I have been coming to Tybee Island for many years. Not sure how I missed this gem. Very little seating, especially when there's large groups. Reservations are suggested. My daughter had the flounder and I had the pecan crusted chicken breast. We both enjoyed our...More

The food and service were great. This is a small restaurant off the main strip in Tybee Island. If you are looking for yummy food this place is worth visiting.

This restaurant in an unassuming strip mall was the best food we had on the island! All the locals told us about it, so we had to give it a try. Boy are we glad we did! Make sure to call ahead for a reservation!
