A bit of a challenge to find, but everyone is happy to help you find their local treasure. Crab stew was rich and full of crab. Shrimp baskets were full and the beer was cold.

Back next to the river is this place. A lot of atmosphere attracting both locals and tourists. Fried shrimp was excellent. Heard their burgers are really good as well as their grouper sandwiches.

Don't miss their fried shrimp. Great spot in a sleepy scenic fishing village. Full bar and a lot of locals who love to share stories with visitors about this beautiful coastal GA area. Lots of fishermen hangout here during season.

So we drove past Hunters the first time and to be honest...we weren't sure if we wanted to eat there because of the exterior. We drove around the block and decided to go back. We parked across the dirt lane facing the beautiful bluff overlook...More

We just had the good fortune of eating at Hunters Cafe last weekend while visiting our daughter who lives in Savannah. She and her boyfriend travel the back roads looking for good fishing spots. Absolutely loved the place, our favorite of our trip. Can anyone let us know how the place fared through Matthew? We hope the restaurant and all who work and live there are ok. Thanks for any responses.
