“Great food, poor service”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We walked in & asked if we could sit at the bar - big mistake. The lady working the bar was rude and forgot part of our order. When we reminded her that we ordered another drink, she acted like we were bothering her. Part of our group actually walked out because of her. The food and beverages were very good. When we met up with some friends that were sitting at the outside tables, those servers were great. If you go, don't sit at the bar - sit at a table; you'll get much better service.

“Over an hour for our apps”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Maybe I am being critical after all it is the holiday weekend and our waitress was really nice so I Bumped up the review just on her account. But the skinny here was we waited over an hour for fannies chips with beans and it mostly looked like a salad with a few chips sprinkles in so for $9 it's not worth it. It did Finally come out about 3 min before our food at this point we where so hungry we did not care. The food was nothing to write home about just beachy and casual. After being there two hours or more we vowed never to go back.

“Best food on the beach!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

This was our second visit to Fannie's and we loved it just as much the second time as the first. The only complaint would be that we had to wait quite a bit on our food, but it was worth the wait! Best fish tacos EVER!

“Typical Tybee Fare”
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.
