Food was great, portions were excellent, service was fabulous. Ages 8 to 80 can be comfortable and find something they like on the menu. Went slightly later in the evening and was seated right away.

Staff was mediocre, food was good but small portions and pricey. Four of us had water or it would have been well over 100.00. Can't recall the last time I paid 20.00 for a plate of seafood and left hungry. Husands platter was the same way... good but small amount. Won't go again....

The best seafood and the staff is wonderful. We always eat at MacElwee's. Plus we tell anyone traveling to Tybee to have dinner there.

We stopped in for a quick lunch while on Tybee Island. The "famous crab dip" lacked flavor or spice, but came with decent chips. I had the fish tacos, which were good, but the fries were basic/boring. My husband had the shrimp po boy, which ended up being 5 tiny shrimp on a cold sub bun with wilted lettuce and a tomato slice. It had no sauce, no "glue", and no flavor. I'm not familiar with other restaurants on the Island, but I'd give them a try first. On a positive note: parking was free and our waiter did a great job!
