We had to walk out of another beachside restaurant because of bad service and were so hungry... so we took a chance on Spanky's next-door, and ordered a grouper sandwich from the bar, to go. The price was so reasonable for such a large piece of fish and it was big enough to share. The bartender took our order very... More

Had to wait a bit to get seated,which is a good sign the food is good. We wasn't in the mood for seafood,they had a good selection of non-seafood items to choose from. Boys had grilled cheese,chicken wrap and hamburger,of which all was gobbled up! My husband and I had chicken parm.,which was to die for! If I could give... More

Spanky's was definitely worth the visit. Our teenager only eats chicken fingers when we eat out so we had to come here seeing it their birth place. They were GREAT! The spuds are really good too. I had the Grouper fingers. A little disappointed due to their size; pretty small. I had them grilled. I think the blackened would have... More

We stopped here for lunch. We were seated quickly, but after that the service was really slow. Kids had chicken tenders and spuds, and really enjoyed them. I had the veggie dillas, which were also very good. If you are okay with the waiting the food is worth it.

We ate lunch here while visiting Tybee Island for the day. I ordered grilled mahi mahi and shrimp, which were both good. The service here was very slow, however, which made the experience less enjoyable. As a side note, while watching The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, I could see the restaurant in the background for a short moment... More

This is our second time coming here. There is usually a wait to be seated. They don't allow you to sit upstairs, although they take food up there which is confusing? Also they are rude when you ask to sit up there. The food takes longer than most restaurants in Tybee to come out. But it is worth the wait.... More

The chicken tenders are so good here. They are fall apart tender, and the breading is crispy. Good service as well. This restaurant is located pretty much right beside the beach entrance.

The food was good and the staff very friendly. They had some good selections for those who don't like seafood. Bar drinks mixed well and tasted great.
