“Consistently great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

I have eaten at McAlwees on all of my 17 trips to Tybee. It is consistently a favorite of my family. We almost always order the 2 lb. crab plate, never a disappointment! The Crab Dip is great! The fried shrimp is consistently good. Sometimes slightly slow food delivery, but worth the wait. Free parking (not available at all restaurants on Tybee) and reasonably priced.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

I enjoyed a good meal at MacElwee's recently. There is not much in the way of atmosphere but the service is friendly and attentive, the food is good, and the prices are fairly reasonable.

“Fried Shrimp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Very pleasant staff, although very busy with large table. The shrimp and slaw and hushpuppies were very good. Baked Potato seemed a little cold but all in all it was good and would definitely come back.

“Do NOT miss this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

This is quite possibly my new favorite restaurant on Tybee. The food was AMAZING, the staff were warm and friendly. Everyone from the bartender to the bus-boy made us feel like VIP. Prices were in line with the atmosphere and cuisine. I will definitely return on my next visit to Tybee

This is actually the first place I stopped. The restaurant has inside as well as outside seating. A friendly staff & be the looks of it does great business.
