Where to Dine this Easter
A holiday for piety, pastels and painted eggs, Easter is an enjoyable time for all. Families and friends come together this day each year to celebrate and create lasting memories – many of which are shared over a nice mid morning meal. Don’t spoil your holiday by spending it bent over a hot stove. Let someone else worry about the dining plan, so you can focus on what really matters. Put the ease in Easter by brunching it up this Sunday at any one of these fine Tybee eateries.
The Crab Shack
The Crab Shack is an icon in the Lowcountry’s culinary scene. Known for the welcoming atmosphere, picturesque marina views and succulent seafood, The Crab Shack is an excellent choice this Easter for brunch, lunch or dinner. The shack opens promptly at 11:30 am Easter day and will remain open until 9 pm. If local, fresh-caught gifts of the sea are the makings of a holiday meal worth remembering, then make your way to the Crab Shack on Sunday. And while the famous eatery is sure to attract a crowd, there’s no need to make a reservation. The Crab Shack seats more than 700, so there’s plenty of room for you and yours.
Fannie’s On the Beach

Coco’s Sunset Grille
Tybee’s favorite little monkey Coco is excited to spend Easter in the company of his close friends at the eatery of his namesake. And he’d love to see you there too!

Bernie’s Oyster House
If a good, old-fashioned oyster roast is your idea of a satisfying Easter meal, then head to Bernie’s Oyster House on Sunday. Open regular hours, Bernie’s is the place to have oysters any way you like them this holiday. The bivalve bounty is so good, you might even get inspired to start a new tradition. Instead of painting eggs, you can save a few shells and paint some beautiful Easter oysters!
