AAA Inspector Notes
This area legend, where the elite come to eat in their bare feet (so says the signage) is located at a former fish camp and is comprised of several fish shacks and wood decks sprawling along Tybee Creek. There is a collection of rescued parrots, a cat house for area feral cats, a baby alligator exhibit where guests can take part in feeding, and pirates, lots of pirates. Oh yeah, there is a restaurant as well—one that specializes in local shellfish and a few barbecue items. You'll want to dress down for this place because you're going to get messy. The food, which arrives arranged like a small mountain on a pizza tray, will need to be shucked, peeled or cracked. Dungeness clusters, blue, snow, Alaskan king and stone crab all are available as well as local shrimp, blue-lipped mussels, clams and crayfish. Accompaniments include steamed corn and potatoes. So roll up your sleeves and dig in. Don't forget to save a slice of lemon to rinse you hands afterwards.
