We were shopping on the south side of Savannah and wanted seafood for lunch. The clerk at the store recommended this restaurant. Good move. We were looking for a local place that had good food. The food was good home cooking style. There was a short lunch menu with about a half dozen lunch specials. We ordered off that. After... More

Stopped in today for a late lunch...we were hungry! Started the meal with a side of onion rings. OH MY GOODNESS... they were perfectly done. The grilled white shrimp as well as the scallops were great. I enjoyed the hush puppies too. The coleslaw had a relish blended in and it added a delightful twist. Servings were plentiful. It's an...

This isn't a place for the health-conscious, though I'm sure you can find a few choices that might qualify (on the broiled side of things). We were visiting family in the local area and know they like eating there, so a group of 9 of us went. The food was very good. At the table there was a variety of... More

We have eaten here about 5 times since arriving in the area this past June/2014. The seafood is good and the fried chicken is the best you can get anywhere. The Brunswick stew and BBQ needs a lot of work. It is the best priced food in the area. Service is always excellent.

After an all day of shopping we decided to get our food to go. We ordered 2 of the specials which was wings, fries and sweet tea. We also placed an order for fried oysters with sweat potato fries and hush puppies and another order of fried shrimps with cole slaw and a baked potato. The total was like $40.00... More

Carey Hilliard's was my mother in laws favorite restaurant. We don't have one near us anymore they closed it down. So, when we visited Savannah recently my husband and I went for old time sake. The food is just as good as it has always been.

I was hesitant about trying this restaurant when I saw the exterior. It is an older building and is showing its age. However, the interior was nice and clean, the server was attentive without smothering, and the food was excellent. We are a family of four (youngest is 16) who all ate fried seafood that tasted fresh and wasn’t overpowered... More

This was a going away party for friends at church. There were about 20-25 people at the party. The food was great! They had all kinds of barbecue, fish, chicken and great Brunswick stew. The tea was always coming when you needed and service was not as excellent as we thought we needed but still good.

Every time I go to Savannah I must eat at Carey Hilliards. Fried flounder and fried shrimp. The best. Fast and hot.

Recommended by the hotel clerk for she crab soup, we stopped in. An order of hush-puppies was large and needed the sauce for dipping our server provided. They were rather large in size and dry in taste. My husband's salad was fine. Our crab stews were large enough for a meal and fine but not fabulous. The decor was old... More
