Flying Fish between Savannah and Tybee

My husband and I stopped here for lunch after having read some positive mentions here on this board. The place was empty on a late-June Wednesday just before noon and only two other parties came in while we were there, which was surprising as the place was very pleasant, seems to be well-located, and the prices were reasonable. There's a large covered outdoor eating area that we would have sat on if it hadn't been 90 degrees and 90% humidity.
I'm not a huge fried food eater, but this was clearly a fried seafood place so I went for fried shrimp. It was really excellent -- very lightly battered, fried perfectly. I ate the entire generous portion. My husband had the clams, which were also excellent -- I wish I'd ordered a portion for myself! The cole slaw was delicious, and the cocktail sauce appeared to be homemade.
The french fries, OTOH, seemed to be Sysco-standard frozen ripple-cut fries. Not worth eating. The hush puppies were nothing to write home about and may have been frozen, too, for all I could tell. I didn't care because I got plenty full on the shrimp and cole slaw, but I thought I'd mention it in case such things are important to others.
Definitely worth a visit if you're looking for fried seafood between Savannah and Tybee.
