Little Savannah is our go-to eatery in Birmingham. It's a bit off the beaten path, but worth seeking out and easy to locate. The food is always well prepared. The 'Duck' dish is the best prepared version of duck in the state and should be an award winner. The Shrimp & grits smacks of delicious southern flavors that meld perfectly... More

We were looking for a great place to have dinner and found Little Savannah!! We were seated in a quaint dining area. We opted for the fried green tomatoes and they did not disappoint! The shrimp and grits were not your typical cheesy grits, definitely give them a try!! Clif the chef/owner stopped by and helped us out with what... More

We were ignored by hostess on arriving, We were having an early dinner, both of us ordered flounder, $ 25.00, Fish was tasteless and not fresh. I asked waiter to recommend some wine which he did by pointing to the most expensive one on the menus. We asked for bread and were told that this would be an extra charge... More

I have only dined her once, but thoroughly enjoyed my meal and the ambiance. The food was expertly prepared and presented. I had a burger that was wonderful with arugula and heirloom tomato. Also excellent choices on the wine list. Would consider a destination location for dining.

Group of friends decided to try this place out. Full bar with great selection of drinks & wine. Food menu is small. Prices for selection & size is not much of a value. Cozy seating in both dining areas. Staff was awesome!

Little Savannah At this price level I expected a little better. The ambience is shabby homestyle or if you prefer - organic and rustic. Roughly done paintings on the wall. Candle on the table. Our table consisted of two tables pulled together, leaving an uneven seam down the middle. The server was perhaps a bit too chummy and somewhat careless... More

I had heard great things about Little Savannah and was very excited to come. I hate to say I was not impressed. The service was excellent, but the food was just kind of meh... I had the shrimp and oysters, which were very plain. The oysters were HUGE, so kind of hard to swallow. The breading was nice and krispy,... More

My husband and I as part of a group of 9 people came here for dinner after an art gallery reception in the area. It was actually pretty late, but a phone call to the restaurant and they were very gracious to stay around for our late dining time. I had the Scallops dish, which was wonderful and my husband...
