Living local MacElwees is a favorite place to unwind. Best steaks and seafood in the area, only surpassed by their staff. Marissa is always awesome great personality and doesnt leave you hanging and feeling neglected. Give it a try while on Tybee

The service was meh... but the food was pretty good. I didn't care much for the atmosphere - very generic and crowded - but it was a pretty good meal because..well, seafood.

I was a little hesitant to eat here because it wasn't ranked very high. We all had the Shrimp Trio. All three types of shrimp were excellent! Definitely a restaurant to try in Tybee.
