You will come for the delicious seafood. The steamed oysters are superb though they could have been steamed a touch longer. Next we shared the deviled crab basket. It was fantastic as was our side if Cole slaw. Only one server for the entire place on a Friday night which struck me as odd. No rush to return, but the... More

Tonight was my last night in Savannah before heading back home and I couldn't be happier that I chose to enjoy a wonderful dinner at Desposito's. I started on the main course that I had ordered and quickly decided that I'd be ordering more. I ended up taste testing nearly half the items on their menu. The seafood was fresh... More

OK, this place is little more than a dive but we eat here on a regular basis. Great food and service. Nothing fancy so don't be disappointed by the newspaper on the tables but if you want good food cooked well then you need to try it. Our favorites are crab legs, shrimp and Blue Crab when available.

For starters the pictures are very accurate! Yes, a hole in the wall describes it well. More of a locals hang out and a lot of folks know each other (social hang out of Thunderbolt). Have to know the area or it's tough to find. Dirt roads back to the Wilmington River, the view from the road is very pretty.... More

We had crab legs and shrimp. Both were very good. Later had the deviled crab. It was very very good. Sarah made the key lime pie but it was good too. Sarah Lee that is. Google maps had it a little wrong but got us close. Definitely will come here again. Their house sauce has a nice kick. Nice people... More

Ain't much to see, but the steamed oysters are to die for. If you favor mon and pop dives...and I do... this is as good as it gets.

I have been several times and it is always spotless, food is excellent, and the staff is friendly and attentive. The only place to go in Savannah for fresh seafood.

If you want blue crabs this is the place and the highlight. If they did not have crabs there are a lot of other places you can go to in savannah.

My husband used to come here all the time when he lived and worked in savannah - and he wanted to share it with me. So we got some drinks (he had beer) and I order a wine, and she filled this cup to the brim for $5... We both ordered the Low-country Boil which was fantastic - everything was... More

I had really looked forward to visiting this restaurant, but was a little nonplussed. The one thing that was AWESOME was the steamed oysters....they were wonderful and fresh. The shrimp were OK, but honestly I could have done just as well or better. Corn on the cob was sort of a ripoff at $2.25 for what looked like a prepackaged... More
