On an island where most of the seafood is fried, an it was here...this was a great meal. The shrimp had a batter so delicate, you almost didn't know it was there! My wife had brisket sandwich and she was very happy as well. The place can get a little busu during the day, so consider that if you are... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to get some fresh seafood on or near Tybee without paying billions of dollars. After looking at several reviews, we settled on Gerald's. The food was average. The fried okra, cucumber salad, and jalepeno hush puppies were delicious. PBRs for less than $2.50 which was all right with me. We shared... More

We were a large a group and had bbq, shrimp, oysters, brisket and duck wings. Food was great. Everyone was happy with their meals. Brisket and cucumber salad were high points. The atmosphere was pure Jimmy Buffet. A satisfying meal and a good time at a price that didn't break the bank.

Sandy...wet bathing suit? It's OK at Gerald's Pig & Shrimp! Casual outdoor dining is just the thing in this family friendly restaurant. Tasty BBQ and shrimp are the specialties. And so easy to find...with off-street parking available.

We stopped here after visiting the light house. The food was delicious, we had the pork and shrimp dinner, the pork was tender and delicious and the shrimp was lightly breaded, you could also have it boiled or sauté. The place is outside, with tables streetside and under cover. The place is fun, casual, and the staff is great.

We have finally found a place that makes quality casual food on Tybee. Everything else on that island is garbage compared to other coastal areas. The jalapeño hushpuppies were to die for. Home ease tartar sauce was some of the best I've had. The BBQ is better than Wiley's (a favorite of ours) and the vibe/atmosphere is perfect.
