Good Food

The food and the service was good. I had the catfish and it came out quick. The prices are reasonable. I recommend this restaurant.

Waiting until you are hungry and then looking for a restaurant never turns out right. After leaving Savannah, my wife and I stopped at Carey Hillard's on the way home. It came up with some okay reviews so we though we'd give it a try. If you check out the lunch menu, most items are not high on the healthy... More

When asked about area restaurants, our hotel clerk referred us to Carey Hilliard's Restaurant. I would also recommend this restaurant to people visiting the area. We ordered seafood during our first visit and it was delicious. The service was excellent (both times) and the waitress visited our table at perfect intervals. On our first visit, my wife and I ordered... More

I had the $5 BBQ sandwich with fries and tea for lunch at the bar. Excellent lunch and super service. Menu has everything from BBQ to seafood. I highly recommend as a local eating place

Carey Hilliard's offers a variety of seafood dishes that our area is famous for. The BBQ is also excellent. My favorite lunch is the shaved ham club sandwich with fries. Great food reasonable price.

When we got to our hotel we ask where there's a good place to eat with down home cooking & this is the place! You can get fried or grilled food & there's a good selection.

Whenever we are in Savannah, we head to Carey Hilliards in Garden City. Great service and great food. Best shrimp salad, best onion rings, and best crab stew anywhere!! We have never had a bad meal there. Only downfall is that is you are of any overweight size, some of the booths are too tight.

The onion rings were actually good, but the fried shrimp were too heavily breaded, and were flavorless. Ditto for the hush puppies. The fried scallops were flavorless and rubbery. Think fried chewing gum here. The entire beer menu consisted of three domestic offerings, all from the same company. No imports, and no domestic choices, really. Next time I'll drive the... More

We had reservations for a restaurant that closed the day before we arrived. We searched and saw the good rating here. We tried it out. The service was awkward as the original server left us and was replaced without telling us what happened. The restaurant looks like it has not changed since the 60s. We started with onion rings. These... More

Someone said that this is Southern BBQ, and we went. Honestly, I'd rather buy a chicken breast and pour sauce on it at home. Uninspired, not terribly clean, the staff appeared friendly but was mentally un-engaged. I'm not going back. There are much better options in the Savannah area, including Babe's which I reviewed too.
