Still an outstanding place for breakfast two years later.. but more popular!!

Still superb!! Sunday morning wait was about 25 minutes but we wandered through the adjacent Savannah neighborhood, which is delightful! B. Matthews has become very popular, and with good reason!!

We asked our bellhop to recommend a place for breakfast-our only requirement was that it must not serve greasy foods. He suggested B. Matthews Eatery which was just 2 blocks from the Inn. The staff was welcoming and very pleasant. My friend had Eggs Benedict which were excellent. My other friend and I had the veggie scramble-can't beat fresh vegetables... More

Chose to have breakfast here during a brief visit to Savannah, rather than at the rather pricey alternative at our hotel. It was a good choice. The two different breakfasts chosen by myself and my husband were both beautifully cooked and well presented and more to the point delicious. We wished we had chosen to have dinner here the previous... More

It was raining, we were looking for a restaurant close to our hotel and found E Matthews Eatery. The food was excellent, gourmet style. Our waiter, Phil, was very knowledgeable about all their entrees. He also helped us select a perfect wine for dinner. We enjoyed the meal so much, we returned 2 days later. It was just as good....

We liked everything. My husband had the most delicious and tender mussels outside of Belgium, that he's ever had. His scallops entree was so sweet, fresh and delicious. My potato lasagne was also delicious, and different. We had an unbelievable mango upside down cake that I could eat every day. This was a most enjoyable, leisurely dinner, and we had... More

I was walking the street and was looking at the menu when a local told me this was one of her favorite spots in Savannah. I ran my quick errand and returned to B Matthews. Upon walking in, I instantly noticed the bar and charm of the bar along with the rest of the relatively small restaurant which was full... More

This place was good. It was good. I would not say it's a must-have. The food and service were good, but it was a little high. (I think we paid for atmosphere.) 8/10. Might return.

We eat here every time we're in Savannah. It's consistently good, and affordable. It gets a little crowded mid-morning, so there might be a little wait time.

We were only in Savannah for one night and happened on B. Matthews by chance because they have a patio and we were travelling with our dog. The wait staff immediately brought out a bowl of water for our pooch. We ordered the halibut which was gently pan fried and served on a mirepoix medley along with tender crisp green... More

I was looking for a restaurant near my hotel and saw this one had good reviews on TripAdvisor so I went there for dinner. I had a kale salad and the gnocchi. The ingredients were very fresh and the taste was original and delicious. The hostess and server were very friendly but not intrusive and the service was perfectly paced.... More
