There are too many options in river front, so we were not sure where to go! We checked a few places and put our name for their 30 to an hour wait and kept waking. When we checked boars head, the hostess said the wait will be about 30 min, however the manager Modey found a table right away and... More

My daughter and I ate dinner here on our first night in Savannah. The host and server were very friendly and didn't mind that we ordered one entree and appetizer to share. My daughter doesn't eat any of the usual choices on the kids' menu so we shared an adult entree. The server (I'm so sorry but I've forgotten his... More

Good food - good service - great location. Hubby had their burger $11 with bacon and a peach dressing. I had the veggie sandwich $12 - awesome grilled veggies, topped with melted gouda on a baguette. Bill for two including his beer - $28.89 before tax. Definitely recommend!

Enjoyed our dining experience. I had the rib-eye, my girlfriend had the chicken pica-ta. Both were great. My rib-eye was as good as I have had. Wait staff were attentive.

Stopping in for linner, they were serving from their tavern menu. I had a bean and ham soup that was amazing… very flavorful and meaty. I really enjoyed it. The rest of lunch was typical fare, but tasty. The service from Rachel was great… very attentive, but relaxed. I enjoyed the warm ambiance and the age of the building.

Special visit to Savannah just to come here for another bowl of their superb shrimp and grits, which despite the anticipation exceeded our expectations. Joe, our waiter, was super helpful (including his recommendation of the chocolate bread pudding. Can't wait for the next drive between NJ and Miami so we can repeat!
