Ducked in here with friends on a rainy Sunday. Not very clean and smelled musty. Very touristy, with standard Southern fare. Lots of fried, grits, green tomatoes and pecans... But the food was very tasty and the service was pleasant and efficient. Had some good local beers and all of our meals were very nice. Just didn't like the smell,... More

Good live music and fairly good seafood at a reasonable price. Not a typical River Street tourist trap.

Beautiful riverfront restaurant with great atmosphere. Service was very slow and the food was a great disappointment. We ordered a fish entree for $20 each. It came out with one very small piece of fish, coleslaw that had NO dressing on it at all. Because I don't eat fries, I substituted it with Mac and Cheese which was very dry... More

Service was good but the food was not what we expected. The seafood was at best average & we thought the dishes were overpriced. The location is the driver here. We live on the ocean & eat a lot of fresh seafood. We have to question whether the Grouper Florentine was made with grouper. Presented very much like red snapper.

Went for lunch and wasn't impressed. Below average food and extremely overpriced. Could have been what I ordered, but it was just not that good. I probably wouldn't go back.

Both of us were in the mood for some fresh seafood, and this didn't disappoint. The shrimp dinner was cooked to perfection, with spot on seasonings just enough to allow the (same day catch) fresh to come through. A winner!

The atmosphere was great and the service was good but the food wasn't what I expected. I have a growing 8 year old boy, so I asked the server how many shrimp come on the kids portion and she said 6. So that wasn't very many for him so I ordered him the adult entree and their were 6 shrimp.... More

My husband and I came here for a light dinner. We weren't really hungry and just wanted some appetizers and drinks. After wandering by several restaurants on the street, and running out of options, we took a quick look at their menu and decided to give them a try...good choice! I had scallops and my husband had hummus and sliders.... More

From the great view of the river to the shrimp and grits, fresh salads, and all types of seafood, this restaurant is one of our favorites in Savannah.

Dined here for lunch on numerous occasions. Always good service and the seafood is always fresh. Good location right along the river. Always recommend when people ask where to eat. Reasonable prices.
