Tybee is known for its laid back vibe, natural sand dunes and close proximity to Savannah, one of the country’s premier tourist destinations. For most of its existence, however, the small island on the Atlantic Ocean was not known for its restaurants. Fortunately times have changed. Today’s Tybee Island offers a variety of good restaurants, from casual dives to elegant cafes. On Tybee, seafood is king, with a number of great options for fresh, succulent seafood, including A-J’s Dockside, CoCo’s Sunset Grille, StingRays Restaurant and the Crab Shack. Tybee residents rave about Sundae Café, which has an extensive lunch menu featuring sandwiches, salads and fried seafood, and a lovely, upscale dinner menu with plenty of seafood, steaks, pasta dishes and more. The Tybee Island Social Club boasts an eclectic selection of tacos, seafood and burgers, plus cocktails as unique as the island itself. Those wanting a casual meal with great views will enjoy the atmosphere at the Caribbean-influenced North Beach Bar and Grill on the north side of the island, Fannie’s on the Beach near the Tybee Pier and Pavilion and Marlin Monroes Surfside Grill in the Beachside Colony Resort. The morning crowd (and visitors in need of a quick remedy for a lively Tybee night) will appreciate the Breakfast Club, a staple on the island that has been serving up hearty breakfast fare for more than three decades. So grab your swimsuit, relax and enjoy a day at the beach. Just don’t forget to bring your appetite!
