The aroma of chocolate, sugar and other concoctions will lure you in this awesome place! Once inside you are offered a sample of the best pralines you will ever have in your entire life. By all means, try it! The eye candy in this place will have you drooling. It is not cheap, but then good things do not come... More

While this place has all of the sweet treats of any tourist place, what sets it apart are the pecans. A bag of glazed pecans is reasonably priced and makes a great gift, if you don't eat them yourself.

The icecream was fantastic, with the ultra-fresh cones being made on the spot. It is wonderful to have all the making on display. Crowds constantly flowing through the place, samples constantly being handed out. The lemonade stand has a line always. The history and old fashioned methods are so charming with the candy making. And it is a cool stopping... More

I visited several shops here but this place stood out! We were able to watch candy being made and sample them as well!

Wonderful find on the riverfront. They had just about every kind of candy you could possibly want. Little pricey but nice place to stop to satisfy your sweet craving!

They make much of what you can buy right in front of you. The pecans are the bomb. It's on River Street mixed in with many. many other stores. I'd say it's about 100 yards south of where the Hyatt Hotel's overpass is located. I smells great in there. The specialty items are a little pricey, but being a specialty... More

We visited Savannah (again) with our 8 year old granddaughter. We had a great time. She, of course, LOVED River Street Sweets. She got to pick out each and every piece of candy. Their assortment is HUGE! And of course, we LOVED the pralines. Absolutely the best pralines EVER!!! We will go out of our way traveling just to go... More

First received these (pralines, bear claws & divinity) as a Christmas gift and loved them! Started using them online as my go to gift for friends and family. Had to visit the shop when in Savannah & it did not disappoint! Pralines were warm and melted in your mouth. Bear claws are crazy good & still my fav!

Love this place! They are usually crowded but you don't have to wait long someone is always there to help. I haven't tried anything that I didn't like. If you're in Savannah this is a place you should check out.
