We have been coming to Speed's Kitchen for at least 30 years, and it has never failed us! Speed's is part of the reason we bought a vacation cottage in Shellman Bluff, where it is located, in northern McIntosh County. The best fried oysters and shrimp in the world! Locally harvested right off the boats. If you prefer grilled, go... More

If it is crowded the food can take quite a long time, but is worth the wait!Fish is whatever was caught that day and shrimp is... More

I have eaten here many times. It is mainly a seafood restaurant. It is closed during the winter. The food is good and the price is good. It is not speedy though as you are informed by several signs scattered around through the various seating areas. The whole flounder will arrive with one side filleted off. The shrimp are good...

Always fresh and friendly. They cook to order so pack your patience. You won't regret it! The owners have always produced great quality food for as many years as I have been going there. Over 25!

What can I say, where else can you get seafood in a mobile home, pay in the kitchen, bring your own booze, and get a stellar country seafood meal. Flounder is on point as is the crab au gratin. Just don't get in a hurry they are on "Bluff Time" if you are looking for a fast meal your feelings... More

This seafood restaurant is a must if you are in the Sapelo River area. The food is fresh, tasty & not too expensive. Their fried oysters are outstanding. They prepare the food as ordered, so it might take a little longer. ,
