Atmosphere was good! Food is plain. Had the shrimp, crab, artichoke and spinach dip. Hardly had any shrimp or crab and didn't really have a good taste. Husband ordered shrimp and sausage creole and it was not spicy at all! Again it was ok. I ordered flounder meal - hushpuppies were dry and fish was ok. All in all the... More

Used to be great. Just average now... Service was slow and had to be asked to bring our the pre meal muffins. Food was not bad but not special and certainly not as good as it was years ago. This is the place that got me hooked on shrimp and grits but changed their recipe and is very disappointing now.

We stopped in on a rainy day and had the pine bark stew. Don't be fooled by the name it was fantastic. Brought to the table in its own little stew pot it filled the bowl three times - you don't go away hungry. Stew is filled with shrimp, clams, scallops and fish not just potatoes - the green pepper,... More

Enjoyed sitting at table in bar area. Bar tenders/wait staff were very good and helpful. Good variety of beer on tap and great special punch drink. Food was good. Went 2 out of 3 nights in Savannah.

A touch of history within the history. Imagine being on the greatest date weekend you can remember, in the moss lined setting of Savannah's historic district and then finding Julia to set the local tone. A Savannah native with the best Bloody Mary recipe and story around. Since she was 13, which could not have been more than 8 years... More

We stopped in here Friday night for drinks. I had the local beers and she had the artillery punch. The female musician playing was good. She let some of her friends play one who was from New York, well the next night I saw him playing at a different bar. Brad wimmersberg or something close to that was his name.

The food is wonderful and so is the service. The Oysters Rockefeller is my absolute favorite. Check out the daily drink specials too.

A sister restaurant to River House Seafood but I didn't think the food quality was as good. We were enticed by the free shrimp cocktail coupon being handed out by the sidewalk stationed hostess. Decor is riverfront warehouse theme. Our waitress was great and full of southern charm. I had the blackened grouper florentine but it had an off flavor... More
