Seated quickly. Bartender brought drinks promptly. Then we waited 30 minutes for someone to take our order, so we left and will not return.

This local business has great food, friendly local people who know the area and are alway willing to give you the inside scoop on things to do while on Tybee. Best Hushpuppies and Bloody Mary's on the Island.
