My wife and I were searching for a restaurant with an outdoor table to enjoy a nice lunch. Mid-week is a great time to visit and we were fortunate to grab an open table. It was a gorgeous day and I think I had the...Grilled Chicken Caesar! Our cocktails were so delicious and really added to the experience. Other than the wobbly table, this was a great place for lunch along the river!More

I highly recommend this restaurant. Great atmosphere, cool bar. I stopped here to pick up my shrimp & grits to bring to the hotel, had the Artillery Punch at the bar while waiting. Both were fantastic and I will definitely return any time I'm in...Savannah.More

Wow right on the river and we got there early around 6 pm, got a table right away. We had excellent service and the food was outstanding. I got salmon with collards on top of sweet potatoes it was heavenly.

Stopped in for a quick bite and we were not disappointed. Great service with very little wait. We had the blue crab dip and thought it was delicious. The pita chips paired we'll with it.

While visiting Savannah we were looking for a place to eat on the riverfront. We decided on the River House Seafood. Good choice. We chose to sit at the bar for dinner. The bartender was great. The place was busy but he was unflappable. He...greeted us with a smile and told us about several dinner selections. We decided on the Savannah Paella and the Shrimp and Scallop Pasta. The paella was awesome, full of seafood. There was shrimp, clams in the shell, chicken, crabmeat and grouper on a bed of seasoned rice. It's a meal. The Pasta had no shortage of shrimp and scallops in a creamy pasta. Great food. Sitting at the bar we met another couple that was traveling and we had drinks after dinner with them. Our bartender took care of us. Highly recommend!More

My wife and I selected this restaurant since it was close to our hotel and previous reviews. We made a reservation a week ahead of time. We were unfortunately seated at a table near the bar. It turned out that the patrons that were seated...at the bar were quite loud. So much for a quiet dinner. We both ordered the Paella, their house specialty. It was just average. The shrimp were rubbery and the fish tasted fishy. There were plenty of clams in shells and pieces of chicken. The lobster & crab bisque was good, but served luke warm. My wife ordered a glass of wine, which the waiter forgot about until he was reminded when our entrees were served. Needless to say this is not a restaurant that we will return to if we come back to Savannah.More

Our first night in Savannah and not knowing where to go we strolled down River St and found River House Seafood. Not much on ambience, but full of personality. Waitstaff and bartenders, being short handed made the best of it with good humor and moving...fast. Our waiter, Mike, was a true personality and made our meal enjoyable. The food was good, mainly seafood (not sure what your first clue would be). Escargot was tasty, grouper and crab was good, making for a good dinner. Bill wasn’t that bad, in keeping with a restaurant in the tourist part of town. Recommend it.More

Terrible and overpriced food, even worse service. Of all the amazing places to eat in Savannah, put this at the bottom of your list.
