I ordered the blackened grouper and it was delicious. We got there early and our server was very nice. My meal was around 33 dollars with 2 beers. Worth it.

After having tried more than one restaurant on Tybee and being sorely disappointed, we were almost ready to give up. Then, we stopped here on the way back from the lighthouse. The staff were friendly and the food was good. The best service on Tybee!

Our car broke down across the street and while waiting for a tow truck we had dinner here. Friendly staff. Grilled grouper was best fish ever! Beautiful plate, everything cooked to perfection! What a wonderful surprise. It's pricey tho
