It might be winter, but that’s no reason to stay away from Tybee Island this January, especially when all the restaurants are getting ready for the second annual Tybee Restaurant Week, which kicks off Friday, January 16.
If Tybee’s beaches didn’t convince you to visit the island, then maybe these deals will. All kinds of restaurants – from Sundae Café, Sting Ray’s and A-J’s Dockside, to Lighthouse Pizza and Tybee Island Social Club – will be offering a three-course prix fixe dinner menu for $25 to $30 per person.
“It’s such a great opportunity to visit your favorite beach and see what’s new on Tybee,” said Sara Lane, the director of Visit Tybee. “The island’s chefs are always experimenting with new menu items and working on creative food concepts. And it’s the best deal all year – $25 for a delicious three-course dinner with beach town ambiance – it doesn’t get any better than that!”
From January 16 – 25, 11 restaurants on Tybee Island will offer special menus with their favorite dishes customers can choose for a set price. The event, which kicked off last year, has been a way to show off some of great fare on the island.
“Tybee is always looking for creative ways to celebrate its unique culinary scene,” said Lane. “In the fall of 2013, it was decided that Tybee needed a special ‘foodie’ event to showoff the burgeoning culinary scene on the island and Tybee Island Restaurant Week was born.”
This year, Bernie’s Oyster House and 80 East Gastropub, the newest venture for the partners of the award-winning Sundae Café, joined the line-up to show off some of their food and invite guests in for a special meal before things get busy in the next few months.
“The best part about Restaurant Week is it gives folks an opportunity to check out some of their favorite Tybee restaurants and discover a few new favorites before the spring and summer crowds hit the beach,” said Lane.
Rock House, Spanky’s, North Beach Bar and Grill and Coco’s Sunset Grille, who all participated in restaurant week last year, have also joined in once again and will each have their own special menu for the week.
“Tybee Restaurant Week is the perfect excuse to visit your favorite beach and dine on delicious island cuisine,” said Tracy McMahon, the owner of Coco’s Sunset Grille. “There are super talented chefs here on Tybee that are getting creative with delicious new menu options guests are sure to enjoy.”
The City of Tybee is even offering complimentary parking after 5 p.m., so no one has a reason not to go.
And don’t forget about Savannah Restaurant Week, which begins on January 23 and ends February 1, because some of the best Savannah restaurants will come together to give guests their most delicious meals for a great deal.
