“Riverboat ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We took the free ride over in the boat to the other side. Very nice. We could see the shore when we arrived to the other side of all the neat shops and the River front.

“Make time to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

River Street is an interesting mix of people and places. Lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. Try Fiddlers for some crab legs (be sure to ask to sit upstairs on the patio and you have a great view of the river) and Wet Willies for some frozen drinks. When it's not super hot and humid, it's really nice to sit by the river and just watch the boats go back and forth and people watch too.

“A hopping old district”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

The River Street area of Savannah is a beguiling mix of old and new. Steeply sloped, ballast stone streets plunge to the waterside, along which dozens of restaurants and shops and craft stands beckon tourists with their wares. We lunched at Vic's on the River, and strolled the old stone streets, watching the people and the boats go by. Plenty of photo ops on River Street, and is certainly worth your time if you happen to be in town.

Liked the street, you will never starve here. Plenty of shops and eateries, view the massive cargo ships passing by on the river.

“Fun and good entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We had good shopping, food and beverages along this street. Great bars and great food! "Savannah Smiles" was a lot of fun! A great place for a piano bar and the entertainment was very talented musicians.
