We had planned to go to another restaurant nearby for my birthday, but decided to come here instead. We shared an awesome watermelon salad arugula salad with a blueberry balsamic with feta. It was most delicious! I chose shrimp and grits for my entree with sauteed mushrooms and bacon, while my husband chose smoked duck breast over blue grits with... More

Well worth the two mile drive from downtown to visit this small restaurant in a charming neighborhood. Great cocktails, including some house specialties, and a menu that was both imaginative and very well executed. Extremely friendly and efficient staff. An experience not to missed if you are in the Birmingham Alabama area.

Little Savannah's is owned by a married couple (both chefs) that really care about making their customers happy, and you can really tell they enjoy what they are doing. The restaurant has a great, electric/eclectic atmosphere with interesting people. The menu does change and everything I have eaten here has been outstanding. Everything on the menu is fresh, tasty, and... More

I consider myself a foodie, frequenting many of Birmingham's independent restaurants. I hadn't been to Little Savannah in years, so my boyfriend and I decided to do something different for Valentine's. Long story short, the overall experience was a huge disappointment. Actually, it was awful. The choices on the prix fixe menu were not very interesting, and the dishes we... More

My wife and I had never heard of Little Savannah, but found it on the internet and decided to give it a try. We were VERY pleasantly surprised. Service was excellent, the bartender was energetic and entertaining, and the food was creative and enjoyable, and makes heavy use of locally-sourced ingredients. The rib appetizer was perfectly cooked - and had... More

We were recently taken to dinner here by a friend in Birmingham. This is a small family owned restaurant that uses local ingredients when possible. If you want routine meals found in a chain, don't go here. Seating is limited so it would be a good idea to call and get reservations, especially on the weekend. The meals were good... More

Spurred by many positive dining reviews, my wife and I tried Little Savannah for dinner on Saturday evening. We loved the charm of this relatively small restaurant and the friendliness of the hostess and bartender as we enjoyed a cocktail before sitting for dinner. We decided to first share an appetizer of artisan cheeses. This consisted of 4 very small... More
