This restaurant is just a block from our hotel. Had read about it on several food blogs and wanted to make at least one stop here. I had shrimp and grits and their version was very good...as was their house Bloody Mary! It is a nice setting and we had really good service. Would have gone back if we had... More

I had the potato and goat cheese soup and ham, brie and blueberry sandwich. The food was amazing and super fresh. Everyone in our group loved their lunches.

We had a wonderful brunch here this morning. Sat outside because the weight was shorter. Crab omelet with grits and fruit! Biscuit on the side. Yum!

After a disappointing shrimp and grits experience on my most recent trip to Charleston (same trip as this Savannah trip) I had to make up for it, as shrimp and grits is my southern go to dish. When my mother and I were looking for a breakfast spot in close proximity to our hotel (The Riverstreet Inn) we stumbled upon... More

Had a wonderful breakfast at B Mathews. The pancakes were awesome and very generous portions of everything. Jenn, our server, was a gem. Great service. We'll be back the next time we visit Savannah.

We found this place on yelp and the reviews were right, this place has great food for great value. We had mimosas and breakfast. The food was fresh and delicious. This is a place I will be returning to if I am ever in Savannah again.

The quick review is that we were in Savannah for three days and ate here three times - two breakfasts and one lunch. The food is excellent and creative. The shrimp and grits are as good or better than any I have ever had. The service is also great. It looks like a hipster joint, but is run and operated... More

Had dinner tonight with my husband while visiting Savannah. It was pouring rain so we were looking for a good restaurant within walking distance. What a find! Food was wonderful and our server Rob was so attentive. I have food allergies and the chef was very accommodating. Wonderful guitar music playing during dinner.

Highly recommend! Came with baby and toddler- gave us kid menu in Disney books which was a nice touch. More importantly, the food was amazing. Bells Two Hearted and a great Three Taverns Wit beer on tap. Shrimp and Grit bites were delicious. The complimentary bread with house almond butter- yum! Husband had a wonderful bacon wrapped rabbit roulade- one... More
