Cool place and environment

Me and my boyfriend went here one night for his birthday and were surprised at the selection of beer they had. They have about 20 or so craft beers on tap that they change out regularly. We did not eat there so I can't say if the food was good. The bartender, Billy, was helpful and friendly for our... read more

A whole page of beer on tap, updated with the on deck beers. The flights are huge, so be prepared if you do that. Rodney, our waiter, was very knowledgeable and did well with our crowd which is not an easy thing to do. Fish and chips were great, hot, big piece of flaky white fish, and fries with malt... More

We went before a tour and it is convenient to the visitor center. The food was okay but the service was terrible. First they forgot silverware then forgot salad dressing, wrong drink and a very long wait for drinks and not many people were in there to begin with. If you are in a rush don't bother - if you...

We stopped at the The Distillery for lunch at the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel and were not disappointed. Our waitress was great, really friendly and knowledgable. On her advice I went for the Rudy or Ruby burger (not quite sure what the name was) and the house special - onion rings. They were all great and washed... More

Went here on recommendation from a tour guide. The food and service were just ok. Waiter didn't refill drinks or clear plates from apps before dinner came out. The burgers looked good but we didn't order. The pizza place that's close by is a better choice, follow your nose.

On our first day touring Savannah, we stopped for lunch with our family of seven. The Distillery is a bar/restaurant, serving lots of craft beers with good food to accompany them. The staff was extremely friendly and our server was very helpful in guiding us to the best food and beer choices. The grilled chicken, burgers, salads were all very... More

We are not quite new to the area, but are still in the process of trying to figure out our favorite spots to eat. We decided to stop in for a late lunch I had the fried green tomato blt which was very good, and my daughter had fish and chips not so great. All of that said our server... More

I had lunch here prior to riding one of the tour trolleys. The location is ideal for this. The food is reasonably priced. You get large portions of everything. The servers are friendly and attentive. The sweet tea is outstanding!!

If you're looking to try some craft beer, this is your place. They had a lot of odd beer. I'm more of a cider/ale/mixed drink person, so I didn't enjoy the drink selection as much as a real beer drinker would. Also, the food was just okay.

This place was great. They have many different beers that are not the off the wall brands. The food was delicious. The waiter we had was great very attentive. The place was very neat on the inside. Well worth the trip to eat there.
