This Tybee Island landmark was originally built as a soldier’s mess hall.  It’s been completely restored and preserved for today’s hungry travelers.  It’s pet friendly and has a wonderful, fenced yard.  Guests love that it’s only two blocks to the beach and its marvelous wraparound screen porch with lots of rockers.
