Featuring some of the best views on the island, these Back River restaurants capture the essence of Tybee Island dining.
Travelling by boat? Pull right up to the dock located behind A-J’s Dockside Restaurant where you can dine on fantastic eats after a day spent on the water. Tucked away on Tybee Creek, this local favorite offers a vibrant, colorful patio to match the multi-hued sunsets you can watch while indulging in the fresh catch of the day.
As one of the most iconic restaurants on the island, The Crab Shack serves up delicious platters of Lowcountry Boil to its diners on a deck overlooking the marshlands. Known for their catchy (yet true) slogan, “Where the elite eat in their bare feet”, everyone is welcome to pull up a chair, crack some crab and enjoy the river views.
Staying true to the Back River laid-back lifestyle, Coco’s Sunset Grille features amazing Tybee cuisine served with a side of calming sunset views. Climb up to the top deck to enjoy the marsh breeze or pull up a bar stool inside - there’s not a bad view in the house. Watch the sun go down over the marsh and toast to another day spent in paradise!
If outdoor dining is more your style, head next door to Bubba Gumbo’s. Often mistaken for a marina, this hidden Tybee gem blends authentic island charm with scrumptious seafood served fresh off the boats docked in their backyard. You won’t have a hard time finding a dish to try on their menu – it’s all good!
