Chicken strips...yummy

Do not go at prime time. Manager is hostess and bartender. Told us twenty minute wait, but was 35 minutes...island time, I guess. Waited long time for drinks and to order. Had to keep feeding parking meter (expensive...total cost $8). That being said, the food was worth the wait. Big portion... read more

We ate here 2 times on our weeks stay in September. Food was very good both times. The chicken strips and spuds are the best . Pretty good cocktails also. A good choice for sure.

From our experience on New Year's Day (surprised they were open), this place should be higher on the list of restaurants. It was well kept-up and the service was fine. Both our meals were good. I had the fried grouper--very tasty--with the dangerously good Spuds chips. The only negative is that the open upper level is not available very often... More

This place is not bad. Food was ok and fairly quick turnaround. Prices were fair, not high. Your usual beer and burger joint food. Good place for the Family. Trendy location right in front of beach. Would definitly come back.

We walked here for a quick snack after the beach. The crab dip and pita chips was great, the chicken strips not so much. We did try the "Tybee Tea" mixed drink which was pretty darn good! Place was clean, service was friendly but slow, especially since it was a weekday in December...

Home of the Original Chicken Fingers. Food was “entertaining”. Fun spot to visit. I don't know if the service is better during summer, when there are a lot of tourists but it was a quiet day & waiter left us mostly alone. I did run out of beverage & finished my meal thirsty. I’m not shy so, had it been... More

We've been visiting Spankys for at least 20 years. It has the same charm as the first time we came. It has a wide selection of food choices but wouldn't be considered gourmet. Lots of fried fish, chicken, French fries, etc.
