“New Orleans food selections”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

In addition to seafood, Huey's has a wonderful New Orleans specialties portion on their menu. Crawfish Etouffe, Jambalia, Muffalettas - all yummy !! And the beingets are to die for.

“New Orleans Goodness in Savannah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Although this place is on the River Walk in the heart of tourist traps, it is authentic New Orleans cuisine. This place is very busy and there is no doubt why, we went in skeptical and were amazed by the food. Even with it being so busy, they always seemed to find us a table without a wait. The service is quick and efficient so be ready with your order or questions when they come by. They always had a smile and offered suggestions. The beignets are a sinful treat, the gumbo was thick and rich just like it’s made in NOLA and my eggs benedict & green fried tomatoes top notch. We couldn’t have asked for a better meal. The dining room we sat in was classic Southern wood with picture windows and a light blue ceiling as if you were on your own veranda. They serve breakfast/lunch from morning until 3pm. My husband went back 3 more times after I left Savannah (he was there on business). If there is one negative that we ran across, it’s a bit too noisy for our liking, but that surely didn’t stop us for going back again and again. We told everyone we came across to go!

“Fresh Beignets with Homemade Praline Sauce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

The beignets here are better than any I have had in New Orleans! The spicy bloody mary was a perfect compliment for the sweet and salty. My husband loved the crabcake benedict, I greatly enjoyed the shrimp over parmesan grits. Located on River street you can grab a drink and walk out and enjoy the area and the water!

“Delicious, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We stopped in Savannah for lunch and found this restaurant, right on the water with great views. Food was excellent, especially the shrimp and cheese grits. The Bloody Mary was just ok, but not bad. Highly recommend.

“Crabcakes Benedict”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

Our search for crab cakes took us to Huey's. Huey's offered an extensive breakfast menu, but we knew what we would order for breakfast. We succumbed to beignets to accompany our breakfast. Service was a bit gruff; don't know if it was part of the New Orleans character. We enjoyed the view of the harbor.
