We love A-J's Dockside and is a must stop for us whenever we are on the Island. The buffalo shrimp is the best I've ever had! Cold beer, delicious food and waterfront relaxation!

Another must eating joint while visiting Tybee. While having supper on the deck you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets. You might want to call ahead of time to make a reservation though. This place is very popular for the food & the sunsets.

Oddly enough I do not recall them having crab claws. They have great conch fritters and crab cakes, but did not have crab claws on the menu.
