Family owned and operated since 1976, Spankys serves up the worlds best chicken finger! The story goes like this, in 1976, a few friends wanted to start a restaurant on River Street in Savannah. Then, the booming River Street we know today was only a dirt road, with only a few spots for dining on the waterfront. Enter two innovative friends who cut up a few pieces of tender, white meat chicken, battered and fried them to perfection, and said to each other 'hey, son, lets call them chicken fingers!' And so Spanky's was born, and its still run by the same man and his family and loyal wonderful staff today! Come on down and dine on a piece of Savannah history with us--we're waitin' on ya!

Ups and downs

I had the buffalo style chicken fingers, really great stuff. The french fries were not the best, neither the pizza which is not the same as we know from europe, especially from italy.

This was our favorite place to eat out of all the places we tried. We had pizza and a burger. Both were great. You have to try the Spanky Spuds. Those are heaven! Location and building were great and the atmosphere as well. Loved it! No wait for our table and server was friendly. Only complaint is that the food... More

Came to Spanky's on my break today. I was in no rush. I walked in and sat at the bar and almost immediately Cheryl asked me what I wanted to drink. One of the best Bahama Mamas I've had in a very long time. She got my food in for me and it came out so fast. Overall best experience... More

Atmosphere was really good, fun place to be at. My favourite was their Spuds! Reminded me of Shakey's mojos which is one of the best ways to serve a potato!

We are from Charleston so it is hard to impress us with food but when Jordan tells you they have the best chicken fingers believe him. The honey dipping sauce is great and the service is fast and friendly. We also had the shrimp appetizer which was good fresh not frozen shrimp and shipped from China.

Solomon did an awesome job with our large party of 14! Best service we had ever! Spanky's is a family tradition on the way home from the beach every year! Highly recommend Solomon as a server! :)
