Great place for people watching and river traffic. Service was prompt and friendly. Lunch menu was reasonably priced and the food acceptable, however the corned beef in the Ruben was tough. Burger and fries were excellent. Noise from the delivery trucks was annoying, but overall an enjoyable place to have lunch.

We sat outside and enjoyed sangria, wine, and fried green tomatoes like my mom used to make. It was a comfortable and relaxed spot to view the river and people watch. Our server, Anna, was funny and sweet and we enjoyed talking to her.

Highly recommend the Shrimp and Grits. We got the appetizer size and the portion was perfect. If you are really hungry, split another appetizer, our party of 6 got the fried green tomatoes, fried pickles and cup of chowder. All of which were excellent. Great atmosphere and great service!! Highly recommend!

We stopped because of the view, the price, and the fact that they werenoy very busy. We waited a long time for our food and the dish was not even as listed on menu.

While visiting Savannah, we had a late lunch/early dinner. Our server, Shea, was very good. The blackened Mahi Mahi salad was great. My wife enjoyed her teriyaki steak with fries. A street musician played the sax across the road while we ate. Recommended.

We picked this place because we saw it had a patio and we had our dogs. My salmon salad was great, and my partner's burger was ok. The beer selection was somewhat limited. The view of the river and the available people-watching were both nice. The server was nice and did a good job.

Yes to the fried pickles. The grilled shrimp were also above par. Our server, Brandon, was personable and helpful - if we go back, we'll definitely ask to be in his section again. Other employee (white guy, 30 ish, beard - sorry, don't remember his name) was also super nice. Great southern hospitality.

My husband shrimp and grits meal was fabulous; my shrimp boil included corn that was not even heated all the way through, so could not have been part of the actual shrimp boil. I would not bother going again.
