We went here on Monday night which is all you can eat mussels. You get a choice of sauce and a side with a bit of garlic bread for dipping. It was excellent t!

Honestly, we're not a high maintenance group, but it's only because of this that no one talked about the restaurant afterward--everyone was too polite to complain. We had a group of eleven professional business colleagues for a staff dinner on a drizzly Wednesday evening. The restaurant was not crowded. The host was even reluctant to seat the group, presumably because... More

Let me start by saying that I would give this restaurant no stars but, trip advisor requires you to leave a rating. My friend and I made a reservation for breakfast/brunch on Sunday morning. We were seated right away by a very nice hostess but the pleasantries end there. We basically never saw our waitress Jordan. The hostess got us... More

My husband and I ate here one night during our honeymoon. It has a very neat atmosphere at the bar and the food was good too.

We have stayed here about 6 times. Our room is always amazing, valet/front service is great and Denise at Rocks on the River was fabulous! I have a gluten allergy and she worked with the chef to make sure my meal was ok. My husband had gumbo and said it was the best he ever had ... I had the... More

the food was very, very good. we had the chicken waffles and steaks. the steaks were very good but a little pricey but I guess that's life nowadays, expensive!. the filet was about as tender a cut as is humanly possible (I guess the cow had something to do with it too). the ambiance is very nice. its certainly a...

I visited Savannah for a bachelorette towards the end of July with a group of 14 girls. Our "big" dinner was to be on Saturday night at Rocks on the River which we'd been looking forward to all day. Once we arrived at the restaurant we were informed by the hostess that there was "no record of our reservations" even... More

A friend recommended Rocks on the River to us because of the great view of the historic waterfront. The shrimp and grits and filet mignon were both excellent, however the cast iron peach cobbler for dessert was not made with fresh peaches (and the restaurant is in Georgia!). The hostesses were great, but our waitress was a little lacking. Great... More

We ate here for our anniversary. Unfortunately they had some menu shortages, so we weren't able to order our first choice entrees, but the server's recommended alternatives did not disappoint. The crab cakes were delicious and made with giant chunks of meat. We were offered complimentary desserts but were too stuffed to capitalize, so they comped a round of drinks... More

The food here was terrific. It is locally owned. Breakfast / brunch looked amazing but we where there on a food tour and had a crab soup that melted in your mouth.
