Food was bad! Crab legs were cold. Crab cakes were all filler with no crabmeat. Service was slow. Order was wrong. I even contacted the company and got no response. Used to eat dinner here a lot back in the day. Boy have things changed! The place is only good for drinks.

We just happen to come across Tubby's Tank House in Thunderbolt, Ga. and stopped in because it looked inviting. We wound up going to Tubby's three times during our stay in nearby Tybee Island. I had the crab stew and a salad and was absolutely delighted by the stew. It was to die for. The second and third time I... More

Our family of 5, including two teenagers, ate here during our recent trip to the coast. I found this place off of trip advisor so I thought we'd give it a try. There was some seating on their outdoor deck with music playing as well as indoor seating. Our food was good, nice size portions. One of my son's got... More

Found this restaurant using the "TV Food Maps" I phone app. Had plenty of parking. Went early, so not really busy. Lots of outdoor sitting and also outdoor bar, besides the indoor bar. All the outdoor chairs are rocking chairs. It's not right on the water, but you can see water between two large buildings across the street. Pet friendly... More

We stayed at a nearby B&B and Tubby's was recommended to us. It was a good choice. A little hard to find, but a good choice. We wanted a light dinner so, we chose a soup-and-salad choice and the fried oyster salad bowl. The soup was a bowl of crab stew, and it was yummy! The fried oysters were fresh... More

We stopped by the outdoor bar to enjoy the weather. Our bartender, Sean, was great. We never had to wait for a drink. He was friendly and gave the atmosphere a good vibe:)

Tubby's was a great local dining place to eat. I especially loved the Potato wedges they have. The variety of seafood they offered was great and also the meal portions were enough to feed you and leave with some for later.

The name of the game here is fried food. I found it hard to find something healthy on the menu and ended up ordering a salad with baked fish that was just okay- mostly greens with fish on top. My dining companions were young adults and they happily scoffed down fried food without regard for calories. They seemed to very... More

Nice experience from start to finish thanks to a good staff. Big menu offers many choices plus daily specials. Buffalo shrimp, fried potatoes and cole slaw made for a filling lunch. Restaurant is very clean and nicely decorated. Huge patio area looked inviting. Lots of free parking.
