Simply amazing! Were in Savannah on successive weekends and ate here twice. Service, food, atmosphere all first rate but casual. You have the try the shrimp and grits and the bouillabaisse, but the stuffed shrimp were outstanding as well.
This was our second time in Savannah and we ate here the first time. My husband loved the food and wanted to return. Food great and all was well until my husband took a big gulp of his beer and as he was setting his...glass down saw a fly in it. He had about 1/4 of beer left after that last gulp and we said something to the waitress. Her response "Well, it's the south, there's flies."
Not the right answer. There's flies everywhere, but people don't want them in their drinks or food. I'm still giving this place a high rating but management needs to talk to staff about appropriate responses to customers.More
Other than being a little hard to find (since it was our first time going here), it was a wonderful dining experience. Love the ambience! We had a great server too. Very laid back and casual but was very professional at the same time. Ok,...so the food.... really, really delicious. We had a party of 8 and everyone seemed to be very happy with their choice. I had the salmon and cheese grits but for an appetizer, I ordered their special which was a caprese salad. It was so delicious and a great start to my meal. On to dessert.... I ordered the bread pudding because our server said it had literally won awards. I mean it WAS good, but someone else at our table ordered the Jack Daniels pecan pie. Y'all.... heaven on a plate. Get the pie!More
She Crab Soup and Bouillabaisse, what a combination!!! That is a meal I will always remember, however, both the wife and I wish we had split the Bouillabaisse, it was way too large for one person to eat by themselves. They also had a Jack...Daniels chocolate pecan pie that was to die for.More
We started off with crab bisque soup which was excellent! We moved on to spinach salad, with pecans and fresh blue cheese. And finished with the Grilked swordfish, mashed potatoes, and steamed sweet peas. Swordfish was cooked to perfection almost melting in your mouth. Vegetables...were just right. Flavors mixed really well. Would highly recommend this to any one. Service was great too. They take reservations.More
We stumbled in on a weekday midafternoon off time and had Chris as our server. Service and recommendations were spot on, food delivered accurately and promptly. Everyone was pleased with their meals and drinks. Would definitely visit again next time.
