We have to go to Gerald's at least once when we are on Tybee. Otherwise it's not a complete vacation. We ordered low country boil, fried shrimp and ribs. Everything was delicious (as always) and there was plenty of food (as always). The service is very casual, but in the best way possible. It doesn't even feel like you are... More

Recently a group of my fellow retired law enforcement professionals had an event that was in need of a caterer. Gerald, a friend of mine on Tybee Island, provided our lunch meal of barbecue, potatoes salad, cucumber salad, bread and dessert. The food was great, hot and fresh. I strongly suggest if you are in need of a traditional southern... More

Server was nice but did not offer refills or seem concerned about our food. Incidentally we were the only people dining at the time... which was maybe should have been an indicator of possibly...

Pulled Pork was so fat and tough it was hard to eat. Shrimp poor boy was okay but the coleslaw was a little heavy and shrimp was minimal.... More

Gerald was sitting at the bar as we walk in, he recommended to us what to order. We only wanted a sandwich or something small it was 4:00pm on Sunday. The both of us had a Cuban Sandwich and we shared the french fries. Delish, more than I expected! Be sure and add the homemade mango hot sauce.

Small Open dining area, cooking out of truck type thing, with bbq smokers outside. Very casual. Food served in a basket and styrofoam. Shrimp were pretty good, but oysters were overfried and tasteless. Very disappointing. Green beans were vegetarian and flavored very well. Slaw was ok. Hush puppies were good. Others in party who got bbq meats thought they were... More

We had visited Gerald's before and just had the best meal. The shrimp were cooked perfect and seasoned well. Great customer service. Decided to have Gerald's cater a friends wedding and everyone raved over the food and service. Thanks so much Gerald.
