My wife and I visited Savannah 9 years ago. We ambled into Kevin Barry's, enjoyed some drinks, and fell a little more in love with each other. Fast forward to June of this year when we traveled back to Savannah to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. We went down to the river, but could not... read more

I recently popped in to Savannah for a short afternoon visit and I put "Irish" in Google and found Kevin Barry's. Thank you, Google. Along the historic River St., this spot was exactly what I was looking for. A fresh pint of Guinness and a good burger and I was more that satisfied. My bartender, Shayna ( I may have... More

Sadly, we were only at Kevin Barry's Irish Pub for drinks. But what a great place. We were seated upstairs and were looking out over the river. It was a great view. I had read about the Chatham Artillery Punch and wanted to try it. Delicious! I had not one, but two! When I return to Savannah I will be... More

We visited Kevin Barry's because of the unusual name! I have never seen another Irish pub named after this Irish hero. We were entertained by Carroll Brown who sang a variety of Irish songs both old and new and took the trouble to sit and talk with his audience in the interval. It was a great night for the craic!

My friends and I wandered into this delightful restaurant on our trip to Savannah this last weekend. I must say the food was amazing... the best Irish food I have had outside of Ireland itself. I had the Guinness brisket sandwich which was fabulous and huge (I shared a large portion of the brisket with my friends and was still... More

We had an early dinner here one night, so we unfortunately missed the nightly live music. Still, the food was terrific, the wait staff was super friendly, and the environment really made this feel like the neighborhood Irish pub. We shared some pretzel sticks with Guinness beer cheese, then I had the brisket...wow...WAY tender and just an overall good meal.... More

Place just feels like an old pub in Ireland. Wooden beams, musty smells, live Irish music, Irish-Americans having fun - good selection of beer. We always sit on the side live music side. People enjoy the music but generally listen and enjoy a cold beer. Other side is the louder bar side. Ordered pizza - typical bar pizza with frozen... More

This place was recommended to us my the Bonadventure tour guide.We are glad we took his suggestion. The food is typical pub food. We started with beer battered onion rings and pretzel dough sticks with cheese sauce. I would get the pretzels sticks and sauce again because it was tasty and is not found at every restaurant, whereas the onions... More

The food was fantastic and the server friendly to. Despite this there was only one server, serving at least thirty times. This meant we had to wait quite a while, but still very nice. The waitress did apologise for the wait and said that there had been a staff problem that night.
