Great Live Music

Stumbled into KB's while in Savannah. A very cool Irish pub with all the charm you could hope for. As is apparently the usual case there was live music; a funny guitarist playing Irish ballads and telling jokes. We had appetizers, which were good bar bite.

After arriving in Savannah starving on a Thursday night, we wandered down River St and discovered Kevin Barry's. Hearing Irish music flowing out on the sidewalk and always up for a Guinness, we stopped in for a late dinner. My husband had buffalo style Irish nachos (which were terrific) and I had a fried green tomato BLT, which was pretty... More

This will be my fourth try at posting this, so sorry for the delay. Kevin Barry’s is the easiest place to review. Remember the TV show Cheers? This is the Irish pub version.

Very nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. It's not every day you see a man in a skirt! Worth a drink or two. We did not eat. Would definitely return.

Savannah's got this Irish thing going and Kevin Barry's is an Irish Pub . . . good fit. But come on, I walk in on a Monday night late (9PM), no one is in the place and I get hit with a $2 cover charge and $6 for a pint. We're getting near ballpark or airport prices here! Like many... More

Amazing beer selection, great atmosphere! The bar also features a room upstairs dedicated to our veterans which is a truly moving tribute to many who have fought & died for our nation. Food is typical bar food. Worth a visit when you're in Savannah!

Came by here while walking on River Street. We figured there had to be some good food and we weren't disappointed. I have to admit, the downstairs area was dark and had a strong smell of a dirty mop. But, we sat upstairs and had a great view. Our servers were very good and took good care of us. They... More

Stopped in because of reviews on TripAdvisor. Savannah has lots of dining choices. Kevin Barry's has great views of Savannah River; very good food for great price. Dinners were $16'ish dollars. Service was great. Not fancy by any means but good overall value.
