The shrimp and grits are incredibly delicious!!! Ryan was our server and he was fantastic!!! Our experience was so enjoyable that we went back a second time to order the shrimp and grits and we requested Ryan again. Ryan was friendly and attentive! I highly recommend eating at Rocks on the River and if you want great service, request Ryan!!

Typically, I avoid hotel dining options but Rocks on the River proved the exception. The Bohemian had offered us complimentary breakfast for our stay so we tried it expecting the usual Marriott continental experience. Wow, it was nothing of the sort. The table side service itself was top notch - no crowded lines through a buffet picking through the heated... More

Awesome choices on West Bay Street in Savannah. Shrimp and Grits to die for! The peach cobbler was so fresh with pwefwctly baked peaches. Ambience calming and the view of River Street captivating. Plan for a walk there after eating and buy some art work from local artists. Pricey.

The wedge salad was very good and the dressing was great but not enough of it. The Caymus was excellent as was the scallops and spaetzle. The service was okay. The table was great with a clear view of River Street.

The menu is not that exciting but the food was good, the drinks excellent and the service sparkling. We had two waitresses due to the fact that we moved two tables closer to the river, the... More
