There’s something about a quirky name that makes us want to try a place, and we are so glad we gave Gerald’s Pig & Shrimp a shot! Serving a tasty mixture of barbecue and seafood, it’s the kind of place you can take your family; everyone will find something that pleases their palate! Inexpensive, extremely casual, and open Thursday through Sunday from 11:30 AM until 8PM, life on Tybee Island would be sadly lacking if this charming roadside grill didn’t exist.
Gerald’s Pig and Shrimp: Located at 1115 US 80 E
Big cities have fast food restaurants on every corner, serving the same over processed food and sugary sodas to overworked and busy families who never know what they are missing until they make a visit to Gerald’s Pig & Shrimp on Tybee Island. Easy to find, this roadside grill could be mistaken for a garage or barn until you take a sniff. The smell of smoky barbecue and deep-fried goodness will have you salivating as you belly up to the rustic bar or grab a seat at one of the metal patio tables dotting the cobblestone ground. Open to the outside on all sides, it is still a great place to visit on a rainy day; sit at the bar and enjoy a refreshing Georgia barbecue meal al fresco!
Although simple, the menu at Gerald’s is also an extensive one, featuring a large selection of Georgia barbecue and sandwiches for the meat eaters in your family. Pork, brisket, and ribs reign supreme on the barbecue side. Also serving the fried seafood we love so much, the shrimp, oysters, and fish taste as if they were just harvested from the sea a few hours before. And if you have a vegetarian in the family, Gerald’s tomato sandwich is just one of many options that will please the stomach without offending their sensibilities. One of our many favorite things about Gerald’s Pig & Shrimp is that they offer food to go as well; order one of their group dishes to go and enjoy it in comfort and style in your Southern Belle Vacation Rentals dining room!
