Doesn't matter what you eat the staff is awesome

Sometimes it's not about finding a restaurant based on food, but atmosphere and staff. We were walking down by the river and we were looking for somewhere to eat and we ended up finding a gem. The food was delicious, of course, my wife had crawfish and I had blackened chicken Caesar wrap. Our... read more

This place looks and smells like a bar (basically because it is a bar that serves food). Hardcore locals in the place. Food was good, but they need to clean up their image.

We loved the Gumbo! My daughter saw that they had authentic New Orleans food on the menu and insisted on stopping there to eat that moment. The food was very good, service was a little slow, but we were in no rush. We went back twice.

I didn't eat here but friends and I had a great night out at the bar. Drinks were good and priced right, plus there was live music and the bartender was cool. Will definitely return.

Not much to look at, but good food had by all 5 of us. We enjoyed watching the boats going by. Wish we could have stayed for the band, just passing through.

This is a smaller venue located on the second floor right on River Street. Beautiful view of the river, very warehouse/rustic atmosphere. Jordan was running the place when we were there, and had a great personality, was very helpful, and provided terrific service. On to the food! The crab and corn chowder was excellent - full of crab - I... More

It looks a little sketchy from the outside, but go on in and give it a try. We tried Crawfish for the first time and loved it! We also loved the crab chowder.

Definitely a "hole in the wall", but worth the stop. Very good food, very good value. Nice friendly staff. This will be a "must stop" for future trips to Savannah.

Had a late lunch, and we weren't hurried out even though we were the last 2 people left and it was past lunchtime. I had a very good fried shrimp basket and cold tap beer. My sister enjoyed her cocktail and lunch too. They had a band on Friday night, but we didn't make it back. The atmosphere is very... More
