We are regulars to Tybee on the weekends and have stopped for lunch at Spanky's several times. They are known for their chicken fingers and spuds (fried potatoes). We also love their quesadillas. It is a good price for a good lunch at the beach! We have also never had an issue with their service.

A nice welcome and sat quickly. Drink order taken and when they arrived, they were tasty! Salad's, shrimp dinner, scallop dinner were all good and good portion size. With the money.

My daughter were on the island and stopped at Spanky's for lunch. It was not busy at the time we were there. I had the crab patty sandwich & their home fries. Both were good. Service was OK.

Just average food. Their signature potatoes (don't remember what they call them) were way too greasy and the Grouper sandwich was very heavy to eat.

My husband I ate dinner here our second night on Tybee Island. Portions are huge. He had blackened shrimp and couldn't finish it all. I had grilled mahi. Both very good Place wasn't very crowded. Had read that service was poor in other reviews, but when the place is mostly empty, it wasn't an issue.

Excellent shrimp!! Really enjoyed the shrimp platter. Blackened was just right. Baked potato and veggie medley made it great.

I ate at Spanky's on River St in Savannah a year ago and absolutely loved it. The chicken finger sauce was fantastic. So when I saw Spanky's in Tybee this year I stopped in for some of that delicious sauce. I was incredibly disappointed. The service was bad as was the sauce. When I placed my order, I described to...

My family and I were visiting Tybee for my brother's wedding. I have four boys and we were looking for a restaurant that would please everyone. The food was great! I had chicken fingers and spuds. If you choose to eat here, just don't be in a hurry. It does take a while to get your food. I would definitely... More

We should have believed the first review we read . It stated there was plenty of open seating . But it took a long time to be seated. Even after being seated , it took way to long for a drink order and getting food to table. The food was great . That was the best thing about the whole... More
