Terrible food. I ordered a hamburger steak, cooked medium. It came out like a piece of charcoal, just as tough. I have visited this restaurant in ;the past and the food has always been bad. I would not recomment it to others.

Stopped for lunch while running errands. Pleasant surprise to find they have lunch specials. I had the fried shrimp and had a adequate serving size. 1 side and hush puppies included.

When you need to splurge for your occasional fix of fried seafood in Savannah, there is no better place than Carey Hilliard. We stopped in for dinner while we waited out a raging thunderstorm and enjoyed a delicious oyster dinner with cole slaw and baked potato. If you're looking for nothing fancy, home-cooking and good fried seafood, give them a... More

Wow, what a disappointment this restaurant has become. Wanting seafood for dinner, I told my companion of a restaurant (Carey Hilliard's) that I would frequent in my days as a resident of Savannah. They were known for good food, reasonable prices and efficient service. I made a liar out of myself. Apon entering the establishment we were meet with a... More

After four times visiting this place (the last three were not by my choice) I truly wonder how this place remains in business. I have never had a single good meal here. the reason they do not know that is because once you get your food your server probably not return to make sure all is good. On my last... More

Stopped here for lunch. Super menu with lots of choices. I got the house special which was BBQ and it was just what I was looking for. Service was fast and friendly. We will be back when we are in Savannah.

There are several of these restaurants around Savannah. The food is good, and they offer a good variety. It is very good place to take your family and/or small children. Prices were very competitive.

While traveling I decided to have dinner here. I ordered the smoked and then fried chicken. The flavor was wonderful. The only issue is the double cooking caused some of the meat to dry out and become hard. That said there was more than enough to fill me up. The service was quick and my server very friendly. The hostess... More

Good food. I ordered a large BBQ plate and my wife ordered a regular BBQ plate. The only difference we saw was I got 1 more piece toast. Not satisfied with a piece of bread for an additional 2 Dollar charge.

Lived in Savannah 42 years. Carey Hilliards is what it is. Restaurants all over town, each one as the same as the next. It's where the locals eat. Fried seafood and bbq. Some of the best sweet tea you'll find in the south. For many of us who live in Savannah Carey Hilliards is where you ate every Sunday after... More
