“Typical Tybee Fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Ate at Fannies on our first night on the island. We were hungry so anything would have tasted good, Fannies didn't let us down. The food consists mostly of typical fried fare. Fannies did have a selection of salads larger than other restaurants. I had a salad with blackened shrimp and it was good. My husband had the nachos which were not good, so he got a Quesadilla instead, which was just ok.
The kids were happy to see a kids menu and dined on chicken fingers and pizza. Nothing to write home about.

Service was attentive but slow. For a night that it wasn't crowded we waited atleast 35 minutes to get our food.

“Some of the best pizza I ever ate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Their gourmet pizzas are incredible. Get your own, you won't want to share. HA HA The shrimp po-boy is also the bomb!

“Best Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

After so much seafood we wanted RED Meat. Got the best burgers and service was specially great. Cold Beer on a hot day was perfect.

“Great space, great view, disappointing food and service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Fannie's is a location that is longing for a great executive chef and servers that care. The food, though sounding exciting on the menu, is poorly executed. Our recent foray into burgers found them horribly over-cooked and just plain awful- though the size was impressive. We waited over an hour for take out. Another visit on-site was just as disappointing in food and service. Get a to-go frozen margarita from the bar, stroll Tybrisa and the beach, and find another place to eat.

“Tourist trap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Tried this place due to not making reservations at the Sundae Cafe (my preference for the night). Food was common beach fare. My daughter never got her entire order neither did the couple beside of us. Waiter disregarded our needs. They didn't adjust our bill either for the incomplete food order. I had a pizza. It was ok but cold. My husband tried the steak and baked potato (with no butter). It wasn't what you would order at a beachfront place. Fannies caters to the drinkers and younger crowd. Don't take your family there.
