Good quality food

This is a nice place inside the Georgia Center. Food is good, prices are OK. On special days, make sure you make your reservation in advanced because the place is not too big.

This is a great value, good food, and right on campus of UGA. Menu varies and is award winning I am told. It is an institution that feel more like a good home cooked meal. This is a good alternative to dining at some chain. Try it. I am sure most people would enjoy the experience.

Great price, food, and service, but limited hours. You support students, too. The chicken is excellent on Tuesdays. Pre-game buffet is also excellent, but do not tell anyone! I want to go there for every game.

I've been to the Savannah room several times for work lunches. I always dread it. The menu is very limited—and I really can't eat anything they serve (it's all pretty greasy and unhealthy.) Don't bother if you're vegan or have food allergies. I've gotten fish that's bland, an awkward sandwich that was drenched in ridiculously spicy mayo. I really hate... More

Convenience is #1 and #2. The food was OK; nothing spectacular. For large parties, the service was OK. The soup appetizer arrived after the entree. Maybe a Dawg custom.

I spent some time here with friends and family and truly enjoyed our time together. We didn't have to lift a finger, except to help ourselves to the buffet. The price was reasonable, too.

I enjoyed my solo meal here. Refreshing to be in a restaurant without a blaring television for a change. The wait staff was friendly and responsive. The prices were reasonable and food good.

I have eaten at the Georgia Center many times. Although the Savannah Room is the public restaurant part of the whole complex, the banquet is excellent when it comes to dining for a special occasion For example, we had my wife's 70th birthday party there with about 30 people in attendance. In planning the whole event, I had the assistance... More

Not gourmet, but you can count on a good meal, well prepared, for a realistic price. My friends rave about the frozen strawberry pie. I think it's "ok".

Being hearing impaired a quiet environment is critical, plus adopted daughter is Bolivian and a grad student at UGA so I must focus on her words, so this was a good selection for lunch. Service was very good (Laura), food on the other hand was marginal. Pan-fry trout was very much overcooked and vegetables were ordinary; Turkey Reuben was too... More
