I loved the fried shrimp, and I added there Tybee sauce to the shrimp sauce and it was to die for! Great food!

We were recently in Savannah for a commercial shoot and Gerald was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only was he able to accommodate our crazy schedule, he fed our entire crew with a smile and provided a very high quality range of food. Will definitely use him again ! Thanks Gerald :)

This place is what eating at the beach is supposed to be. Shaded out door seating, pet friendly and very low key. The service is great and friendly. The food is fresh and expertly prepared. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich plate with fries. The pork was perfectly smoked with Hickory and served juicy and tender with a sweet sauce complimenting the meat. Fries were fresh cut and hot. I had the "all you can eat" low country boil special. When they say "all you can eat" they really mean it. The platter had to have at least 1 pound+ of shrimp along with fresh red potatoes, smoked sausage and fresh, sweet Golden Queen corn on the cob. The shrimp were local Georgia coast shrimp caught that morning and were cooked perfectly (not overcooked at all). We also ordered a side of hush puppies which are made in house (not frozen). These were sweet and crisp and served hot. We also tried the house made hot sauce and lime aid both of which were extremely good. I highly recommend Gerald's if you like to eat great food in a great outdoor atmosphere with the locals.

Dropped in with our two dogs and were very welcomed by the staff. Both had a pulled pork sandwich, had plenty of meat, we enjoyed our meal and the nice casual outdoor atmosphere and will come back as it looks like a nice place to just chill, with 2 restless dogs we weren't able to do the chillin' part as much as we'd liked. This is a great place to relax on the island, grab a beer and some bbq.

The setting of this place is cool. Hushpuppies tasted freezer burnt. The french fries tasted lile oven cooked, not deep fried. The po boy was tasty and their tybee sauce went well with it.
