How it Came to Be

WELCOME!
Your host, Savannah native Gerald Schantz, has a fascinating background. He is a Vietnam-era Navy veteran with a creative side. He expressed his interest in art by becoming a professional stained-glass artisan and owner of Aurora Stained Glass. He also felt the need to pursue an acting career, which led him to perform in local theater productions as well as feature-length films produced in and around the Savannah area.
That theater connection provided him with an opportunity to cater a private party for a famous TV show’s cast and crew. Gerald... ...read more

My husband had a beef brisket sandwich with cucumber salad, my son Gerald had the pulled pork sandwich with fried okra and I had a cheeseburger with fries and okra. My son wanted to eat there because of the name but it was a good decision. Good food, good service. We stopped in on our way back to our hotel after leaving the beach at Tybee island.

Loved this place. I think the brisket was the most tender I’ve ever had, jalapeno hush puppies had just the right amount of heat, and the limeade was delicious. If you’re in Tybee island, stop by. You won’t be sorry.

Casual atmosphere, excellent food, and outstanding service! A short walk from our vacation condo, we stopped here. Open and airy this place just has a beachy feel to it that we loved. Stephen M, our server, was excellent and answered any questions we had about the menu. I went out of my comfort zone and had the Low Country Boil which was delicious and my wife had the pulled pork dinner. Both were very good and well prepared. I would not hesitate to go back to Gerald’s our next time in Tybee.

So so good! Our waitress was wonderful and patient with our kids. The food came out quickly and tasted great. My husband got the peel and eat shrimp and I didn’t hear a peep from him until his container was empty, so we’re going to take it as he loved it too. Outdoor seating, but it is very well shaded and tons of fans going, we didn’t even notice the heat outside. Definitely on our list of spots to hit on our trip next time!

Syopped in for a quick bite to eat before heading home. Oysters and shrimp were fresh as fresh as could be! Service was super friendly and they even had live music on Saturday afternoon. Only disappointment was that they ran out of the homemade mango hot sauce to buy to take home. Cant wait to visit again next time I’m back in Savannah area!

I live around the corner from Gerald’s and eat there at least a few times a month. Gerald and his staff are wonderful, use fresh and local seafood and expertly prepared BBQ, and serve a wonderful meal at a reasonable price. My personal favorites are the fish and chips, BBQ wings, and the Cuban sandwich – but you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Also be sure to get their jalapeno hush puppies – so good!

Wow, the family and I were a little hesitant when we walked up but so very glad we stopped in. Food was awesome. The picky eaters ate everything, while our adventurous child branched out and ate boiled shrimp which he loved. Great place, highly recommend the low country boil. It looks amazing, and tastes even better. The fresh limeade is a really nice way to finish dinner off.

Well well well… what can I say except for FANTASTIC!!! Gerald’s food is not only the absolute best, he is the absolute best as well. I contacted Gerald after researching Tybee Island and reading reviews as I planned a destination wedding without having been there before. I knew I wanted to do something fun for the “rehearsal” dinner and not a traditional restaurant setting. I called Gerald and low and behold he answered!!! We discussed the upcoming event and decided on having a pig roast. It was least to say quite the presentation!!!

Gerald pulled up his restaurant on wheels with all the sides and everything needed for a pig roast BBQ. He went above and beyond to ensure all were fed, full, and happy. I recommend Gerald’s Pig & Shrimp to any and everyone. In fact, if you don’t check him out then shame on you, you are totally missing out.

Not only did he provide the best pig roast ever he also delivered food to us the first evening we were in Tybee for 20 people. The ribs, fried shrimp(his speciality) and all the fixings were loved by all.
