“Not worth a special trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

You walk up and there is a chair by the door, sign in and wait. I don't care for that. Once we got seated, the server was great but the food was very pricey and average.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Our party of 6 enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. The server was ok..I don't remember any problems other than waiting about 20 mins for a table..nice evening waiting on the patio though..not a big deal. The salads were good..the crabby dip was good..I had a special that night..it was tortellini with crab and shrimp..I believe? Anyway, it was very good..we would eat there again. Overall it was good! I look forward to the next time!

“Nice meal out in a cozy, relaxed atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Initially went to Dolphin Reef but it was not to our liking so came to MacElwee's just before a big storm hit. Was a really enjoyable evening, just be prepared to eat fried food! Desserts were not impressive but service was good, atmosphere was relaxed and we didn't have to wait or drive all the way back into Savannah.
