I had seen this online, not sure where. We were looking for somewhere new for our last night in Savannah, and I remembered this, so off we went. Hidden away in Thunderbolt, a town near Tybee Island, this is a rather unassuming place...not fancy, with mismatched chairs, etc. Quaint. I ordered the fried green tomato appetizer and Caesar salad.

Our cemetery tour guide recommended this place. Since it was close and we were hungry, we tried it. What a gem, friendly service and outstanding food. The amaretto bread pudding is stone cold, although served warm, delicious. This place is on our return list!

This place is a favorite of mine. I haven't had one thing from the menu that I don't love. Everything tastes good and the servers are so friendly. Definitely recommend for brunch and even dinner.

I have had about 10 meals at this place and all have been excellent. This charming restaurant is off the beaten path just a few minutes from historic Savannah and well worth the short drive. Even basic items seem to be better prepared, like a hamburger-its great...Last time I had two picky eaters with me and both were raving about... More

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.
