Best meal in years

We had a fabulous dining experience with a range and depth of flavors akin to the variety of colors in an impressionist painting. Wait staff were friendly, professional, and competent. Highly recommended.

Very good, Southern food. Tasty, large quantities. Quick service, nice array of choices. Eight of us had breakfast there this morning. They quickly accommodated us. We all had something different and compared each other's food; delightfully pleased with all we sampled. Excellent find, well priced; would certainly return.

B Matthews Eatery was just down the street from the Brice hotel where I took a group of artists for the Living Studio with Jeanne Oliver. It was convenient and offered great breakfast items.

First a hats off for honoring our reservation despite them having a line out the door and us being 15 minutes late due to traffic. Restaurant has a nice trendy neighborhood feel. Service was excellent. Some more creative items on menu then we ordered, but our eggs were good. Felt each dish felt a bit short and inconsistent with what... More

my daughter, who is a vegan, and I visited Savannah during a cold snap in February. The trolley tour guide recommended the burgers so we decided to try the restaurant. It was warm and inviting. The wait staff were friendly and the black eyed pea burgers light and delicious! We got two each served on tasty homemade bread! It was... More

Charming old ambience, casual. We were there for breakfast on a Sunday. They open at 9:00 and there was a line waiting to get in. Thankfully, we had a reservation! The tables were filled immediately and there were people left waiting. That continued the whole time we were there. Obviously, the locals know a good thing! There were 7 of... More

Today they opened at 9, and we were the first in line to go in- there was already a crowd before they opened, so get there early if you don't want to wait- great food, lots of variety in options, great service!

We pulled into Savannah after a very long day driving up from southwestern Florida. After getting settled into our accommodations, we entered B. Mathews and were immediately relaxed and at ease. Quick, friendly service, fabulous starter of local cheeses and spreads, and wonderful entrees. My wife even found some gluten-free menu items noted with small symbols. A nice selection of... More

We came to B Matthews expecting good things as some friends had been when they visited Savannah 2 wks before us. Unfortunately they were out of the Salmon Kale Salad and the Quiche that our friends had highly recommended. No worries though, the Tur-duck-en burger and the roasted red pepper potato salad was great and the Reuben was also very... More
