“Great breakfast spot”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

After eating the complimentary hotel breakfasts all week, we decided to treat ourselves at Goose Feathers. The breakfast is very good. I recommend the "Bird's nest," which is a bed of grits covered in melted Vermont white cheddar and a good helping of salsa in the middle and then topped with a couple of poached eggs. Even better is the service. We were sitting outside, so I went inside in search of napkins. Everywhere you look, there is wait staff either delivering orders to tables or pre-clearing tables. I saw the management speaking to customers, asking how everything was and actually listening to thei answers! During my napkin search, I actually spoke to one of the managers or maybe one of the owners. I learned that Goose Feathers has been there for 28 years. All of their pastries, muffins, etc. are homemade there. I also learned that they tour France a few years back to learn more about croissant and pastry making. And, I found out that we came at a good time as there were only a few people in line, whereas there is usually a line out the door, which we saw while we were eating. Definitely worth the trip, but I'd suggest going on a weekday when the lines are shorter and the diners are in more of a hurry to eat and go.

“Super friendly place!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Waited in a line to get in to order and were all prepared to take it to go, since the crowded place didn't seem to have a chance of having seat in for our party of 10. But the staff gave us menus and worked out a seating arrangement for us despite the crowds! Everyone was very friendly and got us our food quickly. Egg dishes are very tasty and the restaurant is perfectly located in historic Savannah. Make it a stop on your trip!

“Amazing food, lived in savannah 16 years”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

My girlfriend and I went for a light lunch. We've both lived in savannah for many years and had never been somehow. We were greeted and helped extremely fast. Even if the food had been awful, the service alone would have been worthwhile. The food however was extremely good (we ordered potato salad and salmon Blt) and we will definitely return many times.

“Awesome food quality!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Small seating area but efficient staff turns tables quickly. Extremely clean place and very well managed. Prices are OK and portions are good. We were impressed with the taste of the several entrees we had. Deli-type operation. Will be happy to return.

“Unrealistic expectations met...”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We showed up with 8 adults and 10 kids. They sat us in 15 minutes without disturbing other patrons during the busy lunch hour. The food was delivered in under 10 minutes once ordered and they were great sandwiches. Very impressed.
