Great late night spot!

Great appetizers! True Irish whiskey and plenty of Guinness! Bar tenders were very nice and really made it enjoyable. Live Irish music every night.

We sat upstairs with an awesome view of the river. Good and drinks were both good. The service improved during our visit. Staff were very aware of the need to meet the needs of many generations and handled this well.

The place was BUSY, but we had a fabulous waitress and both had good meals. My husband had the Shrimp Saute and was extremely pleased with his selection...over a dozen shrimp and the sauce was...

Came here after a night out to dinner and had such a great time. We listened to Fran Doyle sing. He is lively, Irish and so much fun! We thought we would only stay for an hour but we ended up there for four. The drinks are very good and reasonably priced. We got here around 7:00 and when we... More

Kevin Barry's is located on River St, with an enclosed patio dining area overlooking the river. Close to everything downtown Savannah has to offer, and easy enough to get to from midtown (or out-of-town). The menu had a fine selection of traditional Irish food and drinks, along with a varied assortment of dishes and cocktails. The bathrooms were clean. The... More

First time visitor to Kevin Barry's and will definitely go back. Atmosphere is good. I didn't find it to be particularly Irish from a visual standpoint but the menu and live music certainly is. (The piped in music is not-which is ok by me). We sat at the bar and the live music is easily heard. It is really fun... More

We had a great time at this Irish Pub. Carroll Brown was our entertainer and he made the time fly by with his cheerful attitude and fun songs. The young lady who waited on us seemed new to the job.

We happened upon this spot after arriving to Savannah around midnight. The bartender (Brian) was like a breath of fresh air and took great care of us! We ordered the Irish sampler (Beef Stew, Corned Beef & Cabbage, and Shepherd's Pie) and it was delightful. We sampled a few Irish whiskeys and had the pleasure of indulging in the Irish... More
