While vacationing in Savannah we wanted to try local cuisine not in the tourist section of town. What we found was a wonderful surprise that is everything and more. Tortugas Island Grill is a must stop for any foodie. The food, service, and atmosphere is simply exceptional. Note: Start wtth the fried shrimp appetizer.

Everything we ordered was delicious. The crab cake Benedict was perfectly cooked. The crab cake was moist and filled with fresh crab. The eggs had the luscious creamy egg yoke that combined with the hollandaise sauce was heavenly. The biscuits are freshly made and were moist and buttery. The breakfast sausage is locally made and had the perfect amount of... More

One of the best burgers I have had in a long time. My father had the fried shrimp which were fresh, local and delicious. Both our meals were a good value ...bang for the buck. They made us some tasty Bloody Mary's as well.

My 84 year old father and I have a lot of burgers under our belts and both of us agreed this was amongst the best. Just the right fat content and quantity of meet and perfect marriage of bread, Swiss and sautéed mushrooms. Bloody Mary was also a stand out. FREAKIN AWESOME!

It is a little pricey but it is very tasty. The crab cakes here are amazing. Every item my family ordered was tasty. Come here after a trip to the beach.

We just ate brunch here for Mother's Day. We had a table of 4 adults and 2 children. Our server was good, and the food was good. However, about 10 minutes after we paid our $65 bill a teenaged boy who seemed to be acting as hostess/busser came to our table and said "excuse me, we need you to leave... More

I used "near me now" and found this place. Cute atmosphere and the food was really great. I got the Jamaican Hot Mama and it was delicious. Friends that we were with all enjoyed their meal as well. The waitress was also kind and helpful.

I've been to Tortugas several times now. For breakfast I had Crab Cake Benedict. What a unique and awesome dish. Plenty of crabmeat and combinations of spices! An I entrée enjoyed for dinner was their Chutney Grouper special: Quaint restaurant with an attentive and knowledgeable staff of servers. I will visit every time my journeys from Virginia Beach takes me... More
