Uniquely Good Tybee Island Restaurants

The Deck Beach Bar and Kitchen is the only beachfront restaurant on the entire island. Therefore, you can take in stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean while enjoying made-from-scratch dishes that offer a surprising twist on classic beach fare. You can find Sundae Café in one of the most unassuming locations on Tybee. However, the menu is outstanding and focuses on Southern-inspired dishes and homemade deserts. The Original Crab Shack is a one-of-a-kind experience and an island staple. They serve up some of the finest fresh crab with a side of sunset marsh views. Chamacos Tacos and Surf is a hip spot serving delicious street tacos and an array of sides. If nothing else, definitely stop by for a cup of their homemade drink mixes. Huc-a-poo’s Bites & Booze is a local favorite that serves slices of pizza bigger than your head and ice-cold beverages.
