Nice evening!

I was staying at the hotel next door and noticed that a landmark tavern was just a few feet away. I wandered in a bit late in the evening and settled at the bar for a drink and dinner... And was so Comfortable. Yes, it is dark but the candles are lovely and there is enough light to read the... read more

We went for drinks and appetizers, and to see what all the rave reviews were about. Glancing around the Olde Pink House dining room before we went downstairs, I'm not sure that would have been our cup of tea. But walking down into the tavern was like a different world. Very cozy, romantic feel. All the tables and bar spots... More

Great food and drink. Seems to be a very popular place with live music, relaxed atmosphere. The low ceilings and rustic decor give one the impression of stepping back in time.

I was tired, hot, out of sorts and not the least bit hungry, but my husband was ready to eat and walk back to our hotel. Looking at the menu, I thought, "all this food is too heavy, it's expensive, and I won't get my money's worth." Aren't you glad when you're so wrong? My meal completely changed my perspective...

This place is in the basement of The Old Pink House restaurant and it has the same menu. At 8pm on a Tuesday night it was packed with a nice mice of locals and tourists. The drinks very good and they had a lady playing the piano and singing classic old songs. But the coolest thing about the Planters Tavern... More

Planters Tavern is located in the basement of the Olde Pink House, and it serves substantially the same menu. We decided to have our main meal at lunch, as it was a hot day and the break was welcome. At noon, the place was just picking up, but we were seated quickly, and our server Rick brought cheese straws and... More

We always make a point to drink and eat here every visit to Savannah. Friendly staff from greeter to server. Food is very good - love the cheese sticks.

You can't beat the awesome ambience that this place offers however I was disappointed that the food didn't match that same caliber. Don't get me wrong the food is still very good but not the best I've had in this town of a thousand choices. Still well worth the visit

This little pub located beneath the Pink House has a great atmosphere and great food. The restaurant has a comfortable bar and tables in a colonial setting. Our server, Leslie, was excellent. There were so many things on the menu we wanted that we decided just to order a number of appetizers and left it up to Leslie and the... More

Located in the basement of the Olde Pink House mansion. It feels like you are walking into the past as you make your way down the steps. This piano bar is dimly lit with candles and a working fireplace, great for date night! Very friendly bar with great drinks and food.
