We ate on the patio and were treated like kings and queens by misses Kat! She was lovely, very sweet and friendly! As we enjoyed delicious food, we were entertained by Chick Courtney. His music was beyond enjoyable. His voice was mesmerizing and so relaxing! The atmosphere was great and the beer was cooooolddd!! 10/10. Will most def return!

My wife and I had just finished a 5-day cruise on the Disney Dream (awesome, BTW) and we stopped in Savannah overnight on the way back home. We ended up at Tubby's on the advice of a really nice desk attendant at the hotel who told us he had just taken his mom there recently and really liked it. We... More

great location on the water! Staff was pleasant and brought our food out in a reasonable time. Unfortunately, the food was not very memorable. My husband usually loves shrimp and grits but here he just picked out the shrimp and moved his plate away! There are so many places to choose from so don't waste your time here.

Visited this place a year ago, and came again now. The food was consistently good (if not great), the service was pleasant and attentive, and the location - a balcony overlooking the river - is spectacular. Waiting time can be pretty long, so get on the waiting list 45 to 60 minutes before you want to eat (we did that... More

We never came here for lunch or dinner, but the breakfast is amazing. I got the shrimp omelette with grits and a biscuit, and it was a very tasty and filling breakfast. It was probably the best breakfast place we found in Savannah.

Got the crab bisque (delicious) & spinach salad (also delish). The person I was with got the Philly. Unfortunately, it was soggy. We got an app also- crab dip. It was ok. Food was good, just overpriced. Staff was friendly!

My husband and I came to Tubby's for a late lunch/early dinner at the recommendation of the guy in the cupcake shop we stopped by and it did not disappoint. We were able to get a table on the corner of the balcony and enjoy the great views of the river. We are big seafood lovers and it was quite... More

We had taken numerous strolls down River Street and noticed many fine-looking restaurants, but we decided on Tubby's Seafood for lunch Wednesday because we could sit upstairs on the porch which afforded a better scenic view. We waited about 10 minutes for a table in the front (better view), but it was certainly worth the wait. Our server, Sarah, brought... More

We were going to Huey's initially for breakfast. It was crowded and offered no outdoor seating. Then I looked upstairs and saw this awesome patio deck.. We ate an incredible breakfast at Tubby's watching the freights and ferries coast along the waterway. The southern benedict was amazing (French toast deep fried and covered with bacon, egg, and drizzled in maple... More
