I first came to Kevin Barry's a long time ago and for years made it every chance I could when in Savannah. 12 years since my last visit though so I was excited to get back. The staff, food and atmosphere were great as always. Weekday afternoon for lunch so not much of a crowd. Hall of Hero's is fantastic,... More

I was here in the late afternoon and it was dead, which is to be expected.. I'm Irish and love a good Irish bar when I'm away. This place had the look, and even the a brilliant little trad band in the eating area belting out great tunes.. But the staff where zero fun... Not chatty, no fun, and not... More

So I work in the industry, and whenever I go out and the service is exceptional I get excited. Went up to the bar and immediately my life got better. Bryan was the dude behind the bar and for the 30 minutes we were there he made us the center of attention while still taking care of everyone else. The... More

Great pub located right in the heart of River Street. Lunch hit the spot perfectly, and the upstairs view is ideal. The Irish Nachos, black & bleu burger, sweet potato fries, fish & chips, & chicken tenders were all cooked perfectly and the portions were generous. My favorite was the burger - YUM!!! Prices are reasonable for any river front... More

Drove for an hour to get here only to be told over 21 after 7pm. Expressed our disappointment on Facebook, after leaving with three very disappointed children. Manager's attitude absolutely the worst. She sent me the post, below, after I expressed my disappointment on Facebook As an Irish person visiting the city of Savanah it was very disappointing that the... More

We've been here twice and both times were the same....delicious food, friendly staff, and terrific views of the riverfront happenings. When you enter the restaurant, the lower level has a bar and some tables (empty both visits), but take the stairs to your left and it'll take you to the balcony seating. Very small area with about 5 or 6... More

If you're looking to get shithoused with your friends on a Monday afternoon, this is the place to be. Shayna (the bartender) treated us like her brothers even when we completely offensive and full of drunken debauchery. Tip her well!

We stopped in Friday with a group of four and sat upstairs for some drinks. The balcony is air-conditioned which is genius because it was slightly passed the boiling point outside. The service was spot on and the drinks were strong and cold. We went back Saturday night and were entertained by an Irish troubador. His talents of singing, strumming,... More
