Sandy...wet bathing suit? It's OK at Gerald's Pig & Shrimp! Casual outdoor dining is just the thing in this family friendly restaurant. Tasty BBQ and shrimp are the specialties. And so easy to find...with off-street parking available.

We stopped here after visiting the light house. The food was delicious, we had the pork and shrimp dinner, the pork was tender and delicious and the shrimp was lightly breaded, you could also have it boiled or sauté. The place is outside, with tables streetside and under cover. The place is fun, casual, and the staff is great.

This place has good food and it's a lively settings. Toilet access not good and ser¿ice can be slow but food quality is excellent and ribs are better than Old School Diner!

We have finally found a place that makes quality casual food on Tybee. Everything else on that island is garbage compared to other coastal areas. The jalapeño hushpuppies were to die for. Home ease tartar sauce was some of the best I've had. The BBQ is better than Wiley's (a favorite of ours) and the vibe/atmosphere is perfect.

Food was really good. Barbecue, the brisket and the duck wings (never had had them, and they were delicious) were all great.

If you're visiting Tybee, you should eat here. This has been our best experience by far. The food and service are very good. They have limited hours in the off season, so be sure to check their web site first.

Stopped because it looked interesting and had outdoor dining (It's all outdoor dining!) Exceptional fried shrimp with very light breading; outstanding hush puppies; the low country boil was great! Happy we stopped.

The staff is great! I've been coming to this place the last 5 years I've been coming to Tybee. I love the shrimp po boy so much I've never got around to trying the BBQ! (maybe next time) Finally got my own bottle of Tybee Sauce! Good stuff.

It was a chilly day and this is an outdoor place but they had a fire pit which made the temperature tolerable. The fried shrimp is excellent!

Great pork, ribs barbeque. Love this place for a quick inexpensive meal. Good but not great sauce (only reason for the 4 stars) but love the smoke
