Macelwees on Tybee Island?

Can anyone tell me anything about this place? I'm here with family and my inlaws' recommendations from a friend were Crab Shack and Macelwees. Which doesn't bode well but I thought I'd ask! Thanks for any help!

  1. I haven't eaten at McElwee's recently, but the last time it was your average serviceable seafood spot.
    The new hot spot is Tybee Island Social Club, in the 1300 block of Butler. Reasonable prices, drink specials ($2 Red Stripe), unusual tacos, etc. They got a write-up in yesterdays paper.
    Topsail out at Tybee Marina on Lazaretto Creek has a very pleasant outdoor bar and tables. Excellent fried seafood, a fish taco made with seared tuna, and some Korean/Asian dishes.
    There's always Huc-a-poos if you're looking for kid-friendly and pizza.

      Savdoug, thanks! We're actually practically right next to Tybee Island Social Club -- we're in a cottage at 12th and Lovell -- and we walked past it yesterday morning on our way to Breakfast Club, which we had gotten a rec from here and did enjoy.
