This is a great restaurant with a well rounded menu. They have seating inside and outside. They don't take reservations so you may have to wait. The food was good. Typical for a beach town.

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon. Great view, Ordered the Crab Stew (not impressed) and the dozen Buffalo Wings. They were great. Service was attentive and polite, but slow. Will be going back. Question: Why do they let dogs in?

I recently have been on a Gumbo kick. Big bowl of Gumbo with large chunks. I ordered a small bowl. If you order the large bowl you'd better be hungry. Great outside seating area on inland river, small but cool indoors. Bar is indoors.

First trip to Tybee Island. Our lunch meal on the deck overlooking the bay was great. We both had the Flounder and it was delicious. The staff was efficient and effective.. will return.

Went there for dinner on a recent Sunday night- got there at 7:00 and still had a 2 hour wait. At least you could stop by the bar and get drinks to help pass the time. The food and the waitress were excellent.

I think you would be okay. It’s all one level, and if I remember right, there are no impediments. I would call them to confirm.

Oddly enough I do not recall them having crab claws. They have great conch fritters and crab cakes, but did not have crab claws on the menu.
