This was the best meal we had while visiting Savannah! We went for Sunday brunch and everyone's food was amazing. We had a group of 10 and I called to make reservations several months in advance - they were fantastic about getting us in on time and following up on the reservations. This is a must try place in Savannah!!

Not as kid friendly as I thought, but not on the restaurant's side; rather, it was more with with the other customers there at the time. The kids were not messy or loud, but perhaps, it was the perception that they would be that drew stares by some in the room. Oh well, I'm a true foodie, so I'm not... More

Tried something different and took waitress' advice on Shrimp and Grits. It was best I ever had. Perfect combination of texture and seasoning.

We had brunch and breakfast here during our stay in Savannah. Everything was good. No complaints from our 4 top on either visit. Drinks were good as well. Service was prompt and friendly.

This breakfast concluded our two week visit and we could not have done any better. Wish we would have found this place earlier as the wait staff was very attentive, excellent choices and good food

We had a great lunch here! It's only open for breakfast/lunch, and it was really good! The menu items were unique and all sounded delicious! I got the fried green pimento cheese sandwich and it was very good! I would definitely get it again. My husband got the fried duck waffle, and it was good too! Our server was great... More

We stopped here for late mid-afternoon lunch after a tour of the Mercer House.B Matthews was recommended by a shop keeper. The salads and service were outstanding. They have a nice menu and well kept premises. Our wait person, Nathan, answered most of our questions about Savannah and those he couldn't were referred to another, both of whom were longtime...

Stopped here for lunch. My husband & I were looking for a place that had some typical southern dishes and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was excellent and the food was very good. My husband had the shrimp & grits which he just loved & I had to agree. I ordered the blackened shrimp salad since I wanted something... More
