After eating and drinking at more than 30 places during our 7 day trip to Savannah, this was the best experience we had.

The greeting and the attitude of our service made our experience fabulous. There were a few misses on the food and the good news (with rice that was hard) is that they were flexible with removing things from our bill. Like the locationa nd really enjoyed the ambiance.

So after some back and forth with the owner we decided to return to try the food, our first attempt did not allow us to eat here but glad we were able to this time.

Our son lives in Savannah and we were visiting for Thanksgiving. We read the reviews on this place and decided to give it a try. Ordered the Carving Board appetizer. It was good. Had the pork as my main entree. Two tiny pieces of pork. It was not that good. I left feeling that the price didn't match the quality.... More

One of the best meals we have had. Everything from start to finish was excellent. Our server was outstanding as well. They have an interesting menu that is sure to please. We will visit this place again our next trip to Savannah without a doubt.

We had reservations for two and at the last minute a friend wanted to come with us. I called ahead and they were accomodating. We really enjoyed the drinks and our meal. We all had the beef filet-- organic grass fed and it was cooked perfectly. The root mash was a little flat and watery, but still not bad enough... More
