“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

So much to love about this place. The atmosphere and ambiance just so cool. It's dark, you're in a basement tavern. Lots of brick and candles. One table actually sits in the wine cellar. There was a lady playing the piano. We sat at the bar before our table was ready, the bartenders were great! When we did eat, the food was fabulous. Had many things that were good but the scallops were some of the best I have ever eaten!

“Romantic & Historical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We enjoyed a father's day dinner in the candle lit Tavern under the Pink House and loved the entire experience. The ambiance is special with a rustic, clandestine feel, made more so by the very low lighting.
Service was perfect from start to finish. We'd been traveling all day so a large meal wasn't necessary for the two of us. I had wanted some sort of seafood offering and after operusing the menu I chose the Habersham platter consisting of a trio of appetizers- shrimp and grits, crabcake w fried green tomato, and seared scallops w wilted greens. Just enough assortment to carry the meal for me. Wife enjoyed a field green salad with fruit and pecans and a great dressing. She has food allergies and they were handled w aplomb.
Nice drink menu and good beer selection, no wine for either of us.
Nice dessert menu too. We had a warm, formed basket filled w vanilla ice cream and topped with fresh berries. It finished us both!
If you are looking for a place with a historical bent while in Savannah try it, you'll like it.

“Sublime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

My new favorite place in savannah!! Loved the dark, cool, candlelit atmosphere. It is unique and when it is hot outside it is a cool, glorious escape. Excellent service, wines by the glass, and a great selection of cocktails. Hubby and I both loved th fried pork chop entree accompanied by mac and cheese and collards. If we get back to savannah this pub will be a big reason why!

“Planters Tavern is romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

I loved the dark romantic atmosphere with the fireplaces and relaxed but upscale dining. Service is excellent and we love the Kobe Burger! We go at opening since it is first come first served. Staff is knowledgeable and we've always had wonderful wine and meals.
