A couple of weekends ago we had an invitation to visit friends who have a fabulous home just off the beach on Tybee Island. Having only visited Tybee once years ago, I really didn’t know what to expect. To my surprise this thriving beach community had a little bit of everything.
We had dinner at the Tybee Island Fish Camp where the freshly prepared seasonal menu was an absolute delight. Bite after bite of some of the most delicious food I have had, owners Sarah and Kurtis Schumm have a hot, hot, hot dining experience going with this fabulous place! You can expect culinary creations such as smoked duck bruschetta, a lovely turnip soup with duck confit, lobster and shrimp risotto and one of the best salads I’ve every had with butter lettuce and a delicious housemade green goddess dressing. I was in foodie heaven at this place and highly recommend it. To read more go here: http://www.tybeeislandfishcamp.com/
We danced the night away at Nickie’s, a favorite night spot that serves up great libations and wonderful live music. More proof that my new knee is operating just beautifully, thank you!
Sunday brunch found us at the Tybee Island Social Club, also owned by the Schumm’s. What a treat! Live blue grass music and a delicious menu with everything from Southwestern to hamburgers to a chicken biscuit with collard greens and sausage cream gravy. Pure heaven. This unique restaurant has been voted the best place to be on Sunday in the Savannah area and I now know why! More on The Social here: http://www.tybeeislandsocialclub.com/
Plan a weekend and go to Tybee. Our friends, the Crowes, even have a couple of charming properties you can rent. I guarantee they are beautifully decorated and have all the bells and whistles! Here is the website to take a look: http://www.tybeeseaside.com/ There is so much of Tybee we didn’t have time to see, I’m already anxious to return! Thank you Paula and Bob for your awesome hospitality!
