Joe Randall is a culinary rock star. His food is amazing, and watching him prepare each course is a like a giant tease, except one in which the eventual payoff is even better than you imagined. The session we attended was "The Best of the Low Country". It included Crab cakes (Best I've ever had), Fried Green Tomato salad with... More

We attended Chef Joe's event the first night we arrived in Savannah. No one can argue that Chef Joe does not make phenomenal food. You will not go home hungry, and you will want to come back for more. It is that delicious. Where I get hung up (if you want to call it that) is referring this as a... More

Let me preface this review by saying 90% was absolutely my fault. I messed up and arrived Saturday instead of Friday. Mea culpa. But let's start at the beginning, shall we? Got a taxi to go out to Chef Joe's -about 15 bucks plus tip from 1790 inn. Arrive to this very unkempt building in a rough looking part of... More

Chef Randall and his wife, Ms. Barbara, are the best! We booked the lobster class and it was one of the best decisions we made. There was a small class the night we attended, but their table holds up to 20 people at a time. We had lobster cheesecake that was heavenly, baked lobster Savannah and broiled lobster tail. I...

Went for a night of meat! Had veal chops for our appetizer which were ok. Tenderloin for the main course was ok and lamb chops for dessert (best course). Chef repeatedly handled raw meat with bare hands and cross-contaminated most surfaces in his work space. Chef's health is probably not optimal to be doing this type of work and he... More

Imagine a warm, rich appetizer of scallops, shrimp and oysters swimming in a flavor packed parmesan cream sauce, followed with sweet yellow tomatoes on a bed of crisp spring greens lightly covered with a bacon infused dressing...flaky baked flounder filled with a lump crab stuffing drizzled with lemon butter sauce...and light and airy vanilla creme brule with a tease of...

This was the highlight of our trip to Savannah. Chef Joe Randall clearly has years of experience cooking in fine dining restaurants because, besides learning some tips that we will use in the future, we savored the most delicious meal we have possibly ever eaten, consisting of Oysters and Clams Rockefeller, bib lettuce salad with a creamy Italian dressing, prime...
