“A Regular Spot for Locals!”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Tortugas is a great little local restaurant slightly off the beaten path. They serve Southern style food with a Caribbean flair. They also serve beer, wine, and these great organic agave margaritas (you must try one!). My favorite meals are the meatloaf sandwich, blackened chicken pasta, and shrimp & grits. They also have an outstanding brunch until 3 on Sat & Sun that rocks my world. I lovelovelove their version of Juevos Rancheros, and they've got yummy french toast that is topped with a unique pecan syrup they make. Oh, their burger is completely delicious. Try anything, you will love it! It is also great that it is close enough to downtown to not feel like a trek, but far enough away that they are never uncomfortably crowded.

“A mixture of Maryland, low country and caribbean flavors.”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

This is a great place with an eclectic menu with something sure to please. The decor is tasteful if a little stark. Food is very good and service better. Lunch and dinner Tuesday to Saturday and Sunday brunch.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Located across the street (River Dr.)from the river in Thunderbolt (East Savannah), last right (coming from Savannah) before the Wilmington River/Inter-coastal Waterway bridge. Intimately small restaurant, small choices, but VERY tasty! Grilled teriyaki shrimp over grits was a wake-up for my taste buds.
