“Very chill beach fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2011

Right along North Beach, this is a good spot to grab some food and drinks while at or after going to the beach. The menu is small, but most of it looked tasty. We got the fish bites, which were fried and came with a tasty sauce. Tasted very fresh! The nachos we got were served with a salsa that was more like bruschetta. Not bad, just not quite what we were expecting. Beers are pretty cheap. Although it's right next to the beach, you don't have a view of the water.

Don't worry about dress code here! Plenty of guys without shirts on and no need to dress up. Just casual by the water eating.

“Delicious, casual eating with the ocean as the background music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2011

I had a very good crabcake sandwich (I eat a lot of these, and this one was one of the best ones)'. My husband had a grilled chicken sandwich --also good. The green salad, however, was unusually good--creative caribbean style dressing. This restaurant is very friendly, very casual; it's right on the beach. You can eat outside in your swim suit or inside if it's a cool day. It's right by the lighthouse on Tybee, so it's easy to find. The servers are very friendly; we had a lot of fun talking about the island and food in general!

“Awesome afternoon at North Beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2011

We were visitng the Tybee Island lighthouse and decided to check out the beach while there, when we stumbled upon the North Beach Bar & Grill. The atmosphere is great, the food is even better (I highly recommend the sauteed shrimp - delicious!!). We had lunch on the deck and enjoyed several drinks while people watching and admiring all the pets (very pet-friendly place). Our service was pretty slow but it WAS a 75-degree day in February and they were packed. We didn't have anywhere to be and actually enjoyed having the time to relax and have drinks while we waited for food because we saw the staff working their butts off. I look forward to the next time I can drop by the North Beach bar!

“Not what we expected!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2010

The Atmosphere is cute (carribean theme) and it's on the beach. The entrees were very overpriced considiring it's a shack. We say the entree prices so we got a plantain appetizer and crab cake sandwich. The plaintains were good and the crabcake itself was ok. The worst part is when we found MOLD in the sandwich bread! That to me was shocking!!!
