Stopped here and sat at the bar. Had a great view of the river. Nice selection of local craft beer. Warm chicken salad on croissant with melted harvarti cheese was delicious. Next time we are here will definitely have dinner. Great location, food and service.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Boar's Head. It is in an old building loaded with atmosphere, in the riverfront area of Savannah. The food was very well prepared and delicious. Don't miss it!

The food is very yummy and the service was awesome! Give it a try... you will not be disappointed. Shrimp primavera was full of veggies and the creme brûlée was the best! Almost liked the plate!

We sat at the bar and split an appetizer and drank a beer. The bartender was very friendly. Neat decor, too. The atmosphere seemed a bit stuffy, with "elevator music" playing in the background. It seemed a little formal for the area, but we enjoyed...More
