good "go to" place near home. We like to bring out of town guests here for some relatively authentic low country fare. Service is attentive and genuine and they aim to please. Food is always interesting, well prepared and tasty. It's not hard to find, tourists should plugin that GPS and try it. Easy parking as well.

Really nice staff and attentive but unobtrusive service -- and the food was really good. My shrimp and grits was fantastic, the balsamic salmon was succulent, steak was a great piece of meat perfectly cooked. Wasn't wild about the bread chunk thingies at the beginning of the meal but not everybody's perfect! A bit hard to see from the road... More

The name is a play on words - two people opened it so it is the "Two Can" And they can. The food is very good. The tilapia is worth trying. The bread is a good starter. Service is ok but not spectacular. With that change I would give and excellent. That said a solid recommend.

Everything about the restaurant was outstanding, service, food, atmosphere, etc. The price was very reasonable. We would have gone there again if we stayed in the Savannah area another night.

His comment was that he had never had a bad meal there, an unusual comment to make, but he also said it was one of his favorite places to dine in Savannah. The location is convenient to shopping and hotels a was a short drive from where... More

Everything about this restaurant was delightful. The ambiance was wonderful, the food was fantastic, the service terrific. Loved the salad dressing so much that we even bought a bottle to take home. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, and it should be at the top of all visitors' lists of places to eat in Savannah!

If you're more interested in good food and friendly service, without a pretentious atmosphere, then you'll love Toucan's. (The blue cheese steak and dill/ feta tomato soup is terrific! So was the Caesar salad- very fresh and made just right ) We went a second time after canceling reservations at a more posh restaurant and really enjoyed our meal. Our... More

I've lived in Savannah almost my whole life and when people stop me and say "best place in town?" I don't hesitate, I always say Toucan Cafe. Their food is out of this world. EVERYTHING is good. I stay away from Tilapia in general so I can't recommend that but you can't go wrong here. The tomato soup is hands... More
