We have been going to Tubby's for longer than we can remember. It's our go-to place for seafood especially the fried shrimp and fried fish fingers. If there is a place that serves better seafood, I want to go there.
We had a great time playing music bingo. Food and service was great. Might become a weekly
On the bluff and across from the shrimp docks in Historic Thunderbolt is where you’ll find Tubby’s – a long time favorite of the locals. Tubby’s can be counted on for good times and great food no matter the time or day. While known for Delicious Fried Shrimp and Signature Fresh Catch, they also offer an array of other menu items. Tubby’s is praised for the freshest available local seafood which comes grilled, fried, blackened, broiled or steamed to perfection. No one will leave hungry after chowing down on one of Tubby’s Tanker sandwiches or tasty homestyle lunch specials. Steaks, pasta and salads round out the menu and the chicken fingers are none other than Spanky’s Original Recipe and served with the lip smakin’ honey dippin' sauce!

About the restaurant and décor: Founded as a humble fishing village, Thunderbolt, just five miles from downtown Savannah, lies along the Wilmington River, part of the Intercoastal Waterway. Its many docks are home to a legion of shrimping trawlers. Tubby's Tank House captures the rustic, carefree atmosphere of a shrimping community, its wooden structure housing a rambling outdoor seating area that often hosts live music and beckons in fine weather.Food & Drinks: The "must" opener is a cup (at least) of the rich, creamy crab stew for which the place is famous. Buffalo shrimp are spot-on. For those more interested in land proteins, there are some chicken specials, a burger and a filet mignon. Vegetarians will find Caesar salad. Many plates are large enough for two. Shrimp and grits and fish and grits come with stone-ground grits; these are also offered at brunch. This is brew fare, although wines are available. We enjoyed a Tybee Blonde from Savannah's Coastal Empire Beer Co. with the buffalo shrimp, and appreciated being able to order a short pour. For dessert, go for the pecan pie. Also located in the Savannah Historic District, 115 E. River St., 912-233-0770.
