“Location, atmosphere, menu!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Something for everyone and located in an quaint old building right on River St in Savannah. Only nice things to say about the food and all that goes with it.

“Great place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

First - the Bloody Mary's are awesome. $6.50 and they included serious vegetable matter ( Olives, tomatoes, celery, pepperoncini, lemon/limes). Decent sized portions, good service. Oysters were fresh and very well priced. We truly enjoyed our first lunch in Savannah here!

“Really, really good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Awesome restaurant with great service. The crab chowder was very good. Had a kick to it. Grilled tilapia and shrimp was good. Tortellini and shrimp was good. They even made a special dish for my son. Chicken and shrimp Alfredo with the Cajun sauce.

“Good food! Fun atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We were looking for a burger-type place on the river. We found the Cotton Exchange and it is a treasure. The waitress was great! The food - excellent. Hubby had the turkey reuben and I settled on the cheeseburger. It was one of the best burgers I have ever had! Hubby enjoyed his reuben as well.
They had several TV's - each with a different sporting event and they offered to put on anything we wanted. We preferred to listen to the music!
