      I do not live in Savannah but have been there and my FI used to live there for a few years when he was stationed there in the Army. It is my very favorite city, I just love it! So if you have any other questions I would be happy to try and help!

        I live in Savannah. I just did a baby shower at Carlitos. They have a back room that we used. The waiters were NOT friendly and the food was just ok. This was my 3rd or 4th time eating there and the food has always been ok, but the waiters weren't. The only problem is that Carlito's would be the best location for u if u are getting married on Tybee, and want to party downtown. Just a heads up parking is limited and the garage across the street fills up quickly. There are lots that u can pay to park, but they are usually $10.

        I prefer Jalapenos and there is a location on Skidaway Rd which would actually be closer to Tybee and there is better parking. I have never eaten at this location, but I have at their other 2 and the food is always good! They are my favorite mexican place in Savannah. I actually just had Jalapenos last night!

        I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions!

            We had a party at Carlito's a few months back for about 25 people with reservations far in advance. I WOULD NOT recommend!!! We were there over 2 hours still without food. Very slow, poor, poor service. Food OK.

            Jalapeno's is a good option...there is 3 locations around Savannah. Being Cinco da Mayo (free Tequila shots!) may be an issue reserving any Mexican place. IT is VERY VERY CROWDED this day at all Mexican restaurants in Savannah. The one on Whitemarsh island(closest to Tybee) does not have a private room, not sure about the others. There is also Cancun on Wilmington Island (less than 10 minutes from Tybee)....It does have a back room and the food is as good as Jalapenos. Margaritas are tasty! It would probably be a little toned down as compared to Jalapenos.

            Juarez on Broughton st. is a prime location for partying downtown! Food pretty good, drinks great, cheap prices. They have a buffet area downstairs you could probably reserve however I will warn you.....It is a basement and is definitely a far far cry from an upscale atmosphere.

            As for Marlin Monroes, I have lived here over 5 years, have never been there and have never heard any of my friends, coworkers, etc talk about it so I'm guessing this option may not be the best either, I'll see if I can find anything out about it. Let me know if I can be of any help. By the way Tybee does have a shuttle that runs downtown throughout the day but I'm not sure how late.

              I have never heard of Marlin Monroe's. As Turk mentioned in her post, I have never heard anyone talk about it either. My coworkers are always talking about good/new places to eat, so I am sure they would have mentioned it if it was really good.
