Description: Talk about a room with a view! It doesn't get more relaxing than kicking back at Tubby's Tank House above River Street and watching the tankers cruise by - even when the Savannah heat is at its peak, outdoor diners always stay refreshed with the brisk River breeze. This is always the place for fresh seafood: The catch of the day is served grilled, fried or blackened with plenty of sides, and the crab cakes and fish fingers have folks raving. Land lovers will find lots to take in, including juicy ribeyes or kickin'chicken and there are sandwiches galore for the lunchtime crowd. Save room for dessert - preferably a piece of pecan pie, baked fresh every day by Tubby himself in Savannah's Candy Kitchen. Also, join us for our Southern Style breakfast served daily from 7:30 a.M. To 10:30 a.M. From homemade biscuits and gravy to crab cake Benedict there is surely something for everyone!

Spinach salad and a cup of the crab stew for lunch, 1 coffee. Very good salad.... baby spinach fresh and crispy with mushrooms, bacon boiled egg, tomatoes, red onion and craisins. Light vinaigrette dressing served on the side. The crab stew was creamy and hot but a bit salty. Hit the spot on a chilly day though. Service was pleasant... More

Expensive and the food is not that great. The only thing we really liked about it was that it was outside, sorry :( God bless!

Out side dinning or setting at the bar will give you a flavor of the Savanah life style and river walk, food and drinks were good, server was very gentile and friendly. I will recomend this restaurant.

Right on River Drive, this is also a local's favorite. The menu is extensive, the service is always great and the prices are somewhat reasonable. Got my fresh steamed shrimp that were absolutely great. Combined with a tap beer, I enjoyed my experience. Ate outside (can do all year round). They have some very fresh seafood.

The diner's salad with fried shrimp and horseradish dressing is outstanding. Had it when I was here 20 years ago and had it again this month. Great little place where you can sit outside on the balcony and people watch. Had two guys playing guitar the night we were there - they were very good.

A nice place to sit at the bar, overlooking the river, having a drink and a snack. We arrived just when the entertainer was ready to leave. Not knowing he was leaving I made a request for a couple of songs. He plugged in his equipment and played the songs as requested. A very nice touch. Service at the bar... More

It was time for a break so we stopped in this riverfront restaurant. It has a casual, open-air, fun-filled and friendly atmosphere. We were seated on the second level at a table overlooking the waterfront. We dined on the Savannah Crab Dip (a piping hot dish of lump crab meat smothered in cheese sauce and house spices) – scrumptious! –... More

This was not bad at all.. They have a great outdoor seating area with a view of the river. The food was good. The wait staff was pleasant.

There are not too many places on the River Front you can sit outside and watch the one the busiest rivers for container traffic in America. This was one of two we found you could sit on the upper story and watch the river. The food was good for bar style food. It's not fine dining, but we went for... More
