Hmmm. not sure about Rocks, more little pebbles. I understand that the south is a little laid back but he food and drinks took a very long time. I thought it was a one time thing so we tried it again, this time for breakfast and it took just as long. It has a wonder location and snazzy decor but... More

Fried, green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, scallops and alligator pizza. Coupled with Artillery Punch and the molten chocolate lava cake. The evening could not have been more fulfilling. We got good service and the enjoyed the riverfront ambience. I would go back just for seconds on the shrimp and grits. The calamari was not my favorite...I much prefer my calamari... More

This rooftop bar is the perfect place to grab a drink and maybe some hummus and chips. We did it for a light dinner with our two year old and it was hard to keep him entertained since there are no high chairs but we sat at a high top and he watched the boats go by. The food left... More

We visited for Sunday Brunch and all 6 of us enjoyed our meals. The menu seemed a little small at first but I went with the Rocks Benedict and subbed grits for the potatoes. It was great - one of the best brunch meals I've ever had! Our waitress was friendly and attentive and we enjoyed the atmosphere. I'd love... More

You must try the Rocks at Rocks on the River. Rocks is Eggs Benedict and I added grits. Best Eggs Benedict ever. Server Lynsey was very attentive. Highly recommend!

We sat outside and shared the French Toast Benedict. Hot coffee was refreshed frequently. The food was a generous portion and tasty, and our service was good. They were not busy and we had good service.

The food was average at best and our server was apathetic and failed to follow up after our food was delivered. In fact she just disappeared until she brought our check. There are so many delightful places to eat in Savannah, I would NOT waste my time here again.

My food was overly salty. The bisque was great. Staff was great. Beautiful location restaurant decor. Crab pizza was not good at all. So much more potential for the menu for the location! We only had lunch so the dinner menu might have been better. Would only eat there again if I was in a pinch.

Lovely view, but the service was terrible. It rained and they did not remove cushions from the seats outside or place a sign that the cushions were soaking wet. Many ladies sat and were drenched. Very unpleasant. Multiple customers complained and the restaurant still did nothing to warn guests not to sit there. There was very limited seating and none... More
