Food and service was very good. Greeted at the door with a cheery smile. Seated immediately drinks came quickly (the sweet tea exactly as it should be). The orders arrived quickly and food was very good.

Popped in for a drink on our way back to the hotel and sat at the bar. Wow, the staff here seem very happy and were very friendly. We were sitting next to a station where the wait staff entered orders etc so we chatted to several of them too and they were all pretty upbeat. It was a pleasure... More

Converted cotton warehouse. Mostly natural rock walls, Open beam ceiling, Limited view of river. Good food, adequate service, great atmosphere. We were there with a group of 5 adults and two children. Others liked the chicken ruben and the hamburgers. I opted for philly steak. All were very good.

Stopped by for something to eat after getting off the riverboat cruise. Food is good. Restaurant was full so it took a little time to get our food. I ordered the chicken tenders. They are huge! Could not eat them all. Had to get a take home box. Love the spud fries and hush puppies. Hubby had one of their... More

Family owned and operated since 1976, Spankys serves up the worlds best chicken finger! The story goes like this, in 1976, a few friends wanted to start a restaurant on River Street in Savannah. Then, the booming River Street we know today was only a dirt road, with only a few spots for dining on the waterfront. Enter two innovative friends who cut up a few pieces of tender, white meat chicken, battered and fried them to perfection, and said to each other 'hey, son, lets call them chicken fingers!' And so Spanky's was born, and its still run by the same man and his family and loyal wonderful staff today! Come on down and dine on a piece of Savannah history with us--we're waitin' on ya!
