The ice cream was grainy and tasteless. We bought the overpriced chocolate dipped candy and it was inedible. We had to throw it out. Spend your money on sweets some place else.

This place has got the sweets, pralines and much more, usually crowded on weekends so go during the week if you can. Be ready this candy is not cheap. But good.

They always provide a sample of the famed iconic praline and other treats. The praline has pecans, lots and lots of sugar and so delicious

The pralines here are to die for. Not only delicious but hey are gigantic! The Carmel covered apples are divine. Pricey but worth a treat. This is a must stop place. Smells just as heavenly.

All the candy you need...sample the pralines on the way in. They are amazing! Kids are happy with a selection of every kind of "kid candy" there is. Lots of gummy bears, sharks, pigs etc. Watch the price though---it is 13.95/lb. Better to get the...More

Every time my husband and I visit Savannah, we visit River Street Sweets at least twice. Everything is delicious there, but our favorite is the chocolate pralines.
