Went here two nights in a row. Both nights we chose from a great selection of craft beers. Tried a bunch of new ones that we loved. The bartenders were very knowledgeable about the beers as well. We ate dinner both nights. Steak salad and crab soup both delicious. My husband liked the cheese steak egg rolls and fish tacos.... More

The Distillery is on the edge of the historic district. I had crab cake sandwich. It was a little dry but ok tasting. There were several beers on tap.

I'll admit it...I'm biased. I used to live near Chesapeake Bay and The Distillery -- owned by a transplanted Maryland family -- has brought the old bay to Savannah. Everything I've ever eaten here is superb and worth the price. The service is friendly, the bathrooms are large and clean, and the menu has a wide selection of dishes. If... More

Slow service, limited food choices - all bar foods and mostly fried, lighting too dim, too many beards and too much flannel.

Our B&B host recommended the Distillery and we are glad he did. We are not drinkers, so were not interested in the various libations, but they were hopping on a Thursday early evening during happy hour and have a large selection. My wife had the burger with carmelized onions, goat cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato and decreed it the best... More

Excellent burger with goat cheese and bacon. Very very good. My wife had the grilled cheese and crab soup. Also tasty. The onion rings were also very tasty. Not out of this world, but very good.

I couldn't wait to get out. My son placed his moon pie order and I waited outside in the fresh air. And I'm a beer drinkier.... More

I was very surprised to find for as many "old taverns" that call Savannah home, no place has a better selection of craft that the relatively new "Distillery." & there menu is phenomenal. Not a bad item on the menu. Hint hint. Please try the fried moon pie. mmmmm

My hubby was looking for craft beer recently when we were visiting Savannah. This place was recommended and It was wonderful. Numerous beers on tap. Bartenders (Doug & Rudy) were very friendly. They had a great looking food menu but we only sampled the pretzels and cheese snack. Wished we would have had more of an appetite! Can't wait to... More
