We asked the man that seated us what his favorite was- He said best shrimp and grits in town. Being from the North none of us have ever been impressed with grits; but they did bring us a little just to try (very nice and didn't charge us) he was right- best grits ever, we cleaned the plate. We also... More

Love, Love, Love this place! We eat here every time we're in Savannah, have never been disappointed! I recommend either the stuffed shrimp or the shrimp and grits! My Husband likes the low country boil and you just can't go wrong with the peel and eat shrimp! If you have Kelly as your waitress then it should be a great... More

Although our waitress, Karen, was spectacular, and the restaurant was on the riverfront, I was not impressed with the food. Our drink specials were small and just OK. I think there are better places on the riverfront for seafood and drinks.

On River Street. We came here for lunch and had a great server named Bambi. The shrimp and lobster bisque was very good and the shrimp salad was excellent. A very unusual building as well.

Was on our way back home and stopped here for a quick lunch. The service was great! The food was hot and tasted fresh. We got our food super fast and was on our way. We were in no way rushed, however it was impressive that we were able to eat quickly and get hot fresh food!

Excellent dinner choice! We had stuffed flounder and grilled grouper. Both were excellent. The waiter was a good sport also.

Stopped by here one night after being a tourist in Savannah as they were advertising Happy Hour Cocktails. Sat at the bar so the food and drink service was great. Busy night as it was the day before New Years Eve. Nice little bar with very friendly helpful staff. Had shrimp cocktail for entrée and chicken pasta for main, both... More

We went here for lunch and had a scallop and an oyster basket. The food was delicious and generous. We couldn't finish it all. The waitress was friendly and efficient.

This was a very busy place and considering its location it should be. The wait was a bit long (15-20 minutes) and the waitress brought muffins that were good and refilled our drinks. When she said "besides another drink refill is there anything else I can get you before lunch comes out?" I said no thanks to the third sofa... More
