When we went they had no buns no ribs out of a certain fish. No chicken fingers for the kids. The meal my wife and I got was good but wasn’t worth the price. Felt more like a fast food joint than a sit down...restaurant.More

Very sorry for your experience. We make everything as fresh as we can. There is an :86: board, so before you sat down you can see what we have run out of. From your review I can tell you where there on a Sunday afternoon...More

Dined at Gerald's last night for the first time and we were thrilled. Despite being busy, the service was quick, the Low Country Boil and Oyster Po' Boy hot and delicious, and the wait staff and owner attentive. Highly recommended.

The best jalapeño hush puppies ever. The Tybee homemade sauce was awesome. Ribs and shrimp were delicious and the homemade limeade was great.

I had the fried shrimp dinner with fried okra, coleslaw, and hush puppies. The shrimp and okra were delicious, but the slaw and hush puppies were nothing special.

From the seven year old to the 77 year old, a great meal and a good time was had by all. Don’t leave without trying the ribs and the brisket….or the shrimp!

We visited Gerald’s on our trip to Tybee Island. What a great local find. Gerald stopped by our table and chatted a bit as we waited for our food. When the food arrived, it was perfect temp and portion size. We had the bleu and...brisket panini, the shrimp po boy, the fish po boy and the shrimp appetizer with jalapeño hush puppies. The sides were fried okra, cole slaw, baked beans and the cucumber salad. The crunchy food was crunchy, not greasy, the cole slaw was a beautiful mix of Mayo and vinegar. The musician in the background was the island vibe at the perfect volume to have a conversation, while listening and relaxing. We will definitely be back on our next visit.More
