We were in Savannah for the weekend, and walked from our hotel to River Street for breakfast at Cobblestone Café, a favorite place, only to discover that it had gone out of business. Alas! So, we walked a little further to Rocks on the River, an restaurant at The Bohemian. My companion had eggs with french toast, and I had... More

A friend recommended this restaurant to my boyfriend and me for their shrimp and grits, and we weren't disappointed! We had exactly that, truffle fries (Sooo good), she crab soup, and spaetzle with chicken. The food was great! They also make a mean Moscow mule and Savannah Tea if you're there for some drinks. Our waitress, Denise, was prompt, very... More

If you've been to Savannah (or even if you have't) most of the restaurants along the riverfront are kind of the same... fried seafood, burgers, wings, etc. Which is fine for the most part, but we were looking for something a little more unique. And we found it in Rocks on the River. It's a contemporary take on the normal... More

Yes it's delicious! And it's got a nice little kick to it thanks to the addition of cumin. I was initially skeptical, but def loved it! Atmosphere is great. A little pricey, but in line with the quality.
