We attended Tubby's for a late lunch (2:oopm). First we waited 10 minutes at the hostess podium before anyone came by to greet us, then we where seated at an out door table. (Very nice veiw- were able to see on of the huge container ships come into port!). Order the hot crab dip - it was amazing! Very good. Should have stopped there. Ordered broiled scallops - they were so dry and over cooked- told waitress for all the good it did. Drank all my tea to swallow them and waitress never came back to refill tea. Husband ordered the shrimp po boy maybe there were six shrimps( and not huge ones at that maybe small to medium size- mostly a bread sandwich! Never saw waitress again till she dropped off the bill. So order a drink and the dip and go somewhere else for the meal.

Tubby's isn't fancy, but if you're looking for fresh seafood at reasonable prices, you'll love it here. The crab cakes are the BEST, and oddly enough, the salad dressings are homemade and absolutely delicious. I'm a blue-cheese salad dressing freak, so I hate it when restaurants serve me a cheap goopy mess that's loaded with too much mayo. This is definitely NOT the case at Tubby's. I don't know what the heck these folks put in their blue-cheese dressing, but it is simply wonderful. Also, save room for dessert. Tubby's features cakes from Savannah Candy Kitchen!

Good prices. Lot's of variety. Busy restaurant but great service. Average price per meal $12-14. Food was hot, delicious and arrived as ordered and everyone served at the same time. Will definitely go back!

My husband and I went to dine at Tubby's yesterday and we were very disappointed. We were looking forward to order the frogmore stew and had read about it in a post on the Savannah Forum and I had looked up the menu to make sure they had it.

We did not have reservations and when we arrived around 6.15 on a Saturday evening the hostess told us it would be about a 30 min wait so we headed to the bar. We didn't even have time to get our drink order before a waitress came and showed us our table, which was a nice surprise. Our waitress was nice and friendly, but we ordered the steamed crab/shrimp and the frogmore stew, they both came with 2 hushpuppies and a corn on the cob. We received the crab and shrimp dish and since we were sharing the food it worked out great. It was good and for $24 it was ok, a little overpriced but we expected it as it's a touristy area. The waitress came back and asked us if we wanted dessert or if we were ready for our check, we told her we were waiting for the frogmore stew and she admitted that she forgot to put in the order.

We weren't in a hurry so it kind of worked out, but we were very disappointed when the food arrived. The only difference between the frogmore stew and the crab/shrim dish was one corn on the cob and 5 tiny pieces of sausages and no potatoes on the plate. The waitress never came back to check on us or the food so we finished it and I tried twice to tell her about the food, but she didn't have time to listen and she never asked how it was. For $29 it's a rip off and you might as well just get the steamed crab/shrimp basket.

I would not recommend this place and will not go back, but for a quick burger or some chicken fingers I am sure this place is ok. It does have a nice patio with view overlooking the river which is nice.
