Ordered the catch of the day, snapper, grilled and mussels. Snapper came blackened instead and they had no more snapper to correct it. Mussel shells were cracked, like hit with a hammer, so did not know if they opened on their own. Second round of drinks came wrong. A lot of money for bad food and no service.

Hello, It is disappointing to us that you did not have a more positive experience. We are very sorry that the order was not prepared to your liking initially. We did try our best to rectify the situation by offering to replace it with fresh Mahi but understand that this is not the dish you had your heart set on.... More

I'm not going to go into great detail just due to the fact this place doesn't seem to have a bad reputation, I'm just going with the thought I went on a bad night. It was a Tue. night and very slow, only a couple of people dining. They had a special that night, low country boil. After ordering I... More

The location (dockside :) and the staff are the stars of this casual dining place. We arrived at happy hour and had some reasonably priced cocktails and a couple of beers on their pleasant patio. Lots of people-watching, a nice view of the park and the river, tasty apps and extremely friendly service.

The food was good and the atmosphere was even better. We ate outside and it was nice to sit and watch the people walk by and it's a great view of the river. The service was also great and the hostess was very helpful with tips on the area tourism. If you are visiting Savannah it's a place for some... More

Love trying seafood from places located near a body of water. This place is local and has tremendous character. It it like eating in a old pub from the days of pirates. We decided to eat dinner at the bar versus waiting for a table. Our bartenders were funny and nice along with superb service. My drink was great and... More

Delicious food, great service, great view, good people. Rachael made sure we were satisfied with the quality of our food and was so sweet. Do yourself a favor when in Savannah, eat local not at a chain.

...and they weren't very good. Sangria was on special it was dank red wine with some ice cubes and a mushy strawberry. Daiquiri wasn't good at all. Beers were good and prices were acceptable.
