The place was busy and we understood. After getting our drink order wrong the Waitress Moe had an attitude with us. 6 different people come in after we had been seated and got there food. Our waitress didn’t seem to care. After asking to speak...to the manager (that was unfriendly and rude) we got our food. The food was ok but we will not be back there.More

Clary’s was my favorite brunch place we went. A friend and I split the Elvis and crab cake Benedict. And both were AMAZING! That crab cake was one of the best I’ve had and the bananas and peanut butter on the French toast was the...best idea!More

My favorite meal of my whole trip to Savannah was breakfast at Clary's Cafe. I got the Oglethorpe so I could try a little of everything, and I had to force myself to not eat it all, it was that good. The pancakes were fluffy...and just a little crispy on the outside, the ham was flavorful and delicious, and the potatoes were well-seasoned. To top if off, the staff were were friendly and nice. If I make it back to Savannah, Clary's will be my first stop.More

My husband had the Corned Beef Hash which was recommended by a gentleman that we met in the waiting line, turns out we were all from the same city. It was very good suggestion, yummy. I had the stuffed Cream Cheese and Strawberry French Toast,...also yummy. Our waitress was super nice and very attentive.More

Very friendly service, great menu and delicious food. We had the crab eggs Benedict and the French toast and bacon. Both were wonderful. There’s a French toast stuffed with bananas and peanut butter called The Elvis that we will try next time!

I got the country fried steak and my husband got the Victorian. Everything was really good. The eggs were good. The steak and gravy tasted great, wasn't enough gravy for me though. Home fries perfectly cooked. My husband enjoyed his biscuits and sausage gravy. The...biscuits were a little overcooked for us tho. There was quite a line but it went super fast. Would definitely return.More

Ate here based on recommendations. Rueben was good, fries were tired. My hash was ok but neither was worth the time or money when there are so many other options available in town.

We went to Clary’s because it was highly rated. However, Clary’s is currently relying on people who have seen a movie that was filmed there and not serving food that is of the quality for the high rating. The grits were good and the service...was friendly, but the biscuits were not high quality and barely warm and the potatoes looked like they were originally frozen instead of being fresh. If that food was not in a movie setting, the restaurant would either need to get new recipes and improve its food or it would not last long as there are better choices for food throughout Savannah.More

Went for lunch while on our tour today. It was excellent. I had the Gyro with the Greek salad and my husband had the Reuben sandwich. The salad was fresh and the sandwiches were excellent. Highly recommend. We have been to the more expensive places...in Savannah but this was the best food for lunch yet.More

Me and my friend went here for breakfast while visiting Savannah. We went based on review and they didn’t lie. This place is great. I liked I could get lunch items for breakfast. But the highlight of my day was a man working named Benjamin...he was super nice and polite and seemed so joyful. I loved the food but he made my whole day better by just talking to him. He was doing a great job folding silverware and helping out. You could leave not happy after speaking with him. Do yourself a favor and go here to eat. It’s great and if you get a chance to stop and talk to Benjamin he’ll make your day.More

This little hole in the wall is on just about every bus/bike/walking tour's path. And there's always a crowd. We were lucky to have only a 30 min wait for a large party on a Monday morning. The reward was spectacular home-made corned beef hash....It wasn't just ground beef, but a reworked tasty crispy plate of goodness. Other egg plates were cooked perfectly. Also amazing was the crab cake benedict. Decadence in the morning Coffee was plentiful. Service was friendly and fast. The biscuits are good, but plain and not spiked with extra flavors. It's clear why this place is still a destination.More

Seriously?? The pancakes, sausage, biscuit and gravy, potatoes are NOT HOUSE MADE. Out of a box, frozen, out of a can. This is a dirty little hole that may have been in a movie, who cares? Yuck. So not worth the wait or the $$$...Two stars only for our waiter Mike who was a joy.More

We’ve been to Clary’s before but never got the Corned Beef Eggs Benedict. It was sooo good and so unique! Made fresh every day. We had that and cheese grits and pancakes. Perfect breakfast! Will go again next time we are in Savannah.

There is limited onsite parking, but street parking is available. During peak times, you may have to park a bit further away. No marked wheelchair accessible parking that I saw though.
