A proper Irish pub. Irish whiskey choices are fantastic and they had the food to go with it. We always sit on the second floor balcony which is the best spot in Savannah to have a drink, watch the boats, and the people. The value is on par with any similar place in Savannah but the atmosphere is old school... More

Great entertainment (sorry, I can't remember the musician's name). Old favorites - Molly Malone, Fields of Athenry, Loch Lomond, and countless others including a few sing-alongs. He very engaging with the audience. The place was pretty full, a fun night out.

Enjoyed a pint on the upstairs porch. Very friendly server. Love all things Irish so the Easter Uprising exhibit was interesting. The memorial wall is touching.

Absolutely loved this pub! Located in the middle of business district on the river. Lots of friendly staff and customers. Large variety of beers and full liquor bar. Felt extremely welcomed and enjoyed meeting new people from all over the world. Check out the "walls of honor" upstairs. Perfect tribute to those lost in attacks on our country and to... More

Kevin Barry's has so much to recommend. On the first floor one enters through the pub. The dining room with space for live entertainment is just steps away. The second floor is a dining area called the Hall of Heroes honors this nations Special Operations Forces. The displays are well worth the time to view them. In front is an... More

Came with a bachelorette party. It was early afternoon, and only our second stop on the Slow Bike Ride, so everyone very sober. The place was fairly empty but, my word, the bartender was remarkably rude. Her face dropped when she saw the number of us who walk in. She balked when someone in our group asked for ten shots...

Corkwoman *sigh* I am sorry. I have no idea what shots where ordered so I cannot comment on the "assembly" of them. I do know that some bars make certain shots different ways but, nonetheless, there should not have been an "argument" about it especially if the 10 shots were the same shots and it was not 10 different shots...

Our first time at the riverfront and went in to enjoy a nice lunch, well that didn't happen since we were eating our meal and the roaches were visible! Ruined the whole day!
