Service was great once seated, a short wait on Sat night in Feb. Family atmosphere. Grilled chicken salad was huge! Iceberg lettuce (prefer romaine or mixed greens) with a few pieces of cheese but more than enough chicken cooked to perfection and plenty of tomatoes and cucumbers. Nothing fancy but hit the spot when tired of fried food. Served on... More

Visited this past weekend with my family when it was so cold. Wasn't going to order anything at first, since I was full from breakfast, but I was cold, so I ordered a cup of crab stew. I wasn't sure at first how I would like it (I'm not a fan of overly fishy tastes), but this was absolutely delicious... More

We enjoyed the meal, fresh, excellent service;my husband asked for Mahi mahi on top of the pasta which he ordered and my shrimp basket was fresh and enjoyable. The only thing I noticed it the condition of rest rooms in the restaurants on Tybee Island; maybe the start of the season but cleaning is certainly needed in most.

Do not go at prime time. Manager is hostess and bartender. Told us twenty minute wait, but was 35 minutes...island time, I guess. Waited long time for drinks and to order. Had to keep feeding parking meter (expensive...total cost $8). That being said, the food was worth the wait. Big portion of crab dip and enough colorful tortilla chips or... More

We ate here 2 times on our weeks stay in September. Food was very good both times. The chicken strips and spuds are the best . Pretty good cocktails also. A good choice for sure.

From our experience on New Year's Day (surprised they were open), this place should be higher on the list of restaurants. It was well kept-up and the service was fine. Both our meals were good. I had the fried grouper--very tasty--with the dangerously good Spuds chips. The only negative is that the open upper level is not available very often... More

This place is not bad. Food was ok and fairly quick turnaround. Prices were fair, not high. Your usual beer and burger joint food. Good place for the Family. Trendy location right in front of beach. Would definitly come back.

We walked here for a quick snack after the beach. The crab dip and pita chips was great, the chicken strips not so much. We did try the "Tybee Tea" mixed drink which was pretty darn good! Place was clean, service was friendly but slow, especially since it was a weekday in December...
