Great atmosphere with neat vintage things to look at. Very friendly service. The food was delish!!! The peach cobbler was definitely the highlight. Would absolutely go again next time we are in the area.

We were standing on the corner looking at the menu on the outside corner of the restaurant when a woman pulled up in a mini van and said hey come here, I have something for you...she took out her card and wrote free appetizer on it! We immediately went in and sat at the bar. The front dining area was... More

We went here specifically for their ample selection of IPA beers on draft. We ended up getting their BBQ nachos (we did the "little more than a half plate" and that was HUGE for two people!) and enjoying one of the bar hightops. If we couldn't have nabbed a table at the bar, our wait would have nearly been an... More

We will likely look into this place on another visit to Savannah. There was a great beer selection, and we saw a few things on the menu we'd like to try. The food was delicious, especially the sweet & spicy duck wings. Our server was only ok. While the place was busy, she messed up our order and seemed a... More

My husband and I stopped in to check out the craft beer selection. We were quickly seated and ordered our beer. I was excited about the ability to order the "shorty" of the beer, however, they do not tell you that it is an option for select beers on the menu. One beer that I ordered I couldn't order a...

Like beer? Like good food? Or would you rather go to a chair restaurant that you can go to anywhere? Choice is yours. Crystal Beer exudes what Savannah is about, funky charm and something magical of days gone by, oh yeah, and beer. The food choices are excellent and extensive (try the Greek wings!) the beer list is goes on... More

We went there about 4 pm on a Saturday thinking it would not be crowded - we were wrong - the place was hopping. We waited about 30 minutes for a table (enjoying a beer while waiting). It was worth the wait. The food was very good and the service was even better. Even with the restaurant crowded the service... More

This spot was located close to our hotel and, not wanting to walk far in the rain, we stopped in. Because we walked in off the street, we entered near the bar and followed the signs to the hostess stand. Upon turning the corner, we noticed a large crowd of patrons waiting for tables. The place was packed on a... More

Top notch pub type experience. Great assortment of draft micro brews. Excellent, zesty wings. Friendly service. This is a popular place, so expect a wait at prime lunch and dinner times.
