Went on Friday 1/16/15 at 2PM for a late lunch only to find out they don't open until 4PM. We went to a neighboring restaurant, too hungry to wait another 2 hours for lunch. All internet sources stated they were open 11am - 9pm. Other families were having the same experience.

Hi. We closed last week for deep cleaning and maintenance, and reopened Friday, Jan. 16, at 4PM. The poster explaining our annual clean-up must've been taken down. I'm very sorry for the confusion. More

I had the same experience as the last reviewer. I also ordered Scallops Savannah. When my dinner arrived, it looked like a bowl of soup. You could not even see the pasta as there was so much sauce swimming in my dish. After looking for the pasta under the sauce, I couldn't find any scallops. After I asked, they were... More

Oh My Goodness!! What a horrible experience!! I created this dish, and when properly prepared it is righteous. It also has 6 to 8 large deep sea scallops, depending on their size. Or it's supposed to, anyway. When the scallops are overcooked, they shrink. As the person in charge of staff training, this is entirely my fault. I will correct... More

While the service was excellent, I found the food to be somewhat lacking. The Scallops Savannah had very small scallops and very few on the plate (4). The accompanying pasta was loaded with cream sauce, even though I had asked for them to go easy on the sauce. At nearly $25, those were expensive scallops. I will say, though, that... More

There are many better restaurants in Savannah, this one is quite a true "tourist trap". Overpriced and low quality food, the soup had moldy taste, burger was very average, scallops - you can get better ones in am average shopping mall food court. Only beer was good. Service - nothing to write home about, not unfriendly bit also not great.... More

This place makes you feel like you're at home with family. The staff is all extremely friendly and they made sure to accommodate my grandmother who is in a wheelchair. I would go back just because of the staff, but the thing that really makes me want to go back is the food. The best thing is that we all... More
