Party of three stoped in for a quick laid back lunch, and were not disapointed. We all ordered the shrimp poboy's with cucumber salads. The shrimp were not overly breaded and cooked perfection. Everyone was very happy with our choice for lunch and we would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great meal in a relaxed beach atmosphere. If ever in the area again would not hesitate stopping for another meal.

Stopped by in April and met Gerald who was so personable and friendly! The shrimp is incredible. We had the ribs as well and they were done perfectly. Everyone - parents and children - had a great meal and experience.

Was a last minute decision to pull in and eat there. One of the best decisions I have made regarding food in a long time. I had the fried shrimp. I am a coastal Ga. resident, so I speak with some experience and expertise. This is unequivocally the way fried shrimp should be cooked and taste. Delicate, very minimal light breading and plump shrimp...what more could a shrimp fan ask for? The sides were excellent including the cucumber salad and baked beans. I will be returning when I am at Tybee....might just make a trip for a meal at Gerald's. Love the casual, outdoor style eating.

Looks a little scary from the road but so happy we stopped! Absolutely great food!. The shrimp tacos ROCKED! Has a great children's menu. This place is outdoors and has a wonderful beach feel. The owner, a very nice man, was on site and went table to table, chatting with all his customers. My only complaint is the metal chairs were cold and a wee bit snug for the above average sized bottom.

Everyone talks about Geralds so we had to give it a try. We tried the sample plate with barbeque shrimp and ribs. Shrimp was ok. Ribs were meaty but under cooked. The mango sauce was wonderful. You can put it on everything. Fun atmosphere as you sit outside on picnic benches and can visit the local shops after some barbeque.
