Glad we found this stop on our way out of town. Extremely comfortable and casual outdoor seating with great food. Had the fish po boy sandwich and the pork and shrimp combo plates. Everything was excellent. Staff and owner were very friendly and helpful.

This place is amazing!! The duck wings are a must try!! Service was fantastic and the food was awesome. It's an open air restaurant but it is full of charm.

This is a hidden treasure on Tybee. There are plenty of food choices for everyone. The barbeque and seafood are both great. It is fairly priced. Only have outside seating but it is under cover.

This little place had some of the flavored and meaty ribs my husband has ever had! He had the sampler which came with a rib, fried shrimp, and brisket. I had the brisket sandwich dipped in aujus. Would definitely recommend this to others!
