If you stop here for a drink make sure you go upstairs to check out the Hero's hall. It is an extremely humbling experience. They have a big section dedicated to 9/11 that left me speechless.

Because it was a couple of weeks ago, I am not sure what we ate, but do remember saying how very good it was in between chews. We sat upstairs and watched that waitress run her bum off yet never did she appear harried or put out. A great gal and asset to the restaurant. She even ran downstairs to... More

What a wonderful place. Their Cuban is to Die for. We sat on the deck overlooking Savanah River, watching the ships coming in while enjoying over fantastic Lunch and sipping on a Harp. Couldn't get any better. Cant wait to come back.

While the food and drink were okay, the service was terrible. I would even suggest looking at the responses to some of the poorer reviews; it clearly reads like "Thanks for your opinion, but we don't care." It's really not that hard to make people feel inclusive rather than invalidated, as they did. Apparently, refusing to acknowledge me how I... More
