“Ask Alex what to Order, Go for the Filet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

This is a dining establishment that you don't judge by it's neighbors, tucked between a Gas Station and a Liquor Store, Sundae Cafe can be enjoyed every day of the week.

We did not intend to order a Filet but based on the recommendation of Alex we did. This is the Perfection of Filets, perfectly cooked, flavored, seasoned, and it was cut with very little effort from the butter knife, no steak knife required. We split the entree and it was perfect for two if you order two of their appetizers.

The starters were the Seafood Cheesecake and the Lobster Bisque. Again, highly recommended by Alex and worth every bite. The Bisque was again perfection and the cheesecake was truly excellent.

The desserts consisted of a slice of Reese, phenomenal, and the Coconut, also very good.

Their nightly specials are truly intriguing, an Elk Steak for example, will add a little out of town flavor to your plate if you decide to indulge.

The inside dining atmosphere and the service were superb. Ask Alex what to order that night and when in doubt, go for the Filet.

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

For our last evening, we booked Sundae. We found it to be an excellent "going away" treat.

The chefs are both JSW trained, the wait staff is very knowledgeable and professional in their delivery and the food was better than we experienced at one of the top ranked Savannah restaurants. We started with the seafood Quiche, had a lobster mac and pork chop for entrees (the bleu cheese bread pudding with the glazed pork chop was wonderful and even the succotash was different than any I had ever had) and finished with an excellent key lime pie. Portions are large, so we enjoyed the left-overs the next night...and they were still almost as good.
I'd make reservations. It's a popular local site for all the locals..

“Hidden little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Excellent seafood, place doesn't look like much from outside. It's in a strip mall with a gas station. No parking. Metered at the street. Shrimp po-boy and crab sandwich. Both very good. Has a bar and lots of wine!

“A hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We would never have found the Sundae Cafe had it not been for a friends recommendation. What a loss it would have been! The Sundae Cafe is in a little strip mall attached to a gas station. When you walk it in is a transformation to the cutest little cafe. They have specials every day and local seafood. The food was very good and the staff courteous and friendly. We had oysters, scallops and shrimp and were not dissappointed. Country fried steak and turkey dinner were some of the specials and while I didn't get to taste it, I could tell it was wonderful!

“Service and Fried Shrimp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Had a FANTASTIC lunch. The quality/quantity of the food was exceeded only by our waitress (Amy) service! Very personable, friendly, she forgot to put in our order which delayed the delivery a few minutes .She came to us and apologized profusely, offered to comp a desert. You don't see many wait persons admitting their mistake, (we didn't ask what was taking so long, maybe 20 mins), apologizing, then "making in right". The food was outstanding. The fried shrimp on the PoBoy was the best three of us had ever tasted! 5 stars from the 4 of us, Would definitely go back to Sundae Cafe!

THANKS AMY FOR YOUR HUMOR, AND SERVICE!!
