We had visited Gerald's before and just had the best meal. The shrimp were cooked perfect and seasoned well. Great customer service. Decided to have Gerald's cater a friends wedding and everyone raved over the food and service. Thanks so much Gerald.

The shrimp here is simply delicious,batter just right, also had the okra which was perfect. Hubby had the boiled shrimp,very good, but very difficult to peel took some of the pleasure in the eating,hush puppies great,Shrimp dinner, a side, puppies $15.50 worth the trip to Tybee. A little sweetheart waited on us.

The barbecue was too Bland. The food needed better flavor. The cost was way too much for what is served. You will be disappointed.

You seem to have a different taste than all the other reviewers . And who are you to tell others anything . Why did you not say something when you where in the dining room. I call B S on you. You are a rotten customer, when asked if everything was OK that was your opportunity to have the wait... More

Usually not a huge fan of fried food, but the hush puppies and fried okra at Gerald's are ethereal. I'm pretty sure it has a lot to do with the oil they use. A few pounds of freshly-caught boiled shrimp, hush puppies, fried okra, and cucumber salad...what more is there to say? Personal to Gerald - Cheers from your "favorite... More

We we're on Tybee Island with family for a weekend wedding. I love fried shrimp and had read some reviews about Gerald's Pig & Shrimp, so I wanted to give them a try. We had already gone to another 'well known' local restaurant the night before. I ordered their fried shrimp, but was very disappointed as the shrimp was tough... More

We think the local fried shrimp are the best in town! Gerald catered an event at our home on short notice for about 30 people. Great reviews by all our guest. The food and service was a real treat. Thank you Gerald!

Love the shrimp plater here and the lemonade can't be beat. I love the laid back open walls of this little place. Don't pass this one by.

I can't rave enough about how good the fried shrimp and oysters are at Gerald's. We had a combination platter that included fries and okra. Everything was seasoned and fried to perfection. The tartar sauce and cocktail sauce were freshly made at the stand and I would gladly buy a bottle of both to take home with me if I... More

Intrigued by the name, we stopped in for lunch one afternoon. It was packed - a good sign, I think. I had the fried shrimp and the rest in my party ordered the bar-b-que. We all enjoyed our orders. The service was friendly and fast, and the price was about what you'd expect. I'd go again.
