B MATTHEWS EATERY in Savannah is a wonderful place to have a meal. Located within view of the Savannah river, the restaurant is actually in what was a 200 year old Brothel & has tunnels in the basement that went out to the Savannah river where young strong men were drugged and hijacked aboard ships as "free" help. We had... More

My husband and I visited B. Matthews on a Sunday morning, when entering we were told of a 45min-1 hour wait but we could leave a cell and they would text us when our table was ready, that's a great feature for restaurants! We walked around for about 45 minutes and headed back, since we had worked up quite an... More

We will be addressing this with all of our staff. We are working hard to reduce wait times at all stages of service and make sure that all of... More

Yummy! We stopped in to have breakfast before we left town. Very busy place. We were lucky to get there right at opening. My husbands biscuits and gravy was excellent. I had the goat cheese, spinach omelette. Very fresh breakfast. I highly recommend.

We enjoyed our second dinner there. The first was two years ago. The staff is friendly and the food is above average. We went back for breakfast the next day. A solid choice.

Amazing food and amazing place; only reason we gave it 4 stars is because the service was extremely slow; the staff was very attentive to our drinks and our needs, but it just took over an hour for us to even get our food. The staff did offer complimentary drinks and/or a discount on the tab as a result of... More

We were walking Square to square enjoying the evening when we saw B Matthew's. In the dusk the attractive looking spot caused us to stop and read the menu. It sounded just right and we were rewarded by a really wonderful meal and terrific service. We started with the mussels cioppino, a full plate with a tasty tomato garlic base... More

I had the shrimp and grits for breakfast. It was a nice size portion and very good, for 10 bucks. My husband's breakfast also came with grits and fresh fruit. We sat outside with our dogs. :)

We visited during restaurant week and were able to enjoy the 3-course menu, but the regular menu also offered many tempting choices. Our server was attentive and did a very nice job, and everyone enjoyed their selections. The seating is comfortable and the noise level was moderate, allowing for easy conversation. B Matthews offers good value and is in a... More

I really had higher hopes for this quaint friendly & attentive staffed place. Although I was the only patron at a late 3:30 pm lunch. Maybe I had ordered the "wrong" item? A lamb gyros sandwich for 12 bucks, with a small side of unripened fruit. I had a very delicious, made from scratch apple pecan breaded speciality pudding ($7)... More

Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm happy to hear we hit the mark for you in many areas but the input you've provided about what you found less than satisfactory is incredibly valuable to us. We rolled out a brand new dinner menu this week and we'll be doing the same with our breakfast and lunch menus next... More
