Overpriced for portions of food served. Waiter was great but was serving everyone. Very hot outside and only some fans were working.

We had lunch on a very hot day and enjoyed every minute of our stay thanks to the kind service and delicious food. This place is the epitome of laid back. The BBQ was tender, light on smoke, and seasoned with salt and pepper. The sauces, particularly the spicy mango, we're the perfect accompaniments - along with the cold beer. Highly recommended.

Gerald's is the kind of low-key place you hope to stumble upon. It is on the main strip coming into Tybee. Outdoor only dining (or take-out) under a pavillion. BBQ and fried seafood with full bar. The owner was present and was a pleasure to talk with. The food was an A+. Our family shared a platter that had many options to try. The shrimp and oysters were outstanding!

My family just ate at Gerald's after enjoying some beach time on Tybee Island. It was the perfect way to end the day! The kids ate off the children's menu, and our son declared the chicken fingers the best he'd ever had (and he's a connoisseur of chicken fingers). My husband and I shared the peel and eat shrimp and ribs. Delicious! The ribs were flavored just right, the sauce is really great. And the shrimp were fresh! I love the casual/cool atmosphere.This is THE place to go on Tybee Island!
