“Couldn't get in...”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

Manager wouldn't let us even get seated until we finished the drinks we'd bought with us. We were a party of 7... probably would have dropped $300 on crab legs, oysters, and drinks. Manager made a piss-poor choice and was smarmy to boot. Ridiculous "rule" considering EVERY OTHER restaurant/bar/establishment lets patrons walk in with drinks from other places. We opted to go elsewhere.

“Great location, good food!”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Our first visit was great. My wife loves crab legs and ordered the crab leg platter which was 1 1/2 pounds of crab legs and she loved them. I had shrimp and crab cakes which were very good. On our second visit my wife ordered the same thing as the first time we were there. When they delivered our food to the table there was a full crab leg cluster less than the first time. Pretty disappointing. Second visit some of the locals were there drinking and got a little loud. I'm sure we will go back but will ask about the amount of crab legs on the platter.

“Nice atmosphere...thats all”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Nice atmosphere, VERY loud music. Food was pretty good, the waiter I think was high. He also kept forgetting our orders. A bit pricey for what u get.

“Fresh and Casual Seafood”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

We went to StingRays looking for fried shrimp and we weren't disappointed. The batter is light and they were plenty of shrimp on my plate. They were delicious, as were the French fries. Someone else in our party ordered the shrimp and crab cake and she couldn't even finish her food, the crab cake was mammoth. If you are looking for good old fashioned fried fish or shrimp stop in at Sting Rays, I don't think you will be disappointed. The wait staff was courteous and the place is very casual, but a good value for your money.

“A must see in Tybee Island/Savannah!”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

My wife and I stopped here for lunch when we were visiting Savannah and Tybee Island, GA in December, 2013. The restaurant/bar was highly recommended on Tripadvisor and there is a reason why. The food is delicious! We both had the Clay’s Low Country Feast which is a huge platter of seasoned shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn. The portions are huge, but the food is so good that you will find yourself eating every last bite. We were in the area for six days, and this was one of the best meals we ate during our entire trip. Make sure to eat here or you will really be missing out!
