Duck wings!

The duck wings were amazing! A little spicy, but really flavorful. The housemate chips with bleu cheese were fantastic. The staff was excellent as well.

This place is a find, they not only have great food, but the price is really reasonable. For dinner my wife had the shrimp salad and I had the fried shrimp sandwich with a cup of crab stew. Everything was tasty!

Food is excellent! I have had all of their burgers without ever having a compliant. The fries seem to be hand cut in house making the platter that more enjoyable. My wife has had their vegi burgers and stated it was one of the best she has had. If you get there after 5pm you may have to wait to... More

We decided to stop here for lunch because my husband loves his craft beer. After a 40 minute wait, we were seated. Our waitress was really friendly and the food was excellent. I had a fried flounder sandwich with sweet potato fries - very, very good! My husband enjoyed their beer selections and also enjoyed his veggie burger as well.... More

We managed to score a spot at the bar on a busy Weds night. My wife put our name in at the hostess stand which was understaffed and a little chaotic. Lots of people standing around looking lost or confused. We had the Greek appetizer which was tasty. I had the crab stew, which was great and the gumbo was... More

I visited this place 3 times before it was less than a 40 minute wait to be seated. Waited once to see what the fuss was about and i would not wait again, average service and average food for downtown Savannah.

We're not trendy or cutting edge and don't want to be. There are no tablecloths, no flowers, no mood lighting or New Age music. Your flatware come to you wrapped in a paper napkin. Follks don't dress up to eat here although we've seen the occasional tuxedo before. Among other things, our satisfied customers tell us we've got the best... More

Atmosphere from days gone by (and sorely missed). Extensive beer menu. We only had an appetizer with our drinks but if the rest of the menu is as good as the homemade fries with gargonzola then diners are in for a real treat. Great, relaxed fun in Savannah.

This place is one of the oldest restaurants in Savannah. Always packed and for good reason! The blue chips are a yummy start to a meal, but beware....the burgers are the size of your head and if you do a starter, a burger could be shared. Good fries and rings and the half and half tea is the best! Enjoy!

Crystal Beer Parlor is a great place for a casual meal. It is very popular and busy serving locals and tourists. We ate here twice after busy days sightseeing in Savannah. They serve great burgers, pastrami or turkey rubens, fried shrimp, chicken, french dip, crisp salads, cold beer and much more. Do not miss the peach cobbler! It is made... More
