That's what our lunch companion said. Personally, we recommend the shrimp and grits and the roasted vegetable platter. Everyone was delighted and the view of the river can't be beat. After, go downstairs for a walk along the river.

Very pleasant location by the river especially if you seat on the terrace outside. Warm service. Food is just regular: not much imagination in the menu. Try the crab soup for something original. Reasonably priced

It is Savannah so you kind of have to browse for spots on the street or find a garage. I think they may provide a couple but they are always full.
