“Old menu was better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

This was our first visit in awhile and the old menu was definitely better. The venue is excellent, the service was good, fast, and friendly, but the food was mediocre. The old menu featured mahi tacos with a choice of three salsas including a wonderful mango salsa. As we remember, one could also order shrimp and pork tacos. Not on the current menu. We will probably go elsewhere next time.

“New Find in an Old Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I have been traveling to Savannah for most of my life, as a child, and now as an old codger. I have my favorite spots. I was staying in Thunderbolt for a week recently and discovered the Bonna Bella Yacht Club. It's not a spot that's on the beaten path, and maybe that is on purpose. Thunderbolt is on the old road (US 80) between Savannah and Tybee Island, and Bonna Bella is found (by car in my case) by weaving through some residential areas and past Savannah State College. The setting is gorgeous, alongside a tributary of Country Club Creek. One can arrive by car/boat/bike. It seemed to be most popular among local boating families. I think there were as many arrivals by water as by car.
The food and service were not the selling point however. Savannah has its fine dining options, but this is more of a "sit on the deck, eat some seafood, listen to some local music" kind of place. The food was not bad, just plain. The service was not bad, just average. Ditto for the prices.
There was plenty of parking (boat/car), a playground for the little ones, and live music. 4 of us had a good dinner with appetizers and main courses, plus drinks (full bar available) for around $200.00 over a three hour time span.
The place is worth a visit if you are in the area.

“Great Venue with Children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Visited with grandchildren. Wife and I had very good Hamburgers and the little guys loved their Macaroni and Cheese. They tried the Crab Fritters and enjoyed them, as small as they were. We all enjoyed the large sandbox area which allowed the small ones to play, in between bites, and we all felt good with the world. Food was good, service was slow, drinks were cold and the World was Right!

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Had dinner here during the week for our work event. The atmosphere is fantastic, beautiful location right on the water. We had a shrimp boil with salad and BBQ chicken, all was very good. You can play games in the sand out front to pass the time. Will come back next time with the family, is a great place to hang out and enjoy a few beverages and the view!

“Not worth the wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Came for dinner on a Sat night while visiting my son at college. Arrived 6:30 pm. Came because of good reviews on Google and TripAdvisor. After waiting close to one hour we were seated on their deck. View is great and the atmosphere is lively. However they were out of three things that we ordered and the food we did order was just ok. If the wait was shorter I would have been more tolerable but after waiting for an hour I expected better food.
