I am boggled by how highly rated this place is on Tripadvisor, which is my go-to place for (usually reliable) restaurant recommendations. Our visit started off well enough - I love that they have their own parking lot, and our waiter was super friendly. Then came the food.... I ordered the crab stew because it's one if their specialties. The... More

The ambience is nice and the beer selection is great but the food was horrible. We ordered a crab stew it had a nice flavor till we started getting chunks of crab shell. My wife ordered the lamb burger; which was ok; and an order of the red rice. The red rice had no flavor and was worse then rice... More

The food and service was so good that we ate here twice on our short visit. Everything we had was great and the prices were very reasonable. It is located in a beautiful residential area and easy to get to. Another couple staying at the same B&B had also found this place and loved it.

After a busy day along the riverfront, we wanted to stay close to our B & B for the evening and the Crystal Beer Parlor was within walking distance. We were there on a Wednesday evening and it was very busy; obviously a local favorite.The place could be a bit noisy, but we had our meal in the back restaurant... More

Went in on August 22, 2014 to celebrate my brothers birthday. Our server was VIVA! The food was alright. She could not hear my order (though I was sitting the closest to her) when she got everyone else's order correct. She did not hear my appetizer order: blue chips (though we talked about it and she told me "they're delicious").... More

Viva has been a valued member of our Crystal family for over 5 years and has given efficient, friendly service to hundreds if not thousands of our guests. I’ve spoken with Bob, our manager who was on duty that night and he remembers your table vividly. He tells me that you refused to let him bring you something else when... More

Traveling through Savannah.....so glad we stopped here. We were a party of 5, all having different entrees and we all loved our food. Waitress was very friendly, gave us recommendations for the different beers they served and was attentive to see if we needed anything often. This is a great place to get the "flavor of Savannah". Loved the history... More

We arrived at 11:30am and man was that a good idea. About 15 minutes later this place was packed. This made our service quite a bit slow. The food we ordered was fine but nothing awesome about it and it took a long while to get it. We really came here because when I researched and they boasted to have... More

Our servers name was Daniel! Great job! We started out with a cup of crab stew and a side salad. The crab stew is the best I've ever had it's served with Sherry on the side if desired. My better half had the special which was corn beef Ruben, it was sliced perfectly and cooked to perfection! I had the... More
