We are here and sat up stairs over looking the river. Our servicer who's name I think was Donald was great. Very friend guy who made good drinks. The fried green tomatoes were very good. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and said they were very good. I ordered the fried shrimp and it was good.

Visited for dinner while in town for a conference. Asked waiter for a recommendation between Shrimp and Grits or Stuffed Flounder. My wife and I both ordered the Shrimp and Grits. Service was good. Drinks kept refilled. Speed of the kitchen good. Shrimp a bit tough and grits somewhat bland. Would definitely try a different entree if we return. Similar... More

We were down on River Street and decided to give this place a try! We were able to walk in and go upstairs and were seated on the balcony which was beautiful. We were seated at a 2 person table, which they had crowded with a bucket, two drink menus, condiments, etc. which made it even more crowded. We do... More

We had a late lunch z @ Fiddler'S. the Miller Lite came in nicely frozen mug. Lunch was the fried shrimp. No matter who it is, it is tough to screw up ice cold beer and fried shrimp. The view was awesome.

After a long day walking around Savannah and a cruise down the river we stopped in this little restaurant on River St. The decor was typical seafood restaurant with a small balcony that looked out over the river. Seating was limited so we decided to eat inside and peek out the doorway. We were seated right away and the service... More

Our waiter really care about us and knew his beer. Out blanketed shrimp and chicken salads were very tasty. The outdoor seating views were fantastic as big ships lumbered by. Would return. The beer sampler was great!

We had 6 people in our party. We were seated immediately. Our server, Laurie, was thorough and efficient. The owners and managers should be thrilled she is on their staff! Those that had the shrimp and corn chowder loved it. My dish was delicious - probably the freshest and cleanest tasting fried fish platter I have had in a long... More
