“Um, service was good but I wouldn't go back.”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

So I read good reviews about this place. Great location good service but food was not so good. Prices were ok being that it was right on the beach. It was kind of dirty, old and kind of run down in my opinion. It needs a facelift. And a new menu.

“Wonderful service and food!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

A group of 7 of us ate here twice during our Tybee stay. The restaurant is in a very convenient location, and there was no wait. The servers were fabulous amd friendly both nights, and the food was fresh and tasty. Everyone in our group thought their entree was delicious, from the shrimp to the wings to the quesadillas. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for great service amd top of the line food.

“Worth the wait”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We had to wait over an hour to be seated. We had 6 in our party. Everybody was happy with what they ordered. The staff seemed a little overwelmed.

“Poor service, not so great food for too much money”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

The title pretty much says it all. Won't be going back. Hamburger, fries, 2 side salads and an appetizer fifty bucks? Really?

“Nice rooftop dining.”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We walked over from the beach for lunch. Party of 6 adults. Waited about 15 minutes to be seated rooftop, which was a long time considering there was no one up there and they waited until we walked up before they pushed two tables together. The rooftop area was ill-equipped. The waitress was very nice, but overwhelmed. She had to run downstairs and back up for everything... which is an unpleasant wait for a customer. Investing in an order station & cash register or drink station/condiment station rooftop would be an excellent idea! Crab cake sandwich was pretty good, although I've had much better sauce. The atmosphere was great, and sitting rooftop looking out over the beach is always a winner.
