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.

Small Open dining area, cooking out of truck type thing, with bbq smokers outside. Very casual. Food served in a basket and styrofoam.

Others in party who got bbq meats thought they were... More

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.

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!
