Went there for dinner on a recent Sunday night- got there at 7:00 and still had a 2 hour wait. At least you could stop by the bar and get drinks to help pass the time. The food and the waitress were excellent.

We were told THIS was the place to eat. We arrived at 7:15ish. There was already a sign on the door of things they were out of. We were told we could wait at the bar or outside in the waiting area. Both places were so packed that we ended up by the trash can. The wait was unreal. They told us it would be about an hour. An hour and 45 mins later one of the people of our party of four went and asked how much longer. The hostess told her that she had mistakenly called out a wrong number before that should have been ours. Once we finally sat down out side (which was a beautiful view, I will give them that...and Joey-his voice is as smooth as silk!) It took about another 45-mins to an hour for our food to arrive. Once we got our food, the steamed broccoli was cold, the mashed potatoes were lukewarm and had no seasoning whatsoever. Our friend's medium rare steak was very well done. I will say my Corvina was excellent but very spicy. All in all, I was NOT impressed with what ended up being over a 3 hour time for wait and dinner and will not go back when we return to Tybee Island again. Maybe it was an off night for them?

Right on the marsh: with a view of the setting sun; we ate at several places, but the oysters here were the best. Parking is an issue, but go early to park close

Excellent seafood. We have eaten here on several occasions and the food has always been great. You have the object of eating inside or on the dock.

Found this place, and what great spot. Just a great local bar and river side dock to sit and eat some good fresh food. Conch fritters were good, and the sweet potato waffle fries with cinnamon butter should be on the dessert menu, soooooo good. Great spot to sit with friends, have a drink or 3 and some good fries seafood.
