This place was amazing. Very reasonably priced and was easily the best burger I've had...ever. It was one of their signature burgers (Au Poivre Burger). They also had several local and regional brews which was a plus since we love sampling the local fare. The wait staff was also very friendly and knowledgeable. We will be adding this to our... More

The food was amazing! I had the NOG burger and I am certain it was the best burger I have ever eaten. Our server was very friendly and attentive. It was clear that this is a locals' favorite😊.

A casual and unique place. True old savannah charm and they've tried to hold on to the history here. Excellent selection of beers (as you can imagine), fun atmosphere, good selection of food to select from (salads, sandwiches, seafood, etc.) and a full bar to compliment. I true local feel - not part of the main stream bars - this... More

The bartender was awesome!! She gave great food and beer suggestions. We had a burger, Reuben and fresh homemade onion rings. It's a good place to check out if you like craft beer.

We found this place by accident, the restaurant we were looking for was closed for renovations and a local steered us to the Crystal Beer Parlor. It used to be a speakeasy and the ambiance was true to form. The menu was extensive and the cocktails inventive. Our server (James) was awesome and gave us a lot of tips for... More

This was truly a locals hangout. Many beers, on tap and bottled. The building was a family grocery back in the early 1900s. The new owners have retained the feel of the earlier times while creating a great spot to have a drink and dinner.

My wife and I stopped in for a drink & an appetizer before exploring Savannah more. We were blown away. What a great selection of brews! The place was crowded however we were lucky enough to grab a spot at the bar. Service was great so we ordered our beers and a bowl of the crab soup. Excellent choice! If... More

Okay, we'd read about this place on Tripadvisor so we were hyped. We arrived around 11:30pm, already forty minute wait for a table. We amused ourselves studying the various old papers and photographs along the hallway, we had a great view of outgoing food - a plus. We also wandered into the bar to check out the draft beers -...
