Excellent first dinner in Savannah

We wandered in after checking out the menu since the place wasn't far from our hotel, and we were not let down. Our waiter was excellent, the food was great, and the atmosphere was lovely. My husband loved his shrimp and grits and I really recommend the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer!

We had the signature seafood specials. We were not disappointed. It's expensive but worth going for the food, atmosphere and just plain great time. You won't be disappointed.

We had lunch at the bar and watched the PGA Golf Tournament. Excellent She Crab Soup and a Crab Style Flatbread. Good beer selections also.

After being blown off by an adjoining restaurant, our group of 15 approached the Rocks, in the Bohemian Hotel, River street, Savannah and were greeted with open arms. Because of meeting scheduling we couldn't make the necessary reservations anywhere. They asked for 10 minutes to prepare. They did it in 8. Food was excellent, gave us two servers, even accommodated... More

Came late the first night, Denise guided us into good choices and made the dining experience so fun we came back, not just one more night, but the brunch on Sunday. She encouraged us to try a "Georgia Peach Martini" and Fried green tomatoes with goat cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking of these. Every entrée was great, the... More

Nothing was right, if it was only one missed thing it would have been mediocre at best. Bartender did not know how to serve a bottle of wine! Opened it pour two glasses and asked if I would like to pour them myself or have him do it, it was free to have him do it he stated. Sparkling water... More

Really didn't eat there but sat outside on the river and Kae was our server.. She was so personable that we just wanted to stay. It was the beginning of our day and had a couple of drinks and left to begin our day However with a waitress as nice as she was it made us want to return.

We also waited for at least 10 minutes on the same night before I flagged down the manager and told him our drink order hadn't been taken. The restaurant was less than half full. Shortly thereafter Denise showed up with tap water and asked if we wanted something else to drink. We had already told Nathan that we wanted still... More

We inadvertently visited Savannah during Restaurant Week, and we dined at Rocks on the River that Saturday evening. I understand that sometimes, restaurants get backed up and that prompt service suffers as a result. That can even be okay (especially when things are leisurely, as they were for us on our girls' weekend). Unfortunately, however, our service was also brazen... More
