The true southern collard greens and cucumber salad were perfect. This is a small, outdoor eatery, with charm galore. Want to sit a while and relax, you can’t do...better than Gerald’s. The restrooms were clean too, always a plus.More

We were there April 4th-14th and they were never opened. We were looking forward to try it because it was within walking distance of the Bay View Villas where we were staying, but, no luck.

We went to Tybee Island for the day when visiting Savannah Ga. While we were there we ate lunch at here. It was delicious. The atmosphere was great. It had that beach open air feel. The restaurant is basically you see what you get with...delicious beach food. Their Mango Hot Sauce was HOT but also has a delicious flavor. It was so good we bought some to bring home with us. We would highly recommend this place to eat at.More

We had some of the best fried shrimp and hush puppies we have ever had. Cooked to perfection. The staff was friendly and came by our table several times to make sure we were happy. We will definitely go back.

Went to Gerald's Pig and Shrimp on Tybee island last weekend. Very busy. and like resteraunt, short handed. We were told it may be a longer than usual wait but said we could grab a table and the wait person offered us a drink while...we waited. Sooner than expected the server took out ordered again apologizing for the wait. ( much quicker than had expected and done with a great attitude. I had the shrimp and my wife had oysters. Both of them were cooked to perfection! We would recommend Gerald to everyone for friendly service and excellent food. Also very cold beer!More

No thanks!!! We did not even get to eat here. We arrived early and were turned away because they open at 11:30. We were just going to get a coffee next door. We came back and stepped out of our car at 11:26 and were...told again “we don’t open until 11:30”. It was 11:26! Can we stand outside in the sun rather than sitting in our car?? Too many other options than a place with an angry waitress who was outside smoking a cigarette. Hope she was just having a bad day and isn’t like every day. If so, I’d suggest replacement.More

After repetitive visits, we have never had a bad experience, even when there is high volume in the eatery. My daughter, who attends SCAD, introduced me and now every time we are in town we visit Gerald’s. My daughter lives locally and patronizes weekly. If...only it was open 7 days a week, we would be there every single day! The owner and staff treats you like a long lost friend, never a stranger.More

Whenever I'm in the area (a 30min radius) I'll stop by for food. They have delicious brisket and some of the best shrimp. Fish is fresh and oysters are tasty. I haven't had anything I haven't liked. Great laid back vibe and lovely location. So...glad to see them grow over the years.More

Took an afternoon side trip to Tybee Island (we were staying in Savannah) and stopped here for a late lunch. Neat outdoor seating, with very quick and friendly service. Shrimp Dinner was very Fresh and Tasty, the homemade chili was well prepared, and the Brisket...Sandwich was enjoyable. Had an opportunity to talk to Gerald, the owner, who was a wealth of knowledge about both the Island's and Savannah's history. Nice food and Great Conversation -- well worth the stop!More
