Local Dishes to Pack For a Dreamy Tybee Island Picnic
Picnics are a great way to bring together friends and loved ones. Give your seaside picnic a local twist with dishes from some of Tybee Island’s finest eateries. Here are our picks for a full feast on the beach!
Appetizer – Farm Plate from Tybee Island Social Club
Whet your appetite with a platter of healthy and travel-friendly options from Tybee Island Social Club. Pita bread, sliced carrots and cucumbers, feta cheese, hummus and sliced almonds make this appetizer a delicious and nutritious way to kick off your picnic.
Entree – Salmon BLT from 80 East Gastropub
Seafood-inspired dishes are a must when you’re visiting a coastal town. This classic BLT gets an upgrade with salmon, applewood smoked bacon, arugula and tomato served on toasted sourdough and accompanied by made-in-house crawfish aioli.
Side Dish – Homemade chips and pico de gallo from North Beach Bar and Grill

Thick tortilla chips pair perfectly with made-in-house pico de gallo. This fresh combination is easy to carry along and even easier to eat!
Dessert – Fried Strawberries from CoCo’s Sunset Grille
These crispy, bite-sized strawberries are divine. They make for the perfect end to beachy picnic — no utensils needed and there are plenty to go around!
Drinks – Dirty Monkey from Tybee Time Sports Bar
This beachfront gem offers over 10 kinds of daquiris. We like the Dirty Monkey — a combination of banana and white Russian. The flavors are all fantastic, but the real treat is being able to take your frozen drink to go! Happy picnicking!
